This tutorial explains how to create and restore snapshots reflecting the current state of the 3D space and the 3D view. A snapshot can be created, edited, restored or removed using the Snapshot tab of the tools of the user interface.


User Interface#

The snapshot button on the right side creates a snapshot of the current view.

This functionality is also available in the Snapshot tab located at the bottom of the screen. The button to create a new snapshot looks like this:


Once a snapshot is created, a new widget appears in the toolbox at the bottom showing a thumbnail of the view. Clicking on the close button in the top right corner will delete the snapshot.

Using the API#

To create snapshots with a script, please refer to the SessionStorageAPI.
