How magic happens

How is the your masterpieces reconstruction coming along

ExploVision_Digital Furniture Reconstruction

Pre-production

On site, all dimensions and details of the furniture are carefully collected (measurements, photos, 3D scanner).

We can also work from your own documents (photos, 3D model).
We identify the different materials as well as the different kinematics (openings, mechanisms).
In collaboration with your teams, we build an adapted reconstruction scenario (video film, real-time immersion, touchscreen terminal, virtual reality, etc.); this will offer a unique experience to your visitors.

Reconstruction creation

Based on these elements, a long reconstruction process begins.
A first 3D model is made in order to validate the construction.
Several steps follow : texturing, lightning, 3D animations, compositing.
Detailed technical drawings can be produced on request.

 

Your masterpiece is now back to life!

Commissioning

The animation produced is then integrated into your website and/or your interactive terminal.
Regarding the integration to your website, all the necessary data are provided to your webmaster.
The touchscreen & VR terminals, for their part, are installed and commissioned by our teams.
