Clari3D Lite is a 3D viewer designed for non-technical users and able to handle large 3D files with several million polygons on general public platforms.
It uses a software 3D rendering engine that makes it very independant from the hardware.
It can be used for mechanics, architecture, engineering or communication. It opens Step, IGES, 3D Studio, STL, WaveFront, XGL and ASCII scan cloud files. Clari3D also saves the 3D files in our VIZ format, one of the most compact in the market.
Clari3D Lite works on MacOS®, Windows® and Linux®, as well as in the Web browsers and it can be integrated into third party applications using its SDK.
It allows to send a 3D model by email with the 3D data and the link to the viewer embedded inside. In addition, any 3D model can be converted in J3D, the file format of our Web 3D viewer clari3d.js or event more, directely in HTML, allowing you to publish a 3D model in your Web site.
Clari3D proposes the functionalities needed to review 3D projects, like rotation, translation and zoom, easy point of view selection and fly mode.
The property tree displays the structure of the 3D files where the components can be hidden or displayed one by one. The light position and its properties are easily modifiable, as well as the base and the background, in order to obtain nice renderings. The Anaglyph mode displays the scene in relief at a low cost, with Red-Green or Red-Blue glasses.
For demonstrations, the Showroom mode lets Clari3D working alone by displaying the 3D scene in various point of views.
Clari3D Lite now has a built in support of the 3D SpaceMouses from 3D-connexion®.
If you encounter any problem, please contact our support line, this is the only way we have to solve the it.
- Fix display FPS in the software renderer
- Add level-of-detail to the R3D software renderer
Ratings and Reviews
Does not work with STL files
I have tried three or four STL files, these are files that have already been printed to a 3D printer. This software cannot render them in thing close to what they are. It takes 3D shapes and changes them to planes….. Need a lot more work.
Nice app for Steps
Open the steps files correctely - the disply is a little bit slow
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review.
Indeed, the rendering is pure software and does not use hardware accelerator. Clari3D and Clari3D Pro use the 3D accelerator. This is a pure marketing positioning...
It doesn't open the obj file.
.obj file is not working with this app. Don't waste your time.
Developer Response ,
We have seen that some exported OBJ files cannot be opened. This is already fixed but not yet published.
If you have the possibility, could you please send us the OBJ file or an extract of the file in order to see it this is the same problem?
Thank you in advance.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
