The Fourmeta R&D proudly presents the 3D Configurator app - the next big thing on Shopify! This new app on the Shopify scene is about to take the ecommerce world by storm. Powered by Shopify Hydrogen, the 3D Configurator by Fourmeta is an app that allows your customers to configure products in 3D. The 3D Configurator by Fourmeta is the perfect tool for Shopify store owners who want to give their customers a truly immersive shopping experience. We believe this app is a game-changer for online shopping, and we're excited to see how it will revolutionise the ecommerce landscape. 

What is the 3D Configurator?

Have you ever found the perfect piece of furniture online, only to be disappointed when it arrives and doesn't look quite right in your home? Have you found the perfect pair of sneakers, yet when they were delivered, the colour wasn't quite what you wanted?

With the new 3D Configurator app by Fourmeta, that problem is a thing of the past. Powered by Shopify Hydrogen, the 3D Configurator app is a revolutionary new tool that allows Shopify store owners to employ interactive 3D models of their products. Customers can view the product from various angles and customise it to their liking by changing a variety of characteristics like colour, material, and design.

The app has been designed to make it easy for store owners to add 3D product models to their Shopify stores and to allow customers to interact with them in a fun and engaging way. It lets your customer see how the chosen product will look in real life before they make a purchase.

With this ability, shoppers no longer have to worry about whether or not they are making the right decision. They can now see your products in a whole new light. Not sure about the colour? No problem! With the 3D Configurator, you can see how the product will look in any colour you choose. Want to change the material? You can do that too! With this app at your disposal, the possibilities are endless, which means that you can create truly unique product configurations that will wow your customers. 

Sounds interesting, but how does it work? Let’s take a look at what this app can do. In the next section, we will walk you through some of the app’s capabilities and provide some screenshots for more visual detail.

How Does It Work?

Clicking on the “Model” on the left side opens the panel on the right where you can edit the position of the product in the model space, rotate it around three axes, and change the scaling in three directions.

On the left side we see the list of geometries and their names under the “Model” field. If you click on a geometry, on the right side you can edit the specific geometry.

Here you can set the camera angle for better viewing of the selected geometry. When the user selects the geometry, the model will automatically rotate to this angle.

Next, you can add a material (e.g. leather or fabric), change the name of a material, or remove an unwanted material.

Below you can edit the parameters of a specific material. In the current version you can only edit the following: colour, metalness, roughness, visible, wireframe, and add a normal map in the “normalMap” item.

If you select “UI” on the left panel, then on the right panel you can set the names of sections and menu items, materials, and colours for the user to see.

At the very top you can specify the names of the model parts and assign them to sections or categories by dragging the list items. Here you can add and delete sections and edit their names.

In the “Geometries Section,” you can specify the product ID for a specific geometry. In future versions of the app, we plan to have the option to add or delete geometries. For example, it can be things such as different handles for cupboard doors. Here, you can allow the user to pick the handle they like and send it to the cart based on the product ID specified in the field below.

In the “Materials Section,” you can edit the names of the materials that the user will see.

In the “Colors Section,” you can add colours for a specific geometry and for a specific material. Materials and colours are specific to each individual product that you specify in the Shopify admin area. To specify which variant a specific colour corresponds to, simply enter the variant ID in the “Enter variant ID” field. For example, you have a round handle as a product. This handle can be wood or metal, black or brown - these are the variants of a specific product for which you can specify a different price. This price will change when the user clicks on different handles.

Who Is It For?

This tool is perfect for all individuals who wish to boost their conversion rate, sell more items, and provide a more personalised online buying experience.

This gives customers a much better sense of what the product looks like and how it works before they purchase it. It also allows your customers to create unique product configurations that can be customised to their specific needs.

The app is very easy to use and has a wide range of features. By matching the customisation options with your store's available inventory, the 3D Configurator makes it easy to keep track of what you have in stock and ensure that the right products are always available. Your customers will be able to see your products in a whole new light, leading to better conversion rates, more sales, and happy customers.
