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...
