3d modelle 360 produktvisualisierung

In product viewers of online shops and product configurators, photorealistic 3D renderings have become indispensable! 

A product viewer is a simple, interactive and easy-to-use application that lets products spin around their own axis. If a product consists of several components and variations, the variety of variations can be defined via a configurator and the variants displayed graphically.

To create a 360 ° panorama of a product, multiple renderings are generated from different camera angles. In order for the product in the presentation to be "round" when turning, at least 12 renderings should be produced per product, which are arranged side by side, as it were. Ideally, you use 24 renderings, so that the rotation runs smoothly, without stattering.

With a zoom-in function, details can be viewed up close. The application can be operated on mobile devices by a swipe with your finger. 

Potential Constraints on Product Configurator Use

Depending on the product and its versatility, the number of renderings required per product can skyrocket and push a simple product configurator to its limits. There are few, professionally designed configurations that manage the amount of data. We work with such configurators, please contact us if you are interested. 

3D models for real-time applications in configurators 

Of course you can also work directly with a 3D model in configurators. Similar to the product viewer, the chaff quickly separates from the wheat when it comes to software for real-time 3D applications. We work very closely with software specialists for configurators, so that we will definitely find the right configurator for your product. 

In the real-time application, it is essential to pay attention to the data volume per model. The model should look very good, that is as photorealistic as possible, but should not contain too many polygons, so that it is not too large for the application and therefore too slow.

The difference between high and low poly 3D models, we have created here in the blog another contribution to your information.
