Your journey with JigSpace may have started on your iPhone or iPad, but did you know an even more powerful creation experience is available on desktop? With our Windows and Mac apps, you’ll have access to unique capabilities that make working with complex 3D models easier, plus creation tools to make your 3D presentations even more engaging.
Let’s explore the newest capabilities that will help you to supercharge your Jig creation experience on desktop.
1. Select specific parts with ease using the object list
We know that it can be hard selecting the right components in large 3D models, especially if they’re buried deep inside your model. The Object List makes this easy. You can simply identify the object in the list, rather than having to select it directly from the 3D model. Plus, you can select multiple objects by holding Shift while clicking objects in the list. You can also hide objects while editing to access parts hidden inside other objects.
2. Transform multiple objects with precision input
Complex 3D models often require precise control when creating Jigs. You can now specify exact properties when it comes to position, rotation, and scale, so you can make your Jigs exactly right. To save time, it’s also possible to copy and paste properties from one object to another.
3. Accelerate your workflow with keyboard shortcuts
Use keyboard shortcuts to perform common actions without having to open up a menu. For example, select multiple objects by holding Shift + clicking on one object at a time, undo using Cmd + Z, or toggle between a fixed and floating toolbar with Shift + P. Plus, use your arrow keys to nudge the position and rotation of objects in the x, y, z input box.
4. Make your 3D objects interactive with actions
Bring your product to life by making it interactive. Add an action to any part of your Jig to take your viewers to another step or to a URL. Guide your audience through a tour of your product, let users select from different product configurations, or take them to the ordering page on your website.
5. Measure usage and engagement with analytics
Whether you’re using Jig in the sales process, embedding it onto your website to market your product, or in your support materials, you can now measure how your audience is engaging with the content. Use analytics to understand how your Jigs are used. See if your prospect has viewed your Jig, how much time was spent, and how many actions were triggered.
So that’s 5 key features that you can only find on our desktop app. Download the JigSpace app for Mac or Windows today to supercharge your Jig creation process.
