Improve 3D preview system

As a Roblox user, it is currently too hard to preview more advanced items in 3D such as items with particles / sparkles etc. using 3D catalog view.

If Roblox is able to address your issue, how would it improve your game and/or your development experience? Please be as specific as possible.
It would improve user’s experience in previewing 3D items.

Examples of items:

Black Iron Katana

EDIT: Same thing is in the avatar editor 3D preview.

So you’re asking for them to emulate their particle system in three.js?
I’m sure it can be done, but I don’t know if their 3D thumbnail system actually provides that much information.


Much needed. I hope that it would solve this issue as well

Not sure how, but I think something similiar to RBXleakes’ 3D viewer.


Yes, I am. I also think that it’s possible to provide it more informations about particles etc.

I have got a hold of the code behind RBXleaks’ 3D viewer, courtesy of Jefemy. Here are the links to the 3D previewer code and it’s animation code, in that respective order.

I hope it helps and gets implemented
