When uploading your first 3D model in the Augment Manager, you will need to select some default settings :

  1. Default Privacy
  2. Default Import Unit
  3. Default Category

The settings will be saved and appear by default for your next uploads.

You can change the default settings any time my going to My account > User preferences. The new settings will be applied to your next uploads.

You can also change them manually upon each upload.

Default Privacy

Select “private” or “public” :

  • When selecting “private” your 3D model can only be seen by you or people you decide to share your 3D model with.
  • When selecting “public” your 3D model will appear in our public gallery, under the category you assign it to.

Default Import Unit

The units are preselected according to your country.

For example, if you are using Augment in the United States the default unit will be “inch”, or if you use Augment in Europe, the default unit will be “meter”.

If we can’t detect any unit on your 3D model, we will apply your default import unit.

For example STL file don’t have units but Augment needs one in order to display your model in real size. 

You can, of course, select any unit that suits your project from the drop down menu.
