Smithsonian X 3D for the web. Inspiration for V6


Take a look at this, this is a way to present 3D scans on the web.

I really like the way the lights (default scene lights) can be moved around on the sphere in the GUI. This would be great for a default lighting system for V6.

Also look at the “ambient occlusion”.


I really, really like the UI that’s used there.

The effects are great, and it is really easy!

The layout and icons look familiar - p3d:

Nice to see our service linked here as well. I’ve been working on since its beginning.

And FYI, I’m working on an uploader/exporter so one can upload directly to from inside Rhino :slight_smile:



Is it using the same technology?

I’d check the page source, but the page is currently unavailable. But it could be the same underlying technology WebGL.


+1 to that!

The page is back up, and it indeed is built on top of WebGL.
