Welcome to Sketchfab For Science
Sketchfab recently announced that it has become an official partner of Microsoft HoloLens, along with other amazing organizations such as NASA, Disney, Unity and Autodesk. Once uploaded to Sketchfab, you can annotate and share 3D models interactively on Facebook and Twitter!
You can also view these structures in Virtual Realty using most VR headsets, including Microsoft Hololens, Oculus and Google Cardboard.
Given the importance of sharing biological discoveries, we are currently converting and uploading cryoEM & xray structures for sharing on social media. Likewise, we are developing methods for the rapid optimization and sharing of complex dynamic protein simulation data.
Some of the data we have uploaded and shared can be found below or by clicking on the menu links. If you need help converting or uploading your biological data to Sketchfab, please feel free to contact us!
Interactive Figure Legends
Using API scripts, it is possible to link the text of a figure to the viewer interactivity. As shown below, click on the highlighted text moves the camera to the indicated region of the molecule. You can also navigate to these regions using the left and right annotation arrows on the viewer. Online scientific journals will being using this technology in the very near future!
