Annotations

The annotations commands are commands that let you create informative objects in SkyReal.

3D annotation (alias writing in 3D)

This commands allow you to write in VR.

When the command is selected in the Pie menu, stay clicked on the action trigger on one of the controller and move the hand.

By default, the 3d annotation is in the user collaborative color with a size of 5mm.

The custom parameters of this commands are:

  • Writing line thickness (0.005m): The thickness of the 3d annotation (warning, a big value can have some ugly results)
  • Writing delta between two points (0.01m): The minimum delta required to create the next segment of the annotation (can be considered as the precision)
  • Use collaborative color (true): this value indicate whether the annotation color should be the same as the user color or not.
  • Annotation color: If the previous variable is false, apply this color to the annotation.

Measure

This commands allow you to take a measure between two parts in VR. 

When the command is selected in the Pie menu, the light saber turns red.

To create the measure:

  • Point on the first point of the measure and click on the action trigger of the controller. 
  • Point on the second point of the measure and click on the action trigger of the controller.

To deport the measure, its possible to select it and move it with a manipulation command.

Spawn 3D arrow

This command allows you to create 3D arrows in SkyReal.

When you have selected this command, your hands will appear as pens instead of controllers. You will then be able to draw arrows with both hands (one at a time, you cannot create two arrows simultaneously) by pressing and holding the button under your index and releasing it where you want it to stop.

The arrows you will have created are movable, you can thus reorient them once created.

You have the possibility to modify a certain number of parameters :

  • Thickness : its default value is set to 0.005 meter, its value must be between 0.001 and 0.1 meter
  • Is Using Collab Color : if checked, the color of the arrow will be set to the same as the color of the user drawing it
  • Arrow Color : if you have unchecked the previous option, you can chose the color of the arrow to be the one you want using the color picker
  • Is Dotted Line : if checked, you will draw the arrow as a dotted line rather than a continuous line
  • Direction Pointed By Arrow : by default, it is set to be pointing towards the point where you began to draw the arrow. It can be modified to point towards the point where you stopped drawing, it can point towards both points or none of them.

Spawn 3D symbol

This command allows you to create 3D symbols such as interrogation marks, exclamation marks among many other informative objects.

You will then be able to draw symbols with both hands (one at a time, you cannot create two symbols simultaneously) by pressing and holding the button under your index and releasing it when it has reached the size you want it to be created with. The further from the start point you hold the button pressed, the bigger the symbol will be, the nearer from the start point, the smaller.

The symbols you will have created are movable, you can thus reorient them once created.

You have the possibility to modify a certain number of parameters :

  • Is Using Collab Color : if checked, the color of the symbol will be set to the same as the color of the user drawing it
  • Symbol 3D Color : if you have unchecked the previous option, you can chose the color of the symbol to be the one you want using the color picker
