What is CL3VER?
CL3VER it's a cloud based platform to create interactive 3D presentations for web and mobile.
Who is it for?
CL3VER is a useful tool for Architects and the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) industry
to easily create Architectural interactive 3D presentations that enable clients and project stakeholders to see their building from different angles, inside or outside, see and compare alternative designs. CL3VER helps improve the communication client-architect from the early stages of the project getting feedback faster and get projects approved in shorter time.
CL3VER is an innovative and useful tool also for several other industries that can benefit from interactive 3D visualization. You can find more information about the use of CL3VER in our Industry page
What is it for?
With CL3VER you can create interactive 3D Virtual Tours, interactive 3D Architectural Presentations, 3D Architectural configurators for residential buildings, office buildings, campus and any other type of construction.
How does CL3VER work?
CL3VER does not require any software installation nor any application. CL3VER works in the browser and the application runs in the cloud so there is no need for updates or maintenance.
CL3VER is an innovative technology developed in HTML5, based on WebGL
library and also working in Flash (to support old versions of browsers).
The CL3VER editor works on Google Chrome
To use CL3VER:
- Create an account here;
- Once in your account you select a template and the editor is opened;
- Upload a 3D model in one of our supported formats by using one of our plugins or by or importing via drag & drop;
- Create and edit the scene and once you're done you click the button "Publish" and the 3D Presentation will be directly available on a simple URL.
How do I publish CL3VER Presentation to a website?
The easiest way is to embed the content into your website via iFrame. You can find more information on the "Publishing tutorial
How can I have CL3VER scenes working on vBulletin?
The guys from
vBulletin prepared a dedicated post in their Forum with instructions about how to
Embed CL3VER 3D scenes in vBulletin.
I have problems using CL3VER from my office. What can I do?
If you try to access your CL3VER account from an Internet connection protected by Firewall
, make sure the Port 8080 is enabled
, otherwise you won't be able to use the CL3VER. Anytime you're trying to access your CL3VER account from a private company Internet connection and you have problem, contact with the System Admin and make sure the Port 8080 is enabled on your firewall
My CL3VER presentation does not work with Safari’s private browsing. What can I do?
When you're using the private browsing
navigation mode, Safari
restricts local storage permission so that the 3D scene does not load or gives errors. To be able to view the interactive scene switch off the private browsing.How to turn Private navigation on or off in Safari iOS8
How can I enable WebGL on Safari for Mac?
- Open the Safari menu and select Preferences
- Click the Advanced tab in the Preferences window
- Then, at the bottom of the window, check the Show Develop menu in menu bar checkbox
- Then, open the Develop menu in the menu bar and select Enable WebGL
How can I enable WebGL on Google Chrome for Mac?
You have to type "chrome://flags/" in your Chrome browser’s URL bar (Flags and Plugins - Chrome OS Wiki - Google Sites
) and then enable WebGL from the list of options available and click on "Relaunch Now". The CL3VER page will reload and the interactive 3D scene will be available. That's it!
How can I enable WebGL on Firefox for Mac?
- Type “about:config” in your Firefox browser’s URL bar
- Do a search for “webgl” in the Filter field
- Double-click the “enabled_for_all_sites” preference to change it to “true”
How can I import my 3D models and projects into CL3VER?
You can import your 3D models into CL3VER via:
- CL3VER native plugins available for the following modeling software: Autodesk Revit, Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Maya, Rhino 5, Sketchup and SolidWorks. Please visit our plugin page.
- Drag & Drop: by drag and drop 3D files directly in the CL3VER viewport. Please read the "Importing via drag and drop" tutorial.
Which 3D file formats are supported in CL3VER?
CL3VER currently supports .fbx
through direct “drag and drop” import into CL3VER. Just drag a zip file or all the elements into the CL3VER editor, and you're done! If you are an Autodesk Revit 3ds Max or Maya, Rhino 5, SketchUp or SolidWorks user, use our plugins
What is the recommended 3D file size and characteristics?
Although technically CL3VER can support huge scenes, it is recommended to optimize the scenes so they can be played on most machines. 2GB of memory should be a reasonable limit for most PC's, so it is recommended to stay below that limit. The number of materials and geometries also affects the performance, so it is recommended that they do not exceed 1.000. 3D models in CL3VER are highly compressed and depending on the source 3D file format this compression can be in a range of x2 to x10.
So, the limits on the file size depends on the type of 3d format.
- 150MB of file size (depends on 3d format)
- 1,000,000 polygons
- 500 geometries/instances
- 1GB of file size (depends on 3d format)
- 5,000,000 polygons
- 10,000 geometries/instances
CL3VER designer offers optimization tools so the scenes can be optimized both in memory and in file size.
Could UV's maps exported from 3ds max be used in CL3VER?
The UV´s created in 3ds Max are supported in the CL3VER engine, and in fact are required for the use of the baked textures in channel 2 for Lightmaps/Ambient Occlusion.
Can I save my 3ds max shaders and textures and use them in CL3VER?
Yes, all map channels are supported with some exceptions. The one supported are the following:
- Ambient map
- Diffuse map
- Emisive map
- Specular and Reflection maps
- Normal maps
- Bump map
- Alpha maps
- Opacity map and Ambient Occlusion map (in channel 2 for the UV´s).
Can I use v-ray scenes created in 3ds max with CL3VER?
Yes, but you will have to import the baked texture created in V-Ray into the map channels of the standard 3ds Max materials, as CL3VER does not support the the V-Ray shaders. Read the "Lightmap Baking with 3ds Max and VRay
When I make a complex shaders in v-ray in 3ds max does the CL3VER convert it correctly?
At the current moment the shaders created in V-Ray, have to be converted to 3ds Max standard shaders.
This is due to CL3VER supporting currently only 3ds Max standard features in the shaders on exporting.
For example: Ambient map, Diffuse map, Emisive map, Specular and Reflection maps, Normal maps, Bump map, Alpha maps, Opacity map and Ambient Occlusion map.
Read the "Lightmap Baking with 3ds Max and VRay
Are environment maps such as hdri's supported in CL3VER?
They can be used in the Environment panel, as Background maps, Reflection maps(Global) or as Global image based lighting, where features such as Intensity, Exponent and bias can be changed.
Can I run CL3VER on linux?
Of Course! As long as your hardware and browser requirements are met!
What are the supported texture file format in CL3VER?
Supported texture formats in CL3VER are the following:
Before importing textures in CL3VER make sure they're in the above file format, if not convert them before importing.
What are the recommended texture dimensions to be used in CL3VER?
The recommended texture dimensions should not exceed 2048 pixels, the texture will be loaded into the scene but unless the reduced dimensions you will not be able to save or publish the scene.
Recommended dimensions should be:
