CAD Viewer embedded into a web page

CAD Viewer embedded into a web page


I am looking for a CAD viewer that I can embed into a web page.
By this way, visitors do not need to download and install any software, they can directly rotate, zoom, annotate and measure the models we share into the web page.

We have a CAD converter,so it doesn't matter if the CAD viewer is not able to read all CAD extensions.

I already tried HOOPS Communicator but it is too limited and really expensive for us.

Of course I would like something cheap
Does anyone know other software ?

Thanks for any leads.

RE: CAD Viewer embedded into a web page

Have a look at cortona 3D.
May be more than you look for (read: more expensive) though.

NX with Teamcenter 8 on win7 64

RE: CAD Viewer embedded into a web page

If you can convert your models to a 3d pdf format I would choose that.. everyone has (or should have) a pdf viewer..

RE: CAD Viewer embedded into a web page

Thanks for all your answers.

Yes the idea of 3DPDF is interesting.
I discovered that with Acrobat Pro it' is also possible to measure the model.

I will now have a look of the price of this software
