This is a small walkthrough of a script I’m working on which allows you to view different states of your 3ds Max scene online with clara.io. How cool is that?
And here’s the actual configurator running on Clara.io. Press some of the icons to see the different options.
To begin with, you need a scene in 3dsMax with different states. I’ve made a small script to manage those and linked it into this process. After that, each state generates a bit of html for the webpage we’re aiming for. This webpage consists of a bunch of code taken from the clara.io website and this generated code. Also, for each state a thumbnail is made, just for the looks. Finally everything has to be put online: the html, thumbnails and the actual objects. the objects can be uploaded with the clara.io uploader I made a while ago.
