In this live workshop, we showcased new immersive 3D experiences that can leverage the new capability to hide navigation controls. With this setting you can have many steps that will remain hidden from viewers, unless they click on a button or object that goes to that step.
This unlocks 3D content ranging from quizzes and assessment paths, clickable product demos, and 3D configurators.

Introduction and overview
Sam Granleese: Thank you to everyone who has joined us and hello to those watching this on replay in the future. My name is Sam, and I'm the head of product at JigSpace. Thank you for joining this webinar on unskippable 3D, where you can learn how to elevate training and other content with interactive 3D and AR experiences.
We're excited to show you some new features, best practices, and news on Vision Pro for next year. Joining us today are Laura Hales, one of our leading 3D artists at JigSpace, and Maddie Clunes-Ross our head of customer success.
In today's session, we'll discuss the current limitations with steps in the jig format, what we're doing about it, and how you can use these new features. Laura will give a live demo, followed by a quick recap and a preview on Vision Pro. Feel free to ask questions throughout the webinar. We'll answer them in context or hold them for the Q&A section at the end. Without further ado, let's start by talking about the current limitations and new use cases we're unlocking.
Past limitations of steps
Maddie Clunes-Ross: Hi, everyone. Thank you for joining us. As you might know, our jig format has always provided immersive 3D step-by-step presentations. However, our customer feedback highlighted a growing need for enhanced interactivity.
We identified distinct use cases our customers aimed to achieve, including clickable demos, enhanced content engagement, interactive quizzes, dynamic presentation styles, and looping animations for marketing or website integration. These diverse needs can be met with our latest release, interactive navigation, which allows customers to hide the UI of their jigs and enable actions or autoplay. I'll now hand over to Laura for the live demo.
Live demo of interactive navigation
Laura Hales: Thanks, Maddie. I'll start by showing one of our generic sales jigs. Typically, you navigate through a jig like a PowerPoint presentation, but with the introduction of actions, we've added interactive elements. For instance, if I click on any of these image cards, like the cabin detailing, you can see that I'm able to step through this jig in a customized journey, choosing how to experience it.
In cases like training LMSs, it's essential for users to interact with the content. I'll be demonstrating this using a sample jig that focuses on the safe operation of a forklift. Adding interactive actions within a jig is straightforward. In the jig workshop, a 3D space where we create our jigs, I'll show you how to apply actions and how to remove the UI. It's crucial to apply actions before making your jig live to ensure users can progress through the content.
We've recently introduced a range of buttons as 3D objects into the free workshop, which you can use in your jigs. Today, I'm using a true and false button to create an interactive question within the jig. I've set up two steps: one showing the incorrect operation of the forklift and the other showing the correct operation. By applying actions to these buttons, users are directed to the corresponding step, indicating the right and wrong answers.
It's also possible to embed web links within a jig, allowing for a seamless integration of sales, marketing, or educational content. This functionality enhances the interactivity of the jigs, making them more engaging and informative.
In summary, the new features we've introduced, like interactive actions and the ability to hide UI elements, significantly enhance the versatility and effectiveness of jigs in various applications, from training to marketing.
How to hide viewer controls
Sam Granleese: Thanks, Laura. That was an excellent example. To utilize interactive navigation or unskippable 3D, add actions to objects within your jig presentations, using new buttons from our free library or applying actions directly to your 3D model. Then, use the hide step controls feature in the gig info panel.
It's important to decide early on how you want your viewers to experience the content, as this will influence your design choices. We're nearing the end of the year, so let's preview what this means for JigsSpace next year.
Apple Vision Pro on JigSpace in 2024
We're focusing on interactive navigation inside jigs in spatial computing and augmented reality, ensuring your current content is compatible with future technologies like visionOS. Being able to navigate contextually by double-tapping on objects in spatial environments, rather than traditional fixed menus, will be critical on the visionOS. Fortunately any interactive actions you add today to your 3D content in JigSpace will work on the Vision Pro when it is available in 2024.
Also on our current development roadmap we are enhancing enterprise customer support, including multi-user editing and admin capabilities. If you're interested in more personalized demonstrations or industry-specific walkthroughs of Vision Pro, please get in touch.
Question and Answers
Maddie Clunes-Ross: A European customer asked via email whether you can embed unskippable 3D jigs into LMS platforms. The answer is yes; jigs can be embedded in any LMS that supports iFrame embed codes. In the jig workshop, go to the share panel, copy the embed code, and paste it into the HTML frame embed section within your LMS. This is a great way to centralize resources for training and education.
Sam Granleese: Great question. If there are no further questions, feel free to get in touch with us for more specific queries.
We're excited about the upcoming developments and hope to see you in our future webinars. Thank you for joining us today, and have a happy holiday.
