How to fully render 3D files (File format like STP) using UI5/HTML5 on web browser?

We want to build 3D viewer for additive manufacturing engineering files.There are more than 50 different file formats are available.

Checked with SAP UI 3D viewer, It does not support all the file formats, any alternative available?Or any other suggestion?

We have tried to build a simple viewer with support of three.js.

We want to develop full scale viewer which can provide all the measurement details of an image and user can visualize it in 3D on screen.

Hi Pratik,

The SAPUI5 3D Viewer control supports only the SAP 3D Visual Enterprise VDS file format. VDS is essentially a neutral file format that supports most of the key features of the numerous other formats that can be converted to VDS using the SAP 3D Visual Enterprise Suite. Currently, the tooling and extensibility of our UI5 Viewer is limited as it is based on our own core and focuses on reading VDS. However, we do have a research project underway to evaluate other rendering platforms that might enhance your ability to build functionality on top of our 3D visualisations (e.g. measurements). ThreeJS is one of the technologies we are investigating. Please feel free to e-mail me with your requirements for HTML5/WebGL based 3D Visualisation so that they can be considered during my regular roadmap revision and prioritisation process. Kind Regards Mike
