Giving customers an immersive and interactive experience can be a game changer in your e-commerce. One way to do that is by implementing new technology in it. And one method to do this is to create 3D virtual objects for your products.

This allows customers to view the product from various perspectives, explore its features, and make a more informed purchase decision. This article will cover how to create 3D objects for your e-commerce, their benefits, and where to use them.

How can you create a 3D object?

There are different methods to create a virtual 3D product, and if you are interested in knowing more about them, you can see this article. Meanwhile, we can see how you can create your 3D product alone (almost).

  • Choose the Object: Let’s start simple. Choose the first product that you want to render. For example, a piece of jewelry, a shoe, or a bag could make excellent 3D objects.
  • Choose the right app. What do we mean? Some applications allow you to create 3D objects by taking photos or videos. Two of these apps are Polycam and Luma AI. These apps use Artificial Intelligence to create the object.
  • Take Photos or a Video: After setting up your space, take pictures or videos of the object from various angles. The app you chose will render the images and create the 3D object for you. It would be best if you used a high-quality smartphone camera and lighting setup to achieve the best results.
  • Use Software: if the 3D product doesn’t come as you wish, edit the 3D model. How? You can edit your 3D object using Blender, Autodesk, or SketchUp. Of course, this requires you to have a few skills in it. Elsewhere you can hire a freelancer that does this for you.

In the beginning, it could seem complex, but don’t worry. Once you start, it’s elementary and will require patience. In the end, you are wondering, why should I do that? What are the benefits?

Let’s explore them.
