Mattercraft and its documentation are currently in open beta. We are diligently working on comprehensive documentation, which will be continuously iterated on in the coming months.
Mattercraft is a fully integrated, browser based 3D content development environment perfected for building interactive experiences for the web. Mattercraft's intuitive 3D editor lets you create web experiences visually, while leveraging the best features the web has to offer.
As Mattercraft is a browser based tool with no software download required, you may need to register for a Zapworks account if you have not already.
Creating a new Mattercraft project
There is more than one way to create a new Mattercraft project, which makes for seamless integration of Mattercraft into your existing workflow.
The Zapworks CMS
To start creating with Mattercraft, you will need to create a new Mattercraft project type on your workspace.

Now that you're all set up, you can start developing and exploring the various features and functionality offered by Mattercraft:
