If you have a computer and a web camera, you can navigate your designs without a multi-touch wall, Wii remote, or even a mouse. Using Autodesk Design Review and the Boomless Chameleon Navigation Add-in, you simply attach your camera to your laptop, point it at a target, and when you move your laptop, Autodesk Design Reviews navigates your model accordingly. Move your laptop closer to the target to zoom in. Move further away to zoom out. Turn left or right to orbit.
NOTE: The add-in requires Autodesk Design Review SP1. Be sure you have downloaded an installed SP1 before you install the Boomless Chameleon add-in. You can get SP1 at:
You too can give this a try. Download the add-in and let us know what you think: [email protected].
Experimenting with ways to interact with computer models is alive in the lab.
