Embed! Embed! Embed! Embed (and measure) your models, in 3D, anywhere on the web.
Simply embed your models on any website or any blog and everybody can interact with your project in its full 3D glory. This is the coolest way to get people looking at and admiring your hard work.
Play with these sunglasses modeled and uploaded by GrabCAD engineer Brandon Woestman right here! Note that you must be using a webGL enabled browser to use this awesome new feature.
After you’re done playing with these neat sunglasses, make sure your models have great STL formats uploaded and embed your own models all over the web.
How? It’s simple.
When your model is open in the 3D viewer (upload a small STL format to GrabCAD for fast and easy loading), click on the “Embed” button and an embed code will pop up.
Copy and paste that into anywhere that reads HTML, and you’re good to go. Feel free to edit the height and width to make the viewer look awesome on your page. Then post it. All internet users (who have WebGL enabled) will be able to interact with your model in 3D.
We’ve also introduced ‘measure’ functionality right into the 3D viewer, so you can get a feel for the relative length between two points on any surfaces of your model. There aren’t units in the measure tool yet (because the STL file format doesn’t carry that information), but we’re already brainstorming ways to introduce units and more complex measuring functionality into our next 3D viewer.
More to come. We’re dedicated to making your 3D life easier and more fun. Sprinkling your CAD models in 3D all around the web is a step in the right direction.
Who built this?
Well, it was a team effort. But Priit wrote the code that allows you to embed your models everywhere. Thank him by sending him a private message if you like the embed feature (or if you have any feedback!)
