New in Moicon: Decals, New Kiosk Mode, Improved Markup Placement and more!
Stay informed and up-to-date with the latest improvements to Moicon App. Our recent updates bring significant changes that will enhance your project experience.
Our latest update is all about enhancing your experience with Decals and improving features like Paths, Markups, and Process Analysis. Our goal is to make it easier for you to create accurate digital twins that truly represent successful factories. With these improvements, you can expect more precise results and streamlined workflows. Explore the latest version of our app and take advantage of these new features to optimize your projects and achieve even greater success!
Decals allow you to enhance your 3D models with unique and custom designs using 2D textures. This feature provides a simple and intuitive way to bring your equipment and layouts to life with custom graphics and logos.
They are commonly used in manufacturing to add unique information and custom designs. Decals can be created by uploading 2D textures, such as images or logos in *.png and *.jpg format, which are then applied to the surface of the 3D model or assets. Use values to resize with Scale or change Rotation.
Symbols on the wall
One use case for decals in manufacturing as signs or labels in a factory setting. For example, decals can be used to label machinery, tools, or storage containers with important information such as safety warnings, operating instructions, or part numbers.
By using decals as manufacturing signs, factory operators can quickly identify the equipment or materials they need, improving efficiency and reducing the risk of errors or accidents. Create custom signage for factories, such as floor markers, directional signs, or warning signs. These decals can be easily applied to a variety of surfaces, including floors, walls, and equipment, and can be removed or replaced as needed.

Also Decals can be used in the production in promotional products. For example, a company may create custom decals featuring their logo or slogan to give away at trade shows or other events. These decals can be applied to a variety of surfaces, such as water bottles or laptops, and can help to promote the company's brand inside digital twin project.
Example of using to promote products
Overall, decals can be used in manufacturing as signs and labels to improve efficiency and safety in a factory setting and as versatile tool for enhancing 3D models in manufacturing. They allow companies to add unique and custom designs to their products, helping stronger brand identity. By using decals to label equipment and materials, as well as creating custom signage, manufacturers can create a safer and more organized workplace that promotes productivity and quality.
New type of Kiosk
The kiosk is a useful tool for creating an overview of a building using camera raids. By accessing the kiosk, users can control the height and speed of the camera, stop and resume the raid, and get a clear view of different parts of the building.
With the help of the kiosk, users can capture high-quality images and videos of the building's interior and exterior, including areas such as roofs and upper floors.
To maintain camera's focus point use fixed target mode.
To maintain a first-person camera use Path walk mode.
Improved Markup Placement
The update includes an improved placement behavior that allows specific markups to be placed directly from the user interface (UI), making the process faster and more efficient. Additionally, the create markup function has been modified to bring up the last selected markup type, reducing the need for the user to manually select the type each time.
In Markups, connector and color options are selected by default
Furthermore, when a markup is placed on the viewport, the connector and color options are selected by default, further streamlining the process and saving time. This update may improve the overall user experience and productivity, especially for tasks that involve frequent markup placement.
Table of Processors in Reports
The table for process analysis report that shows manufacturing indicators such as Output rate, Items received, Items delivered and Machine status in % is a valuable tool for manufacturing facilities to analyze and improve their production processes. These indicators provide insights into the efficiency, productivity, and effectiveness of the manufacturing processes and help the facility managers make data-driven decisions to optimize their operations.
Table with processor values
Output Rate: This indicator measures the number of units produced per hour. A higher output rate indicates that the production process is efficient and effective, and the facility can meet the production targets and customer demands.
Items Received: This indicator measures the number of units received by the manufacturing facility. This metric is critical in tracking the supply chain's performance and ensuring that the facility receives the required raw materials or finished goods to produce the final product.
Machine Status: This indicators measure the machine's statuses: Producing, Blocked, Setup, Idle and Down. It's critical for ensuring the smooth operation of the manufacturing process.
