Release 0.3.1 / 23-09-2021

What we improved

Project load time

The load time for new projects as well as exiting projects is improved. We’ve optimised scene loading for projects containing large topography, furniture and other heavy objects.

Tooltips

Snaptrude has an extensive library of materials and parametric components. We’ve added tooltips to all library objects to make it easier to navigate and find what you’re looking for.

We’ve also added a tooltip to the project name. This is particularly useful for projects with longer names.

Instructor

We’ve built in an instructor for all tools. Hovering for 2 seconds on any tool triggers an instructor on the bottom left corner that shows you how a tool works. It also contains some tips to help speed up your workflow.

Profile information

It is now possible to update the user name and phone number (including country code) from your profile page.
