Easy 3D Scan™ from Cappasity — take your brand to another level with 3D visualization

Jan 31 · 4 min read

To become an e-commerce leader today, you must employ advanced immersive technologies, such as 3D product imaging. In this article, we’ll show you why and how, with the help of the Cappasity Easy 3D Scan™.

What is Easy 3D Scan™?

Cappasity Easy 3D Scan™ is a professional software for 3D product imaging. It allows you to create and embed 3D Views into your online store, mobile app, and AR/VR to give your customers fully immersive shopping experience.

What is 3D View?

3D View is a light and fast native to the Cappasity data format of interactive 3D objects, which can be integrated into any website, AR and mobile apps using an API/SDK or iFrame.

Why do you need 3D visualization for your brand?

3D Views allow customers to rotate and inspect an item online just like they would in a brick-and-mortar store. Additional interactivity gives a clear understanding of the potential purchase and, as a result, boosts conversion and minimizes returns. To be specific, it has proven to increase conversion rates by up to 30% and product page dwell time by up to six times.

Vast usage options

Thanks to the Cappasity cloud-based platform, 3D Views can be used for different sales channels to convey true product quality.

Here are the most popular 3D content use cases:

  • E-commerce websites through API / SDK
  • Mobile apps via frameworks for iOS and Android
  • VR/AR applications
  • Social media
  • Digital signage

Equipment to start

Shoot a video of your product with the basic equipment available at any photo studio. It’s that easy! For best results you will require:

  • Digital camera. Use any standard digital camera with movie mode, preferably with 4K resolution. Mount your camera on a tripod.
  • Studio lighting.
  • Motorized turntable. It will help you get a smooth and even 3D product spin. These can be purchased in any size, from small and medium to large enough for a mannequin or model to stand on.

If you don’t have the equipment or the experience, you can reach out to our global network of product imaging experts.

3 simple steps to create and embed 3D View

  • If you don’t have an account on the Cappasity platform yet, sign up first. Then download and install the Easy 3D Scan™ software and launch it with your username and password. Now you can easily create, edit, and upload content to your account.
  • Let’s create some 3D content. Place your object in the center of the turntable. Make sure it is rotating evenly. The optimal speed for a 3D spin is 30–60 seconds. Shoot a video of 1.5 spins of the object and you’re done!
  • Next, upload the 3D View to your account on the Cappasity platform. From there, you can embed it into any website, mobile app, and VR/AR. To do so, go to your Cappasity account and open a required 3D View, click the ‘Embed’ button below the image and copy the embed code. Then paste the code into the web page.
