Re: VR Mechanical

I have also watched the videos in the Mechanical VR series and do not understand what they did differently so that when they launch the Desktop Viewer, their model shows up with its rendered properties. How is that done or maybe I should say what am I doing wrong because I do not see my model with i...

Re: Requirments for SimLab Composer 9

Although SimLab already provides interactivity, I would like to see the ability to add clickable spots and more elaborate popups (like the message box) like in Sketchfab and 3DVista. Both of these products allow you to add the links that follow objects as you rotate, pan and etc. 3DVista also provid...

Create & Save custom materials

Although Composer has a lot of really neat materials, I need to be able to customize some of them and save in a library for future use. As an example, I use the Shiny Black Plastic for several different objects. However, I would like to have a version where the Alpha is set to 1. How do I create it ...

Re: Requirments for SimLab Composer 9

Thanks for this update. Although I am struggling with some features, I think Composer is a great tool. I would like to be able to produce the same quality of output with WebGL, 3D PDF, and VR as I do with the render tool. I have produced some really nice quality renders (IMHO) but cannot come very c...

Re: SimLab Composer 8.2.2

With the 8.2.2 update, I am noticing that as soon as I apply a material to an object, the material icon disappears in the material dialog box. Is anyone else seeing that? BTW: A very dumb question. If I apply a material but then modify it for a given object and then save the model it asks if I want ...

Re: VR - What am I doing wrong.

OK - I figured out the problem. I was set at Mechanical instead of Architectural. Now I need to learn the difference. ;)

VR - What am I doing wrong.

Suddenly when I launch the desktop viewer, my model does not show the starting position I have marked and the only way I can move through the model is with the mouse. No keys work.

What am I doing wrong?

Re: SimLab Composer 8.2.2

It appears that this version generates my WebGL page much quicker. Hate to be negative but I am not the biggest fan of the progress bar in this particular situation. Will continue with other testing though.............. :D Let me be a little more specific. The problem I have is that the text is whi...

Re: WebGL - Lighting

OK - I figured out how each of the controls work. L am just not having very good luck figuring how to place & which ones to use in my models for a WebGL page. If only I could use rendering on a WebGL page. I would be really happy.
