    Ivan,

    We have 3 ways of using the 2D sheets to get to a location in the 3D.

    Sheet overlay
    Jump to 3D
    Jump to 3D with sheet overlay

    Can you elaborate on how you would use coordinates.

    Not sure if this is what Ivan would be going for, but it would be especially useful to have a simple "Report Coordinates" tool like Revit or a tooltip in the bottom right, reporting x, y, z, similar to Google Maps and other software.

    For example, we will always have a Grids and Levels file sent to trades to use as a reference for aligning models. Sometimes, especially for those who can't just "Aquire Shared Coordinates" it would be nice to hop into a model, pick two points and align to that in order to achieve alignment. Yes, we can always use other software to display those two points, but where Revizto is already based off coordinates, it would be handy to be able to report them, especially for layout and civil teams to participate more heavily in coordination.

    Have you tried the 'Elevation' measurement? It does report the x, y, z location.

    Oh gosh. That's amazing! Learning new things every day. Every time I've used the elevation tool I just look at what is displaying on the 3D rather than the x,y,z values. Didn't even realize it displayed x,y,z like the other tools. I'll definitely being sharing this out. Thanks, Laura!

    Is there a way to snap it to gridlines like the "snapping" measurement tool? I found a workaround of first snapping with the "Snapping" tool and then switching, but I can't snap directly with the elevation tool.

    Hi Laura, I have observed the 'Elevation' function in measurements, which successfully provides the x, y, and z coordinates.

    However, I have a feature request for the reverse scenario: when I obtain coordinates (x, y, z) from a 2D construction drawing, it would be incredibly beneficial if there were an input box available for me to enter these coordinates and allocate the corresponding position within the Revizto model element.

    Thanks

    Kaden Kartchner I just found a workaround for this today, use the snapping measurement, which can snap to gridlines, place both the extremities to the same spot, than switch to the elevation measurement. The marker will be at the crossing of the gridlines and the coordinates will be shown

    Hope this helps!

    Laura Sharpe feature request : being able to snap the elevation measurement to gridlines

    I agree with Ivan, Revizto needs to provide a tool that allows the user you to key in the x, y, & z coordinates via an input to enable zooming to the precise coordinates as keyed in.

    Adding another voice to Ivan Wong's request. Also, as our field teams verify locations of elements on site and we try to expand field use of this tool, it would be amazing to give Project Engineers, Foremen, etc. the ability to pull up the model to check the coordinates that their surveyors/layout teams are telling them on critical elements for install and when checking control points. Gives us the ability to remove even more extra software and miscellaneous model viewers from the scramble of technology platforms that exist on our sites.
