Repeatable visualizations

I’m using Shapr3D to model products and create a series of images for use in presentations which show/hide folders of objects. Each time I create an image in the visualizer, I have to try and re-create the angle I used from previous images so they match. It’s really not possible if you’ve made any changes to the model. Ideally, I could save camera positions, like I can save lighting settings, and then show/hide folders and objects, taking snapshots along the way from a consistent perspective.

Because I can’t do this, to get the consistent angle, Each time I modify my model, I recreate more than a dozen images manually. It’s time consuming, and something I do a lot of, so it’s killing my productivity.

A more advanced feature request, is not just to set a camera angle, but also to save the folders that are shown/hidden for each image I want to create. In a perfect world, I could set the camera / visible folders / lighting to a “view”. Then hit one button and all my views are re-generated from my updated model and saved to a folder.

I should point out that if you can save a set of views, it would also be possible to create an animation by “tweening” the sequence of camera positions and folders being shown/hidden. While these may not be a top priority for everyone, I’m sure I’m not the only one who would like to create quick sets of visualizations and videos from my models.

Really enjoy Shapr3D, thanks!



Thanks for the detailed suggestions!

These are topics that we are also interested in, however they are further down the line, so I can’t give you a release date yet. Stay tuned though, as new Visualization features will keep on coming, and we should reach these too at some point. :slight_smile:

I hope there’s the awaited “exploded” view mode down the line, as well as video …
My, I’m overkill again, haha :crazy_face:

Yes! Conversely if there could be a better way to save objects positions and switch they’re orientations without having to move them back and forth each time.

Ie: A drawer shut in its compartment could be saved and switched to where it is opened.

If there is a way to do this already I haven’t found it yet.

It’s actually why I came to the forum.
