The intuitive interface improves 360° image taking and virtual tour creation with HoloBuilder, enabling you to create your virtual 360° tour anywhere while on the go.
All you need is
- an iOS or Android mobile device (tablet or smartphone),
- a supported 360° camera like the Theta V or another compatible camera, and
- the JobWalk App.
You can find a current list of cameras compatible with HoloBuilder’s JobWalk App here.
1 Getting started
Download the official JobWalk app by HoloBuilder directly from Google Play for Android or the App Store for your iOS device:
Log In or Sign Up to HoloBuilder
For your tour to be viewed and shared online, it needs to be uploaded to HoloBuilder. Only when logged into your account, you can synchronise your projects with the cloud.
You can log in to your JobWalk app account with the same credentials of your HoloBuilder account. Open the JobWalk app and select "Login here" in the upper right corner. Enter you HoloBuilder login credential or choose the lower third-party login, e.g. Autodesk or Procore.
If you do not yet have a HoloBuilder account, switch to sign up or continue as a Guest. Create a new account with your email address. Alternatively, you can also create a HoloBuilder account with one of the available third-party account logins.
After logging in, you will see the "Projects" screen separated into two lists:
- ‘ON THIS DEVICE’: The projects you currently have downloaded to the device with the JobWalk app ready for editing.
- ‘IN THE CLOUD’: The projects that are ready for download from your HoloBuilder account.
The magnifying glass in the top right allows you to quickly search through your projects.
Adjust the app settings
The app can be configured according to your needs to improve performance or better adjust to your work environment.
2 Working with the JobWalk App
Create or edit a project with JobWalk
Once you are logged in and adjusted the settings to your needs you can start working with the JobWalk App.
Using the same account, the projects in the JobWalk App are the same you can see in the Web Editor.
Upload sheets in the JobWalk App
If you create a new project from scratch in the JobWalk App you will need to upload one or multiple sheets to your project.
Capture 360° photos and create tours with the JobWalk App
Once you uploaded at least one sheet you can start capturing.
In order to capture photos you need a 360° camera connected to the mobile device with the JobWalk App. Please find out which cameras are supported and how to connect them to your device in our dedicated tutorial.
Once connected, please refer to our tutorial on how to capture 360° photos and create tours with the JobWalk App.
Add Time Travel scenes
Time Travel enables you to take multiple images of a certain location at different times.
If you are already familiar with Time Travel you can learn how to use the feature in our JobWalk App to add Time Travels on site in the tutorial.
If you have never worked with it before and would like to get a better understanding of this functionality and the advantages, you can first read the general Time Travel tutorial for the Web Editor.
Mark issues on-site
Once you have captured an 360 image for a location, you can augment this image with 360 markups and 2D images.
2 Project Collaboration in the JobWalk app
All editing options as described above for a job walk can also be used in a team.
Work simultaneously on a project to better distribute the workload and become even more efficient. Any progress will be uploaded and merged automatically.
3 View your tour
To view and share your tour, tap on the three buttons shown in the upper right corner of the project overview screen and select ‘Open in browser’.
Consequently the project is displayed in your browser and can be viewed as well as shared as usual.
