Publish your 3D models online
show user profile  sketchfab
Hi there,

We recently launched, a free service to publish 3D models online without plugin, using WebGL and HTML5.

We support more than 20 native 3D formats, as well as normal maps, specular, lights, diffuse, transparency... We have exporters you can install on your 3D software to publish directly from there to the web in 1 click. Here is a link to our 3Ds Max exporter:

You can embed our viewer on any webpage, and customize options like autospin, autostart, controls directly in the embed code. Here is an example below.

Give it a try, create a free account on today, and tell us what you think!

Who owns the model once it's uploaded? Your legal information and deletion/retention details are very thin.

AS should be making something like this.

@Weetabix: the author owns the model, we take no right on it. Legally, we are just considered as an hosting service for 3D models. We'll soon publish extended terms of use.

Thanks for the reply. I quite like the viewer. Quick and easy.

One problem. Once I've disabled it, I can no longer get it to rotate once I've clicked on it again. (Chrome, Win7-64)

We shouldn't because others provide this kind of service/product.
No point us all duplicating each others work or we will all have identical products.
The market is large enough for plenty of alternative approaches.

Our stuff allows you to upload 3d content to your own site - this seems like a central repository.

All depends what you want.

Fair point, AS, you are quite right.

I guess I was dreaming of a viewer like this, but one that didn't rely on somebody else's repository and had good Max exporting tools. That's what I'd like.

@weetabix You can of course use Sketchfab to display your 3D models on your own website, you just need to copy and paste the embed code, as in this post. As for rotation, you can setup this in the embed code.

Yes, all that is obvious. What I meant was that once I've disabled it with the disable button, I then click on the round button in the middle of the screen, and it seems like it's come back to life, but the rotation no longer works.

Anyway, good luck with your enterprise.

Noob question, just tried it on two different computers and got the same message, "While your browser seems to support WebGL, it is disabled or unavailable. If possible, please ensure that you are running the latest drivers for your video card."

I'm using Firefox. Win 7 64 one one computer, XP on the other. Is it a simple setting that I have not checked? I'm pretty sure I have the latest drivers.

Assuming your FF build supports it, and gyour gfx/drivers do as well:

Type about:config into the address bar, search for "webgl", and double-click "webgl.enabled_for_all_sites" to set it to true

Brilliant. It works. Thanks Weetabix.

Crits: it's quite annoying trying to rotate the object properly as the view sticks at around 90 degree rotations on the vertical axis. Oh, and Weetabix is right, if you click disable and then try it again nothing happens.

No worries. 3D in the browser is pretty cool.

I get the same problem as Weetabix.
Once I've disabled the viewer and re-enabled it, the rotation no longer works.
Win7-64bit, Firefox 15.0

It works. Now how do I post the model here for example? Like you did with that skateboard?
