RPR Viewer Task Tabs

RPR Viewer’s features are grouped into common “tasks”. These are controlled by the tabs at the top of the application.

In the Viewer, you will find the following buttons at the top for each workflow:

  • Review: Review existing parts and assemblies
  • Edit: Manually translate, rotate, or scale objects, add comments
  • Lighting: Add and edit lights for your scene
  • Materials: Apply materials from our Material Library (which comes built into the Viewer)
  • Render: Create your final renders
