Create a 360° Web Viewer

You can create a 360° web viewer for your boards directly from Shape3d X:

 -  From the menu Files -> Shape3d Warehouse -> Upload the board... in all the modes.

 
 


- Or from the "Upload 360° viewer" button in the toolbar of the 3D view.

 
 


The prefered board position to start the 360° viewer is vertical, but if you have a web viewers license you can start in any position.

To start creating the viewer you'll need to be connected to the Internet and login to the account you created on our website using your email and password:

 
 


If you login succesfully the 360° Viewer's parameters window will pop up.

Some parameters are only editable if you applied to a web viewers license.

If you don't have a license you can still upload your boards in the Shape3d Warehouse and create a 360° web viewer though. It will be limited to 10 boards then, and you won't be allowed to use the 360° viewers in your own website. The viewers will also be limited to 45 frames and fixed to the dimensions 225x450px.

If you have a web viewers license you can set the number of frames of the viewers from 2 to 180. The higher the number of frames the smoother will be the rotation, but the longer it will take to load.

 You can also set the frames dimensions as big as your screen can be. The Resize button allows resizing the screen to a precize height or width so that the frames have exactly the dimensions you need for your website.

Checking the Display in the Warehouse box will make your board appear in the Shape3d Warehouse web page.
You can then add Comments and choose the Category (Surfboard, Windsurf...) and Type (Shortboard, longboard...).

Checking the Allow download box will add a Download link on the page of your board in the Shape3d Warehouse, so the s3dx file will be free to download.

 Press OK to start capturing the screen shots of the rotating board.

 
 


Once the 360° rotation is finished Shape3d will ask you the confirm that you want to upload the viewer on the Shape3d server. Press OK to proceed.

 
 


Uploading the viewer can take more than a minute...

 
 


Once it's finished, if you have a web viewers license, you'll get the piece of code that you should use in your website: it's an iframe that is very easy to include in a webpage and works with every web browser.

 
 


If you checked the Display in the Warehouse box, the board page will open in your default web browser:

 
 


And you'll also get the corresponding flash code image that you can print for your customers:

 
 


You can access the list of your web viewers on the page My Boards of www.shape3d.com. This page allows you checking the parameters, and deleting the ones you don't want anymore.
Note that you can create a new web viewer for a board that already has one directly from Shape3d. You don't need to delete the existing viewer first.

 
 


The link at the bottom of the My Boards' page shows all your boards in the Shape3d Warehouse.
