Production Method – Suppliers Comparison

In the world of 3D modeling, creating photorealistic representations of organic footwear is a demanding task that requires careful consideration of the tools and techniques available. Two methods that have gained attention for their potential in achieving lifelike results are NeRF (Neural Radiance Fields) and Photogrammetry. Let’s explore the strengths and differences between these approaches to determine which is best suited for creating photorealistic organic footwear models.

NeRF (Neural Radiance Fields):
NeRF is a cutting-edge technique in computer graphics and machine learning that aims to reconstruct 3D scenes from 2D images. It works by training a neural network to infer the 3D structure and appearance of objects directly from a collection of 2D images. NeRF excels at capturing fine details and complex lighting effects, making it a promising candidate for creating photorealistic footwear models.

One of the key advantages of NeRF is its ability to generate novel views of objects from any angle, even those not present in the original images. This allows for greater flexibility and creativity in the rendering process, enabling artists to explore different perspectives and lighting conditions to enhance the realism of the final model.

However, NeRF also has its limitations. Training a NeRF model requires a large amount of data and computational resources, which can be challenging and time-consuming. Additionally, NeRF may struggle with capturing fine surface details and textures, especially in highly complex or irregular shapes like those found in organic footwear.

Photogrammetry:
Photogrammetry is a tried-and-tested method for creating 3D models by capturing detailed surface information and geometry from real-world photographs. It involves taking a series of images of an object from multiple angles and processing them with specialized software to reconstruct a digital replica. Photogrammetry is renowned for its ability to faithfully replicate the intricate details and textures of real-world objects, making it a popular choice for creating photorealistic footwear models.

One of the main advantages of photogrammetry is its ability to capture accurate surface details and textures, including subtle imperfections and irregularities that contribute to the realism of the final model. Photogrammetry also offers a relatively straightforward and accessible workflow, requiring only a camera and photogrammetry software to get started.

However, photogrammetry also has its limitations. It relies heavily on the quality and quantity of input images, requiring careful planning and execution to ensure optimal results. Additionally, photogrammetry may struggle with capturing certain materials and surfaces, such as highly reflective or transparent materials, which can affect the fidelity of the final model.

Features and Functionality

When adopting 3D for your brand and e-commerce, planning and foresight are crucial. While there are many factors to consider beforehand, it’s important not to get carried away by the challenge. Starting by choosing a supplier is a good start. Obviously, it all comes down to what you need and how you want to use your 3D models. Depending on your product category, some suppliers are more specialized towards footwear brands, bags and glasses, while others are more general, and the suppliers technology reflects that too. So let’s start comparing suppliers!

Fibbl

Virtual Try-on: Engage your brand’s fans with Virtual Try-on for a first-class customer experience that facilitates smarter consumer decisions. In fact, this tech has a proven uplift of increasing transactions with 52%. Read the more about that here.

3D viewer: By now the 3D viewer is a classic, but we’ve taken it a step further with our 3D layer technology making it a 3D-first implementation. This approach has a proven track record of increasing conversions by 16 & and cutting returns by 29%.

3D Generated Images: With a 3D Model a world of opportunities open. Except using your 3D model for VTO, 3D viewer, AR and so on, you can use the same model to replace your existing product images. In fact, keeping brand and product consistency across online channels, with seamless distribution to marketplaces and resellers, has never been easier with 3D generated content. A great must read on the subject is how legacy brand Gant saved 50% in time and money by using 3D generated product images.

3D Generated Videos: Much like images, 3D generated video content offer vast opportunities to push great experiences in your channels. In fact, it has a proven track record of increasing CTR, RPC and average sales. Dutch footwear brand Nubikk incorporated 3D generated videos into their email marketing to boost engagement and drive more clicks to their product pages. French footwear brand No Name utilize 3D generated videos on their catalogue page online.

AR Placement: Augmented Reality (AR) holds significant importance for immersive e-commerce experiences due to its ability to transform the way customers interact with products and brands online. Enhanced product visualization, increased customer engagement, and reduced product uncertainty are some benefits from using this tech. Obviously, we deliver all these features in what we call a complete 3D experience.

Zakeke

How to implement 3D on your e-commerce

Fibbl seamlessly integrates on any e-commerce platform. Listen to our CTO, Christian Kaunissaar, explaining how!

The Fibbl script seamlessly integrates into any e-commerce platform, serving as your sole requirement to unlock a 3D experience on your site. Implemented once on the global product detail page template, it dynamically appears or remains hidden on respective product detail pages according to your choosing.

The majority of our clients have managed to implement and release the script to production in less than a day. See full documentation regarding the implementation here. The script is straightforward, and you always have complete control over its display on your website. The majority of our clients simply add buttons that trigger the 3D, AR, or VTO experiences with a click. See how to embed buttons here.

If one of your products has Fibbl 3D content, it will be displayed. If not, it will not be displayed. This is always the case unless you’ve intentionally unpublished a specific product in our system or disabled a specific technology for a product — actions you have complete control over using the Fibbl platform.
