Terma use Sketchfab as base of 3D Product Visualization since 2015

For years I use mostly all of the functionality which Sketchfab offers. It’s well developed with good documentation. It’s have good forum and support. So it’s good to work with it. The platform is complete so I save a lot of time to write own one and maintenance it. Here I created 3D Products Visualizators which allows you to see product in one of 250 colours. You can see it at sample arrangement, you can upload your photo to see radiator in your room or even you can make a photo on mobile device and see it there instantly with possibility of adjust and scale it. Also you can change background color, see products annotations, animation with it or even animated product or you can decide which part of it you would like to see. And at least you can see it in VR.

Pros

Terma for many years use high tech for products presentations. In 2009 we start using adobe flash to present our products in 3D 380’ with possibility to change their colors. In 2015 we discover Sketchfab platform as a place to visualize our products in 3D with highest quality on Internet without needs to use any additional plugins. For us the most important was that Sketchfab use PBR rendering, include VR and have API which allow us to create our 3D Product configurator. Today we have more than 180 products visualized in 3D based on Sketchfab platform which our customers very like.

Cons

For me as a programmer I miss the source code of platform to implement new ideas by myself.

3D Configurator - Increased Conversion Rate and Order Size - Dramatically

Pros

What I like most about the software was how easy it was for us to set up and the seamless customer experience the 3D configurator makes for our visitors. Our product has over 90 different variations that can make it difficult to shop for if they were all stand alone listings. With the configurator one can easily swithc between model, color and ring to personalize the unit quickly and efficiently! We saw immediate improvement in order size, color range, and conversion rate with the configurator, it also put us light years ahead of our competitors when it comes to user exierence.

Cons

3D modeling can be hard to capture the models texture but with enough patience and revisions we can get really close.

Reasons for Choosing Sketchfab

SketchFab was recomended to me by the Head of VR and AR at Shopify. I didn't need to look for other companies because the Shopify guys assured me they were best of the best, and they were right.

Deckers Brands SketchFab Review

Easy to use, easy to edit, easy to share, great quality results.

Pros

SketchFab makes it easy to upload, edit and share/embed 3D online. The visualization quality is world-class and offers VR and AR with no additional effort for the user after uploading 3D models.

Cons

SketchFab have a great color configurator and mp4/jpg generator, but it is unfortunately separate to the main SketchFab site. I would like to see these as part of the main tool. Additionally I would like to see improvements on organization capabilities of files, I work in fashion and so I need to organize files by brand, gender, category etc. Currently I can only create a folder to organize files, without ability to even have a sub-folder within that.

Reasons for Choosing Sketchfab

Embodee offers a lot more in the way of organization and color configurator, but was also overkill for our needs and more expensive than SketchFab.

Excellent tool to build powerful 3D configurators

We use Sketchfab as 3D engine allowing customers to define their features and accessories and to view every single detail before purchase.

Pros

The fact that it doesn’t require any plugins to run in the browser. It just works and can be easily embedded on the website. Plus, obviously, Sketchfab API that allowed us to create a very powerful and convincing product configurator.

Cons

Didn’t find a way to animate textures yet...

SketchFab Helped Increasing Our Web Leads

The 3D design tool we developed using Sketchfab libraries changed our business for good. We currently generate 1/3 of all our web leads though that 3D design tool. It also shortened our design process significantly.

Pros

It is fast and it works smoothly on almost all devices (minus some old operating systems and mobile devices).

Cons

It was cheaper when we first subscribed, but then they increased their pricing.

Sketchfab 3D Visualization: massive amount of resources and a sense of community

Overall it's provided a fantastic platform to share my creative ideas, and view/use others. Though the market varies drastically when it comes to quality and price, I can find anything I may be looking for, as well as share my own creations. It's great to receive and give feedback on creations. I would recommend this to those who want to share their work, or find a 3D model for whatever their need.

Pros

Offers a large variety of file types to upload and download 3D model files. Their model library is very vast, with multiple categories to find whatever model you're needing. Other then offering a market to sell and buy 3D models, it provides a community for creators and buyers to fallow creators and comment on others pieces. They do provide their service for free, although you do have the option to upgrade your account for added features that can be really useful if you are a creator.

Cons

A large percentage of their library are low quality 3D models, though some might not need a high quality model. Prices are subjective, so expect some models to be overpriced, though that can be expected when dealing with digital media.

User friendly 3D visualization tool

We're using Sketchfab for digitizing some internal meetings, reducing costs related to sales samples and others. However, I think that the potentials of this tool are still unexplored.

Pros

Extremely easy to use: no need for software downloads, no lisenses or credentials needed for the viewer, it works basically on every platform. The quality of the rendering is very good, especially if combined with a 3D generated from photogrammetry.

Cons

I would love to see it embedded in Powerpoint.

3D Tool

A great way to get a lot of great models but not super useful for my applications.

Pros

It has a huge selection of 3D models that you can use for a variety of things. I use them generally for engineering purposes.

Cons

Being an engineer, a lot of the models weren't useful for me. Most of the models are for AR, VR, videos, games, etc. Great program though.

Best platform to bring new interactive 3D experiences for your ecommerce and customer experience

Our Goal was to bring some deph and interactivity to our customers, gamers, who are used to interact with objects daily as part of their gaming experience. Being able to showcase our product in 3D and hide easter eggs for the teasing, and actual realistic interactive 3D objects on our ecommerce has been great and provided great engagement and feedback from both our community and business partners.

Pros

Powerful, full integration, easy to work with.

Cons

Sketchfab is simply the best 3D viewing experience for the web.
