This is documentation of an archived release.
For documentation on the current version, please check Knowledge Base.


This page describes the pages 'Resources' and 'Individual Resources'. These pages can be found under the tabs 'My Catalog' and 'Company Catalog'.


  • Resources need to be well-prepared prior to upload. Via Orbit 3DM Import and Upload Tool or Orbit 3DM Content Manager resources can be imported and optimized.
  • The Named User that uploaded the resource becomes the Resource Owner. Once a resource is uploaded it is directly available in the 3DM Viewer and the access permission is set to 'Private'. The access is restricted to Resource Owner and higher ranked user roles (Resource Manager, Administrators, and Account Owner).
  • Resources can be shared with individual Users and Teams within the organization or with another organization.
  • My Catalog resources list the resources to which a Named User has a explicit permission.
  • Company Catalog resources are resources shared with the organization of a Named User.
