Hello, I am trying to figure out how to take a 3-d file from
solidworks and have it work similar to what you'd see on a website
where you can rotate the image and change the colour. The thing is
that I want to retain the full 360 degree rotation, so something
like Quicktime VR is not right. can Director do this? Or can
someone suggest a program to me? I am new to all of this.
Just save or export your Solidworks model to obj format, then
get the free obj to w3d converter (google it). Import in Director
the w3d file, apply some pre made 3D behaviors from the behavior
library (just drag and drop over the 3d sprite) an thats all, a
full interactive realtime 3d obect with full rotation on any axes.
It can be published on the web or as desktop application (win or
mac). You can open your obj file and export it to w3d (shockwave3d
file format) for Director from lightwave 3D or 3D max (there's
other packages with shockwave 3d file format (w3d) exporter)
