Web browsers update their code frequently, which affects the brand new technology of 3D websites. A2Z Smart Group LLC works hard to make changes as needed to accomodate these updates, but if you log in and find yourself having issues, try the other browser.
Odds are, your first choice updated overnight and our developers are on the job making adjustments.
CHECK YOUR HARDWARE ACCELERATION SETTINGS If you are having trouble with movement, please check your Hardware Acceleration Settings. In Chrome:
1. Put this in your URL Bar: chrome://settings/
2. Scroll down and open the Advanced Settings
3. Scroll down to System section. Turn Hardware Acceleration ON.
The two browsers leading the way for compatibility with 3D Websites and Virtual Worlds in a Browser are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
3DWebWorldz.com is a virtual world in a browser (social environment with communication tools).
3DPortals.com is a 3D Website World. You still get the 3d Environment, but it is a solo experience without any interaction with others.

We are currently working with teachers to get a set class schedule.
For now, check out our self-learning environments.
If you have an idea for a self-learning environment that you would like to see in our school, contact us at our HELPDESK.
We are currently signing up teachers to beta test our classroom environments.
There are a variety of teacher tools available to you, including your own classroom, private voice channel, whiteboard, chalkboard, etc. You can even use our advanced tools set to access video chat if needed.
If you have a curriculum you have written, we will help you set up your classroom in 3D fashion.
If you are interested, please contact us at our HELPDESK
Technically speaking, 3DWebWorldz is a 3DWebsite; however, many of our regions and projects are also Virtual Worlds in a Web Browser.
This is different from a "Classic Virtual World" as we know it because there is no need to download any additional software...BUT, you do need a decent internet speed and graphics card for a smooth experience.
We also recommend an up-to-date Chrome or Firefox Browser.
If you want to take the experience further and enter a classic virtual world, check out our Virtual World Education region. We'll teach you how to visit our mirror worlds on OpenSim.Life
YES! We would love your help.
Builders and testers and think-tankers, oh my! Get in touch with us and let us know how you would like to be involved.

It is your "focus point".
Use your mouse and navigation keys to focus the circle over items to interact with them.
To access elevator controls, hover your red focus circle over the elevator buttons. You will either immediately transport or be asked to confirm your teleport choice.
There are three types of doors:
1. Doors that open when you focus on them. (Many require focus point on the door handles.)
2. Doors that are locked and prevent your entrance or exit.
3. Collision doors that will teleport you to the next room. Collision doors are most often found as a double door set. Open the first set of doors by focusing on them and then run into the set behind them.
Right now we are searching for artists that wish to share their work. 3D Websites are brand new. Be one of the first to have a gallery, not only in our 3DWebWorldz, but embedded in your own website.
For more information, please contact our HELPDESK.
A LEGACY GALLERY is a collection of works that have been sold or are no longer available for purchase. It allows artists to show their work in a gallery setting, even though the actual physical collection may be spread over thousands of miles.
Have a collection of your own that is only available via digital photographs? We can help you turn them into a 3D Art Gallery Experience. Receive exposure through 3DWebWorldz.com, MyArtGallery3d.com AND get a 3D Art Gallery of your own to embed in your own website.
Contact our HELPDESK for more information.
A MEMORIAL GALLERY is a great way to share the works of a loved one that is no longer with us.
If you would like to pay tribute to an artist by helping their work live on, we would like to help you do just that.
We will help you transform your photographs into a unique gallery experience. Contact our Helpdesk for more information.
You must be logged into 3DWebWorldz.com system (as a guest or user) to participate in the concerts -- it's a technical thing, BUT it's easy.

Every region is on it's own "channel".
If you are having issues with voice, first make sure you are all on the same channel. Your current voice channel is listed above the MUTE/UNMUTE option.
Channels are created for each region. If you are in the wrong channel, the following actions will fix the issue:
a) reload the world (Menu Info button / Reload the World);
b) reload the browser,
c) log out and log back in.
If you have confirmed you are all on the same channel, try the RELOAD VOICE CHANNEL button.
