Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.3

Is this Beta using DirectX or OpenGL for J3D?
Well, guess what; it works on my notebook (that's a huge improvement!!).
However:
-The navigation arrows look scrambled (maybe due to the bl##dy poor OGL support for my card)
-No Top view for furniture on the plan (idem)
(I guess when I use DirectX it looks fine anyway)

Please try version 2.3 with this link to a JNLP file for DirectX.


Nice the searchable list, but it could be better to include a switch between folders and list in the furniture catalog context menu (like switch from Aereal View to Virtual Visit in the 3D view)

Nice idea smile
But then, the user would be able to change a preference value from a contextual menu, something not common. It would also imply to add these menu items to main menu bar too, since any contextual menu must exist also in the main menu (just a basic ergonomic rule).
At this moment, I would prefer to add a keyboard shortcut to access directly to preferences. What are the common shortcuts for Preferences under Windows and Linux?


I just updated the Beta version to fix a few bugs and add the ability to import textures libraries with the new menu item Furniture > Import textures library.
You'll find an example of a textures library in the wood.sh3t file joined to this message.

A SH3T file is a ZIP file. It contains texture image files and a PluginTexturesCatalog.properties file that describes each texture image.
For example, the wood.sh3t file contains wood.jpg and wood2.jpg image files and a PluginTexturesCatalog.properties that describes the name, category and size of these textures:

name#1=Wood
category#1=Special
image#1=/wood.jpg
width#1=60.0
height#1=60.0

name#2=Wood special
category#2=Special
image#2=/wood2.jpg
width#2=40
height#2=40

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.3

The version 2.3 Beta 15 released today provided the ability to create dimensions with a double click on the border of a piece of furniture, the side of a wall or a room.

It's probably the last new feature (at least one that modifies the user interface) of the version 2.3, that will be released once the new dialogs and menu items will be translated.
Don't hesitate to stress Sweet Home 3D and report problems.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.3

Emmanuel:

After a quirky start with Windows Vista (maybe you have seen my deleted post) everything in v2.3b15 seems to work fine on both my computers.

I'm busy updating the English manual and hope to provide a "serious" first draugth (a beta version) pretty soon.

One suggestion for the menu structure: move Plan -> Export to SVG format to 3D view -> Export to SVG format. It seems more logical to have them together. Or else, maybe, you could create a new menu item called Tools or Extra (as in Windows) where you put all the extra tools together.

Hans

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.3

I found a bug (I think).
v2.3b15
When I tried the create photo, the quick one and the one after that worked but the Best and the next to best did not. It (the rendering area) was just black.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.3

The.camera was probably in a wall, and with the two best quality renderers, this will make a black image.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.3

I just tried to seperate the 3D view on Linux.
The 3D view disappeared form the Main View but there was no separate Windows.

(I'm right now using Ubuntu 9.10 with KDE)
