The Display Options in the web app's Publish tool determine which interactive tools and features will be available to the end user in the published 3D model. Click on any of the following options to read more about it below.
- Information Panel
- Anatomy Descriptions
- 3D Navigation
- Edit Toolbar
- Chapter List
- Label List
Shows/hides the information panel, which contains the chapter title, chapter description, label list (only if enabled and the width is ≥961 pixels), and chapter list (only if enabled and only at certain widths). Appears on the left side if the Viewer is ≥961 pixels wide and at the bottom when the Viewer is ≤960 pixels wide.
Small (≤960px wide)
Large (≥961px wide)
Shows/hides the "Anatomy Search" button in the menu bar. The Anatomy Search tool enables end users to search for anatomical structures in a model by name. They can also turn on surrounding structures to explore spatial relationships in the default Anatomy Tree view, or switch to the Anatomy List to browse through all of the structures contained in the model.
Enables/disables the Reset button, which allows end users to reset the model to its original view after it has been modified by one of the Explore Tools (Hide, Fade, or Isolate). The Reset button is hidden by default and only appears when the model has been modified.
When fullscreen mode is enabled*, shows/hides the Expand button in the menu bar. Clicking the Expand button will cause the model to span the entire screen, providing a widescreen, immersive experience.
*Fullscreen mode is supported on all devices and browsers with the exception of iPhone browsers. To enable fullscreen mode for embedded models, make sure your published embed code includes allowFullScreen="true" or simply allowfullscreen. When fullscreen mode is not enabled, the Expand button will be replaced by a Open in New Tab button, which will open the model in a new browser tab.
Enables/disables the Whiteboard tool, which allows educators to draw on a 2D version of the 3D model to direct the learner's attention to key anatomical concepts.
The Whiteboard tool can be accessed from the More Options menu in the toolbar when enabled.
When the Whiteboard is opened, the 3D model is converted into a 2D image, and you can use your mouse or trackpad (web) or finger (mobile) to draw anywhere on the image to point out key structures, shapes, relationships, or processes. With the Whiteboard tool, you can also:
- Undo, redo, or clear changes at any time using the controls that appear at the top of the image.
Change your brush size or color using the toolbar in the lower-right corner of the screen.
Download your drawing to your computer or mobile device to share or reference with learners later. All images are saved in png format to preserve image quality. Note: The Whiteboard is completely mobile responsive, meaning all captured images will match the dimensions of your screen.
Shows/hides the label list in the information panel. The label list enables end users to quickly navigate to key learning points on the 3D model by providing a complete list of all of the labels in a given chapter. When clicked, each label in the list highlights the matching label in the model, or triggers the actions that were assigned to that label in Studio.
Shows/hides the 3D controls, including pan, zoom in, zoom out, and recenter. These controls enable end users to adjust the position of the model in 3D space.
Shows/hides the Explore Tools button, which opens a toolbar with the following options:
- Select: Clicking on a structure highlights it in yellow and displays its name, enabling the user to identify it.
- Hide: Clicking on a structure hides it from view, enabling the user to see underlying structures.
- Fade: Clicking on a structure makes it transparent but does not hide it, enabling the user to see underlying structures as well as their relationship to the faded structure.
- Undo: Restores a structure after it has been hidden from view with the "Hide" tool. Does not restore faded structures.
Small (≤960px wide)
Large (≥961px wide)
Shows/hides the Help button in the "More" menu. Clicking Help opens a screen on top of the Viewer that illustrates the primary ways a user can interact with a model ("Navigation Basics") and provides a comprehensive 3D navigation key that adapts based on the device type ("All Controls").
Shows/hides the chapter list in the information panel when the Viewer is ≥960px wide. The chapter list provides a complete list of all of the chapters contained within a tour and allows learners to quickly jump to a different chapter. Note: By default, the chapter list is also accessible as a pop-up menu via the chapter controls in the toolbar. Simply click on the chapter number (e.g., 1 / 4) to open it.
Shows/hides a "Read More" link in a selected structure's built-in label. When "Read More" is clicked, a detailed description of the structure will appear in the information panel. Note: All anatomy descriptions are sourced from Wikipedia. If a Wikipedia article is not available for a given structure, a "Read More" link will not appear.
