    We’re currently developing an application that lets our customers visualize housing projects in context with their environment. This means combining 3D models of houses (from BIM models), a database of existing LOD1 structures in the area, and the wider terrain surrounding the building.

    Our main focus is a desktop application built in Unreal Engine, and we’re looking for ways to leverage the datasets we put together and display them on the web as well. Verge3D looks very interesting, and creating a walk-through of a house model looks seems pretty straightforward (we see examples of this in the gallery as well).

    However, our value proposition is to display the house model and also generate the actual location where it sits. The terrain mesh can be fairly low poly, and there are several ways we might load it in the app. Here are some assumptions:

    – We can generate the terrain in a separate operation, which is then loaded into Verge3D as a textured asset (OBJ, FBX, gITF).

    – We can make an object in the Verge3D scene that awaits input from a displacement map. We generate the map and it’s loaded by the application.

    Does this make sense, or are there perhaps better ways to go about this?

    Also, we need to allow the user to move and rotate the building into place in the terrain. Would that be possible to achieve in Verge3D?

    Thank you for your time!

    Kind regards, Tore



    both approaches are possible with Verge3D. As of moving/rotating, see the example called Industrial robot where the user can move the robot and rotate its parts. It uses this puzzle

    I have seen that you can move assets in verge 3d published scene. However I would like to add value to this function by a little suggestion.

    Can pivot ne made visible in published scene where moving and rotation is enabled? That will add a value to current function I belive.

    What you say?


    you can easily visualize the pivot by adding an object at this point and parenting it to the main object.
