I'm posting my scenarios to AIM 360 for clients with the infraworks desktop app to view our model. We've got tooltips on our buildings so that you can hover over the building and it will display the building info. I can't get these to show up on the 360 viewer - has anybody gotten tooltips to work on 360?? thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Trying to manage tooltips also. But for pipe network. Would like to show in tooltip pipe diameter. Right now I achieved partially, to show tooltip WHEN TERRAIN IS NOT SHOWN.
Don't know why is the reason. I managed that terrain is transparent (opacity factor), so I see the pipes, but tooltip does not appear. As I said, when terrain is disconnected, it appears.
Well I suppose it would've been too much to ask for this to be an easy process.
It seems scale 0,0,0 didn't change anything, but setting the scale to 0.0001 did make it invisible. However, it seems once a tooltip is actually invisible, it's gone forever. I tried "select by window" and couldn't find it. I guess an invisible tooltip would also cause problems if I ever wanted to change what the tooltip said.
I was able to reduce the scale to 0.1, 0.1, 0.1 and it's fairly tiny, invisible at the majority of angles. It seems the proximity distance is also scaled (so if you want a 100 foot promixity, you need to type in 1000 feet).
I'm going to play with inputting a custom POI that's maybe flat or transparent.
Thanks for all the help Nora!
basically worked just like you said. my buildings are a shape file, and I imported the shape file again and set the type as POI. Set the elevation to building height and then ended up making the elevation offset -1 so that each POI is actually buried just beneath the roof of my building. All my building information still came in with the shape file, so it was easy to recreate the tooltips I had in the building layer! Tooltips in 360 now work like a charm
I can't thank you enough for all your help, Nora!
