Demo the 3D web viewer


HOOPS Communicator provides intelligent and highly optimized streaming of CAD data to the browser. Streaming allows users to quickly interact with massive models, made up of hundreds of thousands of parts – a crucial time-saver when working with large and complex data sets.

A set of intuitive server tools allow you to author and edit custom 3D data, dynamically combine 3D objects from multiple sources, and load and unload data on demand. The scalable server architecture simplifies session management and allows for a large number of viewing sessions, distributed over many servers.

3D Web Viewer
Create solutions that unlock the value of 3D assets in web browsers. The feature-rich web viewer runs as a zero-client application in modern browsers on desktop and mobile. Additionally, server-side rendering is seamlessly integrated into the viewer and allows for viewing of complex CAD models even on low-end devices.

Create intuitive workflows by linking each object in the 3D model with critical information such as part number, vendor, price and inventory availability. Modify the look-and-feel and functionality with an easy to use API designed around customization.
