How to align a model in 3D Measure Up Web Application

The accuracy of measurements depends on whether the model’s coordinate system is the same as that of the measurement system. A small misalignment ie. the model is looking slightly to the side, can introduce up to 8% error in measurement. You can either use the manual alignment tool or the auto-align feature. The auto-alignment feature uses intelligent algorithms to Auto-Alignment

To automatically align a model

A. Log-in to the 3D Measure Up application.

B. Load the model. Refer: How to load a model.

C. Click on the view controls button at the top.

D. The view controls toolbar will be visible.

 

E. Click on the auto align model  icon to automatically align the model.

F. A warning box appears. Before auto aligning 3D Measure Up clears all the measurements. Click on OK, if wish to continue without saving.

G.  The application requests the 3D Measure Up API to align the model. This may take a few seconds.

H. After aligning the model is repositioned and displayed in the view.

You are ready to perform measurement operations on the model.

Aligning the model manually

To manually align a model

A. Log-in to the 3D Measure Up application.

B. Load the model. Refer: How to load a model.

C. Click on the view controls button at the top.

D. The view controls toolbar will be visible.

 

E. Click on the manually align model icon 

F. A warning box appears. Before auto aligning 3D Measure Up clears all the measurements. Click on OK, if wish to continue without saving.

G. The alignment control is displayed over the model.

H. Use the green control to rotate the model along the vertical axis.

 

I. Use the red control to rotate the model along the horizontal axis parallel to the screen.

 

J. Use the yellow control to rotate the model along the axis perpendicular to the screen.

 

K. After you position the model correctly, click on the manual align button 

L. The model is repositioned and displayed in the view.

You are ready to perform measurement operations on the model.
