In this article, we will focus on meshes, which are the 3D models that make up the product configurator.

What are meshes and how do they work in Konfig?

A mesh is a collection of vertices, edges, and faces that define the shape of a 3D object. In Konfig, meshes are used to create the 3D models of the products that can be configured by the user. Konfig supports .obj file formats for meshes, which are a widely used and well-supported format for 3D models.

How to use meshes in Konfig

In order to use meshes in Konfig, you will need to export them from your 3D modeling application. When exporting meshes for Konfig, there are a few important things to keep in mind:

  • Each object that can be configured and has its own material must be exported separately. For example, if you have a chair with a wood frame and a fabric seat, you would need to export the frame and the seat as separate objects.
  • Each object must be exported relative to the same origin point. This is because Konfig does not currently support repositioning objects within the configurator, so it is important to make sure they are positioned correctly in the 3D modeling application before exporting.
  • Make sure to include any UV coordinates and normals in the exported file. These are used by Konfig to apply materials and lighting to the mesh, and are necessary for the configurator to

After exporting them, you can upload them in the "Meshes" tab
