Revaly Update: Video Chat, Curves, More Import Types

Introduction: Team Updates

Just two weeks later, we are back with a second update. We are thrilled about the progress we continue to make on the product from a feature and stability/speed perspective. This week we added several new features and refined many others. Take a look below to learn more.

Live Video Calling

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Reduce what you have to say, by showing with new live video calling, directly within any Space.

Curve Measurement

Easily see how long an edge is, without having to pull out the measuring tool. Learn how to turn on curve measurement in our article on experimental settings.

More Import Types

No more conversion is needed for Revaly to accept .SLDPRT, just upload the native file and start collaborating! Check out all the filetypes we accept.

Orthographic Camera

CAD Engineers will be very familiar with the concept of an orthographic camera. It allows any given snapshot of the part to communicate the relative dimensions of unannotated edges unambiguously. If you don’t know what that means — that’s okay; have a look below to see the difference:

File Processing Indicator

You can now see when a file is processing- so you know when you can jump in and begin collaborating, rather than waiting for it to load.
