Projects in SYMMETRY allow users to sync SketchUp models and associated feedback between SYMMETRY VR and the SYMMETRY Plugin for SketchUp amongst all assigned members.
The Projects page is displayed as the first page by default when visiting app.symmetryvr.com and can be accessed by clicking the Projects button at the top of the page.
In this article, we will cover:
- Create a new project
- Add a model to a project
- Add a point cloud file to a project
- Upload a revised model or download a model from a project
- Add team members to a project and change permissions
- View the activity of a project
- View the activity and markups for a specific model
- Delete a project
Create a new project
Click the +Project button at the top right of the Projects page to create a new project.
Enter the project name and description and click Create Project.
Add a model to a project
After entering the project information, click Next to proceed to "Model upload". Only SketchUp models can be uploaded from this screen (see below for point cloud files).
Models can be added to a project later by visiting the project page and hovering over New file.
Add a point cloud file to a project
Hover over the New file box and click on Handle point cloud file.
Creating a point cloud file within a project in SYMMETRY Cloud allows users to add and share markups for point cloud models created in SYMMETRY VR.
Point cloud models cannot be uploaded to SYMMETRY Cloud.
The only purpose of the point cloud file is to hold and share Markup data for point cloud models.
Download a model from a project
Click on your model within the project page and click the icon under Download to download the model.
Add team members to a project and change permissions
Click Edit, followed by the + (plus) icon under Members to add a new team member to your project.
In order to add a new member to a project, they must first be assigned to a Team. To learn more about creating a Team, please see the overview in SYMMETRY Cloud - Teams.
Project members can be assigned the following roles:
- Owner (full-range of privileges)
- Editor (cannot edit project info)
- Viewer (only capable of viewing projects in VR)
The permissions for the user that created the project are set to Owner by default and cannot be changed.
View the activity of a project
Project activity provides an overview of everything done in regards to a particular project via SYMMETRY VR, Cloud, and Plugin for SketchUp, including new model uploads and revisions, markups, team member changes, and more.
Project activity can be accessed via the More link under the Activity column.
View the activity and markups for a specific model
In addition to project activity, specific model activity can also be observed from SYMMETRY Cloud, including model revisions and further details related to markups.
Model activity can be accessed by clicking on the model name from the project page followed by Markups.
Delete a project
On the Projects page, each project has a trash can icon on the right of the project title bar. Click on the icon and proceed to Delete Project.
