NEW Support for Conditional Formatting in Power BI
This video covers how the 3D Power BI visual included in Tracer 3D supports Conditional Formatting for color coding objects in Power BI. Conditional formatting is a great way to create heat maps!
NEW Options for Multi-View Navigation
This tutorial covers new options available for leveraging the 3D visuals “view” input and displaying categorized model geometry within multiple viewports within the 3D Power BI visual. In V3, we introduced new options for independent camera navigation for multiple views.
NEW Context Geometry Inputs
This tutorial introduces the concept of using “Context” inputs to Tracer’s 3D Power BI visual. ‘Context’ inputs are a way to flag geometry to be behave as ‘background’ information with separate visualization settings. This example shows two separate models with elements from one model being used as ‘context” for coordination purposes.
