Scene API#

class viser.SceneApi[source]#

Interface for adding 3D primitives to the scene.

Used by both our global server object, for sharing the same GUI elements with all clients, and by invidividual client handles.

world_axes: FrameHandle#

Handle for the world axes, which are created by default.

set_up_direction(direction: Literal[‘+x’, ‘+y’, ‘+z’, ‘-x’, ‘-y’, ‘-z’] | tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray) None[source]#

Set the global up direction of the scene. By default we follow +Z-up (similar to Blender, 3DS Max, ROS, etc), the most common alternative is +Y (OpenGL, Maya, etc).

Parameters:

direction (Literal[‘+x’, ‘+y’, ‘+z’, ‘-x’, ‘-y’, ‘-z’] | tuple[float, float, float] | ~numpy.ndarray) – New up direction. Can either be a string (one of +x, +y, +z, -x, -y, -z) or a length-3 direction vector.

Return type:

None

set_global_visibility(visible: bool) None[source]#

Set visibility for all scene nodes. If set to False, all scene nodes will be hidden.

This can be useful when we’ve called SceneApi.set_background_image(), and want to hide everything except for the background.

Parameters:

visible (bool) – Whether or not all scene nodes should be visible.

Return type:

None

add_glb(name: str, glb_data: bytes, scale=1.0, wxyz: tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray = (1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0), position: tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray = (0.0, 0.0, 0.0), visible: bool = True) GlbHandle[source]#

Add a general 3D asset via binary glTF (GLB).

For glTF files, it’s often simpler to use trimesh.load() with .add_mesh_trimesh(). This will call .add_glb() under the hood.

For glTF features not supported by trimesh, glTF to GLB conversion can also be done programatically with libraries like pygltflib.

Parameters:
  • name (str) – A scene tree name. Names in the format of /parent/child can be used to define a kinematic tree.

  • glb_data (bytes) – A binary payload.

  • scale – A scale for resizing the GLB asset.

  • wxyz (tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray) – Quaternion rotation to parent frame from local frame (R_pl).

  • position (tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray) – Translation to parent frame from local frame (t_pl).

  • visible (bool) – Whether or not this scene node is initially visible.

Returns:

This method adds a frustum representation, typically used to visualize the field of view of a camera. It’s helpful for understanding the perspective and coverage of a camera in the 3D space.

Like all cameras in the viser Python API, frustums follow the OpenCV [+Z forward, +X right, +Y down] convention. fov is vertical in radians; aspect is width over height

Parameters:

  • fov (float) – Field of view of the camera (in radians).

  • aspect (float) – Aspect ratio of the camera (width over height).

add_frame(name: str, show_axes: bool = True, axes_length: float = 0.5, axes_radius: float = 0.025, origin_radius: float | None = None, wxyz: tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray = (1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0), position: tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray = (0.0, 0.0, 0.0), visible: bool = True) FrameHandle[source]#

Add a coordinate frame to the scene.

This method is used for adding a visual representation of a coordinate frame, which can help in understanding the orientation and position of objects in 3D space.

For cases where we want to visualize many coordinate frames, like trajectories containing thousands or tens of thousands of frames, batching and calling add_batched_axes() may be a better choice than calling add_frame() in a loop.

Parameters:
  • name (str) – A scene tree name. Names in the format of /parent/child can be used to define a kinematic tree.

  • show_axes (bool) – Boolean to indicate whether to show the frame as a set of axes + origin sphere.

  • axes_length (float) – Length of each axis.

  • axes_radius (float) – Radius of each axis.

  • origin_radius (float | None) – Radius of the origin sphere. If not set, defaults to 2 * axes_radius.

  • wxyz (tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray) – Quaternion rotation to parent frame from local frame (R_pl).

  • position (tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray) – Translation to parent frame from local frame (t_pl).

Return type:

add_batched_axes(name: str, batched_wxyzs: tuple[tuple[float, float, float, float], ] | ndarray, batched_positions: tuple[tuple[float, float, float], ] | ndarray, axes_length: float = 0.5, axes_radius: float = 0.025, wxyz: tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray = (1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0), position: tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray = (0.0, 0.0, 0.0), visible: bool = True) BatchedAxesHandle[source]#

Visualize batched sets of coordinate frame axes.

