Dear Jamal,

for more information on using CityEngine to create Web Scenes, please refer the following tutorial:

Interesting.  For my CityEngine workflow I routinely create scenes that are too large for ArcGIS Online (upwards of 100 mb) and I've been patiently waiting for the ability to publish to ArcServer (I have acces to ArcServer but not Portal which is currently mandatory for web scene publishing).  I know this is on the roadmap for CityEngine this year but does anyone know if I could download the web scene viewer and then host large scenes on my own server.  The bottom of the download link mentioned above makes it seem possible.  Has anyone else tried this?

**********************************************************

Use CityEngine Web Viewer application on custom web server

**********************************************************

1. download webviewer package from ArcGIS online

http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=38fede3935a440e49cf316dcae6aae47

*  Open -> download

2. Unzip downloaded package into the web server's document root (or into a subfolder)

3. delete ceviewer.html

4. rename ceviewer_offline.html to viewer.html

5. parallel to the folder webviewer/, create a folder webscenes/

6. place your web scene(s) (.3ws files) in folder webscenes/

7. access Web Scenes in two ways:

  a) reference the webscene with url parameter: http://SERVER.DOMAIN/PATH/TO/WEBVIEWER/viewer.html?3dWebScene=../webscenes/NAME_OF_WEBSCENE.3ws

  b) open the viewer with no parameters, and drag a local 3ws file onto it: http://SERVER.DOMAIN/PATH/TO/WEBVIEWER/viewer.html

Notes:

* For IIS server, .3ws extension needs to be added as MIME type. See http://bit.ly/V8Ftdi

Yes it is possible! I've been hosting lots of webscenes on IIS, and also on a "LAMP" server. I have however never tried webscenes of 100mb+ size but as long as you can store it, and the browser / viewer can handle it, I think it is possible.
