Glad to see BimX on the Vision Pro so quickly. 

How to we rotate our walk or view?  I want to pinch and pull the centre of our view so we don't have to rotate our neck 180º.  Is there a command I am missing?

Hi RobertMicacchi,
Right now within full immersion there is no way to reposition the model, it works as 'real world' in that sense. Can you please elaborate more on why would you want to rotate the environment and model while you are in it? Is it because the too much rotation you need to do or you'd like to use the Vision Pro while you are seated? Your input here is highly appreciated.
Thank in advance,
Szabolcs

Hi rob2218,

By selecting the box with outward arrows icon in the top right corner, you can enter full immersion mode. Navigation is fairly simple there. With a pinching gesture, you can start moving within the scene, and pinching again will stop your movement. You can easily adjust the speed and direction within full immersion mode.

Cheers, Szabolcs

@Szabolcs Kari I'd like to re-emphasize the need for AR, or mixed reality. The ability to place the model on a large conference table and walk around it, or in an open field at true scale would really enhance the design. Currently, an app called "Arki" does this on phones and iPads. They are working on adding this same feature to their native Vision Pro app. Don't allow them to beat you to it and be late to the party! Thanks!

Hi Szabolcs,

 

 Thank you for responding so quickly. I did stand up and was pleasantly surprised that it is so obvious and easy to just turn around and walk another direction in the virtual model!  To answer your question, yes, it would be nice to sit down and pinch and drag the environment to rotate around me. 

We did do a demonstration with the client today, and they were impresseD. They too complained that they didn’t want to have to stand to turn around. I would like to request that we could rotate the model by pinching.

Didn't find the answer?
