Technical recommendations

For optimal use, models should stay under 100k polygons
Downscale the resolution of the model's textures to 1024x1024px
Use minimal amount of texture maps in materials

iPhones start having serious difficulties in AR for models over 500k polygons.

Photorealistic Rendering

Our new Photorealistic rendering feature is now available for all our Platform users. Define the resolution best suited for your purpose and render. Try it!

Server-side rendering

Allows users to render multiple products and all their variants at the same time without it draining any of your time or slowing down your computer.

After the rendering is finished, users will receive an email with a download link.


Currently the available dimensions range from 128 to 4096 px.

Choose the dimensions best suited for purpose, align the right camera angle and hit render.

Watermarked renders

Watermarked renders can be used to find the perfect camera angle for your product.

Their use does not use rendering credits, but we do recommend applying minimal dimensions when testing out different angles.

Render all variants

This allows you to render all your product variants at the same time.

It is perfect for creating matching product images for online stores.
