Product Turntables

Learn about product turntables and its applications.

WHAT ARE PRODUCT TURNTABLES?

3D product turntables are digital tools that allow for the interactive, 360-degree visualization of a product in a virtual environment. They are created using 3D modelling and animation techniques to simulate the effect of a physical turntable that rotates a product to show it from multiple angles.

This technology is widely used in online retail, digital marketing, and virtual exhibitions to enhance the user experience. By providing a comprehensive view of the product, enabling customers to explore details and features as they would in a physical store setting.

WHO USES PRODUCT TURNTABLES?

Product turntables are used by various industries and professionals to enhance product visualisation and marketing. Here are six examples:

Online stores use product turntables to create 360-degree views of products, allowing customers to view items from all angles and thus enhancing the online shopping experience.

These professionals use digital turntables to showcase and review their 3D models from all angles, ensuring detailed work and consistency in animations.

They incorporate digital turntables in their development process to display character and object models. This helps in visualising assets in a 3D space, aiding in design and integration within the game environment.

AR developers use 3D turntables to create and test models that are used in augmented reality applications, ensuring the models look realistic from every angle.

VR platforms often use 3D turntables to demonstrate products or interactive objects in virtual stores and experiences, allowing users to view and interact with objects in a simulated 3D environment.

They use digital turntables to create interactive 3D presentations of historical artefacts, scientific models, and other educational materials, making learning more engaging and comprehensive.

BENEFITS OF 3D PRODUCT TURNTABLES

3D product turntables offer a range of benefits that can enhance product presentation, engagement, and understanding in various industries. Here are eight key benefits:

3D product turntables make product presentations more dynamic and attractive, capturing the interest of potential customers by showcasing products in a visually engaging way.

By allowing interactive exploration, 3D turntables engage users more deeply, encouraging them to spend more time with the product which can lead to higher conversion rates.

Customers can view every angle and detail of a product, which helps in reducing doubts and questions about the product’s appearance and functionality.

In e-commerce, 3D turntables can mimic the in-store experience, giving customers a better sense of the product’s look and feel, thus bridging the gap between online and physical shopping.

Using 3D turntables ensures that all products are displayed uniformly, maintaining a consistent quality and style in product visuals across all marketing platforms.

By rotating to show different features and components, 3D turntables can effectively communicate the unique aspects and advantages of a product.

As customers have a clearer understanding of what they are buying, there is often a reduction in the rate of product returns due to unmet expectations.

Once a 3D model is created, it can be reused in various contexts such as augmented reality, virtual reality, and different marketing materials, making it a versatile and cost-effective tool.

WHERE ARE 3D PRODUCT TURNTABLES USED?

SOCIAL MEDIA

Product turntables create engaging, interactive posts that capture audience attention and increase interaction rates by showcasing products in motion.

WEBSITES

They are integrated into product pages to provide a virtual hands-on experience, allowing customers to view products from every angle and enhance their buying confidence.

HOW ARE PRODUCT TURNTABLES CREATED?

Model Preparation

A detailed 3D model of the product is created or sourced, ensuring it is accurate and visually appealing.

STEP 01

Texture and Lighting

Textures and materials are applied to the model, and lighting is set up to enhance the model’s realism and highlight its features.

STEP 02

Animation Setup

The turntable effect is achieved by animating the model’s rotation around a fixed axis, usually 360 degrees, at a smooth and consistent pace.

STEP 03

Rendering and Exporting

The final model is rendered, producing high-quality images or videos that can be integrated into various digital platforms or used with physical turntables at events.

STEP 04

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO GET YOUR PRODUCT TURNTABLES PROJECT STARTED?

Although we do not need all of the above, these will make the project much smoother.

Great work! Very professional animation and very nice to work with them!

Firstly, to begin a project, clients provide all the information required. For product visualisations, we require things such as drawings, design specifications, sketches, mood boards or other type of information you may have.

To clarify, we will check all of the content the clients have provided and ask for more details if necessary. In addition, a meeting, phone call or Teams call is always beneficial. To sum up, this helps avoid any misconception and allows us to shorten turnaround times for 3D animation services.

We start working as soon as we understand all of the details the task requires, and time frames have been agreed by both parties. Our 3D artists keep in constant contact with the clients throughout this process, with regular updates.

After that, we present animated grey previews to you for comments and review and finally make the adjustments.

The client accepts the drafts for final rendering.

Finally, we present the 3D animation, after we have completed post-production in high resolution with full quality lighting, reflections, glossiness, and materials.
