Is it possible for me to take screenshots of 3D models that have been uploaded to my projects?
Yes! The screenshot tool in the BIM viewer allows you to capture photos of any BIM model uploaded to Fieldwire. All images taken with the screenshot tool are automatically saved under the 'Photos' tab.
From the 3D Models tab, open up a Model and then select the 'Camera' option above the measurement tool:
This will open the capture window. You are able to leverage the pivot, walk, and zoom tools to frame the shot within the capture window:
Once you've lined up the section of the model within the capture window, select the 'Capture' option to take a screenshot of the model:
The screen will flash white for a moment as a visual confirmation that a photo has been taken. Once you see the option 'Saved to photos', your screenshot will appear within the 'Photos' tab:
Once your screenshot is contained within the Photos tab, it will have the same properties as any other photo. This means you can attach the screenshot to existing tasks, export the photo, and add tags:
Note: You can leverage the 'Manage tags' option to help designate which model the screenshot originates from. (This article goes into further detail: The Photos Tab).
If you attach your screenshot to a task, you can apply markups to call out any specific areas of the screenshot:
