The interactive 3D model allows users to get a ‘trade show experience’ through any internet browser

A robotics manufacturer has substituted its PDF brochures for 3D presentations direct from CAD data to boost its sales, according to CL3VER, the company that provides the platform for the interactive presentation.

To create the animation, the original CAD designs of Yaskawa Motoman’s robots in SolidWorks were exported natively into Autodesk 3ds Max and converted into polygons.

In 3ds Max big geometry parts were instanced and exported into CL3VER using a 3ds Max plug-in, reducing the final scene to a more manageable 40Mb, and allowing easy manoeuvrability online.
