View your own Jigs
All users can now create a 3D presentation in one of our apps for desktop, iPad, or iPhone, and view it in Apple Vision Pro. Open a Jig link and click 'View on Apple Vision Pro' to launch it into the native JigSpace spatial app. This early access capability is now generally available to all customers.
As a creator, you can preview your Jigs for the first 3 steps, and for 3 minutes duration at a time.
Customers on paid Apple Vision plans get unrestricted viewing of their 3D presentations.
Pull apart objects
You. can now pick up and pull apart objects inside your own Jigs, with your hands, just like the F1 Racing car and Jet Engine examples in the app.
Picking up and pulling apart objects mimics our natural interactions with physical objects, enhancing your ability to learn through:
Interactive 'hands on' product demonstrations: Technical sales professionals can offer customers a hands-on examination of products within a simulated environment. This is particularly useful in made-to-order, complex, or hard to transport products like machines or infrastructure.
Hands-on learning: Educators and subject matter experts can facilitate interactive discussions, asking participants to examine parts closely or share them with others.
New presentations have this enabled by default, and older presentations need to have this enabled in the Jig settings.

JigSpace 3.29

The JigSpace editor for Windows, Mac, and iPad has been updated with the following improvements.
Stale update protection
We've improved version tracking and how we manage file update conflicts for creators editing the same Jig presentation across different devices or users.
When editing or attempting to update a stale version of your presentation now, you will be prompted to update to the latest version of presentation, or make a copy of your current older version, to protect the latest version of your presentation from being accidentally overwritten. This lays the groundwork for our upcoming release of multi-user editing.

Custom proxy configuration
Users with custom work networks or VPN settings blocking their use of JigSpace can enter custom proxy settings to ensure uninterrupted access to their JigSpace account.
Learn more about using custom proxy configuration.

Pull apart settings for your AVP Jigs
You can now preview your Jigs on Apple Vision Pro, and enable picking up and pulling apart objects with your hands in the settings menu.

Bugs fixed
  • Sometimes videos inside Jigs crashed on Windows app.
  • Action shader feedback showed on some objects when there was no clickable action.
  • Tracking on actions triggered no longer occurs whilst in the editor/workshop.
  • Some users in multiple teams had difficulty switching between teams.
  • Both green (sub-object) and blue (object) mode outlines could appear at the same time.
  • Advanced materials panel input text was sometimes unable to be edited midway through text
You can now share group spatial presentations with others using SharePlay. While on a FaceTime call in Apple Vision Pro, you can now use SharePlay to view a Jig presentation with multiple people simultaneously. Highlight objects, pull apart pieces, and draw annotations, all while talking and seeing each other.

As the presenting host, you control the flow of the presentation, ensuring that each transition is synchronized for all viewers. This update allows any viewer to interact more dynamically with the content by picking up objects, highlighting specific parts, and drawing annotations. These changes are instantly visible to everyone involved, fostering a truly interactive session.

We’re excited to announce the launch of JigSpace for Apple Vision Pro, taking full advantage of its incredible capabilities to supercharge the communication of complex ideas, products and processes, radically enhancing the impact and efficiency of training, sales and marketing.
With JigSpace for Apple Vision Pro, you can:
  • Explore an incredible, curated selection of 3D presentations.
  • Immerse Yourself in Detail: Lean in and discover intricacies of your products like never before, engaging with content that is meticulously crafted for clarity and immersive communication.
  • Stunning Realism: Experience presentations that feel real, thanks to the power of Apple Vision Pro, supporting 4K textures and high-fidelity CAD files for unparalleled realism.
- Manipulate Jigs with spatial hand gestures; pull apart components, annotate, and explore in a natural, hands-on manner that enhances understanding and interaction.
This version includes sample content to explore, with the ability to view your own 3D presentations coming soon.
You can now hide step controls from your viewers and add ‘Go to Step’ actions to create custom interactive flows to your Jigs.
See some of the great ways to use this in a replay of our interactive navigation webinar.
Hide step controls
Go to Jig Info in the editor and enable ‘Hide step controls’ to hide the default step-based navigation user interface from your viewers.
Learn more about step navigation settings.

Interactive button models
The free object library in JigSpace has a new button category to make adding interactive navigation to Actions easier via  ‘Go to step’ or ‘Go to URL’. Choose from over 50 unique icons and buttons to match your interactive navigation or links to websites. The color, scale, and materials of the buttons can be customized like any other 3D object.
image
We’ve made one of the biggest enhancements to content creation this year, with a new materials and textures panel in the Windows and macOS desktop app to enable more custom fine tuning of your 3D models to look even more realistic.
image
Set precise color and transparency
Apply exact product colors with HEX color input to ensure 3D models are consistent across their product family and match brand style guides. Use the % transparency input to hide a model from the viewer on a step, or to create semi transparent views to show internal parts of a product. 
image
Fully customize your materials
Fine tune your material’s roughness, metalness, emission, and more. Modify the Jigspace materials to meet your needs, or go deeper with your own custom textures. Upload diffuse, normal, and RMA maps, then set the roughness and metalness to reveal the right level of detail to look realistic in augmented reality or a 3D viewer. You can also add emission to models like backlit screens or LED lights to add brightness and a sense of internal light.
image
Create animated flow-effects
Our flow effect shapes are incredibly popular to bring CAD to life and similar air or liquid flow through products. Now you can add a flow effect shape to your 3D presentation, and edit the speed and direction of the flow-effects to meet your needs. You can also upload your own flow-effect textures to animate with our flow-shader based material, then customize its the speed and direction.> Learn more about customizing animated flow shader effects

Improvements
  • We’ve given the app a glow up with consistent fonts and icons
  • Desktop app can now run in the background so you can import large CAD files while multitasking.
  • Improvements to automatic optimization of large files.

JigSpace 3.24

We've improved how you can sort or organize your Jigs in the latest version of JigSpace.
View and sort your Jigs into categories (for example product lines, templates, or proposals).
You can also sort your Jigs by date created, recently updated, most viewed, or by name (A-Z).
Improvements to Apple app clips:
  • Viewing jigs in app clips now handle text boxes much better
  • URL links in instruction text boxes sometimes did not click correctly.
Bug fixes:
  • Sometimes the desktop app froze or crashed when importing a file and users clicked outside the window
  • A Jig would sometimes not open in offline mode on iPad and iPhone when it should have
  • Sometimes actions were not clickable when they should have been
  • Other technical bugs impacting performance.
You can now add interactive actions to objects:
  • go to step
  • go to URL.
These enable your viewers to click and explore your content in a non-linear order and link out to non-JigSpace content.
You can also link from 3D objects, parts, or 2D assets into online websites, parts catalogues, or lead forms. Watch this short demo below to see some of the capabilities.
Further details are available at our help center article on actions.
