Clari3D is a viewer for 3D files from architecture or mechanical CAD. It exists in the Free, Light and Pro versions for Linux, Mac and Windows in order to meet the needs of our customers.

3D Connexion Space Mouse
3DConnexion SpaceMouse®

It is designed for non-specialist users and its user interface is simple and intuitive. Immediately, you can review your model, annotate it and change the rendering settings.

Clari3D software are compatible with 3D Connection Space Mouses® in order to make 3D navigation much easier than before.

You can send a VIZ file to your customers; they are able to open it with Clari3D Free that is not charged. The VIZ file format is one of the most compact in the market.

You can exchange in an even more simple way, sending a 3D model directly by email.

more information...

Clari3D generates an email with an attached HTML page that embeds the 3D model and a link to our WebGL 3D viewer. The file can be displayed immediately everywhere without the need to install any additional software as it uses only JavaScript (plugin free). Clicking in the attached document in the email will open the Web browser and will display the 3D model.

The 3D data are embedded in the HTML file and so, there is no access to any server in order to fetch them (the only thing that is obtained from Internet is our JavaScript viewer, in order to have always the last version). Your data stay strictly confidential and are not put in any server.

Clari3D gives you also the possibility to save a 3D CAD model in HTML. This HTML code can be put in your Website, for free, allowing your visitors to view it.

In order to have more control, you can also save the model in our J3D format for our Web viewer and design the Web page as you want. And this is free of charge!

Writing your custom HTML page is no more complicated than:

<script type="text/javascript"
         src="https://www.clari3D.com/js/clari3D.js/clari3D.min.js">

<div
  class="clari3D"
  axis="yes"  base="yes" gui="yes" level="expert"
  background="yes" tree_wrap="true"
  themes="gray opacity rounded shadow"
  src="assets/webgl/model-1.j3d">
</div>

With its powerful 3D render engine, OpenGL based, Clari3D is able to display huge 3D models in common desktop workstations. In addition, it has real-time rendering optimizations such as Level Of Details (LOD), Rendering Degradation, Details Removal that speed up the rendering during the user interactions.

more information...

We have designed Clari3D especially for wide 3D models: Level Of Details, Progressive Scene Degradation, Projected Scene Simplifications are algorithms that dramatically decrease rendering time, in real time.

Clari3D is very optimized in term of memory footprint; it uses for this purpose a custom 3D data structure and a custom renderer developed for years.

In addition, when this is possible, some user interactions are in fact performed in 2D, over the 3D model. This is the case in the quotation tool.

Thus, we have been able to display a 20 million polygons model in a 2006 Macbook with a basic Intel® GMA graphic card!

Clari3D in Linux.

Clari3D is developed with Linux Ubuntu®, its native Linux platform. However, it can be installed in RedHat Linux, Fedora Linux, CentOS and some other distributions as a Snap or and AppImage packages.

Clari3D works on Linux, Mac and Windows using the native SDK. You can work with all your customers and be confident that they are able to see your files!

more information...

Clari3D is designed with a custom toolkit API that is platform neutral. All the modules speak with this API and so, are platform-neutral. There is of course one module that is deeply platform dependant, the TK module.

In addition, Clari3D uses a GUI description (such as an XML description) and each module sends its description to the TK module. This facilitates porting and independence.

If you have plenty of files to convert, Clari3D is associated to a server tool Clari3D Server that is a command line utility for file servers or Web server.

more information

Clari3D Server is a kind of GUI less Clari3D: it is made with the same source code, shares the same libraries and configuration options, but it operates from its command line.

Clari3D Server can be used in Web servers to convert CAD files in VIZ or J3D as soon as they are requested for display. It can also be used in batch mode in order to pre-convert parts of CAD objects that are assembled with the VAS (VIZ Assembly) file format on request. Emerson-Leroy Somer online configurator works with Clari3D Server both in batch mode and in real time.

Explore your models

Clari3D has advanced tools to help you to explore your 3D models.

The tree-view shows the structure of the 3D files with the parts. Parts can be shown or hidden with their check-boxes. The Pro and Light versions allow to edit the rendering attributes (color, transparency, rendering mode, ...).

The hilighting mode in the Pro version makes the relation between the displayed objects and the part list by clicking either on the 3D objects or on the part names in the tree-view.

The hilighted part is displayed normally while the other parts are either hidden, displayed transparently or with their outlines.

The picking mode allows to identify an object in the 3D scene and to select its tree-view entry when clicked.

Select your point of view

A difficult action in 3D is to "go somewhere" in the model.

Clari3D offers several great tools for that, and the simpler is the Spot tool.

To select a new point of view:

  • select the tool in the toolbar,

  • move the mouse on the model; the target point is a small dot in red over the object under the mouse and it will become the target of view and the center of rotation,

  • click to validate the target dot and enter in the viewing area selection,

  • double click to validate the viewing area and the point of view is now as you expected.

