If G is a 3d graphics object, then displaying it via G.show(viewer='threejs') the web browser allows to save the corresponding html code. However, for computing a large number of graphics on a server, it would be more convenient to save the html code directly. I would have expected something like 
G.save('name.html', viewer='threejs')
should work. However, it does not and I don't see if the intended task is implemented somehow.

Peter,

The ability to save directly to an HTML file as in the snippet you posted will be included in the upcoming 9.2 release. I had been wanting this feature myself, and implementing it made another change to the threejs viewer easier.

Cool! Can you say which ticket makes that possible?

It was implemented as part of #29194 (Three.js-based Animations).

Thanks! Could you contribute a list of exciting new things
in Sage graphics to the release tour for SageMath 9.2?

Hi,

There's a bug in 9.3, I don't know how to use Sage trac so I'm posting here.

When I use the save option I get an html with: 

<script src="/nbextensions/threejs/build/three.min.js"></script>                                                       

<script>                                                                                                               

  if ( !window.THREE ) document.write(' \                                                                              

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/sagemath/threejs-sage@122/build/three.min.js"><\/script> \                    

            ');                                                                                                        

</script>   

However from the tree.js example in the website I get: 

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/mrdoob/three.js@r110/build/three.min.js"></script>                            

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/mrdoob/three.js@r110/examples/js/controls/OrbitControls.js"></script>         

However, this is not quite right because it's an older version of mrdoob's version of three.js.

What works is: 

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/mrdoob/three.js@r117/build/three.min.js"></script>                            

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/mrdoob/three.js@r117/examples/js/controls/OrbitControls.js"></script>         


Now the link:

https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/sagemath/threejs-sage@122/build/three.min.js

is broken, so I think that's where the error started. A quick fix would be for someone with access to the sage user's CDN to merge the files three.min.js and OrbitControls.js and upload them to https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/sagemath/threejs-sage@122/build/three.min.js. A quick hack I know, but I'm not sure where it is in the source code to fix it and push a commit such that it's fixed in 9.4.

Best,

RJ Acuña
