CGTrader now supports Marmoset Viewer embeds

You've asked for it and now it's here – from now on you can have Marmoset Viewer 360° 3D previews embedded in your product pages! We have been looking for a secure option to let your customers interact with the model and see it from all sides before purchase, and we believe we picked the best solution.

To see how it looks on CGTrader, check the Marmoset embed used in this Katana Sword product page.

How to create a preview file

To create a preview, you need to have Toolbag 3 installed. You can download the free 30-day trial copy here. Import your model into the Toolbag, set up your scene and export the Marmoset Viewer (.mview) file. The process is pretty simple and Marmoset has all the questions covered in this short video:

Exporting a Marmoset Viewer file

How to add the embed to your CGTrader product page
Select the Marmoset preview option in the 3D model publisher and upload the .mview file.

That's it! You will be able to see the embedded preview in the product page. Use these controls to make the most of the viewer:

If you are unable to use Marmoset Toolbag to generate 360° previews, we recommend uploading additional preview images from all sides (including previews of the mesh) and adding a YouTube or Vimeo preview for your model.

Albeit not suitable for every single model or scene around, this seems like a huge improvement to me. Well done

Good feature! It does not display the embedded high res thumbnail. Can this be fixed? I know it works on artstation... See here for example: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/character/clothing/male-casual-outfit-1-55d8ee4d-d09d-442c-a75b-09314e400a41
