Customize sharing options

This article shows you additional settings available when sharing or embedding your Archilogic building model

When sharing your Archilogic building model as a link or embedding it into a website, you can use additional settings to control how the building model will appear. In this article, we'll take a closer look at all customizable options, how they work, and how to set them up.

To open the additional setting options you must first open the share menu. Once open, click the plus icon next to "More settings" to expand the settings menu.

General

The first option lets you decide whether you want the URL or the embedded iframe to open in 2D or 3D mode:

Next, you'll find four checkboxes that let you further customize the appearance of the model you're sharing.

  • Show logo - specify the visibility of the company logo that you've set up in your account settings.
  • Show title - specify whether or not the building model title is shown.
  • Allow share - specify whether or not to show the share options (if you want to allow other people access to the same share menu you're using right now).
  • Allow 2d / Allow 3d - This checkbox changes depending on whether the Open as 2d or 3D is selected. It controls whether the building model can be viewed in the other view mode respectively.
  • Allow image export - specify whether or not the image export feature is available.

2D Settings

In the 2D settings, you can first define if you want to share the model using metric or imperial units.


The space label settings allow you to control if you want to show the space name, custom ID, usage, or size in the 2D view mode. To customize the space name and the custom ID you first have to enable these values in the organization settings.

3D Settings

3D settings only have an impact on the 3D view mode.

You can customize the way the camera bookmark tour works:

None - when the model is loaded, a bookmark tour will not begin (the camera won't move on its own).

First  - the camera will automatically move to the first bookmark and then stop.

Once - the camera will fly through all the bookmarks once and then stop.

Loop - the camera will continuously fly through all the camera bookmarks without stopping.

The next 3 checkboxes give you further control over how the 3D view mode behaves:

Show bookmarks - allows you to control whether the bookmarks menu is shown or minimized.

Show mini-map - allow or prohibit the mini-map in the upper right corner.

Autostart - controls whether the 3D model is automatically loaded when visiting a website where it is embedded or if it has to be clicked first before the 3D content is loaded. The former might have an impact on the overall loading time of the website as the 3D content is being loaded alongside the rest of your website.

If you have the Embed tab open, there is a preview of your iframe at the top left side right next to the iframe code. It lets you experiment and find the perfect setup for your building model.

Remember that the URL or the iframe code will change each time the settings are adjusted. This means that we recommend adjusting the settings first before copying and sharing the URL or the iframe code!
