About publishing 3D models

When you "publish" a 3D model from the BioDigital Human web app, you are essentially packaging it in what we call the "Human Viewer," or simply the "Viewer," and exporting it for use outside the app.

Models can be published as either an embed code or a link.

  • An embed code—another term for iframe, or inline frame—is used to display external content within a webpage. This is the same format used to embed YouTube videos into a webpage.

  • A link can be pasted into any document or webpage and then opened in any web browser.

Regardless of the format you choose, end users can view and interact with your published model wherever you have made it available—no login required!

You can publish any model in our Human Viewer to use as a standalone resource or embed into your website from two places within the web app: My Library and Human Studio. Select the relevant option below and follow the steps provided.

    1. Open My Library and find the saved model you want to publish.
    2. Hover over the model's tile and click the   Publish button.
    3. Customize your Viewer settings to better complement your learning objectives, target device size(s), or page layout. Learn more about the available customization options in 3D embed publishing settings.
    4. Click Copy Embed Code or Copy Link to copy your published 3D model to your browser's clipboard. (Need help deciding which format to choose?)
      • Copy Embed Code generates an iframe, which can be embedded into a webpage just like a YouTube video or image.
      • Copy Link generates a standalone URL, which can be hyperlinked from virtually any website, application, or document and opened fullscreen in your browser.
    5. Paste your copied embed code or link into your website's HTML or learning materials.
    1. Click the  caret next to the Save button and select Publish from the drop-down menu.
