Verge3D Puzzles is a visual logic environment which allows for quick creation of interactive scenarios in a drag-and-drop fashion. It features blocks for:
Verge3D is based on open-source library Three.js and exposes its API via v3d or THREE namespace. Therefore, it is possible to reuse any existing Three.js code with Verge3D.
You can distribute your content using:
|UI and HTML Layout||
Interface layouts, created using external WYSIWYG editors, can be linked with Puzzles to trigger changes to a 3D scene being rendered in the browser and vice versa.
We recommend using Webflow website builder for fully code-less pipeline.
