#121

21 November 2017

Features

Improvements

  • Data API: You can now pass an isInspectable boolean to enable or disable the Model Inspector 2D view. By default, it is disabled on API uploads.
  • We now limit the file size of textures uploaded in 3D Settings to 75MB. However, I wouldn't recommend using such large files as it will use a lot of bandwidth.

Fixes

  • AR mode was broken in the mobile app
  • Wrong link colors on some pages
  • Model Information was not always showing "PBR" when it should
  • Issues with links and foreign alphabet characters in comments
  • Drag 'n drop upload on model page was creating two popups
  • "Report an issue" popup on models was not working
  • Staffpick badge was missing on model cards in some views
  • Various rendering issues related to compression

  • Materials are now created when referenced in an OBJ file even when you do not include the MTL file.

Fixes

  • ui_inspector=0 embed URL parameter was not working
  • The axis widget when using "Show advanced rotation" in 3D Settings was sometimes off-center
  • OAuth2 login for Implicit grants was failing
