The BRIKL Studio Editor is an intuitive, yet powerful Configuration Management Tool. You can configure the Design Studio with a few clicks, and upload 3D models or new designs with a simple drag and drop.

Getting started

There are two entry points to the Studio Editor.


Entry point 1: Navigate to the Catalog tab and access the Products link. Select a product and click on the Studio Editor tab.


Entry point 2: Navigate to the Design tab, and select the Studio Editor tab. Select the product from the drop down menu in the Studio Editor.


Adding a 3D model

As a first step, a 3D model must be uploaded to the Studio Editor. 

While you can upload your own 3D model, we strongly recommend you to contact BRIKL to create and upload 3D models for you. 


IMPORTANT: If you have created a new product and enabled it to be “custom”, but don’t have digitization files uploaded yet, the Studio Editor will NOT work. Please contact BRIKL for more information.


You can find the 3D model files in the Studio Editor under Studio settings > Assets.  A 3D model has 3 files: obj, mtl and UV map. All three files are required for a correct 3D rendering.


Configuring the Design Studio


a) Designs

Navigate to Studio settings > Design Templates.

Design templates can be created in Illustrator and imported into BRIKL with a simple drag and drop. 

Learn more about Design Templates and how to add them to BRIKL here.


b) Placeholders

Navigate to Studio settings > Placeholders

Placeholders are defined areas or markings where you can enter names, numbers, logos or prints. Adding and defining placeholders is simple and intuitive.

c) Design steps

Navigate to Studio settings > Design Steps

Design steps (or customization steps) allow you  to customize designs in different ways by changing colors and prints, or adding graphics and text.

d) Elements

Navigate to Studio settings > Elements

Elements correspond to the individual parts of your 3D model. You can enable/disable elements and assign color palettes to them.

The individual parts of the 3D model may not correspond to the individual parts of your UV map. 

The Elements tab is used to assign color palettes to elements that are part of the 3D model, but that are not part of the UV map. An example is a garment zipper. Zippers are not part of the UV map (since they are not part of the production pattern or print file), but they are part of the 3D model.


e) Background

Navigate to Studio settings > Assets

You can change the background of your Design Studio by uploading a jpg image. Backgrounds are responsive (with the anchor on the right hand side of your Design Studio). Therefore, if you add for instance a logo to your background, its positioning will be fixed on the right hand size as you resize the screen.
