At Xuver we want to make our viewer available to as many different users as possible. This means we also want to be able to visualize as many 3D models as possible. Read everything about it in the article.
An online viewer for 3D models
But what exactly is our online viewer? At Xuver we are specialized in 3D visualization. We noticed that there was a great need for a simple, online solution in order to view a 3D model via the browser. And that is exactly what we worked on behind the screens. Our online viewer is now ready to be used and that makes us quite proud We can convert your 3D file within moments, after which you can literally walk through the browser. Indeed: all your 3D models are converted into a truly three-dimensional world.
The advantages of our online viewer
Our online viewer is actually the first of its kind. It used to be nearly impossible to show 3D models effectively in your own browser, and keep their resolution with added interactive functions. Exactly that is what Xuver managed to do. With our online viewer, everyone can work right off the bat. You can view your 3D models inside your own browser. Indeed, without the need to download heavy or expensive software! This handy tool allows you to literally walk through a digitalized version of the building, which creates a huge level of interactivity and opens a treasure chest of possibilities.
Handy and interactive features
In order to visualize your 3D models as accurate as possible, we added quite a few interactive features in the online viewer. Firstly, this viewer is a multi-user viewer. This means that you can walk through the model with others. You can -quite literally- lead them through the model, while discussing all the details through the built-in speaking module. While you do this, you are also able to point out objects and details that require some extra attention. Furthermore, you can light out objects easily. Remove layers in the model, only to re-add them later in the explanation. This makes everything clear very quickly and enables every party involved to understand exactly what the plan is.
3D models clarified for everyone
And that is exactly one of the key points of this viewer. With this tool, everyone is able to view the model from their own location and find all the ins en outs of the model quickly. In this manner, the parties that have less extensive technical knowledge also get an accurate view of the project. All relevant details can be clarified in an unprecedentedly easy manner. This gives everyone a good view of the project and its progress. For you as a professional, this viewer offers another massive advantage. Namely: in order to update your client it is no longer necessary to leave your office. Simply put: everyone just logs in from their own location and in their own browser. You don’t even need to leave your office to effectively update your client. Thus, this online viewer will save you both time and money!
Rapidly convert your 3D models
Another major benefit of this 3D viewer is the possibility to rapidly convert your 3D models. Among others, we have fitting solutions for Revit, Sketchup, ArchiCad and IFC. With our converters and plugins, we are able to rapidly turn these 3D models into a Xuver (.xr) file. After this step, this file can be uploaded into our Backend System, which turns it into a beautiful 3D visualization. You 3D models will come to life and after mere moments you can already walk through your 3D model in the online viewer. Would you like to learn more about the conversion process? Please read our FAQ.
