WS4 3DHOP – Presenting online high-res 3D models: a crash course

Marco Callieri, Matteo Dellepiane, Marco Potenziani

3DHOP (3D Heritage Online Presenter) is an open-source tool for the creation of multimedia interactive Web presentations of digital cultural artifacts. 3DHOP target audience range from the museum curators with some IT experience to the experienced Web designers who wants to embed 3D contents in their creations. Based on WebGL, works on almost all platforms, without plugin or a dedicated server, directly inside HTML pages and is capable of streaming multiresolution 3D meshes over HTTP, supporting the exploration of huge 3D models on commodity computers and standard internet connections.

The workshop will present the tool, its components and capabilities, and various examples of 3D web visualization created with it. Then, in a hands-on tutorial, the participants will be guided through the setup of a 3D web visualization, going from a simple example to a more complex multiple-object active-spots animated 3D-HTML page.

The participants will receive documentation material, how-to and web templates, and all the 3D/2D data used in the hands-on tutorial (to start experimenting with the tool).
