Enterprise-level streaming of 3D models
BIMCADweb.com offers you interactive streaming of 3D models. Here is a rough idea of our workflow: first, we process the model and host it on a cloud server. Next, it is transmitted as a video stream to your website or intranet portal using a real-time visualization system. Finally, users can freely manipulate the 3D model on the webpage as the cloud visualization system instantly reacts to all user commands.
Viewing large and complex 3D models in a standard web browserThanks to the powerful GPU servers in cloud Data Centers even large and complex models can be rendered within a split second. After that, the renders are encoded into a video and streamed to a computer or smartphone. User's commands (such as rotate, zoom, etc.) are transmitted to the Data Center and instantly executed by the server. It gives your clients a feeling of using a powerful supercomputer.
Large 3D models on smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops
Interactive streaming of 3D models by BIMCADweb.com is a video that comes from a Data Center. So, it doesn’t matter which device is used to watch it. Your clients don’t need expensive workstations to view large BIM or CAD models. A mobile phone in their pocket is enough.
Major BIM/CAD formats: Revit, SolidWorks, CATIA, AutoCAD, Creo, NX, AVEVA, etc.
Before uploading to the cloud, we process 3D models to ensure the necessary visualization quality and performance. We work with all major BIM/CAD/3D file formats. No worries: if the source model is in a different specialized format, please contact us. Our team can always find a way to help you.
Users can interact with the 3D model and its elements
The main advantage of BIMCADweb.com streaming is that our users can not only rotate, move or zoom but have some additional functions available. For example, study changes performed over time or X-ray view. Users can select a particular element of the model and examine it, or compare several design options.
BIMCADweb.com employs cloud rendering system, which incorporates high-performance cloud GPU servers. That's why we are able to apply high-quality settings to get the best possible result. The processing (such as adding shadows, textures, colors, materials and lights) allows us to provide photorealistic image quality to the models. Our technology makes it possible to get the life-likeness and accuracy of the entire model even if the professional BIM/CAD software you initially used isn’t designed for it.
Your data is absolutely safe. The processed model files are encrypted and stored in сloud computing platforms, such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure. All the data is sent over the Internet using the secure HTTPS protocol. Furthermore, 3D models are delivered to your website or intranet portal as a video stream. Thus, you don't have to worry that they can somehow be downloaded from the webpage.
When you embed our special viewer to your website or intranet portal, only 3D model manipulation commands are sent to the cloud. The viewer cannot access any information available on your webpage.
High-speed 3D model uploadThe important thing about BIMCADweb streaming technology is that it transmits the video stream. So, when you press the play button, it is the video of the 3D model that appears on your screen. Thus, the delays are minimal. Basically, it is like watching a video on YouTube.
Intuitive user interfaceIt is really simple to manipulate the model no matter what device you use. The interface of 3D viewer caters even casual and inexperienced users. It is intuitive and concise, so you don’t need to provide any further explanations to the end customers.
Preserving the structure of an object
When processing BIM/CAD models for streaming, we can preserve the full structure of the model, if necessary. This allows users to select separate elements or blocks and interact with them.
