Can I display a webpage in a 3DS Max viewport?
Posted on 2008-11-12
It's been a long time since I've been on E-E, but the knowledge pool, although sometimes cold and wet, has never let me down.
I'm teaching 3DS Max at IADT in Orlando, and I have designed an interactive tutorial system using simple HTML for my students to use. I also work with Pro/E which has a browser viewer internal to the software. That's the interface for opening/managing files.
Is it possible to load an html page in a 3DS Max viewport, similar to the way a Schematic Diagram or Curve Editor can be loaded. It would be worth the effort for me to make this possible, because the html tutorials could then be redesigned to fit in the window. Students would no longer need to ALT-TAB between 3DS Max and the Web Browser. (I'm working on the school officials to get us dual-monitors, but it seems like it would be easier to reprogram 3DS Max from scratch than to get money from the school for hardware.)
Thanks in advance!
