Export 3D Components to HTML

Glovius can now export 3D components to HTML files and view the 3D component using just the browser. The exported file contains 3D Geometry along-with metadata such as Attributes and BoM table ( in case of assemblies). The 3D HTML file also contains Glovius Web Viewer and you will be able to Section, Toggle Views, Rotate, Pan, Zoom and Save a Snapshot. All modern browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari and Mozilla Firefox are supported.

The main advantages of exporting to 3D HTML are :

  1. View 3D CAD files directly in the browser. No additional software needed.
  2. 3D HTML file is lighter in size and can be shared easily.
  3. Create unified packages with 3D geometry, attributes and the web viewer.

Assistive Measure in Glovius

Measuring the CAD geometry and features is one of the most important tool to quickly analyze the component. We have improved the Measure tool in Glovius to enable our users to quickly measure the various distances in the CAD components. We call this feature Assistive Measure and it is an extension of our Assistive Measure for Points feature. This enhancement will enable to quickly check the dimensions between various entities in your component faster.

To use this feature, open a model, click on Measure tool and select a geometric entity – linear edge, circular edge or a surface. The value is immediately displayed as a markup. Now as you move towards another entity ( say an edge ) we automatically calculate the appropriate measure value and display it for your reference. You can either choose to place the measure markup or move to another edge. Glovius quickly recomputes and displays the new measure value.

Assistive Measure for Points

Points are the basic geometric entities in any 3D model and are used as a basis for measurement. To help you measure quickly and identify all points during measurement, Glovius will assist you by highlighting the nearby points for Measurement. As you move the cursor in the scene, you will be able to select the nearby points to the cursor and measure their ordinates or the distances from other points.

To use this feature, open a model, click on the Measure tool and select ‘Points’ only option from the from the Filter list. Now, Move your cursor towards geometry to show all the nearby points. You can select any of the points for use in measurement.

Hatching Effect in Sectioning

We are pleased to announce a new enhancement to Glovius Section functionality. This enhancement improves the visual display of components during Sectioning by quickly segregating and identifying various components of the model. In case of an assembly, multiple hatching patterns are applied to distinguish the components for visual legibility.

Hatching Pattern in CAD Components

Hatching effect is turned on by default and you can turn it off by toggling the Hatching button in Glovius. Give this enhancement a spin and give us your feedback by reaching out to us at support@glovius.com

Here’s a short video explaining the feature :
