3D Geometric Shapes and Models
We are currently improving the display of data visualizations on ScienceDirect. As a result, 3D visualizations will not display on ScienceDirect immediately. However, you may still submit your data files and they will appear with your article once the new version is available later in 2018.
About the 3D viewer for OBJ and PLY models
Authors of selected Elsevier journals are invited to enrich their online articles by providing supplementary 3D models in OBJ and PLY formats, which will be visualized using the interactive 3D viewer embedded within the article.Using the 3D viewer, the reader can select models, zoom into the model, rotate and pan the model, change display settings, and download original data files. It is also possible to open the 3D viewer in a new window and to view the model in a stereo mode using anaglyph glasses.This 3D viewer was developed in collaboration with Kitware SAS(opens in new tab/window). It supports all major browsers and mobile devices.
