Cartesan lets businesses turn their products into 3D. To do so, we just need a few pictures or a video showing different angles of your product.

Creating 3D models

To create a 3D model, use our iOS mobile app, web editor, or Shopify app.

Sign up or log in to your Cartesan account on one of the above platforms. Then, press the '+' icon in the top right of your screen.

Select photos (at least 30) or a video showing all angles of your product. Then, press the check button (iOS) or the 'Generate Model' button (web and Shopify app). We'll get to work on creating your 3D models immediately! Usually this takes just 5 minutes.

Scanning Example

Below is an example of how to record a video of your product.

Video Capture Tips

  • Rotate slowly around the object you are scanning
  • Make sure all angles of the object are included
  • Avoid objects that are shiny, reflective, or lack noticable texture
  • Avoid backgrounds similar to the scanned object's appearance

Manage your menu from right in the app or web editor. Adjust lighting, label parts of your product, set descriptions, and more.

Displaying 3D models

After creating your 3D models, now you can display them anywhere you'd like!