Quote your model in one click!

The Quote tool in Clari3D takes measures on a 3D model.

The following quotes are available:

  • distance between vertices,

  • angle between 3 vertices,

  • circle between 3 vertices,

  • bounding box of the whole model or of selected objects.

Quotes are put inside the 3D model.

Cutting as you want

The cut plane is an interactive 3D object that allows to cut the current model.

It has handles on its corners that can be either clicked or dragged. On click, the cut plane is rotated by 90°. On drag, the cut plan is freely rotated, following the movements of the mouse.

In the middle of the cut plan, a handle translates the model on its axis, moving the plan.

Change the light

Change the light

Sun light

The first immediate way to change the light position is to drag the little sun in the logo, at the bottom-right corner of the view.

If the mouse is over the logo, the arrow keys can be used to change the light position as well.

In the Scene module, the light colors can be set individually, such as the ambient color, the diffuse color, etc.

If the light is 'fixed', it is attached in the scene. It is attached to the camera otherwise, meaning that it follows the point-of-view.

Light settings

In the Pro version, the Light module can manage up to 8 lights.

Each light can be a sun (infinite light) or a spot. Spots can be put anywhere in the scene, providing nice effects.

Export your model in 2D

Sometime, it is needed to put a 3D model in a documentation. Usually, a screen copy of the rendered outlined model is inserted.

However, it should be nicer to insert a vectorial image rather than a bitmap in order to be resolution independent.

Clari3D Pro transforms any 3D model into a full 2D vectorial image with hidden lines written as dashed lines.

The supported output formats are SVG, DXF, Postscript that are full 2D vectorial formats or JPEG...

Explore the interior of the model

The skin tool is a window that displays the hidden parts of a model.

Several modes can be used:

  • wire-frame: display the window interior in wire-frame,

  • outline: display the outlines,

  • solid, outline solid: display the interior as solid; it is useful if the exterior of the window is displayed in wire-frame, for example,

  • cut-plan: make a hole in the window; the depth of the hole can be tuned with the scroll-bar,

  • skin: remove the skin of the objects as an onion

Preview 3D: the icons of your 3D files as 3D previews

Preview 3D is a standalone application and a software component integrated in the Operating System allowing to obtain thumbnail previews from the 3D files.

Preview 3D in Finder Preview 3D in Windows Explorer
Preview 3D replaces the 3D file icons by a preview of their contents.

The previews are displayed in place of the file icon in the file manager, Finder® on Mac, Explorer® on Windows®. Some other applications can take advantage of Clari3D previewing, such as Mail in Mac.

Preview 3D is able to extract a preview image from the files that does not have one, such as STL files that are in pure ASCII. For this purpose, Preview 3D has its own 3D renderer.

It can be use in mechanic, architecture, engineering or communication.

In the table, embedded means that the file format has a previewing image inside and computed means that Clari3D Preview is able to compute the preview by itself. For some file formats such as 3MF Consortium, if the file does not have a preview inside, Clari3D will compute it.

Several files can be previewed at the same time by drag & drop in the standalone application. In addition, textures are opened.

Limitations

This is not a 3D viewer: do not expect to interactively review a 3D file with it.

For the files with preview images inside, this image is used as is with the accuracy it has.

For the files that can be rendered, MacOSX and Windows both forbid the previewing components to open other files; therefore, the textures associated to the 3D files cannot be opened.

In addition, the software component limits itself its computation time and its memory use; this way, a rendering can be interrupted before the preview image extraction in order to preserve the system resources.

clari3d.js, the 3D viewer for your Website

clari3d.js is the Web version of the desktop 3D viewer with simplified functionalities. It uses JavaScript, so no plug-in is needed and it works with all modern Web browsers on any operating system, even on mobile devices.

In Clari3D for Desktops, you can get a Web page with your 3D model embedded inside with the menu 'File/Save as' and choose the HTML output format. In the same way, it is possible to obtain directly the J3D file that is the file read by our Web viewer.

With it, you can put any CAD model in the Web in a couple of seconds.

It is highly configurable (background or not, user interface or not, etc), so you can adapt the look and feel to your requirements.

Clari3D Server is able to convert numerous CAD files into HTML or J3D, in batch mode or in real time. In addition, Clari3D Server can sign the generated files, and this signature is displayed in the viewer. It is the preferred way to industrialize the J3D generation. Three converter licenses are available, for 1000, 5000 or an unlimited number of conversions per month.

You can see several samples in the sides of this parts by clicking on the arrows on the left or the right of this part:

  • The first sample shows a simple model, without user interface,
  • The second model shows an actual CAD model, with the user interface,
  • The third model is a 3D scan result with texture.

