Hi guys,

Sorry but, trying several options, i have to admit that the 3D visualisation does'nt work on my machine (win 7 - 64 bits). I looked for various ways (opening the html file included) but it still does'nt appear...

Doe anyone has an idea, please?

Are you talking about the view model measure or something else?

Well in fact, this OS measure (View model) doesn't give me visual result either.

But i was speeking about the BCP measure "View data".

I think that both of them are working (generating files), but i can't see the results...

Does the measure run? Does it issue any errors or warnings? If it does run, can you go into the run directory and find a report.html file? What happens if you open that file in a web browser like Firefox or Chrome?

Yes the measure runs, and i tried to open the file with my web browser but i don't see anything...

Hmm can you post a link to your html file?

report.jpg Hi,

Thanks for your response, and sorry, i was without computer yesterday.

The server just let me send images files, so i just changed the extension of the report file (changing jpg por html should work).

Thanks again.

Thanks for the file, this seems to work for me in Firefox and Chrome. What browser are you using?

Just tried in Internet Explorer 11 and I see the model but the navigation bar is missing, is that what you are seeing?

macumber's avatar macumber  ( 2015-10-16 13:28:37 -0500 )edit

i tried with firefox and chrome (iron)... Also tried with opera, and right now with internet explorer.

nothing seems to appear, but looks likes loading something. But next the page stay in blank.

That is odd. Can you try opening the JavaScript console in your browser and then loading the page? Do you see any errors in the console?

In my chrome browser, i get this: THREE.WebGLRenderer 71 three.min.js:2 THREE.WebGLRenderer: Error creating WebGL context.THREE.error @ three.min.js:2 three.min.js:527 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'getShaderPrecisionFormat' of null
