Remember these beautiful hand-drawn elevations that your architect grandpa used to draw? The BIM process completely sucked out the life out of these drawings and gave us efficient, but boring elevations. But does it have to be this way ? Of course not.
Stop wasting your time drawing dashed lines to illustrate demolition! Instead, read these tips and become a Phases master.
When I try to use the automatic page label feature on some PDF’s it reads the selected page region multiple times. (i.e. Instead of “A2.1” it will read it as “A2.1 A2.1 A2.1 A2.1…”) It will do this for any text on the page.
The solution for me was to change a setting in the bluebeam printer advanced. merge lines checkbox.

How to – Add a background image in a stereo panorama rendering
A stereo panorama rendering created using A360 rendering can be downloaded as a zip file.
Once you download the zip files and unzip it, you will see the following contents in it:
image.png – The main high resolution image
image.jpg – A lower resolution image for preview
imageL.jpg and imageR.jpg – The left eye and right eye
imagespano.html – The html file
twgl-dist.js – Javscript file
- Open image.png in an image editing software such as Photoshop
- Since this is a png file, it has an alpha mask and you can composite your custom background.
- Once editing is done, save this as a separate file or you could overwrite the original. But the final file has to be named image.png
- Now you have to generate the left and right eye images and the preview image
- Crop the top-half of the image and Save As imageL.jpg
- Crop the bottom-half and Save As imageR.jpg
- For the preview image, Save imageL.jpg as image.jpg. Reduce the size of this image to 1/8 of the original size. For eg: 9216×1536 will become 768×128 pixels.
- All your images are now ready. If you want to preview how it looks on your computer, open Firefox browser (Chrome does not let you open local files) and drag pano.html to it. You should see a pixelated preview for a brief moment. After it clears up, you will see the new panorama with your composited background image. Example of the link: file:///C:/Users/xyz/Desktop/stereo_pano/pano.html. You should do this to check if your composite looks fine and if there are any edits required.
- In order to view it in the browser on your mobile device (this is what you really want), all the files in the zip file have to be hosted to your website. They cannot be uploaded back to Autodesk’s site, which happens when we generate a URL for your rendered stereo panoramas
