This page describes the page 'Annotation Objects'.

  • Annotations can be added to a publication.

Add Annotation Object

Click 'Upload New Object' in the top right corner to add an annotation object.

The allowed Orbit formats can be found on Supported Generic Resources > 3D Models.

Specs & Tags

Double-click on an annotation will directly open the Specs & Tags page. This page displays annotation information and can be updated at all times.

The thumbnail is used in the console and the 3D Model library to give a preview of the model.

An online thumbnail can be added by copying the logo URL to Thumbnail Hyperlink. An offline thumbnail can be added by copying the thumbnail file to this folder: …\Orbit 3DM Publisher\server\program\wwwroot\thumbnail. Copy the URL structure http://<service ID>:<port>/thumbnail/<filename> to the Thumbnail Hyperlink. For example http://localhost:1111/thumbnail/thumbnail.png


Add tags to annotation and re-use them for filtering and linking them to resource groups and publications.


Delete an annotation object. This action is available on all annotation pages.
