CST3D SHS viewer

The 3D humanities Consortium has developped a 3D viewer on the openspace 3D platform, a free and open source platform.

Thanks to a simplified interface, the user will have at his disposal a toolbox (measurement tools, annotation, cutting plan, etc.) allowing him to visualize and analyze a 3D object.


The 3D viewer setup download and install several programs, and some antivirus software can sometimes block them without any reasons. Disable your antivirus software and install OpenSpace3D again.
