3D dashboards on NodeRed

Hey. I am new to Node-Red and have been using it to make an electric bike dashboard and I wanted to know if there is any way to create 3D objects , backgrounds or units without using things like Babylon.js or the default dashboard 3D library (the one with set objects) or UI builder. open to suggestions !

I once created a flow that created a 3D representation of a flow. It uses babylon.js and is a complete experiment. I got it that far that I could move nodes in 3D and that was sync'ed back to the flow in 2D (and vice versa).

Nothing currently in UIBUILDER I'm afraid. And probably wouldn't be anything native there anyway. Sadly, I don't have the free time to devote to something like that.

However, if someone wanted to have a go, I'd happily help them. You could model something on the uib-select node to deliver a custom 3D environment.

Sounds creative and very cool implementation as well !

I would like to work on making a custom set of nodes which will help deploy a new 3D environment using previous models and stuff like blender models (STL or OBJ files) which is the ultimate goal.

I always wanted to take up a side-project and contribute to the community . Would be glad to take up the project and will do the initial stages and make a overview of the project as a whole !

Cool. If you want to discuss the basic framework, either PM me or we can start a discussion in the uibuilder repo.
