Sharing 3D Models

There are plenty of different ways to share your vCAD models: vCAD Inbox, Links (Facebook, Twitter, email), Embedding, and Enterprise public sharing.

vCAD Inbox :

vCAD Inbox allows you to share your models with other vCAD members.

  1. In the projects tab on app.vcad.com, hover over the model you wish to share.

  4. Enter the email(s) of the people you wish to share with. You can enter multiple emails by separating them with a comma (,). Any emails you enter that do not currently have a vCAD account will be given an account. This person can still signup under this email, and when they log in the CAD model will already be shared with them.
  5. Next, enter an additional comments you wish to make in the comments box.
  6. Once everything is correct, click the send button. You will receive confirmation that the emails were sent inside of your share window.

 

Links:

Links will only work with models that you vCAD share, or models that are in the gallery. Once you submit a model to the gallery, adhering to the vCAD gallery submission guidelines, you will be allowed to share public links.

  1. Hover over the model you wish to share and click the share icon.
  2. Navigate to the "Link" tab.
  3. Once the model is in the gallery, the public link will appear on the left. You can post this link anywhere and anyone can view your model. We have given you access to shortcut buttons for Facebook, Twitter, and your default email application.

 

Embedding:

Embedding only work with models that are in the gallery. Once you submit a model to the gallery, adhering to the vCAD gallery submission guidelines, you will be allowed to embed your model in your website.

  1. Hover over the model you wish to share and click the share icon.
  2. Navigate to the "Embed" tab.
  3. Here is the iframe HTML code that you will need to post this model on your website. We suggest that you place this code inside of a <div> containment element that already fits to your desired size. If you want, you can customize the iframe behavior yourself.

 

Enterprise Customers:

Enterprise customers get special privileges. If you sign up for an Enterprise subscription, then you will be allowed to make a model "public" without submitting it to the gallery. This way you can share your model however you like, without posting to the gallery.
