How can I display the thingviewer?

Before all you have to load into the media of your WordPress the STL file of the 3D model you want to display.
After that you can use the shortcode to display the thingviewer into your pages or posts.

The plugin provide a shortcode generator button into Classic Editor and Gutenberg.

This is the shortcode manual use:

[wp-3dtvl model_file=""][/wp-3dtvl]

The parameters are the following

  • model_file: specify the model file URL to display.

The plugin display a thingviewer that load the selected STL file and let you interact with this.
The thingviewer is always resized at the width of the parent element.
The height will be calculated to display the thingviewer in a 16:9 ratio.

You can display a preview image instead of the Thingviewer at page load.

This is the shortcode with the preview image:

[wp-3dtvl model_file="" model_preview=""][/wp-3dtvl]

If your 3d model is displayed in a incorrect rotation, you can rotate the model on loading, by specifying the rotation values on X, Y, and Z axis in the shortcode.
This is the usage:

[wp-3dtvl model_file="" rotation_x=20 rotation_y=30][/wp-3dtvl]

In this example the model will be rotated by 20 degrees on the X axis, by 30 degrees on the Y axis and by 0 degrees on the Z axis.

What can I do in the thingviewer?

You can display a preview image when the Thingviewer is loaded.
You can switch from the prewie image to the Thingviewer by clicking the “toggle” button.
You can move and rotate the camera with mouse or with keyboard.
You can display an help window which display the available commands list.
You can display the bounding box of the model.
You can display an information window with some informations abount the loaded model (size, volume, surface area,…)

Why the model I loaded is completely black?

Probably because there are some problems with your model: holes, flipped normals.

Can I insert multiple thingviewers in the same page?

Yes, it is possible to embed multiple thingviewers in the same page.

Can I change the colors of the model, grid and fog?

The plugin does not have a configuration page that allow you to do this, howerver you can customize the colors by modify the thingviewer javascripts.
This feature is available in the full version.

Can I decide what button display into the thingviewer?

No. The button bar cannot be customized.
This feature is available in the full version.

In the demo the config page appears in the WP Admin Menu, but when I installed it nothing showed up. I tried deactivating and reactivating and uninstalling and reinstalling… no config page ever shows up so this is completely useless, but it looks great on their demo page and I wish i could get it to work.

Light weight clean looking viewer should be developed further so users can customize more settings. Support of .3MF files.

Gave it a try. When you install, there are no configuration screens or anything. After a bit of reading, discovered that the use is based on embedding a shortcode like this: [wp-3dtvl model_file=”your_file_name”][/wp-3dtvl] Tried that with multiple models, and all I got was an on-screen error saying “An error occurred loading model”. Dug around some more and found the author’s demo model from the Envato based paid version of this plugin. Tried substituting the path for that model. Same result. In summary: Gave this an honest try. Could not get it to work at all.