Clari3D Server

linux osx windows
Version: 2.0.2.170827
Server tool

Clari3D Server is the conversion tool designed for the servers such as Web servers. It operates in real time or in batch mode.

Clari3D Server is a server side converter that converts 3D CAD files into our native VIZ file format or in WaveFront OBJ, STL, J3D for our Web 3D viewer clari3d.js or HTML with embedded 3D data.

Clari3D Server can also assemble several heterogeneous files into a single VIZ using its VIZ Assembly file format.

Preview 3D

osx windows
Version: 2.0.2.170827
System tool

Preview 3D replaces the icon of the supported 3D files by a preview of their contents in your file explorer.

Preview 3D either gets the preview image stored in the file (such as DWG CAD files) or renders the 3D scene with a custom 3D renderer.

It is a software component that is integrated in your system during the installation.

This way, you can see a preview of the CAD files in your explorer, Explorer in Windows or Finder in MacOS.

Preview 3D recognizes 3D Studio, STL, XGL, WaveFront, ASCII points clouds, Step / IGES, AutoCad® DWG™, Trimble Sketchup®, Dassault System 3DXml®, CATPart® or CATProduct®, 3MF Consortium, XGL.

In addition, there is the standalone application that allows previewing of several files by drag & drop.

Notice that this is not a 3D viewer; it is not interactive and for some file formats (ie DWG) it uses the preview image stored in the file, with the quality it has.

Windows Version

Windows 10 Compatible Clari3D Free / Light / Preview / Pro are supported by Andéor, SAS on the following editions of Windows 10 – Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Education, and Windows 10 Enterprise. Clari3D Free / Light / Preview / Pro is supported on the in-market supported Windows 10 Current Branch for Business (CBB) servicing branches only and will be supported for the lifetime of the app until 01/2027.

Clari3D is available in the Apple Store

Apple Version

Clari3D software can be obtained from either the Apple Store or from this store.

Apple Store

Software gotten from the Apple Store have the benefit to be validated by the Apple engineers.

In addition, one license can be installed to up to three systems, for the same user; for example, a desktop computer and a laptop.

The software are executed in a secured layer called Sandbox. In the sandbox, software have limited access to the data in the computer. This is why, for example, Clari3D is unable to open textures associated to a 3D file.

Our Store

We have aligned the number of installations per license to three, as in the Apple Store.

The software share completely their source code with the Apple Store versions, so they can be considered as validated as well...

The extensions come with separated setup programs, so the main application is smaller than the Apple Store version that must include all the software components, even if they are separated extensions...

The price is significantly lower than in the Apple Store.

In addition, we provide a money back guarantee during seven days following a purchase on simple request.

Operating system

You can get our software for several operating systems; be sure that you have selected your operating system in the top menu and the download links will be updated automatically.

When you purchase a software, you can install it in three systems for the same user, whatever is the operating system.

Clari3D Free

If you can, please prefer Clari3D Light rather that the Free version or buy Clari3D Preview. This gives us the opportunity to plan further developments and improvements on our software.

Update policy

Generally, sofwares in the market are updated every year. Customers can obtain the new version with an important rebate, generally 30%.

This is not our policy: when you buy our software, you can be confident to be updated for years, for free. Of course, at a time, there will be charged updates, but this is not yet planed as since 2010,

We plan to merge Clari3D Free, Light and Pro in one product with InApp purchases; Clari3D Light and Clari3D Pro owners will be updated for free with the equivalent features.

  1. Free 3D imports are available in all the Clari3D line for free. It is regularly extended as soon as we write a new library.

  2. Pro CAD imports are optional modules for Clari3D Pro and Clari3D Server with a price. They are not free because they are third party components that are subject to royalties.

What's next?

Clari3D is a long term project... Its development was initially planed in three phases:

A 3D modeller for Clari3D

Development phases

  1. A nice 3D viewer: allows to review any 3D CAD file in any platforms; this includes animation, slides and some other CAD tools,

  2. Sharing 3D: allows secure sending and receiving 3D files; this leads the design of the Web plug-ins, and more recently the WegGL 3D view clari3d.js,

  3. Modeling 3D: allows creating and editing 3D models.

The futur

Clari3D has now reached the second phases. Now our developments are:

  1. Clari3D will be able to triangulate soon! We are finishing a promised point cloud to triangles algorithm that will allow to open a point cloud file and to transform it transparently in a full 3D textured model.

  2. We would like now to include a ray-tracer, GPU optimized, with the capability to generate photo-realistic images and video of animations (this feature was not in our initial plans).

    This ray-tracer will focus on light mapping, allowing to analysis the light received in some parts of the model with accurate light descriptions.

