2021.1.0 - January 6, 2021


Preview, Admin-FTS


Improved Player Loading experience is here: the Threekit player now displays an image snapshot of the product and loads the 3D visualization in the background. This means that Shoppers will see product visuals sooner and will not feel like they’re waiting as long.

The snapshot will use the active camera and configuration to match the 3D visual experience so that it’s seamless. Snapshots are generated if one doesn’t exist when the player loads. Snapshots are regenerated when an Asset is updated.

Note: if a Catalog Item's referenced Asset is updated, the Catalog Item will need to be resaved to generate an updated snapshot.

It is turned on for all users within the Threekit platform and has to be enabled where the player is used externally using the following parameter:

showLoadingThumbnail: true   



Catalog Item thumbnails have been added to the Catalog Item listing page to match the Asset listing page. Now you can see what the Item is before clicking it.

These are generated the same way Asset thumbnails are generated: when you view a Catalog Item if a thumbnail doesn’t exist, Threekit generates it. If the underlying visual asset has been updated, Threekit will regenerate the thumbnail.


Asset prefetching optimization will result in faster loading times for 3D visualizations that have a lot of dependent requests by requesting multiple assets at once, caching their responses, and process additional responses and adding them to the cache. Performance improvements depend on the number of requests and can range in improvements of a couple of seconds to tens of seconds.
