Not yet, we’re currently re-writing the Speckle 3D Viewer and as soon as it’s ready we’ll switch to using that one in PowerBI too. This will allow for 2 way selection logic, but I don’t have an ETA on that yet.
It is… and it isn’t. Let me explain:
Anything that is “displayed” in a PowerBI custom visual needs to come from data that was fetched via queries, and linked to the visual through available DataRoles in order to enable interactivity between the visual and the rest of the report.
The visual itself cannot “generate new data”, at least not in a way that the rest of the report would be able to pick it up.
We could display the comments on the viewer quite easily, but that won’t have much interactivity in and of itself.
Is there any other solutions you know of that do something similar? It would help us understand and scope this feature better.
This, although doable, I’m not sure how it would play into the PowerBI report ecosystem. Are you hoping for the viewer to:
automatically figure out the sectionplane?
remember the section plane you just created?
have a specific input so you could bind the sectionPlane to some data imported into the report?
As with the previous one, if you know of particular examples of visuals that have implemented something similar, we’d love to hear about them
Hi guys, I just wanted to share a dashboard design that I created from Speckle PowerBI Visual. So far it seems very good. But it takes too much time to load elements. Overall it is working and thanks a million for this visual. Great work.
Thanks so much for sharing @salpbes , we often struggle to see how Speckle is used in the wild
We’ll definitely take your feedback into consideration when working on more stable versions of the connector
Thank you, guys. I am more than happy to help. Eagerly waiting for the new versions. I think with Power BI integrations there are endless possibilities for Speckle. Great work so far. If you need anything please let me know.
Just bumping this thread to let you know we’ve released a new version of the PowerBI visual that comes with some nice improvements and fixes:
Most of these have been added based on your feedback, so thank you very much for taking the time to test and come back to us
We hope you find these new features useful. Keep in mind that we’re still experimenting on how the visual and the data connector should interact and work, so do keep those requests and ideas coming to help us shape an awesome user experience
