Welcome to the main installation package of Clari3D Lite.
Clari3D Lite is a 3D viewer designed for non-technical users and able to handle large 3D files with several million polygons on general public platforms.
It uses a software 3D rendering engine that makes it very independent from the hardware.
It can be used for mechanics, architecture, engineering or communication. It opens Step, IGES, 3D Studio, STL, WaveFront, XGL and ASCII scan cloud files. Clari3D also saves the 3D files in our VIZ format, one of the most compact in the market.
Clari3D Lite works on MacOS®, Windows® and Linux®, as well as in the Web browsers and it can be integrated into third party applications using its SDK.
It allows to send a 3D model by email with the 3D data and the link to the viewer embedded inside. In addition, any 3D model can be converted in J3D, the file format of our Web 3D viewer clari3d.js or event more, directly in HTML, allowing you to publish a 3D model in your Web site.
Clari3D proposes the functionalities needed to review 3D projects, like rotation, translation and zoom, easy point of view selection and fly mode.
The property tree displays the structure of the 3D files where the components can be hidden or displayed one by one. The light position and its properties are easily modifiable, as well as the base and the background, in order to obtain nice renderings. The Anaglyph mode displays the scene in relief at a low cost, with Red-Green or Red-Blue glasses.
For demonstrations, the Showroom mode lets Clari3D working alone by displaying the 3D scene in various point of views.
Clari3D Lite now has a built in support of the 3D SpaceMouses from 3D-connexion®.
If you encounter any problem, please contact our support line, this is the only way we have to solve the it.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install clari3d-lite-64, simply use the following command:
