Vorteile: ShapeDiver bridges the gap between 3D modelling software and the browser. There is only so much you can do with 3D JavaScript libraries like ThreeJS or Babylon, but with ShapeDiver viewers you can bring all the power of Rhino and Grasshopper right into your browser. The ever expanding JavaScript API allows you to interact with the 3D scene to create rich user interfaces and experiences, while the heavy lifting is done by Rhino servers. 3D artists can stick to what they are familiar with and programmers can focus on their app and can solve problems that would otherwise be near insurmountable.

Nachteile: The downside of any boxed product is that it is harder to do things outside the box. The ShapeDiver viewer comes with some default logic and settings that may not be exactly what you want. However, over the past years more and more options have been added that allow you to interact with your 3D models in many different ways.

Vorteile: The use of this software is really easy, you just have to upload the file and all menus will be automatically created. The models can be changed as much as you desire so it is almost unlimited the quantity of features you can add. Such ease and flexibility lets your imagination fly, creating incredible results. Finally, the models are very optimised so they work smoothly in both, desktop and mobile devices.

Nachteile: The materials could look more realistic and the shadows and ambient occlusion should have more controllers to be able to set its position or intensity. Normal maps and alpha maps also need a controller for its intensity so that they display the materials as desired.

ShapeDiver enables enormously !

Kommentare: We are developing custom-produced products that we wish to offer to clients but also to our partners who are the producing part, so Shapediver also offers us a platform to, to upgrade the business to business workflow.

Vorteile: As a user of Rhino and Grasshopper ( CAD - Package with skriptiung interface ) we are just amazed that it is that easy to port a parametrically designed project working on your local computer into a solution for the web, with full freedom to update the project at any time and simply upload the new state, which updates online in minutes.

Nachteile: We found that the backend could be organized even a little bit more time-saving in terms of how the parameter-list is sequenced. As far as we could see this has to be rearranged every time you upload a new Grasshopper-patch, and there is no way to predefine this sequence already within Grasshopper.

Kommentare: I employ the platform to automate the design of tailored orthopaedic splints. I must say that it is a stable and reliable platform to publish configurable 3D models/scenes. I would recommend Shapediver for those who: 1) Have a great/niche mass-customisation application/product/idea; 2) Have a working Grasshopper 3D definition; 3) Is working with 2D or 3D printing/CNC milling/Laser cutting.

Vorteile: Since I am a Grasshopper 3D user, I like that: 1) Shapediver platform makes it possible to publish my developed definitions online without any web development/programming knowledge. 2) The platform has a very clear and user-friendly interface with a relatively simple model/viewport configuration settings. 3) Shapediver's team is working hard to provide compatibility with various third-party plug-ins (such as Kangaroo, Weaverbird, Mesh+) which are inevitable design tools for the extension of the design capabilities in Grasshopper 3D. 4) ShapeDiver makes it possible to upload user data directly from a web browser 5) ShapeDiver supports ShapeWays API.

Nachteile: I experienced a few difficulties when uploading models with: a) custom scripts (i.e. written in GhPython); b) linear dimensions. However, the platform has great support on discourse.mcneel.com where I have successfully solved the mentioned above issues.

Kommentare: It provides an easy way to show design solutions to client or collaborator on project via web platform. It provides me an easy way to show complex parametric models to the people (both architects and non-architects), only via web browser

Vorteile: It is based on very powerful modeling environment for parametric design- grasshopper3d, so design scenarios and possibilities are infinite.
Support many grasshopper's add-ons and list of supported add-ons are still increasing
Supports materials and textures
Supports exporting 3d models, technical drawings,
Non-commercial free licence already supports embedding models on websites.
It has fast and efficient technical support via forum

Nachteile: It has been developed mainly as an product design configurator, so some features (regarding the configuration of lights and shadows in the scene) which are particularly important for architectural design, are still missing.

Limitless creativity for users!

Vorteile: - The API is great, you can do almost anything with it, from building a custom interface to adding new features on top of the viewer. Very flexible. - Easy and painless integration, even if you plan to use the API in order to customize the configurator: load the ShapeDiver lib, add a few lines of JS to your website and you have it. - Smooth visualization and animation, it feels like you are using a desktop app instead of a website.

Nachteile: The model loading is a bit low sometimes, although that probably has more to do with the model itself than with the ShapeDiver platform.

Shapediver is the chance to transform my 3D Moleding skills in business.

Kommentare: Our company currently builds furniture online configurator and the thing I liked the most in addition to the software itself is the customer support. Forum is becoming quite active and I also had many questions answered by phone and emails.

Vorteile: The software is realy easy to learn to use if you understand grasshopper and have basic understanding of texture mapping.

Nachteile: The model update times. Even when the specific model result is cached in, it still looks like the model dissapears for a moment and then appears - it happens within sub-second period but it is enough to break the feeling of continuity.

Vorteile: Software is always under development, you can see big updates quite often. Customer support is better than you need, advising with all the questions you have, from marketing perspectives to development and API support.

Nachteile: Because it is a new piece of a new software there is lack of tutorials for new developers to implement this. So a lot of things must be done with customer suppor (which is nice) but could be avoided.

Kommentare: ShapeDiver gives companies the unique ability to present their products in 3D using the flexibility of parametric design: in simple words, once the 3D model is setup parametrically using Rhino and Grasshopper, it is possible for users to make changes and quickly see the result by simply adjusting parameters using an intuitive interface. This, along with the extended APIs, opens up many possibilities for creating innovative interactive configurators and catalogs, with the possibility of guiding the client up to the final purchase and payment.

Vorteile: - Easy integration with Rhino and Grasshopper
- Unique way for presenting product configurators and interactive 3D models
- Platform in very rapid development
- Friendly and responsive technical support

Nachteile: - As a developer sometimes I'd like even more flexibility or performance, however from what I know many of these feature requests are under development.

I used ShapeDiver for my master thesis in product design, embedding the editor in my website.

Vorteile: The team is extremely kind and fast to answer, we developed a productive relationship and they were very helpful with any doubt I had. The website works perfectly and the service is very fast (uploading a model only takes few seconds), I also had no problem using the grasshopper plug in. The editor works perfectly also on an external website. The projects showcased on the editor look very good and the designer has a wide choice of colors and other details to choose from. I think it's really one of a kind service for parametric design visualisation.

Nachteile: I'd say there is nothing in particular that I had problems dealing with. For any small questions I had their answers were extremely quick. Also, the forum area is really useful to solve doubts.

Kommentare: With the help of Shapediver we can easily display our customized 3D models online and I would recommend them to anyone who has a similar use case.

Vorteile: Easy integration of the 3D viewer, adaption of the 3D scene can be done through the JavaScript API, which is fairly good documented (https://app.shapediver.com/api). Really nice support, they try to provide help whenever possible.

Nachteile: Sometimes model changes take some time, but this of course depends on the model complexity.

Vorteile: - works with grasshopper
- very good and quick support
- detailed documentation of how to use it
- many useful features

Nachteile: there is no support for dynamo yet, but as far as i know it will be possible in the future

Vorteile: From the user POV: great fun to play around. From a digitally strategic POV this is really groundbreaking: configuring things in 3D means changing shapes, rotating, changing shapes, rotating. This is so much more involving than any 2D configurator out there especially for products that want to be discovered from different angles.
