Install and setup 3D models for 3D preview

Installing 3D model

After purchasing one of our premade models, you will receive a zip archive. Just unzip this zip and upload the unzipped folder into the wp-content/uploads/fpd_3d directory. If there is not fpd_3d directory, just create one.

So it will look like this:

Setting up product

Create a new FPD product or select an existing one and open the the product options. Here you will find a dropdown to select the 3D model that you would like to display with the FPD product.

The Printing Area will tell you the size of the printing area that you need to define in the view options.


In the FPD settings > General > Display section you can set the placement of the 3D preview. Here you have different options to place the 3D preview. The same option can also be found in the Individual Product Settings.

Using own 3D models

If you want to use your own 3D models, you need a 3D modelling software. You just need to create a group with multiple objects. The customisable object (for example a label) needs to be called "custom" and have a material applied to it called "custom" as well. Here is a screenshot how it looks in Cinema4D.
