If you'd like a 3D Artist to model your product in 3D, go to this article to find out how to place an order.


Step 1: What are the essential elements to check before validating my 3D model?

The 3D artist in charge of your modelling selects additional visuals to present your product to you.

More than 80% of our customers validate their product after version 1, but if you're not happy with version 1, our 3D team will take your feedback into account and propose version 2 of your product.

To validate your 3D model, check that :

  1. The shape of the product corresponds visually to the physical product.

  2. The product looks good (colour, texture, shine, etc.)

  3. All the elements are present on all the labels.

Step 2: Proceed carefully by addressing every detail of your 3D model.

  1. Interact with your product in your hand or on a stand and compare the visuals: Do you feel that your product matches your 3D model? Compare the colour of the liquids, the reflections, etc.

    NB: Don't forget that when you interact with your product, this doesn't take into account the angle of view of the camera and the light used to present your 3D model.
    Here's a that explains how lights and reflections work on your scene and with your models ↓

2. Check that the layout of your label and all the visual elements supplied are present and in the right places before validating the 3D model.

3. Observe Is the colour sufficiently saturated and contrasty? Is the contrast realistic? and Does the material look real to you? Is the plastic, glass or metal sufficiently matt or shiny?

Caution: Don't forget that your product reacts to light and its environment (reflections).

4. Observe the material: does the texture seem real?

Is the color sufficiently saturated? Is the contrast realistic?

Please note that reflections on the model and shadows depend on the camera and lighting chosen: you can modify them infinitely in Omi! There's no need to provide feedback on this point.

5. Please note that the colours of your labels are those provided in your file. If you notice a difference with your physical product, it may be due to the material on which the label is printed. This is because colours react differently depending on the material, and render differently on plastic or glass; so the same Pantone colour won't give exactly the same result if printed on cardboard or plastic. This can be modified once on request, provided you designate a single reference that the 3D Artist will replicate: the physical product or the pantone.
