Walking around inside a 3D model made in FreeCAD

Postby invader » Sat Jan 19, 2019 10:40 am

I've modeled a house\apartment in FreeCAD. Now I want to walk inside the model just like in any FPS game by using e.g. a mouse and the W-A-S-D keys, with collision detection. Is there a way to accomplish this in FreeCAD? What software should I use to import the model into it and walk around inside the imported model?
Any ideas appreciated, thanks!

Reminds me of https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=31428
Haven't seen this done in FC yet.

You can export your model(s) to one of popular 3d game engine like "Unreal Engine" or "Unity 5". They have many manuals how to create simple project with walking and collision.

Game engine is a good idea. I've found this viewer https://castle-engine.io/view3dscene.php that allows you to walk around inside your model (e.g. STL file).
