Progress on new 3D website builder
Work on the new 3D website tools is slowly but gradually making progress. Until recently, most of the work has been focusing on the database backend and overall structure. And important as this may be, there have not been a lot of cool things to show.
But over the past few weeks development has started on the UI for uploading your own images and 3D models. The system has a neutral UI that will interfere as little as possible with the 3D website you are making. A side drawer will function as a central information center from which you can upload, change, and edit things in your 3D website.
Of course you will be able to use an extensive library of built-in 3D models, but you can also upload your own. Once uploaded, the model can be centered, scaled and rotated. The coming week I will be working on letting the user apply colors, textures and different shaders to the model.
Scaling an uploaded model
A Wavefront .OBJ model was uploaded and is scaled to the right proportions.
