Konstru's wireframe view is more than just a visualization of centerlines. It gives you some insight into how Konstru works at the same time. Konstru models are very lightweight because of two things:
- On upload we only store a delta of changes and not the entire model again. This way we capture every state in time but also remain very lightweight. We see a model as the sum of its changes.
- Konstru doesn't store meshes. However our 3d viewer shows extruded elements. We are rendering the meshed model for you on the fly but we are storing only centerlines and profile geometries. This makes our models very lightweight, easy to handle and interoperable, because meshes would not provide enough information to rebuild elements from scratch. And still you are able to get a meshed preview in our 3d viewer.
To see what we are actually storing in out database simply activate wireframe view in our view menu:
Using this toggle button you can switch between extruded and wireframe view.
