Note: The Sites menu was introduced with 3D-MC v15 for X-53x automatic systems.
The Sites menu in 3D-MC is a modification of the Project menu in previous versions of 3D-MC.
The Sites menu combines locally saved project files with Sitelink3D-connected sites.
The Sites menu is laid out very similarly to previous versions of the Project menu.
However, Sitelink3D-connected project files will now have an icon next to them showing Sitelink3D connectivity.
The workflow for copying in existing *.TP3 files is the same as previous versions.
Adding new sites
When hitting the Add... button, a new screen will appear, giving the user the ability to perform two functions:
- Add New Local Site
- Add Existing Sitelink3D Site
Adding a New Local Site is similar to how the New... button worked in previous releases of 3D-MC.
Users can select to load control data from the previously selected project or create a blank project.
Adding an Existing Sitelink3D Site lets the user add a Sitelink3D-connected site by two ways:
- Entering a Site ID and Access PIN
- Driving onto a discoverable site
Guides for joining remote and discoverable sites are available on MyTopcon.
