  • with a 360° view, 
  • witnessing the changes they bring to it, in real time.
These features allow a fully immersing experience. The client can witness the object’s reactions toward features from its environment such as lighting.

The fashion industry is known to be an important contributor to the climate crisis. The fashion and luxury industries mostly bring their contribution to climate change through overproduction, waste, and the greenhouse gas emissions that follow.  

In fact, every year 92 billion tons [4] of textile are wasted in the fashion industry. This number is expected to increase by 60% des 2015 to 2030. Furthermore, according to McKinsey, the fashion industry itself is responsible for around 4% [5] of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions

Nevertheless, Configurateurs web de produits en 3D promote made-to-order production methods. The product is made only when the demand for it is clearly expressed. Therefore, the number of products produced exactly matches the number of products demanded, allowing a reduction of waste through a reduction in overproduction.  

Moreover, a reduced production rhythm reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions.  


Overall, Configurateurs web de produits en 3D benefit brands by offering their consumers a better brand experience, thus increasing the brand’s performance. Embrace 4 of the numerous benefits from an online product configurator, to enhance your brand image and give your consumers a special online shopping experience.
