There are a range of different methodologies and technical solutions for publishing 3D assets online. When considering which publication method to use, it is important to consider who will be using the model and for which purpose. Considerations include:
the needs of the intended users
how to maximise the 3D user experience
Accessibility for users with standard computer equipment
Support for browser platforms (desktop and mobile)
Sustainable production workflows
Support for annotations and the inclusion of links
The publication of 3D models may involve file format conversion and optimisation procedures to reduce complexity and ensure that there is a responsive and pleasant user experience online.
