Frequently Asked Questions

When will this change happen?

New versions of both Showcase and Workshop are available today. On July 1st, 2019 we will automatically update all your new and ongoing 3D Spaces to use the latest Showcase version.  Legacy Showcase and Legacy Workshop will be accessible until September 3rd, 2019. 


What will happen to my current 3D Spaces?

If you have previously switched from Showcase 2.0 (the old version) to Showcase 3.0 (the new version) then no change is necessary. If you haven't switched yet, starting July 1st, 2019 all created Spaces will come with the new version. Your existing Spaces will be updated on September 3rd, 2019 automatically. No action from you is necessary.


What actions do I need to take?

For most users, no action is necessary as the transition will be invisible and seamless.

For existing 3D Spaces, please double-check that customizations (like highlight reels) transfer over correctly in the new version. Adjust your customizations if necessary. Contact our customer support team if you have issues.


How do I access the edit mode (otherwise known as Workshop)?

Open and open a 3D Space. Check that you are an Admin, or that you have edit rights to this particular space. Click the Edit Space button to switch to editing mode.
