We want to get an overview what websites are there to show/share 3D models online. Basically like a youtube for 3D models :)

http://3dfile.io/

supports "exploding" of assemblies with a slider - very handy to show assembly of several parts - does not support shadows so general display quality is not spectacular - support IGS, and a few other formats


http://p3d.in/

supports textures and more complex shaders - rather flexible with material setup - no shadows - supports only OBJ format


https://sketchfab.com

material and scene settings similarly featurerich as p3d.in but messes up smoothing groups as OBJ import


http://www.3dvieweronline.com

Did not work with iges file upload. viewer looks rather unpolished. worked in Chrome - imported geometry is faulty.


http://www.sharecad.org

Can't even show solid models, only wireframe...


http://tinkercad.com

Seems to be optimized for minecraft - model was blocky after import :)


https://grabcad.com <- Tool of choice for now

allows cross section cutting, exploding of parts and shows assembly tree where individual parts can be hiddedn - free limited account - supports lots of file formats, STEP seems to work best
