3D model converting problems partially fixed
November 8, 2017

In recent days, we were having problems with 3D model converter. These problems are partially fixed now, so converting non-corrupted 3D files shouldn’t cause any interruption anymore.   3D Wayfinder’s model file converter has stopped quite [...]

Faster loading of 3D projects
April 25, 2017

We have changed the logic of initializing POI data in 3D Wayfinder. This gives up to 80% faster project initialization for medium and large projects. In very large projects, the increase is even larger - more than 90%. After data is loaded from the [...]

Accordion path animation
March 20, 2017

New feature we have added for wayfinding applications is accordion style floors when using path animation. This means, that all floors will be visible on the screens when showing the path through multiple floors. In 3D Wayfinder you will see all flo [...]

Guidelines for creating optimized and better looking 3D floor plans
June 14, 2016

We have listed some guidelines for creating 3D models, that look nice and run smoothly in web-browsers.  3D Wayfinder uses regular 3D models, so there is no special format or way how the 3D floorplans should be modeled. As 3D Wayfinder works in [...]

Moving camera according to path
March 2, 2016

There is option now to move the camera with path animation. This makes the path visualization even more effective with 3D floor-plans and maps, especially when combining with directions. So far there were 2 ways to show the path: draw the path anima [...]

Exporting 3D models from 3ds MAX
February 5, 2016

3ds Max models cannot be used directly in 3D Wayfinder, as .max format is closed file format and our importer doesn't support it. But exporting 3D models from Max is not complicated. 3D Wayfinder supports following formats for 3D models: .fbx, .dae, [...]

Preview of inserting external 3D models to floor plans
June 17, 2015

Currently we are developing features to insert external 3D objects to floor plans. With this it would be possible to add these "little details" (like escalators, benches, trees or even cars) that make the floor-plans look realistic. The best thing is [...]

Lights, shadows and deferred renderer
June 1, 2015

Thanks to implemented deferred renderer it is possible to create and manage lights on 3D Wayfinder Administration panel. This means also real-time shadows, point-lights and multiple directional lights. Deferred rendering is an alternative approach t [...]

Faster loading with JSON 3D model format
May 25, 2015

Now the JSON 3D model formats are also implemented in 3D Wayfinder. This gives us better browser-side loading time as browsers’ native JSON parser is faster, than parsing binary models in Javascript. The average gain in loading time is 55%, which m [...]

3D vs 2D wayfinding
May 18, 2015

What is the difference between 3D and 2D wayfinding and what are the benefits of 3D floor plans? We have tested 3D, semi-3D and 2D floor-plans with our small focus-group and below is the short summary. To see the 3D floor-plans in action, please si [...]

Support for JSON 3D model format in FRAK WebGL engine
May 12, 2015

We have released a new version of FRAK WebGL engine with support of our native JSON format for 3D models. This decreases the browser-side loading time as browsers' native JSON parser is faster, than parsing binary models in Javascript, as we used to [...]
