FARO Zone 2D 2023.8.0817 Release Notes - August 2023

Updates

Match and Clone

Fz3d_2023.7_fig9.pngUse the Match Object tool to replicate the properties of a selected object so that you can reuse the object and its properties elsewhere in your drawing.
For example, if you are creating a road drawing and you make a dashed road line that you'll need to reuse in other parts of the drawing, you can use the Match Object tool to replicate the properties of the dashed line.
Fz3d_2023.7_fig10.png

You can use the Match Object tool for many objects in your drawing, including lines, labels, dimension arrows, shapes, etc. You also use it to duplicate symbols and models.
Fz3d_2023.7_fig11.png

To use the Match Object command:

Fz3d_2023.7_fig12.pngThe Match tool appears in the HUD after you use a tool, or after you select an object.  
 

  1. Select the object to modify, and then click the Match tool from the HUD. The F2 key also launches the Match tool.
  2. Click the object from which you want to duplicate properties.
  3. The selected object inherits the properties of the second object that you selected.
    FZ2D_2023.8.0801_Fig3.png
     

Clone (Double-click)

Double-click an object to clone its properties and draw or place the object if it’s a symbol or model.

Clone (Spacebar)

Select an object and then hit the Spacebar. This command clones the properties of the selected object and starts drawing the entity.

Why use the Spacebar instead of double-clicking?

  • Double-click text to open the text edit dialog. Click the Spacebar to start drawing text that matches the selected text.
  • In detailed drawings, it can be difficult to double-click an object. It’s easier to zoom in on the object, select it, and then hit the Spacebar to draw the object that matches the properties of the selection.

Bug Fixes

  • FZ3-11182    Zone2go Overview map boundary issue
  • FZ3-11179    Zone2go output folder validation
  • FZ3-11181    Fire_Forms_Fixes
  • FZ3-11175    Label Draw - Select Textbox after draw
  • FZ3-11159    Start page "Register" label has the g cut off.
  • FZ3-11154    Bubble Label - dblclk not picking up text.
  • FZ3-11127    Arc - UI - Tooltips on pbr material box
  • FZ3-10889    Symbols - Add option for single paint color
  • FZ3-11007    Symbols - Create - Doesn't automatically generate an icon

FZ3D_2023.6_Fig8.png

To use the Match Object command:

  1. Select an object in the drawing that you'd like to re-use.
  2. From the quickbar, or from the Draw/Edit ribbon, click Match Object FZ3D_2023.6_Fig9.png.
  3. Draw or edit the object.

    FZ3D_2023.6_Fig10.png

Note: To re-use objects in multiple drawings, use the Favorites tool.

 

Center Scene on Point Tool FZ3D_2023.6_Fig28.png

The Center Scene on Point tool allows you to quickly re-origin your diagram to the center (0,0) of the drawing grid. For example, you could have an area of the drawing with locked layers, and if you move an object in one of the layers, the objects in the other layers are not moved along with the object that you selected.
FZ3D_2023.6_Fig29.png

To re-origin your drawing:

  1. From the Draw/Edit ribbon, click FZ3D_2023.6_Fig28.png Center Scene on Point.
  2. Find the point that you want to designate as the center of the drawing.
    FZ3D_2023.6_Fig31.png
  3. Click the point. The drawing (including the hidden layers) re-orients at that point.
    FZ3D_2023.6_Fig32.png 
  4. When you display all of the layers from the Layer Manager, you will see that everything in the drawing is repositioned.

The satellite image clean-up tool just got a whole lot easier and more fun! This tool uses A.I. functionality to automatically detect and select vehicles in the satellite image. The clean-up tools have also been updated and simplified. Watch this movie and try it for yourself.

NOTE – if you encounter any issues running this feature, please re-start the program and try again.
