After you’ve taken the scan, you’re ready to upload the scan photos for processing.
Start by signing up for a free trial and then log in to our web app.
Click on Create in the web app, drag and drop the scan photos into the form, and click Upload.
While the photos are uploading, you can give the scan a name and description. These will appear with the Shimmer when you view it later in your gallery.
You can also choose between two Layout modes: Flat and Rumple.
Finally, select your desired output resolution and the chart size you used. For the resolution, we recommend 2K for sharing Shimmer Views on the web and 4K for 3D design.
When you’ve finished checking your settings and the upload is complete, press Process to begin processing your scan. Your new Shimmer View will be available in your gallery within 24 hours. We’ll send you an email when it’s ready for you to view.
Open the web app and click on a thumbnail in your gallery to open a Shimmer View.
We aim to create a faithful digital twin of your physical material, but we also give you the freedom to fine tune the appearance for your customers.
We provide the following controls for editing:
You can rename the material by clicking on the name and typing in a new name.
When you’re happy with your changes, click Save. This will update the appearance for any websites that embed this Shimmer View.
Now you’re ready to publish or download your Shimmer View. See the Publish section of our guide for details.
Take a handful of photos of the material from a series of different angles, using a camera with a flash.
Publish the Shimmer View and embed it in your retail site, or download the texture files for 3D workflows.
