Thanks Darren. I was hoping to be able to walk around site during construction and take the 3D model with me. Are their plans to create an iPad or iPhone app to view NWD models? Thanks Peter
A good first step would be too look at the hardware requirements for Freedom, especially the RAM, plus the size of the NWD files you want to work with (assuming you are going with remote operation so the data *and* program have to be stored on the device). Then consider what is available in iPads/Phones, and what is required for basic operation.
If its going to be done on a reasonably sized device smaller than a laptop, then I think the means would have to be software-as-a-service, whether it is hosted on a site-based server (all sorts of end-user infrastructure investment required) or over the internet (requires fast, rock-solid wireless connection).
I have the same issue. I want to walk offline onsite with a nwd model.
There is a solution to view the nwd files on your ipad. When you use buzzsaw you can download the app and upload your model to the buzzsaw environment. You need an internet connection for this when you download the model on your ipad. In the buzzsaw app you can view the nwd file. This wors very smooth. Don't upload files bigger then 5mb.
Only disadvantage is the lack of walk mode. But you can show your client the factory.
