The Issues viewer plugin provides you with a convenient way for issue management. You can review existing issues or send new ones directly to 3D Repo, all without leaving the AutoCAD application. I'll show you how to do the following:
Download and install the plugin prior to opening the AutoCAD application
Open your 3D model in AutoCAD
Use a Perspective Camera Viewpoint for better issue reviewing
Feel free to open a federated model or hide/reveal model elements in the Selection Tree if necessary
Load Project Issues
Click on the Issues icon located in the 3D Repo tab (main ribbon menu)
In the 3D Repo Issues Viewer window provide your login details and click Login. You can switch between 3drepo.io or ca.3drepo.io as the domain server.
Navigate over to your model container by selecting the relevant Teamspace, Project and Model. Scroll over the list of issues loaded from 3D Repo.
Issue pins are not supported nor visible in the AutoCAD environment.
View Issues in the model
Click on any of the Issues to see them in the model. That will update your camera position as per 3D Repo. To access more of the information about the issue, click on the grey arrow. Once you open an issue, you will get all of the information about it, including any comments & resources.
Filter the Issues List
Use the search bar or the filter icon to reduce the list of issues you see in AutoCAD. It's a great way to help you find what you need.
Filter By Status, Priority, Type, Assigned to, Created by, Date From/To
Or search by typing any keyword/phrase
Create a new Issue
You can create new issues, comments and markups in AutoCAD and send them directly to 3D Repo. Other project members are able to review them in 3D Repo or their own AutoCAD model using our plugin.
Click on the Plus button located at the bottom of the issues list
Fill in the information required, just as you would do in 3D Repo
You can upload an image or take a screenshot of your model view
When you take a model screenshot (3D/2D View) you will be able to create a markup, just as you would do in 3D Repo
Click on the picture if you wish to delete/retake it before saving your issue
Click on the Save icon
Comment on Issues
Scroll down to the Comments section to read previous comments or to add a new one. Comments in AutoCAD are instantly sent to 3D Repo. Click on the Refresh icon to load the latest information from 3D Repo.
You can click on comments to update your camera position as you would with individual issues. This would only work on comments created in 3D Repo.
Add a comment
Click on the comments box and start typing
Click on the Save icon to add your comment
Add a markup
Take a model screenshot to create markup
In the pop-up window draw/write anything you like
Click on the X icon to close the window
Your mark up will appear in the new comment section
Open/Add Resource files
Once you have created a new issue, a new tab will appear called Resources. Open it to add additional documents to the issue. URL links will open in the default web browser and documents will be saved locally.
Supported resource file formats include PDF, Images/Videos and URL Links.
