Vulp continues to evolve, both in the foreground and in the background. We therefore regularly post a new version of Vulp online. This version may contain new features, improvements or bug fixes.
Customizable Augmented Reality message
If you view the virtual message via a browser, the AR button will be visible. The Augmented Reality mode is immediately activated on mobile devices and you can see the virtual product in your own environment.
In the browser you will receive a message with a QR code, which you can scan to go directly to the correct URL. The QR code also includes a matching text, which you can now have adjusted per product in our CMS.
Scan instructions for Android / WebXR
When Augmented Reality mode is activated on an Android device, you will now see an instructional animation and text. This instruction demonstrates what to do with the phone to scan the environment.
Depending on the product placement, you will be shown whether you need to slowly scan the wall or the floor to show the virtual product in your own environment. This feature was already available for Apple iOS.
Auto generated 3D model for iOS
For web/Android and iOS you need different 3D files, namely a GLB and a USDZ. In the development phase of a virtual product, it is sometimes not easy to generate and upload a USDZ again and again to get a preview for iOS.
In the latest version of vulp, a USDZ is automatically generated, which speeds up the development process. This is also very easy for future functions in which you get even more control over the product and colors. From now on you don’t have to download a new USDZ for every option.
Color space changed to sRGB linear
We have updated the color of all 3D virtual products to a different ‘color space’, which has little influence on the current products. But for future virtual products, the color can be approached more easily and accurately. In this way the appearance comes as close as possible to the actual product.
New clear loading animation
All virtual products now have a clear loading animation. Previously you only saw a small bar at the top of the screen, this was not always visible. Now, in the few seconds that a 3D model is loaded, you briefly see an animation
The website is available in Dutch and English
Our public website is now available in Dutch and English. This way all our visitors can easily view all information and we are also easier to find in the search engines.
Maximum camera angle
In some cases it is not necessary to make the bottom or back visible in a 3D virtual product, for example. In the new version of vulp you can indicate the maximum camera angle via our CMS or via URL parameters. This can be set via two parameters: ‘min camera orbit’ and ‘max camera orbit’
Curious about how to implement this in your own vulp-viewer, check out our extensive documentation: https://docs.vulp.studio/docs/parameters/camera/#min-camera-orbit
We try to get the products as close as possible to a realistic product with vulp. In the new version of vulp, the shadow has been rendered nicer / more realistic. This means that the product looks even better in both the browser and in Augmented Reality. If you find the shadow not striking enough, or too striking, you can easily have this adjusted via our CMS or via the ‘shadow-intensity’ parameter in the URL.
More information about shadow intensity can be found in our documentation:
Client overview page
We have just published a new overview page for our customers. Here our customers can view all their products and also directly generate a URL or embedded code. During the generation of the URL or code, you can already set various parameters, such as language and available color of the product.
Public website launched
Of course we want to inform everyone as well as possible about vulp and all the functions that vulp contains. On our public website you can now view all functions, compare the subscriptions and read detailed information about all options. In addition to all the text that can be found there, you can also get started yourself by viewing examples of virtual products or the various implementations of vulp. You can also go directly to the documentation website.
Subscriptions and prices updated
To make it as clear as possible for our customers, we have divided our subscriptions into 3 types;
a basic subscription in which you can have 1-3 virtual products, you can choose multiple product colors, integrate a customizable 360 degree player on your website and activate Augmented Reality.
In our Premium account you get some extras such as info hotspots, dimensions layers and multilingual products and up to 10 virtual products. If this is not enough, you can opt for our enterprise package.
Change all button colors to your liking
We try to make integration as easy as possible with vulp. Embedding a vulp-viewer is as easy as embedding a youtube video. Besides the fact that we have a standard script, there is also a lot of room to adjust the viewer to your own liking.
In addition to being able to change the background color, you can now also change all button colors, so that the fill menu fits perfectly in the style of your website or webshop. The colors are easy to adjust via the URL parameters. More information can be found on our documentation website:
Extensive documentation website
Integrating vulp into your website or webshop is very easy, with the example code you will have your virtual product running on your website within seconds. If you want to make extensive adjustments, or if you don’t quite get it, we now have a complete documentation website.
On this website you will receive a step-by-step explanation of how to integrate the vulp-viewer. You also have a detailed explanation of all possible adjustable parameters. This way you can change the whole style of the viewer, but also the behavior of the camera etc.
You can easily find the documentation via our website or directly via https://docs.vulp.studio/
Ability to customize textures and not just color
The function to change colors of parts of a product is becoming more and more extensive. In addition to being able to change the basic color of various parts, you can now also replace the underlying material, so you can easily switch between different types of fabric or from brushed metal to a coated top layer.
Release version 1 of vulp
The moment is here! In recent months we have worked hard and tested to put a fully working product online. With vulp you can view every product digitally. Vulp offers the option to view it in 360 degrees from any angle. With our 3D e-commerce platform you can easily switch between colors, or add extra information by means of a dimension layer or textual hotspots.
In addition to being able to use the 3D model directly in your web browser, there is also the option to place the virtual product in your own environment through Augmented Reality.
At the touch of a button, without downloading additional apps, you can place products in your own room and view them from every conceivable angle.
We want to make the use of virtual products for websites and webshops as easy and fast as possible. Therefore, embedding vulp is as easy as embedding a Youtube video. Within seconds you can display a virtual product on your website.
QR code for quick activation Augmented Reality
Many visitors to websites and webshops do not go via a mobile phone. This means that the Augmented Reality function cannot be activated immediately. To make the transition from a web browser to a mobile device as quick and easy as possible, you can now scan the QR code.
Scanning the qr code will take you directly to the right page where the virtual product can be found. And with your phone or tablet you can easily start the AR function anyway, so that you can view the 3D model in your own room.
Support for multi language
Color names, product names, hotspot texts etc can be different in every language. vulp offers the option to set the texts separately for each language. In addition to being able to set texts separately, the standard texts that can be found in vulp, such as menu names, etc., are also translated. If you have a multilingual website or webshop, you can offer the right content by switching the language parameter.
At the moment we support Dutch, English and German. If you need a different language for your customers, please let us know and we will ensure that this language is added quickly
Show more information with hotspots
You can now use vulp to add more information in the form of texts and images. This can be done through hotspots; points on the 3D model that you can click on. If you click on a hotspot, a text field will appear, in which you can enter additional information about the product.
All your product colors directly adjustable
Within vulp you can predefine all your product colors, so that you can easily and quickly switch between all available product colors in the viewer. Because we control the color change in Vulp instead of via the 3D model, we save a lot of data, because a new 3D model does not have to be loaded every time. Because you can change the colors, Vulp is ideal as a 3D configurator and you can see all variations of your product directly on your website.
Show size information
Besides the fact that you can virtually view a product on a website in augmented reality in vulp, there are countless other functions that we can add to vulp. The first feature we add is extra information in the form of a dimensions layer. You can activate this layer and immediately view all sizes of the virtual product. If you only want to see the product in your own environment, you can of course always switch off the dimensions layer.
