To display 3D content in real-time we use WebGL, which is a standard in most modern browsers.

    You can check if your browser is compatible on

    For more technical details about WebGL on your machine, see


    • Mozilla Firefox
    • Google Chrome
    • Opera
    • Safari (must enable manually in 7.1.3 [OS X 10.9] and earlier)
      • Go to Safari → Preferences → Advanced and check Show Develop menu in menu bar.
      • Go to Develop → Enable WebGL.
    • Internet Explorer, 11+


    • Android 4.0 with Firefox beta and Google Chrome
    • iOS 8
    • Blackberry browser


    On older browsers or devices with WebGL disabled, models are displayed with an image-based fallback that gives a 360° turntable view of the model.

    If you run into problems, make sure your graphics driver and browser are up-to-date. If that doesn’t help, try one of the other browsers listed above. is a good place to start troubleshooting.

    Sometimes, your browser may disable WebGL based on your GPU. If you are using a compatible browser, but you see an incompatible warning or the viewer performs very badly, try forcing the browser to use your GPU:

    Safari Cookies

    Safari's default handling of cookies from iframes can have undesirable effects on embedded models. If you experience issues entering a private model's password, liking a model, or downloading a model from inside an embed, check your Safari preferences:

      A-ha, yes! It works in Internet Explorer. Sorry, I managed to get distracted yesterday and forgot to try it. It'd be nice if it worked in Chrome, but this works so that's good enough for now. Thanks!

      Hmm, maybe it will be fixed in the next version of Chrome :\
