It can be freely downloaded from Altizure altizure.com/download, and installed on any of your desktop computers. It is a cross-platform, running either on Windows PCs or Mac PCs. It goes also with a sample data Cheng Yu Tung Building to start.
With Altizure Desktop, you can manage efficiently your professional data, offline and online, locally on your desktop machines and remotely on the altizure.com.
Currently, it is de facto an offline 3D viewer!
You can offline view and browse 3D models stored on your local computer. The local viewing is often much faster as there is no internet bandwidth restriction. This allows you to demonstrate your professional project to your clients in a more convincing manner and even without any internet connection.
The Local contains a list of projects stored in your local computer. You can use Add to Local to add any local projects into this list for viewing.
The Remote lists all your projects on the Altizure cloud under your Altizure account, which are also your My Projects at altizure.com. You can download any of downloadable projects by
clicking the Sync button. Regardless of being private or public, the Pro projects can be synchronized between your local machine and altizure.com.
Upon downloading projects, you are Synchroniz-ing your Pro projects in Remote between your local machine and the Altizure cloud. You can also redistribute the downloaded local projects to others, who can then add these projects to Local with the Add to Local function.
Last but not least, it is intended that this desktop offline viewer could be customized for our professional partners and users. You may send the request to firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in developing customized desktop applications with your own logo embedded.
