Lightning in the Cloud

The world of engineering graphics today is stunning and vibrant, and can be tremendously complex when creating applications for the web. Every year new web technologies result in better performance and increased complexity.

HOOPS Communicator solves these challenges with a simple yet powerful software development kit (SDK) for advanced web-based engineering applications with a robust, purpose-built high performance graphics kernel focused on engineering graphics.

  • High fidelity access to 3D and 2D engineering data
  • Deep interrogation and collaboration
  • Fully customizable with powerful yet easy-to-use API
  • High rendering performance
  • Easily scales to massive models
  • Full support for complex data aggregation
  • Intelligent, on demand streaming for instant viewing
  • Server-side rendering

In addition, high-level APIs allow users to connect 3D data to vital business intelligence and customize branding, user interface and look and feel.

Whether customers are creating a web-based service or deploying a custom solution for use inside the corporate firewall, if their team can write HTML code, they will be able to add 3D content quickly.

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 rich API designed around customization.