The functionality of add_batched_axes() overlaps significantly with add_frame() when show_axes=True. The primary difference is that add_batched_axes() supports multiple axes via the wxyzs_batched (shape Nx4) and positions_batched (shape Nx3) arguments.

Axes that are batched and rendered via a single call to add_batched_axes() are instanced on the client; this will be much faster to render than add_frame() called in a loop.

Parameters:
  • name (str) – A scene tree name. Names in the format of /parent/child can be used to define a kinematic tree.

  • batched_wxyzs (tuple[tuple[float, float, float, float], ] | ndarray) – Float array of shape (N,4).

  • batched_positions (tuple[tuple[float, float, float], ] | ndarray) – Float array of shape (N,3).

  • axes_length (float) – Length of each axis.

  • axes_radius (float) – Radius of each axis.

  • wxyz (tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray) – Quaternion rotation to parent frame from local frame (R_pl). This will be applied to all axes.

  • position (tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray) – Translation to parent frame from local frame (t_pl). This will be applied to all axes.

Returns:

Handle for manipulating scene node.

  • active_axes (tuple[bool, bool, bool]) – tuple of booleans indicating active axes.

  • disable_axes (bool) – Boolean to disable axes interaction.

  • disable_sliders (bool) – Boolean to disable slider interaction.

  • disable_rotations (bool) – Boolean to disable rotation interaction.

  • translation_limits (tuple[tuple[float, float], tuple[float, float], tuple[float, float]]) – Limits for translation.

  • rotation_limits (tuple[tuple[float, float], tuple[float, float], tuple[float, float]]) – Limits for rotation.

  • depth_test (bool) – Boolean indicating if depth testing should be used when rendering.

  • opacity (float) – Opacity of the gizmo.

  • wxyz (tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray) – Quaternion rotation to parent frame from local frame (R_pl).

  • position (tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray) – Translation from parent frame to local frame (t_pl).

  • visible (bool) – Whether or not this gizmo is initially visible.

Returns:

Handle for manipulating (and reading state of) scene node.

Return type:

TransformControlsHandle

reset() None[source]#

Reset the scene.

Return type:

None

on_pointer_event(event_type: Literal[‘click’, ‘rect-select’]) Callable[[Callable[[ScenePointerEvent], None]], Callable[[ScenePointerEvent], None]][source]#

Add a callback for scene pointer events.

Parameters:

event_type (Literal[‘click’, ‘rect-select’]) – event to listen to.

Return type:

Callable[[Callable[[ScenePointerEvent], None]], Callable[[ScenePointerEvent], None]]

on_pointer_callback_removed(func: Callable[[], None]) Callable[[], None][source]#

Add a callback to run automatically when the callback for a scene pointer event is removed. This will be triggered exactly once, either manually (via remove_pointer_callback()) or automatically (if the scene pointer event is overridden with another call to on_pointer_event()).

Parameters:

func (Callable[[], None]) – Callback for when scene pointer events are removed.

Return type:

Callable[[], None]

remove_pointer_callback() None[source]#

Remove the currently attached scene pointer event. This will trigger any callback attached to .on_scene_pointer_removed().

Return type:

None

add_3d_gui_container(name: str, wxyz: tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray = (1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0), position: tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray = (0.0, 0.0, 0.0), visible: bool = True) Gui3dContainerHandle[source]#

Add a 3D gui container to the scene. The returned container handle can be used as a context to place GUI elements into the 3D scene.

Parameters:
  • name (str) – A scene tree name. Names in the format of /parent/child can be used to define a kinematic tree.

  • wxyz (tuple[float, float, float, float] | ndarray) – Quaternion rotation to parent frame from local frame (R_pl).

  • position (tuple[float, float, float] | ndarray) – Translation to parent frame from local frame (t_pl).

  • visible (bool) – Whether or not this scene node is initially visible.

Returns:

Handle for manipulating scene node. Can be used as a context to place GUI elements inside of the container.

Return type:

Gui3dContainerHandle
