Add Animations to your 3D representations
Your customers will want to know about the functionalities of your product. With 3D representations, they’re able to trigger functionalities on their own. Here are the three most common types of animations:
One-time animation, click triggered
The most used animations are one-time animations. They are triggered by the viewer and perform an action that shows an initial and a final state (e.g. exploded views).
Continously moving components can be shown with looped animations. They start with loading the product and only end if you close the view.
Back and forth:
Back and forth animations are used if you’re able to reverse the animation by 50% and the motion is the same back- and forwards. This reduces complexity and saves unnecessary expenses in creation if you want to show only a motion without pre-defined final state.
Conclusion on CAD and 3D
Using 3D representations does not necessarily require a scan of your product. You can achieve good quality representations with your production information data.
Of course there are many more detailed and technical processes if you want to prepare your files completely (e.g. light, materials,...). But I hope this will give you a brief overview of what to think about when using 3D product representations based on CAD files.
If you don’t want to process and prepare your representations of your own, the VRxs ecosystem is always happy to help. Tell us about your product and use-case and we’ll find the best solution for your interactive representations.
