When you order a 3D model of a product from Omi, you will need to provide us with files of all the graphic elements present on your product so that we can accurately model it. These elements are most frequently :
The front and back labels of your product;
Any graphic element present on your product (silkscreen, inlay, seal, hot stamping, embossing...).
These files, commonly known as label or décor files, are essential for realistic modelling of your product.
For example, in the case of this bottle we need the file for the front label and the file for the label on the cap.
Which file formats must be used?
.AI: .AI files are native Adobe Illustrator files.
.PDF vectorized: This file must have been exported using vectorization software.
.EPS or .SVG are also suitable
Whatever file format you use, Omi needs you to perform two essential operations to be able to use your files:
You need to vectorize your fonts in your file;
Graphic elements (images, logos, etc.) must be incorporated into your file.
How to export your files in 2 minutes

Step 2 - Vectorize the text and fonts in your file:
Load your file into Adobe Illustrator
Select the text to be vectorized
Go to Text at the top of the screen, click on Vectorize
Congratulations, you've now vectorized the text and fonts in your file!
Step 3 - Attach graphic elements (illustrations, images, logos, etc.) to your file :
On Adobe Illustrator, go to Window, Links
A window appears listing the various visual elements imported into your document
From the list, select the files you wish to incorporate, click on the 3 horizontal parallel bars in the top right-hand corner of the interface, and select incorporate image.
Save your file
Congratulations, your file is now ready! Upload it when you order your 3D model on Omi.
