What is Quick Start?

What is quick start?

Quick start lets you open a model in 3D Showcase almost immediately (up to three times faster than before).

How do I enable quick start?

Quick start is disabled by default.

To enable it add the URL parameter &qs=1 to the end of any shared or embedded link.

Should I use quick start?

Visitors to your 3D model will have a different experience depending on whether you enable or disable quick start. While loading time is important it is just one part of the user experience in 3D Showcase. 


  • Quickly engage customers who are sensitive to load time
  • Loads large models significantly quicker

Potential Drawbacks

  • Initial Dollhouse and fly-in to Inside View (a potential "wow" factor) no longer present -- sacrificed for faster loading
  • Possible that the Matterport model can appear like a static photo and not something interactive
  • Help menu will not display - users can call it from the footer
