First Steps

Follow these four “easy” steps to get your 360° product view online!

1) Product Photographs

For a smooth 360° product view you need at least 36 images of the product, shoot every 10° for a full 360° view.

You can download also the sample backpack images.

The product images are the “most difficult” part of the 360° product view. You can contact a professional photographer in your area or try to shoot the photos by your own. Here can you find more information on how to photograph a product for 360 product photography on your own.

2) Use the 360 Creator (or legacy 3DRT Setup Utility)

Once you have the 360 product images ready, launch the web based creator and import the images (drag and drop or click to select the images).

After creating a (trial) account, you can upload your 360 product view to our cloud, or download it to host it on your own servers.

You can alternatively use the legacy desktop application (windows only, not longer developed) 3DRT Setup Utility which you can download for free. You will also need a free trial license key.

3) Upload to your web server (if not using the cloud option)

Lets assume your output folder with the 360 files is called silverring, and your website www.example.com. You need to use FTP client to upload the folder to your website. You can use this guide from the WordPress site, or contact me and I’ll help you.

4) Integrate into your website

If you are using the cloud hosting, just copy the iframe embed code and paste it it the html code of your page.

If you use WordPress, please check the WordPress plugin manual.

Once you have completed the upload, you can test and view your 360 product like this: www.example.com/silverring (in case you have uploaded the silverring in the document root of your example.com domain.)

If the upload was successful and you can see the 360° product view, you can use this guide to embed the 360&deg view into any other website, like youtube, embed using an iframe.

Done?
