Sharing a Model on a Website or via Social Media

3D Warehouse is all about sharing — and that ethos extends to websites and social media.

Tip: Before you embed a 3D model in a web page, read the 3D Warehouse Terms of Use.

To embed a 3D Warehouse model on a web page, follow these steps:

  1. On the model details page, click the Embed tab in the sidebar on the right.
  2. Select Thumbnail to get HTML code for embedding a thumbnail image of the model. Select 3D Viewer for HTML code that embeds a 3D viewer on a web page. For the 3D viewer to work on a web page, the visitor’s web browser needs to support WebGL.
  3. In the Embed This Model window that opens, as shown in the following figure, copy the code snippet, which you can then insert into your web page. You may want to save the code snippet to a TXT file that you can save to your hard drive, especially if you don’t plan to embed the code snippet right away.
  4. Click the Close button.

  2. Click the icon for the social media service on which you want to share your model.
  3. In the window that appears, enter your login name and password (if you’re not already logged in) and follow the on-screen prompts to share your model.
