  1. Hello everyone, I want to use the flyover tool to see my building from all angles as I develop the design. The trouble is, the building is 50m away from the internal origin, which seems to be the centre point that the flyover tool rotates around. I though it would be possible to move the centre point of the rotation for the flyover tool without affecting the user or internal origins, but I can't find how. I have moved the user origin onto the building but it didn't move the flyover centre point. So from this I deduce the flyover centre point is fixed to the internal origin. Please let me know how to centre the flyover tool without moving all the elements manually to the internal origin. Thanks Justin Sorry everyone - I have answered my own question! The flyover tool appears to centre on an average position at the centre of elements in the drawing. So if you are working towards the edge of all your elements, which are for example 50m wide, place a sacrifial element 50m further away. It will then centre the flyover tool over the area you are trying to edit and will scroll around that point. You might need to move your new element around a bit to make the flyover tool be precisely where you want it, but at least this will stop it from shooting off the screen. You can then delete your sacrificial element once you have completed editing.
  2. Hi, wondering if anyone has any advice -- Sorry for the cross post; I was in the wrong topic area before. I have a plugin that includes a control point that is draggable, but which also exposes one of its coordinate input fields in the OIP to allow the user to type a precise value. When the user origin has been dragged, typed values in this field get offset in ways that lead to "incorrect" values, but dragging the control point behaves as if the current User Origin is the Internal Origin. I imagine I could use GetOrigin() to find the offset and fix this behavior, but how do I detect whether the parameter changed from a drag operation (in which case I should leave it alone) or a typed value in the OIP (in which case I need to fix it)? Or is there a way to get Control Points to only look at the user origin? (the documentation on plugin parameters would suggest not) thanks
  3. Often it would be very useful to know an object's Z coordinate relative to the internal (global) origin in addition to the layer Z coordinate. For our architectural projects we place our site model DTM on the internal origin, so that Z coordinates on the DTM correspond to surveyed elevations. However, when working on other design layers whose layer elevations are set according to the elevations of, say, the respective subfloor, it becomes quite cumbersome to check the global Z coordinate (i.e. surveyed elevation) of any given 3D object. The addition of a 'global Z' or 'internal Z' coordinate field to the OIP would solve this handily.
