Flatiron Solutions – Replica Barnegat Lighthouse 3D Visualizer
3D product viewers or visualizers offer capabilities that are unmatched by traditional product photos and specifications. 3D visualizers allow prospective customers to zoom in and out and rotate a product so they can better understand how the product is made and how it fits together. Even simple products are easier to understand if you can spin them around, turn them over and look underneath. We built the following 3D visualizer of a five foot tall replica of the Barnegat lighthouse for a company that manufactures outdoor decor. The 3D product visualizer lets a consumer get very close to in-person shopping at their convenience. Seeing a product in their own living room or on their own lawn can help move someone much closer to a purchase decision in just a few minutes.
On a PC, drag your mouse to rotate the product, use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out and even look underneath. On a phone or tablet you can use the (+) or (-) buttons or fingers to do the same and swipe around to rotate the product left, right, up and down. On an Android or Apple phone or tablet, touch the AR icon in the upper right to switch to view the product in AR. One a PC you will be presented with a QR code to scan on your Android or Apple device. The following photos will help show how this works.
Step 1 – Point your phone at a location where you would like to see the Lighthouse in Augmented Reality and then click on the AR icon in the upper right corner of the 3d Visualizer.
Step 2 – Move your phone around to select a spot to view the Lighthouse in the scene in real time.
Step 3 – With the Lighthouse placed where you want it, take a screen shot, photo or video.
