Today we launched a new feature here on Torhead, our SWTOR Model Viewer is now available and can be viewed on any weapon page!

Here's a couple to check out: Modified DTB-27 Bolt Pistol, Centurion Enforcer's Sniper Rifle, The Debilitator, The Heart of Ragnos and Prototype N-30 Battle Techblade

I'm curious about how you got the 3D models. Did you get it by reverse-engineering the data files of the game?

This is so cool! So far it has worked for every weapon i have tried it on too :D So nice since the game doesn't have a ctrl+left click feature for weapons atm.

I love you guys for this! Thanks so much. Not so useful for lightsabers, but sooo useful for guns :)

Will armour eventually be added to this feature?

Hopefully, soon you'll have the 3D character viewer a la wowhead.

I hope you guys add this feature to armor soon! Would love to preview items that I don't have before buying/farming them.

Thank you so much for your hard work :D

Brilliant folks, ty muchly - looking forward to the armor too, but the weapon looks were definitely the most lacking info considering not even the game models them! oO

Keep up the great work.

Well most of the time the Weapon model matches the Icon. But I love the Model feature here you can get a closer look.

Extremely useful for blaster weapons. Can't wait to see armor too. Though at least everything matches it's icon, it's hard to see details or to imagine what it would look like on a female/male body. Great job.

Wahhh many many thanks <3

Awesome, Torhead team. Looking fantastic and highly useful, especially since you can't preview weapons in game. I'm glad you guys are committing to the game, when the drop tables are included so we can browse items and find their sources, you shall fulfill your destiny, and we will rule the galaxy as user and website!

Awesome! How did you make this 3D model viewer?
By trojahn at 2012-03-19 07:16:06
Great work as usual... Gratz!
By wowskyguy at 2012-03-20 18:50:31

Do you guys plan on doing that for spaceships and vehicles?

A few of these models are incorrect compared to ingame... the models here just match the icon, but ingame items frequently are entirely different to the icon.
By fewyn at 2012-03-21 16:42:47
@Roulk, can you be more specific and give us examples?
By infuron at 2012-03-31 23:39:56
so ya how do you use the 3d viewer?
By infuron at 2012-04-01 17:47:25
im sorry to bother you but how does this feature work?
By Kobayashi555 at 2012-04-06 12:44:55
Click the "View in 3D" link off to the right side of the item name (over next to the Quick Facts section).
By Kolreth at 2012-04-09 00:46:31
Is there a way to toggle between the republic models and empire ones? Common items have a different look on each side, and currently it only shows empire models.
By chronium at 2012-04-10 18:43:12
When will it be applied to the more important items, Armour.
By eberkain at 2012-04-11 16:34:18
I have not noticed an item that did not match its icon in-game, and I've also not seen the same item that had different appearances on either faction. Specific examples would be nice for those reporting such.
By eberkain at 2012-04-18 14:23:27

Here is a good test case, you can see the screenshot is what it looks like in-game, but that is not what the 3d preview looks like on the site.

feature disabled?

What happened to the model viewer? Has it been disabled?
By TheGeorgelegacy at 2013-11-03 12:24:53
How exactly do I use the model viewer? can't find the button anywhere...
By Calthine at 2013-11-19 19:03:21
Hm. Something seems to be wrong.
By Calthine at 2013-11-20 20:13:33
We have a fix coming Very Soon for the model viewer. Sorry about that.
