Allow to switch between full model and overview for building scene layers from online

I would like to switch between 'Overview' and 'Full Model' for my hosted building scene layers. This can easily be done in ArcGIS pro with the radio buttons:


And by code in javascript;

buildingLayer.sublayers.forEach((layer) => {  
switch (layer.modelName) {

case "FullModel":

layer.visible = true;


case "Overview":

layer.visible = false;



But this can't be done from a scene viewer in ArcGIS online. For complex scenes with many BIM models, changing this in ArcGIS Pro or Javascript can be tedious and time consuming.

I would like to propose this as a new feature for ArcGIS Online.

Using the building explorer widget in Scene Viewer switches from Overview shell of the BSL to the detailed view. This can only be used on one Building at a time currently bc of the detail view of the BSL having multiple active could cause some browser stability issues.
