3DHOP (3D Heritage Online Presenter)
3DHOP is an open-source JavaScript framework for the creation of interactive visualizations of 3D models directly inside a standard web page. It can be easily configured and is able to work with high-resolution 3D models on low-bandwidth without the need for a specialized server. The framework includes a number of in-built tools to allow for the manipulation of 3D models.

3DHOP is a free JavaScript framework for displaying 3D models online. The interface can be customised in a variety of ways allowing users to have various degrees of control over the models and access to tools (hotspots, measurement, point picking, sectioning).

Using JavaScript, it requires no specialist server set up although files must be converted to the Nexus (NXS or compressed NXZ) format for display. A tool for converting files from PLY and OBJ format is freely available.

User Experiences

The 3DHOP website contains a number of developer and third-party examples along with tutorials for various aspects of the viewer.