  3. We have started the last step, the more ambitious one: create a 3D modeler. As Clari3D is designed to be a viewer, its internal data structures are very optimized; transforming them for modeling is a great challenge but we believe to obtain a very efficient modeler with low memory needs.

    You will see in the next releases some functionalities comming from the modeler; probably, the first one will be the ability to move, rotate and scale any 3D objects... The next one will be probably the animation tool able to step the transformations on the objects in order to create complex animations.

Multi-select in the treeview!Mon, 20 Nov 2017, +0100

Multi-selection in Clari3D

The next version of Clari3D will allow multi-item selection in the treeview as well as multi-object selection in the 3D scene.

The rendering options of the selected objects may be modified globally instead of changing them one by one.

In addition, the hilighting mode will be able to operate on the multi-selection.

The multi-object selection will be also used by the cut tool in order to cut (optionnaly) only the selected objects.

Later, it will be used by the new tool in preparation that will allow to add 3D models in existing models and then by the Clari3D modeler that will extend Clari3D Pro for free...

We would like to thank a lot the early users who have registered their account! Thank so much you for your interest. Your work will not be lost: your account will not be deleted and you will be notified when the software is available.

Users registered in caniviz.com will be transferred automatically in clari3d.com and the new version of their software will be made available. You will receive an email with a new activation number for the new activation scheme and your download links...

The new Website and the application are in progress.Mon, 7 Nov 2016, +0100

Changing the name of several applications as well as the licensing scheme can be a tedious task, and it is! Every link to the old name must be removed, all the URL, documentations, comments need to be changed...

Clari3D Free is now finished and tested for Mac and Windows. We are currently working on the renaming of the server tools...

-- Clari3D Team

The new website is startedWed, 10 Aug 2016, +0200

The new Website is started with an original design based on the last cutting edges technologies of the Web:

We have designed for this purpose a Website compiler that generates static Web pages.

In addition, we have renamed 'caniviz' as 'clari3d', with the new logo.

CaniVIZ.js integrationSat, 30 Jan 2016, +0100

We are finishing our WebGL CaniVIZ viewer integration: caniviz.js is a tremendous 3D viewer for the Web browsers.

From CaniVIZ Free, Light and Pro, everyone will able to save a file in either J3D (our custom 3D format for the Web) or directly in HTML with the J3D file embedded inside and put in the Web (The caniviz.js functionalities however will depend on the used CaniVIZ generator).

In addition, we have added a nice feature in the 'File/Send by email' menu of CaniVIZ: in one click, the current file can be send by email to any receivers, either in VIZ our in HTML. With the HTML format, the receiver will be able to display the 3D file without the need of installing any software...

In the future, the files sent will be optionally 'managed' ; this means that they will be stored in our server, and any receiver will be able to annotate it; the annotations will be dynamically shared between all the receivers.

Windows activation correctedFri, 20 Nov 2015, +0100

Windows

The Windows version of the CaniVIZ suite has been update in out Store in order to correct a potential software activation problem that can occur in some systems, avoiding activation.

CaniVIZ now has beautiful shadows!Thu, 2 Apr 2015, +0200

CaniVIZ 3D Preview 1.1.13 for Mac releasedWed, 2 Apr 2014, +0200

Caniviz 3d Preview

A new version of CaniVIZ 3D Preview is submitted to the Apple Store today.

This release has the following changes:

CaniVIZ 3D Preview is a tool that replaces the 3D file icons by a thumbnail of their contents. What is nice with CaniVIZ Preview is that it allows to generate a preview for file formats that does not have a preview image inside, such as STL that is pure ASCII file.

CaniVIZ 3D Preview comes with a plug-in that is used by the system to generate the preview in the Finder or in other places where preview are allowed, and with an application that allows drag and drop.

CaniVIZ 3D preview handle the following formats: 3D Studio, STL, WaveFront, ASCII point cloud, Step / IGES, AutoCad® DWG™, Trimble Sketchup® or Dassault System 3DXml®, CATPart® and CATProducts®.

Notice that the rendered files are rendered without the textures due to the Apple QuickLook technology that is protected by a sandbox, and some wide files cannot be rendered due to time and resources limitations.

Spatial Interop and Andéor partnership now endedTue, 4 Jun 2013, +0200

Dassault System Spatial Interop is our CAD file format readers (Step, IGES, CATIA, Pro/E, etc).

They have chosen to change their licence in a way that is clearly unfriendly for start-ups and small business companies. This group only focus on money and profit without any consideration for investment in the future. This is very inglorious for this French company.

But finally, this good news for our customers because we now have a second source CAD reader that is much more efficient (models are smaller and more beautiful), much more small (the binary libraries are about 30MB while Spatial Interop was +250MB!) and with a much more affordable price... In addition, the readers will be available for Windows, Mac and Linux!

We are working very hard to make available the new CAD readers.
