3D Product Design Trends That Are Here To Stay
The world of 3D product design is constantly evolving. Every year, new software and hardware offerings allow designers to push the envelope and create more innovative and realistic products. So, what can we expect in 3D product design trends over the next few years? We think the following trends will shape the industry in 2023 and beyond.
It's only natural that the world of 3D product design will follow suit as more and more businesses move to the cloud. Cloud-based collaboration platforms like Autodesk Forge allow distributed teams to work on projects in real time, regardless of location. This trend toward cloud-based collaboration will only continue in the years to come as more companies adopt remote work models and look for ways to streamline their design processes.
Increased Focus on Sustainability
Sustainability is one of the hottest topics in the business world today, and for a good reason. Consumers are demanding that brands take steps to reduce their carbon footprints. In response, we expect to see a greater focus on sustainable materials and manufacturing processes in 3D product design. Designers must be creative in using sustainable materials to achieve aesthetic and functional objectives.
Integration of augmented reality and virtual reality into product design is still in its early stages. Still, we expect significant progress in this area over the next few years. AR/VR technology can be used for everything from visualizing designs to user testing and form studies. As AR/VR headsets become more affordable and widely available, we expect to increase their use for 3D product design.
More Realistic Renderings
One trend that looks to shape the world of 3D product design in 2023 is the trend toward more realistic renderings. Gone are the days of blocky, unrealistic models; now, designers strive for a level of detail and realism that allows for true graphic immersion. One way this trend manifests itself is through improved lighting and shading technology, allowing products to appear more lifelike in their representations.
This technology also allows for greater accuracy in virtual reality projects, adding to the overall immersive experience. Additionally, we may see a rise in the use of 3d scanning technology, which allows for details such as texture and color to be accurately captured and rendered in digital designs. As technologies improve, expect to see more realistic renderings in 3D product design.
Customization and Personalization
As consumers become more aware of the importance of individuality, they increasingly demand customized and personalized products to their specific needs and preferences. This trend is being driven by the rise of social media, as people are constantly sharing photos and videos of themselves using products that have been customized or personalized for them. In response to this trend, many companies now offer customization and personalization options for their products.
3D product design is constantly evolving, with new software and hardware offerings being released yearly. There is a continued trend toward cloud-based collaboration, increased focus on sustainability, and greater integration of AR/VR into product design. These trends will shape the landscape of 3D product design over the next few years and beyond.
