My client keeps falling through the floor.
We use a lot of open mesh flooring within steelwork structures and have ways of modelling this that work well for both Navisworks and our 2D drawings created from the model. The problem is that Prospect doesn't recognise the resulting graphics as a surface that can be teleported onto, so if users miss the support steel under the flooring when teleporting they end up back at ground level, which can be rather frustrating.
Our first thought was to place a surface over the flooring and give it 90% transparency, however Prospect then recognises the surface as glass and allows teleport to work though it, so we are back where we started.
Can a switch be built in to the software to allow teleport through glass to be switched off?
I've installed Prospect 2.5.0 today and see we now have a switch in the settings to turn off teleport through glass :) (was this new for 2.5.0 or had I missed it earlier?)
Using the 90% transparent surface over open mesh flooring now does the trick for us and we can confidently go anywhere in the model.
Not being able to teleport through glass doesn't cause us any issues as there are very few glass walls on a water treatment works.
