What makes a screen "pop"?

I would like to know what makes a screen "poppable", namely, a GNS530 screen. It does pop on the C172 Steam, but not on the Pilatus.

But in general, what is needed to have the pop enabled?

Thanks

I'm no modeller, but a collision material was missing in one of the projects I work on. After the modeller added it, the pop-out feature worked.

I just checked with the modeller. It's the mesh of the display screen that needs to have the collision flag set. Sorry for the unprecise first answer ;-)

Yes just reached this conclusion after some tests on my side.


Many thanks for your help Hans, very much appreciated.

indeed, setting the material to "Colision" fixed it, thanks :)

Following, I have the same problem.. pressing Alt + Left mouse click on default airplanes is making the G1000, GS3X and others coming as a re-sizeable 2D panel..

Failing to do this on my own product despite of using the same gauges.. wondering what can we do to enable this functionality?

Best,
Raul

I wouldnt be surprised if it was some kind of added collision panel + some other obscure things

One more question on this regard now, I am noticing any garmin units that get poped out via this technique has no mouse cursor.. however when they are in the 3D bezel they do have the hand cursor.

Anything we need to do in order to have a cursor on HTML / JS gauges when they have been poped out via ALT+Left click?

Best,
Raul
