Creating 3D products is the best and highest quality interactive tool for the presentation of exclusive jewelry and entire collections that are being prepared for sale.
3D jewellery visualization is a technology that is actively used today in the manufacture of jewelry of any type and complexity. The use of special software provides a number of advantages compared to previously used methods.
In most large jewelry companies, 3D modeling of jewelry became the stage preceding the production of products.
The main task, which was greatly simplified by the use of computer technology, which replaced the traditional manual labor, is the production of wax, that is, models of the future ring, earring or pendant, which is previously made from wax. The 3D modeling tool provides the following benefits:
Time saving. Performing a three-dimensional image of the desired object in 3D Max or another program used for visualization will be faster than manually – of course, if the artist is sufficiently familiar with the capabilities of this software.
Convenience of work. Built-in tools make it possible to create perfect symmetry for any decoration, which is quite difficult to achieve when creating a wax manually.
Variability. The saved three-dimensional model is not something unchanged, and at any time you can open this file in order to make the necessary corrections for the client or use one jewelry as a basis for developing an entire collection in a single style.
Accurate accounting of the quantity and characteristics of the material. This is required for costing, as well as a better understanding of what features will need to be taken into account during production.
An opportunity to check how the finished jewelry will look. The 3D model can be quickly modified or remade.
Often, a wax mold does not give an idea of what a ring or bracelet made of metal and inlaid with stones will look like.
Naturally, custom-made 3D modeling of jewelry implies not only the ability to work effectively in the program, but also use your artistic taste to create truly impressive designer jewelry. If you get the creation of a three-dimensional model to a third-party artist, it is better if he will have experience working with jewelry and successful examples of subject visualization.
Modeling gives exact symmetrical lines.
Benefits of 3D jewellery visualization
High efficiency, fast implementation is the basis for the implementation of orders of varying complexity. The spatial and three-dimensional representation of jewelry allows us to see in detail the future forms of the object and, at an early stage, make the necessary adjustments for light and materials.
Other advantages that 3D jewelry visualization is distinguished by are noted by experts as follows:
- high resolution and bulk model
- the effect of presence, allowing you to “touch” the future product;
- scale allowing a sketch and illustration of a very large size
- prompt execution of any volumes of work of varying complexity;
- the output is the most photorealistic visualization;
- return to the project after a certain time and the light and the studio will remain in their places
- quick change of textures and a single angle and studio lighting during visualization. Specialized programs not only display the object visually, but also carry out its construction, taking into account the specifics of jewelry technologies, such as density / softness of stones and metal, the optimal depth of stone planting;
- convenient image editing, saving time and money.
In addition, high-quality visualization of jewelry, allows you to create an animation of jewelry, which makes it possible to see the colorfulness of jewelry in the dynamics as close as possible to reality. Competent visualization can significantly increase the commercial value of the building, because it is much more pleasant to see a product, for example, in dynamics or get perfectly smooth glare and reflection on products on the site.
How isthree-dimensional model used in the production of jewelry
The resulting visual jewelry project is the basis for creating a wax at the factory (not only familiar wax can be used, but also polymers as a modern analogue). Sometimes special 3D printers are used for jewelers – compact devices that quickly create a polymer model based on a finished project.
This three-dimensional model, which has already passed from the program into reality, is placed in a gypsum mass to obtain the reverse form into which the metal will be poured. After the metal hardens, the jewelers only need to polish the product and insert the precious stones into the appropriate mounting sockets, if this is implied by the project.
In addition to production needs, jewelry modeling and visualization is sometimes in demand for presentation purposes, and sometimes a computer image is even better than a real photograph.
However, the main scope of 3D modeling in the work of the jeweler is still the development and creation of jewelry.In order to adequately present their projects, as well as give the audience the opportunity to fully present their future appearance, they often resort to the 3D visualization service of the object, which always has a positive effect on the choice of the audience, allowing you to win a tender or successfully sell a project.
3D presentation allows one to get closer to the client. Show the buyer the fullness of the proposed product without hidden sides (as is the case with ordinary photographs) and the need to follow the camera (as is the case with the video clip).
Indeed, in these cases, the buyer may get the impression that something is being hidden from him. Photo – can be a great addition to a virtual object, for which it can be integrated directly into a 3D object.
Remember that each jewelry has its own aura and its own purpose, which means that each item should be approached individually. We treat all of our work with appropriate creativity and a clear understanding of the goals and objectives that are set before us and the product we create.
The created product can be presented:
- on the manufacturer’s website, in the online store;
- at presentations;
- as souvenirs to regular customers – for example. when releasing a new collection;
