CL3VER’s cloud-based platform turns 3D models into interactive presentations in one click

Single-click support is available for Revit and 3ds Max users, while plugins for SketchUp and Rhino are in Beta.

A cloud-based platform for interactive web and mobile 3D presentations in AEC and manufacturing, CL3VER has launched CL3VER 3D that can create browser-based presentation of a 3ds Max or Revit scene with a single click. CL3VER claims that presentations can be created and shared 10× faster through any web browser.

An older version of CL3VER required users to rebuild lights and materials inside the application. The one-click method simplifies this. Users can connect their projects to realtime 3D environments while navigating freely with automatic camera transitions. Revit BIM information and V-Ray for 3ds Max scene setups are also supported.

CL3VER says CL3VER 3D is a powerful collaboration tool that helps team members provide realtime feedback via cloud-based annotations, comments, and bookmarks in their browser.

Other features include:

  • Realtime rendering—a newly developed realtime render engine supports ray-traced global illumination, dynamic daylight, realtime reflections, and physically based materials. Users can see their scene visualized instantly with improved photorealism.
  • BIM support—predefined 2D and 3D views, worksets and linked models are included in the presentation quickly, allowing users to easily present BIM projects.
  • V-ray scene setup support—full compatibility with V-Ray scene setups ensures transfer of all V-Ray materials without any extra pre-processing.
  • Private web sharing—projects can be sent via a link that allows full access to the presentation. With one set location, teams can store all their comments in a secure place.
  • Multiple outputs—presentations can be accessed in the cloud, in VR, or offline, making the communication cycle between designers and decision makers much shorter.
  • Post-processing tools—onboard controls for resolution, backgrounds, gamma, vignettes and light intensity allow users to make end-moments adjustments.

Promoting integration with V-ray

Last year, Chaos Group announced a new partnership with CL3VER and invested €2 million in the company. The first goal of the partnership was to connect Chaos Group V-Ray to CL3VER’s interactive presentation platform. Soon in collaboration with Chaos Group, CL3VER will connect the new realtime engine to V-Ray, enabling enterprise users to create photorealistic still images of current views, as well as automatically bake lightmaps to improve the visual quality of their presentations.

Pricing/availability

CL3VER 3D is now available for Revit and 3ds Max users. SketchUp and Rhino users can access the beta platform here. Price: $40/month for an entry account, $60/month for pro account.

CL3VER offers two months free on purchase of a yearly license. Users can also avail 25% discount on buying any annual license until November 4.

A free trial of CL3VER 3D is available now.
