Version 3.6 of 3DInteractives’s API with many new features has been released.

New features include:

  • Asynchronous, parallel database updates from multiple sources are now possible during rendering. Updates are shown instantly.
  • VGR databases may contain reference points for geo-referenced coordinates.
  • Double precision functions for camera, lights, bounding boxes, etc. for more precise interaction in geo-referenced models.
  • Units and conversions between databases with different units are supported.
  • Order Independent Transparency for displaying transparent layers efficiently.
  • New database commit interface supports a progress callback for improved user interaction.
  • Automatic compaction while committing VGR databases (as an optional feature) improves performance of large databases after incremental changes.
