The Rendered 3D and AR viewer is now faster and more efficient

3D AR viewer speed optimized

We’ve made a few changes to our 3D and AR viewer, now 3D assets are loaded 3-5 times quicker, and we all know how important load times are when running an e-commerce site. We are still using the Google model viewer as a base, below we’ve compared the timing to the standard Google model viewer.

* load times are affected by a lot of other factors such as your internet connection. If you have visited this page before then the models will have been cached, in that case they will load almost instantly.

The fidelity of the models are unchanged to the naked eye and other than loading much quicker, GPU and RAM usage are decreased so that 3D assets are more responsive to user input. This process has been built into our pipeline meaning there is nothing different for our clients to do or implement.

Below are the load times compared with different internet connections speeds, from slow 3G to fast fiber.
