Best way for customers to view the file940

Biggles private msg quote post Address this user
I have now completed a number of scans and find when I open the model it often goes straight to a blank wall, which is not very exciting for the viewer.
Is there a way of nominating where the viewing starts? Maybe looking along the entry hall with your back to the front door.
Or maybe a view of the dollhouse?
I expect I have missed something simple in the instructions.

I've included a sample scan, the view starts looking out the front bedroom window - clickable text

Change the start location in the workshop section
Do you know how to do this?

@Biggles As @Jamie said, it's the first option in Showcase 2.0.

It will ask you to navigate to your desired start position and then click the "update start location" button.

Alternatively you can take a capture shot and then when you go to the snapshots section in showcase and click on a screen capture there is a toggle bar to "set as start location".

Thanks guys, I started searching and found the workshop. To date I had avoided the workshop and showcase areas of the web site, I hadn't yet explored them. I have set the starting image and it seems to be exactly what I need. I'll have more of a play when I return (I'm off to do four more scans!).
