As a start, you can view an example 3DVIA Live Marketing App HERE.
Talking with many 3DVIA users over the past year, one topic has repeatedly come up. People love the 3DVIA Mobile Apps for the iPhone and iPad, but want to know how they can create a customized version.
- A 3DVIA user account
- Some 3D models
- 10 minutes of your time
Step 1: Set up your App
Before getting started, you will need some 3D content to be used in your App. If you don’t have any models in your 3DVIA account, you can download and upload the models to your account. [ Room ] [ Lamp ] [ chair ]
You will first set up the way your App will look. Using either the main menu command You->Create an App or on your 3DVIA Dashboard, click the command Create a mobile App.
Step 2: Enter your App information
The information here will determine the overall look of your App.
Title = mobile App name
Description = information describing the app which will show up in the Table of Contents
Cover Image = the image used as the splash screen or cover of the App
Privacy & Permissions
Note: The Community Group is free to create but anyone with a 3DVIA Account may add content to the group. If you wish to create a mobile app that only you add content, you can create a Public Gallery. If you want to create a private app to be viewed only by an invited group of users, you would create a Private Project.
Step 3: Add content from your model inventory or upload some models
You should already have some 3D models in your 3DVIA account which will show up in the left column of the content table. Just pick on the models you want to be used in your App. After clicking on the model, the model should be moved to the right column. To remove the model from your App, click on it again in right column.
Step 4: Publish and share your App
Add up to 5 email addresses that you wish to distribute your new mobile App to and click Share
Now go to your iPad and iPhone and view the email. Clicking on the Launch link will run the app.
Congratulations! You just created your first 3DVIA Mobile App.
