Understanding Web Toolkit API

The CAD Exchanger Web Toolkit addon provides Javascript API to access and visualize 3D models.

For consistency, Javascript classes and their methods use names which are aligned with C++ CAD Exchanger SDK. You can always refer to SDK User’s Guide for respective C++ API for additional details.

‍Note: the classes responsible visualization in Web Toolkit are aligned with Visualization Toolkit API. Refer to Visualization Addon User's Guide for details.

Moreover we recommend that you spend some time to study the above User’s Guide in order to get better understanding of:

  • Supported 3D formats and their contents;
  • Data model organization (including product structure);
  • B-Rep and polygonal geometries;
  • Meta-data (colors, materials, names, etc.);
  • Specific concepts such as PMI;
  • Key elements of the visualization architecture;
  • Visualization scene graph;
  • Scene nodes attributes (appearance, transformation, geometry, etc.).
