Save 3D object to library

Save 3D object to library

You can save a 3D object to your team library in the JigSpace app, or account dashboard. Library objects can be created from:

  • CAD files that you upload and enrich
  • Free 3D objects in the free library that you edit or modify in a Jig.
Click Save 3D Object adds to library what you select in object mode

Saving to the library

To save a 3D object to your library, follow these steps in the workshop.

  1. Ensure your whole object is selected and in 'Object Mode' {icon-object-mode.svg} in the workshop.
  2. Tap on the + and Save 3D object’.
  3. Give your object a name, and reposition the thumbnail model to your desired angle.
  4. Save.
Add a thumbnail and name when you Save 3D Object to your library

Replace existing objects

If you are using an existing 3D object from your library and have further edited it, you can choose to save a copy as a new file, or replace the existing one.

  • Save a copy - will add an additional 3D object to your team library
  • Replace - will replace the 3D object your current 3D object is based on. Only do this if you are sure.


Make object variants

Using the ‘Save a copy’ method above, you can quickly create a library of visually distinct objects from the same core CAD files. Common variations in product libraries we see include:

  • Minor 3D sub-object or assembly part variations.
  • Material finish variants (chrome, steel, plastics, etc)
  • Color variations
  • Attachment, size or scale differences
  • Language or geographic localization in text labels.
  • Animation speed or direction differences.
Making 3D models with color variation and save to library in JigSpace

Create a ‘base model’ first, then save it to your library. You can then add this model to a Jig, update some details like different label text, colors, move, or change sub-object parts, then save a copy to library when you click 'Save 3D object'.

Pro tip:  When saving a copy like this to make variants, remember to:

  • Save a copy
  • Name your objects consistently
  • Update thumbnails to visually represent the object.


Bulk upload CAD files

If you have a large number of CAD files you wish to load into your team library, you can also do this via the library in the web-based account dashboard.
