Importing Models, Occluders & Asset Packages

To get started you will need four 3D models (or eight if you have models for both feet):

  1. 3D Shoe Model
  2. Ankle Occluder (or Vyking Studio’s default)
  3. Plane Occluder (or Vyking Studio’s default)
  4. Leg Occluder (or Vyking Studio’s default)

Vyking Studio provides you with default occluders however we strongly recommend you to import your own custom ankle occluder to make the occlusion work more effectively.

Right shoe, Left shoe or Both?

On the Object panel (left side) you will see that there are three different options: Right only, Both & Left only. These options are available in case that you only have a only a right shoe model, only a left shoe model or if you have both.

If you have only one shoe available then the model is mirror flipped onto the other foot in the Preview and also inside the Vyking SneakerKit SDK.

You have two ways to import your 3D models

1. Importing one by one

you can select in the Object section the object you would like to import then go in the section beneath “3D model uploader” to upload a new 3D model by clicking on the upload icon or delete the existing one by clicking on the bin icon.

2. importing as a package

by clicking on “Import” in the top menu you can import a whole previously made asset package, which includes your 3D shoes and its accompanying occluders. This “Import” feature will only work if you import an Android package due to 3D web format compatibility (Vyking Studio tool only supports GLB formats).

Please note that if you import a package it will overwrite any existing 3D models in use on Vyking Studio.

Adding Description

Each time you import a new 3D shoe you can assign the brand name in the short description and a model name in the long description.

In this section, you can also import a thumbnail/product picture. Please note that the product picture has to be .png with a transparent background

Please note that these descriptions will be added in the asset package and metadata in the JSON file when you export.
