Preferences

When first launching Revizto it will force you to choose your preferences before accessing your project. After you have chosen your preferences you can modify them at any time via the “Preference” button on the top right side of your menu tool bar.

General

Once in the “Preference” settings, the “General” tab will be used to select your preferred language of the interface, measuring units and default screen for all projects.  

While still in the “Preference” settings, Revizto has several options for navigation on PC. By default Revizto is using “Game” mode. To change it, use the “Navigation” tab.

Here you can choose a navigation mode which is best for you. Game mode is our most popular for users not technical in CAD software (Revit, Navisworks, etc.) and this mode is available simultaneously with all other modes.

  • Game mode (1st person view)

Right Mouse Button – hold to rotate view (turn your virtual head)
E – float up
Q – float down
Shift + W (or A, S, D, Q, E) - move with increased speed
Double click – show the properties of the object that is currently under your cursor
The scroll wheel can be used for zooming.

In fly mode you are flying without collisions. When walk mode is switched on, you will move with collisions and gravity.

Note: Walk mode uses controls from game navigation mode.  

  • Revit mode
Orbit (around scene pivot) Shift + right mouse button, or Shift + click and hold scroll wheel
Zoom to/from pivot Use the scroll wheel of your mouse
Pan Click and hold scroll wheel
Change Pivot Ctrl + click

  • Hybrid mode
Orbit (around pivot) Hold right mouse button
Zoom to/from pivot Use the scroll wheel of your mouse

Change pivot Right-click on the desired place (on surface)
Object Properties Double click on the desired object
  • Navisworks Walk
Move forward Hold left mouse button + move mouse forward
Move backward Hold left mouse button + move mouse backward
Turn left Hold left mouse button + move mouse left
Turn right Hold left mouse button + move mouse right

Graphics settings

Use the “Graphics” tab to adjust graphics properties. Use radio-buttons to select graphics quality.

We recommend to use the “Good” option as great combination between speed and visual quality. Playing with these settings can help find the ideal balance between performance, your hardware capabilities and model size. Additionally, if you need to speed up navigation in 3D model you need to switch off “Realtime Shadows” as this very hardware intensive.

Camera settings

On the “Camera” tab, use sliders to adjust camera settings.

  • Field of View
  • Visibility Distance
  • Camera Height –height of the camera in the Walk mode

Note: Increasing the value of visibility distance can lead to “ripple on shadows” effect. To remove this effect, turn off “Realtime Shadows” and “SSAO” on the “Graphics” tab.
