Understanding 3D Models

Utilizing 3D models with Augmented Reality on your Shopify store can offer your customers an immersive shopping experience. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to upload and manage your 3D AR models using the Pasilobus Augmented Reality app.

Step 1: Prepare Your 3D Models

Before you can upload your 3D models, they need to be ready in a compatible format. This typically includes .usdz or .glb formats. Aim for a balance between detail and file size to ensure high quality while keeping the AR experience smooth.

We recommend upload your models in usdz format. glb files currently do not work well on iPhones and iPads.

Step 2: Access Product Media in Shopify Admin

Navigate to your Shopify admin panel. Select 'Products', then pick the product you want to add a 3D model to. On the product page, you'll find the 'Media' section where you can add images, videos, and 3D models.

Step 3: Upload Your 3D Models

In the 'Media' section of your chosen product, select 'Add'. Upload your 3D model file from your computer. After uploading, you can rearrange the media order by dragging and dropping the files.

Step 4: Update Your Product

After successfully adding the 3D model, make sure to save your product changes. Your product page will now display the 3D model alongside other product media.

Step 5: Add AR Button or Banner

Navigate to the Pasilobus Augmented Reality app dashboard from the 'Apps' section in your Shopify admin panel. Here, you can configure the "Try with AR" button or an Augmented Reality banner for your store. This signals your customers that AR viewing is available for your products.

By following these steps, you'll be able to efficiently manage your 3D models and provide an enhanced shopping experience with Augmented Reality. Remember, the quality and realism of your 3D models play a crucial role in the effectiveness of the AR experience.
