What is it?

We place the 3D models and preliminary prototypes on the Internet, in a password-protected and confidential directory assigned to each client. The hosting site offers:

  • a potent 3D visualiser of the models, with rotation, scrolling, zoom, cut and measuring analysis.
  • Log for comments, similar to Whatsapp.
  • 3D visualiser screen-shots, where graphic annotations, or text, logged in the chat stream can be written.

What is its purpose??

The customer can:

  • Supervise the modelling process accessing the 3D visualiser through any remote device, such as PC, tablet or smartphone.
  • Download the 3D file for 3D printing and have their own physical model for revision.
  • Save the files in the cloud, since they are usually large, to ease the file transfer between provider and customer.

 

Examples

Online check-up demo directory for 3D Artisans. You can access the directory, logging on as a guest. As a visitor, you will be able to display, but not to download (the customers' confidential directories allow downloads). The demo directory contains two files:

  1. 3D model in STL format. You can display this file in 3D and use all the features of the visualiser program.
  2. Render in JPG format. It is a 2D image, thus it can not be rotated. Render offers a mock-up showing the final appearance of the piece.

As shown in the previous example, the 3D file does not provide the final appearance of the jewel. The 3D model is shown as a solid object of homogeneous appearance. However, render files provide the final appearance of the jewel, but it can not be explored in 3D.
