Dimension allows you to easily create high quality 3D scenes which you can use in many ways, including rendering photorealistic images or sending to the web. This article covers how to use the Publish 3D Scene (Beta) feature to easily create a web-friendly, shareable and embeddable 3D scene.
Create a link
Use the Create Public Link button. Dimension automatically begins converting your file to web-friendly GLB format, uploads the file to your Creative Cloud Assets, and then generates a public link.
After the link is generated, you can copy it directly in-app. The link isn’t shared with anyone automatically, so you can review privately before sharing.
The name chosen for the scene is used in the generation of the link. Uploading a new published scene with the same name will replace the asset with conflicting name. This is planned to change in the future where a unique ID per upload gets created so you can reuse the same name.
During the beta phase, this feature only generates public links and has no additional privacy management. This is actively being worked upon and will be updated in a future release.
To manage your published scenes, use the in-app link in the share menu Manage Published 3D Scenes, or visit Creative Cloud Files on the web and go to the Published tab to find your published scenes. Deleting a scene from this interface will remove it. Any visits using a link which references a deleted scene will direct the user to an error.
Sending your link to people enables them to use the Creative Cloud Files platform to comment on your designs. Currently, viewers must log in with a valid Adobe ID to comment. Guest commenting for those without an Adobe ID is planned for the future.
You can embed your 3D scenes into other sites using the generated iFrame code. To retrieve the code, visit your published 3D scene link and do the following:
- Make sure you are signed in while viewing your 3D scene. The sign-in options can be found in the Comment panel.
- In the upper-right corner click the Share icon.
- Use the Get embed code button to copy the embed code.
- Paste the embed code into any other website that supports iFrames.
Embedding the 3D scene into another site has a few requirements:
- The site must allow access to the hosted domain: https://dimension.adobe.com.
- The site must support iFrames.
