One of Vcad’s new features stems from the need of users to have more control over model placement and settings in Autodesk Forge®.

The save state button allows you to save the camera position, rotation and zoom of the model as well as the Forge viewer settings; the button is available in the bottom section of the custom visual, when the report is in Edit mode.

Once you have positioned the model in the desired location and changed the Forge settings, just save the status by clicking the save button.

To make the changes persistent remember to save the Power BI report; the next time the report is opened it will maintain the saved settings. To have an immediate feedback of the changes made instead just switch between a tab and another in Power BI®.

Watch the video below to see an example of use.
