Last year @ D-studio, we have been very busy developing a number of applications built around Sketchup. Next months, we will release them gradually.
To start, we announce the 4D Virtual Builder release 3.2. Built with a new xd-technology, this release will be better, faster and focusing on future developments, like 4D web applications, a Lean Last Planner System, 5D quantities take off and the embedding in automation processes.
Improved Gantt Chart: All 4D and planning activity will be steered from a central Gantt Chart visualization. It’s the heart of the new release. Just like it is for planning, management and monitoring. See the new Gantt Chart in action.
TimeLine: To get an overall view, to view changes over a period of time, or to visualize what has been changed since previous dates, we have introduced the notion of a timeline. Simpler than the Gantt chart, it is quite a fascinating management tool.
Days, Hours, Minutes, ...: Sometimes it’s necessary to apply a lower time scale like minutes, or seconds…. Fi. to schedule the mounting and disassembly of a concert stage or podium.
FastMode: 4D Visualization is always faster in this release 3.2. But to solve the problem of rather disorganized models responding very slow, we introduce several speed options for 4D visualization. The fast mode is really instantly. See FastMode in action.
Many more: Of course we have implemented even more features and upgrades. On our YouTube channel we've added a new playlist dedicated to 4D Virtual Builder 3.2. In this playlist we are (and will be) uploading video tutorials about every new or upcoming feature.
