Trimble Quadri 3.0.FP4

Released: xxx 2019

  • To run Trimble Quadri 3 you need Novapoint version 21 or newer.
  • NP20 users that use Quadri 2 models, must have installed NP20.xx.FP6c or newer client version to use with Quadri 2 models when server is upgraded to Quadri 3
  • This version is an upgrade of Trimble Quadri 3. If you have both Quadri 2 and Quadri 3 installed in parallel on your server, installing this version will not alter your version 2 installation.

Novapoint Quadri Client

Join a Project With this version one can now quickly take part in a project by specifying a URL to the desired project rather than scrolling through the hierarchy of servers, models and projects. If you do not know the URL of the project, you can use the Trimble Quadri Project explorer as in previous versions and browse the project hierarchy.

In this version, the strategy for creating and opening a Binder in the context of Join a Project has changed. If the client application does not have a Binder open when Join a Project is started, one must be created or opened before proceeding. In previous versions, a Binder was created or opened as an integrated part of Join a Project. With this change, it is both easier to understand and handle error situations. The latter also applies to the application code which in turn will result in a more robust application and improved user experience.

Open workset

Similar to Join a Project, the strategy for creating and opening a Binder in the context of Open Workset has changed. If the client application does not have a Binder open when Open Workset is started, one must be created or opened before proceeding. In previous versions, a Binder was created or opened as an integrated part of Open Workset. With this change, it is both easier to understand and handle error situations. The latter also applies to the application code which in turn will result in a more robust application and improved user experience.

Quadri Server-side

This version contains some under the hood improvements in the form of reorganised table structures in the database that facilitate upcoming stability and performance improvements.

The reorganization of tables in the database is carried out continuously as changes are shared by end users. That is, the very first Share which include changes of instances of a given feature type will find that the actual Share are performed substantially slower than normal.

Subsequent Share will store data using the new table structure and will not be negatively affected.

As a result of the database table conversion, the disk space used will temporarily increase somewhat until the automatically maintenance routine is completed the upcoming weekend.

The time-scheduled daily data backup has been changed so that models in Parking lot are excluded from the daily backup. From now on Backup for models in Parking lot is handled by backing up these models immediately after being moved to Parking lot.

To ensure that models previously placed in Parking lot are included in the revised backup routines, these models should be taken out from Parking lot and then immediately put in Parking lot so that they are covered by the revised backup routine.

Quadri Model Manager

The necessary steps to create a project are now included in the wizard to create a model. UI for creating a project is still available in the Novapoint client but that UI will be discontinued in the next coming main version.

Information

Projects and Model information is now shown on one Tab for Projects and one for Model.

Project Where

When using multiple project to create and maintain a feature and network model the extent of co-ordinating projects are presented in light grey.

Project Users

The UI is now focusing on Adding and Removing users from a project without mentioning the concept model user. The system handle that part behind the scene.

Remove and Purge

The button Purge is discontinued. From now on all Projects that have no timeline activity (never been used by any users) are deleted permanently from the database. Project with timeline activity will, just as before, be marked as removed and never permanently deleted from the database.

URL

This URL can be distributed to new members of the project team so that they can easily join the project from Trimble Quadri client Novapoint.

The URL is a concatenated string based on the following parts [Hostname or IP address] + [model name] + [project name]. By giving projects short concise names, URL will be easier to use. Use the description field instead of creating long project names that attempt to fully describe the project

QMM → Server → Models

Model parameters

This page is moved from Models → Modify→ Model parameters and only system administrator will be able to access this page.

Delete

This page replaces the button Delete on the page Models → Modify → Model information. This new page also allows to delete multiple models.

QMM → Server → Settings

Host Name / IP Address

This new field is used to specify the address that this server is exposed as externally. The URL presented in the Model and Project page use this value as the [Hostname or IP address] part of the URL.
