No PW plugin there...but some frontendstuff that could may be usefull:

http://www.ajax-zoom.com/index.php?cid=examples&lang=en

I doubt that there we be an opensource solution for such a complex ajax thingi that is mostly used in $hops there will be money to pay...

Best regards mr-fan

This is a tricky one, and the solution on the CMS side depends on how you want to do the frontend.

You will not find a module that gets interactive 3d working on your frontend. PW modules mostly offer you ways of storing and retrieving info, but don't actually generate frontend widgets like slideshows and that kind of thing.

First of all, the repeater is a go to module that you'll probably need somewhere along the road. Then just remember you can use file fields for storing 3d models or even JS that you load dynamically on the frontend, image fields for textures, and you have other field types for just about anything you can think of.

For example, look at the nib selector on step 3 of your example. You can use a repeater to store each nib. Inside each repeater item you put in a title, an image file for the thumbnail, and a file field for the 3d model in whatever format you're going to use. Then you just have to figure out how to output that in your frontend so that the nib options can be managed from the CMS.

Start by getting your frontend working statically. From there you'll see how to divide it into smaller chunks that can be served by PW and take it from there.

      Hi Guys
      It would be awesome when all the resource about processwire (tutorials, docs, cheatsheet, recipes, videos, api, faq etc...) would be unified on one documentation website called "docs.processwire.com".
      The new site would gather infos & data from these resources:
      https://processwire-recipes.com/ http://processwire.tv/ https://www.pwtuts.com/ https://processwire.com/docs/ http://cheatsheet.processwire.com/ and would unified it on the final site https://docs.processwire.com.
      I think It is far more better to have one endpoint for all the processwire resources & wisdom then mutliple sites. This way it is far more easier to get into the processwire world and choosing processwire as the next main cms for further projects.
       
      The Documentation Site could perhaps look like this (it is just a mockup, so don't expect to much from me ):

      Hi Guys,
      Just finished a website locally and wanted to upload it on the webserver of my customer. I got a server 500 error. Now, the guidelines of the hoster (world4you.com) does not allow "Options" in the htaccess-file. So, when I uncomment these:
      Options -Indexes
      Options +FollowSymLinks
      the site is visible, but the content won't show and no links are available. Not sure if I need the Symlinks-part but I guess I need a workaround for the Index-part. Can anybody help here? I need the website up and running asap....
      Thanks!
