Open Brush Support in 3OV - Make your sculptures come to life in your website!


Openbrush is an app that lets you paint in 3D space with virtual reality. The sculptures constructed in the app are always impressive and include animations with interesting lighting effects. The Icosa Foundation started an effort to preserve the Tilt Brush app through their open source project called Open Brush.

It has been high on my list of hopes to support Tilt/Open Brush models in 3OV. There are some amazing artists out there that I would love to be able to post their sculptures in a blog format to document their work over time.

Starting today the Three Object Viewer supports Open Brush files thanks to the awesome work the team did to publish a parser that was very easy to implement in 3OV!

There are a few things to keep in mind when using the new Three Object Three Icosa Plugin:

  1. The OpenBrush materials will only animate and work with the inner Model Block and the Three Object Block. This means that you should not expect these to work as your base environment mesh. We'll look into support for that in a future release.
  2. There is a companion plugin that you will need to install alongside the Three Object Viewer to enable the brushes.

Here's a video tutorial on how to install and use the feature. Go make cool stuff!

Download the companion brushes plugin here and install alongside the Three Object Viewer Version 1.0.5 or higher
