Explore The Crucible In 3D Detail Like Never Before
Cathy Niland | 04.27.2021
When was your last visit to The Crucible? For many of our community members, it’s been well over a year. But now you can step back into the studio from the comfort of your couch.
With help from Idea Builder Labs and Matterport, we now have a comprehensive 3D tour of The Crucible. You can step into any of our 19 departments and practically reach out and touch our equipment. It’s a great opportunity to see our newly revamped studios, including Woodworking, ARC Welding, and our Bike Shop.
Here are some tips on how to tour The Crucible in 3D
- In the bottom left corner, you can select the dollhouse view or the floor plan to get a wider picture of the space. Click anywhere to be transported.
- Click, hold, and drag your mouse to view in any direction from your current position. If you want to move to a new location you can click anywhere in your current view and you will move toward that location.
- Feel free to zoom in and out to get a closer look at, well, anything!
- Curious just how big our Smithy is? You can click the measurement tool and follow the onscreen instructions to measure the distance between any two points.
- Don’t miss our studios on the second floor – Ceramics, Kinetics & Electronics, Glass Fusing & Slumping, Neon & Light, Leather
Textiles, & Fine Art, Moldmaking, and Fire & Performance. The floor selector button can be found in the bottom left corner.
If you had fun on your virtual Crucible tour you can share this space with others using the Share Space button in the bottom right corner.
