How to implement 3D models

3D models can be implemented in various ways. This article will cover all the possible options.

💡Showell offers multiple possibilities for showcasing 3D models. This article will guide you through the options and their benefits:

3D files

Stand-alone 3D files can be adjusted by the user and showcased anywhere.

3D file example

💡Tip: Even though Showell automatically converts your 3D files to the GLB file type, It is recommended to convert your 3D file in advance for optimal results.

Exporting 3D models to GLB can be done with numerous software applications, such as Blender, Autodesk or SolidWorks.



HTML5 files

Aside from 3D content, HTML5 files can offer a wide variety of other options as well, such as calculators, forms and configurators.

  • Simply upload the HTML5 file(s) to Showell Admin as you would with any other file.
  • Creating a HTML5 file can be more complex then a stand-alone 3D file. However you can customize it as much as you please. As seen in the video above: you are able to create dynamic content, edit individual colors, clickable fields, add additional information and more!
  • HTML5 files are currently only visible within the Showell native apps.
  • Showell supports both multi-file (archived) HTML5 apps and single-file apps.
➕ Showell also offers Smart and Interactive Tools (HTML5) development service. If you'd like to know more:

Augmented Reality files are fantastic to show your 3D content in a real world environment.
