BRIKL supports the Object (.OBJ) file format. The OBJ format is a universal 3D model format that is widely used and supported by the 3D image editing industry.
BRIKL is a customization software, not a design software. With BRIKL you can customize the way your 3D model looks by adjusting lighting, textures, and background.
If you are looking to upload a new 3D model to the BRIKL system, you have three options.
Yes, BRIKL 3D configurator software supports UV maps. All you have to do is upload your UV map as an SVG.

The Design Room is your customization software for creating, sharing, and exporting designs. The Design Room is accessible only via the BRIKL Dashboard by admin-users with the right permissions.
The Design Studio is the front-end 3D Configurator app that allows customers to customize a product. You can plug in the Design Studio into our own website or ecommerce platform, by using the Design Now button. You can also easily integrate the Design Studio into a ecommerce BRIKL website.
The Studio Editor allows you to configure the Design Studio. You can define which customization options you want to make available for your configurator on a product level or on a shop level.
The 3D viewer app is not a standalone app, but rather is an integral part of the Design Room.It is a combination of features that allows you to convert a 2D design into a 3D rendering with a simple drag and drop, and share a preview link with your customers.
3D Lead Generation allows customers to submit a request form for the design that they have created with the 3D configurator, and for the shop owner (merchant) to review the request, update the design, and submit a payment link back to the customer.
3D Ecommerce allows customers to add custom products that they have designed with the 3D configurator to their cart, and to checkout and pay for the order online. The order details are submitted to the Shop Owner.
Colors are not added directly to a product. Rather, colors are assigned to materials, and materials are assigned to color zones of a design template.
Go to the BRIKL Dashboard and check the Order tab (in case the order was paid for online) or the Lead tab (in case a request form was submitted).
In order to plugin the BRIKL 3D configurator into your own website, you have three options. You can insert a Design Now button, download a native app for Magento, Shopify (coming soon) or Shopware (coming soon) or integrate seamlessly into a BRIKL native website.
