Can this plugin what for cars? e.g if i have car images, can it display the 3D of the car pix or i have to upload multiple images of same car?
Do get back to me ASAP : firstname.lastname@example.org
You can use CAD software to make 3d car model and save the model as .stl file.
This wordpress plugin can then display your car inside a browser like other objects shown in the video preview.
Do I have to use this shortcode in a blog post only?
For example, can I use this shortcode in my portfolio so that when an image is clicked on and goes to the lightbox instead of a still image or video the viewer sees the STL 3D image instead?
Does the image have controls so that the viewer can rotate the image themselves as well instead of an autoplay animation?
Yes, you can view it inside a lightbox too. I have tested this using the Lightbox Gallery plugin.
First create an empty blog post containing only the stl 3D viewer shortcode . Then create another post containing the “a href rel…” element to embed the above post URL in a lightbox.
The downside of the above approach is that the lightbox loads the entire blog post page, which may look clunky depending on the theme. I will be happy to customize my product for you such that a “lightbox like” behavior is built-in. Let me know
Yes, the stl 3D viewer shortcode generates a view panel that allows the user to rotate and scale the image.
Thank you pushkarparanjpe Here are some more details and my thoughts that might be useful to you.
This is the theme I am considering—link below… I will be using a child theme.
Please see under Albums: if I get this theme, I will be using the mixed images and videos full screen or maybe the mixed images and videos in a grid and I would like to use some 3D STL’s there.
If I used this 3D STL in the Gallery then there would be a lightbox view, I think.
If I used the 3D STL in the Blog it would be in a masonry grid and then on the post page when it opens there.
Basically I would like to be able to use it in any of these places—the Album, The Gallery, a Page or the Blog.
Do you think this is all possible?
Also I wonder about the size of the STL file. Some of the smaller ones I have are 65K but my larger files can be over 1MB. Is there a way to compress these files properly. Have you ever tried this?
Also, I would not want anyone to be copying my product design STLs especially, so compressed files that can’t be used by thieves would be very useful. Please see this free software that can be downloaded from many sites: http://software.materialise.com/minimagics
I wonder what will happen for mobile users and for site traffic/server load with huge uncompressed files—compression would make this more feasible for multiple large files like have, though, what you have will work with my smaller files since they are no larger than an typical image.
However if the files were compressed, can’t be copied, and I could use them in a slider, lightbox etc. this would be fantastic!
You have a very cool plugin! I think you might have a lot more sales if these attributes are available.
What do you think about these ideas and questions?
Thank you for your prompt reply.
Yes, I believe it will work in all three cases – Album, Gallery and Blogpost on the theme that you showed me.
STL File Size:
The plugin doesn’t restrict STL file sizes and any file should open as long as you have enough RAM on your computer. You may chose to save all STL files as BINARY format instead of ASCII since it is a compressed format and does save a lot of space.
Thank you for your suggestions and interest in my stuff.
Will you upgrade this to work with WordPress 3.5? If so, when do you expect to do this?
It works on WordPress 3.5. Thank you for your interest.
Hi guys, I have activated the plugin, but does not recognize the shortcode, what can happen?
Hi, What is your wordpress version? Also let me know the exact shortcode you are trying.
I want to display a still image, click on the image display 3D models, how can I do.
I got constant failed to load stl file error. I input the correct file path bu t no luck. I also used examples but problem persists.
I would like to use this addon for printing service. Is it possible make this viewer show last uploaded file?
If so can you show me the way how to do it? ( Like use this plugin, edit that file etc..)
Anyway great addon
Kindly paste the shortcode line here so that I can help you debug the issue.
Alternatively, you can also contact me at email@example.com to resolve the issues/custom work efficiently.
it is impossible to bring the model to a page record
[stlview stlpath=”http//3dniti.ru/wp-content/plugins/wp-stl-shortcode/models/trouser_clip.stl” w=300 h=300 rmode=point]
if not it is difficult to help
Notice that the URL is malformed. You are missing a ”:”. Also surround the parameters with ”.
Try this -
[stlview stlpath=”http://3dniti.ru/wp-content/plugins/wp-stl-shortcode/models/trouser_clip.stl” w=”300” h=”300” rmode=”point”]
This should work.
Thank you! For a quick response. I will try to write the result.
Can we use this in Joomla website?
Yes. Also, I can make a custom Joomla plugin for you. Write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
is it possible to rotate an stl file automaticly?
Please mail me on email@example.com
I will send you a modified plugin that auto rotates.
Hello, this plugin does not work with theme Klasik Framework. Is there any js conflict ? How to fix it ?
Mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I willcsend you a fix.
Thank you for your feedback.
This plugin work with versione 4.0 of Wordpress ?
I have a question – do the STL files have to be on the same server as the Wordpress installation? Or will external URLs work, too?
The reason I’m asking is, I’m currently building a site for a small 3D printing outfit and they want to handle all their file uploads through Dropbox, so the STL viewer would need to be able to load the files from a Dropbox URL.
Great question !
Answer is Yes
You can absolutely load externally hosted STL files. See this example shortcode:
[stlview stlpath="https://thingiverse-production.s3.amazonaws.com/assets/8b/f1/47/33/74/flower_1.6.2_big-round-long.stl" w=300 h=300 rmode=smooth]
This will work even if your WordPress installation is on www.example.com. (Of course, it will work from thingiverse itself too :P)
Is it still possible to receive a modified plugin that autorotate?
Thanks in advance!!
Thanks for buying with us.
Yes Please look out for the next version release. It will have this feature.
Hello there, I’m looking for this kind of plugin for a client of mine that build mechanical objects, is there the chance to view an online demo of the plugin? To check the real movement of the objects.
Thank you, Alex.
Thanks for your interest in our product.
Please watch the Video Preview on the product page
Hello, I’ve already watched it. I would try it on my own, from the video you can’t feel the fluidity of the movement.
Please send me a PM. I will share a private link with you.
Pre-purchase question, can the plugin display the textures of the 3D objects?
Hello! Do you test your plugin with WP 4.4? Works or not? Thanks.
Hi Pushkar, I’ve bought 2 of your stl plugins! Cheers! And I wonder if the auto-rotate feature is enabled in the newest version now? Or do I have to ask via email?
And I’ve got an additional question: If I choose the width option as “100%”, the width will display at the minimum width, but not maximum, isn’t the html5 supposed to be responsive?
Send me an email, will direct you.
Responsiveness – good suggestion we might support this in the future. Currently the onus is on the integrator
Hi How come the image is gold how can i change this?
