Detailed 3D mechanical animation of parts, components, and machines is very useful in visualizing a product or concept even before a prototype is produced. Product animations for mechanical assemblies or subassemblies can be used to showcase the functionality of a product. Carrying out mechanical 3D animation in-house will only add up to the operational costs and might not even yield the desired results.
So the best option is to outsource it to a reliable service provider. At Flatworld, we use realistic mechanical 3D animation to showcase the functionality of the product even before you build the prototype and also help product designers to fine-tune the product design. This type of product simulation gives you and your client a better idea of the final product and its performance.
3D Product Animation Services We Offer
Engineers and animation experts at Flatworld create precise, detailed mechanical 3D models of the product. They start from engineering drawings, CAD files, or product samples, keeping in mind the end use of the animation.
They can also create 3D models from hand drawings or sketches with 2D CAD data. Products samples are a good way for our team to gauge the client's expectations, and they create 3D mechanical animations that meet these expectations and standards.
5 Stages of 3D Mechanical Product Animation
Mechanical 3D product animation allows you to eliminate time-consuming steps from the process. It also allows for easy verification of wire frame geometry creation, kinematics, and designs against specifications and design rules.
The 3D animation process at Flatworld Solutions includes these stages -
Receive storyboard/animation narration. This can be accompanied by hand drawings and 2D models
Receive existing 3D models. If no 3D models exist, the team creates the 3D models required for the product animation
Material properties are applied to 3D models
Camera angles are defined, lighting is set, and completed composite is sent to client for approval
After approval, the final product 3D animation is rendered and again sent for approval to the client
If required, our animation team makes further changes to the final product animation based on feedback from the client. They ensure that the client is completely satisfied with the final rendering.
Additionally, we provide comprehensive 3D part modeling services that can help you see product blow-ups and understand its intricacies better.
