Snapshot is a raster image that is taken in a 2D or 3D window. Snapshot enables you to create attractive colored documentation of elevation views and floor plans. The Snapshot function helps you to move and calibrate a raster image into the 2D floor plan exactly in the right place and size. It is a special raster image that keeps the 3D model vertex points so you can precisely measure distances and angles on that 3D view raster image.
Command location: Documentation > Snapshot
- Same as window size: The software captures a screen shot of your 3D active window to an image with the same resolution.
- Custom size: Choosing the custom size option you can select a predefined resolution from the drop-down list at the right, as the resolution for the image’s largest size. Choose a larger value to set the final result more detailed. Using larger values will make the project file size growing larger also. Please choose the size of the snapshot carefully, as you want your project not to grow too large, because handling larger projects could make workflow slower on some machines. Otherwise if you choose a small resolution, the final image may be pixelated which can make it less useful. Please choose from the drop-down list.
You can choose the snapshot image’s file format from the drop-down list. This file format will be used during the process of the snapshot. Different file formats store images with different file size and quality conditions. Please select the desired file format.
Select the target drawing where to insert the snapshot image.
Use the Save button to save the snapshot image into an image file on your computer instead of a target drawing. Specify the path and name of the file in the appearing Save as... dialog.
