We currently have an ideum pro table and would like to use it to display some of our photogrammetry models of shipwrecks and other underwater and land based cultural heritage sites. Are their existing applications that have been developed that we can drop our models into? We currently use the sketchfab website in fullscreen mode on the table, but since it runs on a browser it is not good for unmonitored use from the public. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. FYI, I have little to know programming experience on the touch table.
We do not have any generic 3D model viewers. It doesn't sound like you need a flash based viewer in this case so I suggest google searching standalone 3D viewers. Through a brief search, one of our support members came across this one for FBX models but we have not tested it ourselves. Good luck!
Hi John, and what about embedding your sketchfab models in your own webpage and running the browser in presentation mode? Or using the HTML exhibit (http://openexhibits.org/download/8344-2/) instead of a browser?
I will check it out.
Great idea jeanvouillon! I will definitely look into those options, I think they might work for this application! We are going to a conference with over 10,000 attendants and would like to have the multi-touch table with the 3D models of shipwrecks on it for people to explore, but I do not want them to be able to get out of the 3D model "mode".
If you have a sketchfab business account, you can hide the controls on the 3D model, to avoid people jumping to your sketchfab page. If not, the trick is (in the html code) to put the sketchfab iframe inside a block (div tag with hidden overflow) smaller than the iframe, in order to hide the top and bottom controls...
Here, an example: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/15335326/misc/wrecks.html
BTW, nice 3D scans!
