Version 2.12

October 3rd, 2022

Major new features:

  • Table view for the library: on top of the card view, the “My models” and “Pending” sections of the library now allow to switch to a table view which allows to quickly browse models and makes it more convenient to perform several types of operations directly from the library page:

    • Rename models from the table

    • Update the visibility of one or several models at the same time

    • Update the embedding and backend access settings of one or several models at the same time

    • Copy embedding and backend tickets from the table

    • Delete multiple models at once

  • Users with Designer plans and above now have the ability to save and load parameter values using the new context menu in the parameters section of the model view page and iframes. Save the current values of parameters in a json file that can be downloaded locally and then later use the same file to load the state of parameters once again in the model. This provides an offline alternative to the Saved States feature that already exists within the platform.

  • Users with Designer plans and above can now update on their own which Geometry Backend is used for uploading. In particular, Designer and Business users are still assigned to the Rhino 6 shared system by default but can choose to switch to Rhino 7 any time they want to.

Improvements:

  • The model view page now reports more detailed feedback about computation and output exports (timeouts, output size limitations…)

  • The embedding and backend tickets, as well as the model view url, are now directly accessible in a new “Developers” section of the model view page, instead of being only accessible on the model edit page.

  • A new setting in the “Billing” settings page allows users with credits to decide whether they want to block their premium features when the credit limit is reached, or keep all features working and get an invoice for the excess credits

  • The fullscreen button for iframe provides better feedback in case going fullscreen is not possible within the hosting page or device.

  • For organizations, the credit progress bar of the Billing section now shows the credits for the entire organization.

  • The Analytics section (for both individual users and organizations) now allows differentiating credits that were spent during sessions longer than 10 minutes.

Bug fixes:

  • The AR button is now correctly displayed on the iframe, and snackbars show feedback during the generation of AR assets.

  • The wrong feedback displayed when changing models' visibility is now fixed.

  • Members of organizations can now set their profile to the “Organization” visibility level, which means every member of their own organization can find them on the platform, but they are hidden from users external to the organization.

  • For organizations, the domain form is now correctly re-enabled after domains are deleted from the list.

  • Sharing settings during model transfers now work as expected.

  • Various backend and maintenance fixes

  • New camera preset options: define preset cameras in the Edit mode and let viewers switch between the preset views with the new camera button in the viewer. By default, uploaded models will have a set of standard presets (default perspective and orthographic views)

  • Model transfers: transfer ownership of your models to other ShapeDiver users using the new Transfer button on the model cards of your library. When transferring a model, request that the target user shares back some access to the model if you need it.
