What’s the next big thing in web design? 3D and AR. Interactive 3D and immersive augmented reality (AR) powered experiences are no longer a thing of the future. It’s within arm’s reach of designers, brands, and businesses that want to keep up with changing customer expectations.
Today we’ll introduce you to BRIOXR, an online 3D and AR design creation and publishing platform that can help you enhance your website or online design portfolio. It has a manageable workflow and a simple UI and that any web designer can almost instantly understand.
What you need to get started?
Literally, just a web browser and an internet connection are all that you need. BRIO is a design website app built from scratch on WebGL technology. BRIO is cloud-based, so everything is online. You can access your 3D projects from a device, collaborate in real-time with your colleagues and team, get feedback from clients and also embed your 3D design online with ease.

3D content creation is not the same as 3D modelling anymore. People often think that one should be an expert or a developer to create 3D or AR content. The truth is “No”. With BRIO, you can combine 2D and 3D elements to create interactive scenes easily or simply assemble a scene from libraries of ready-made 3D assets. All without any editing of the geometry. BRIO has a built-in library of 100’s of assets for 3D and AR content creation. You get access to a variety of ready-made 3D objects, materials, textures, and professionally designed lighting and camera preset.
Embed 3D elements with AR preview for product demos
Interactive 3D and AR product demos are very useful if you want to focus on more website engagement or conversion on your e-commerce site. As E-commerce businesses continue to grow, they look for better ways to gain a strong online presence, engage new customers and beat the competition. 3D and AR have the power to bring authentic real-life experience to the visitor.
If you are an E-commerce seller, then you know product images are the first thing customers notice on your website. If a picture is worth a thousand words, AR is worth a thousand pictures. This is why big companies like Google and e-commerce brands like Ikea, Adidas, etc. use AR so that their customers see their products in their own homes. This interactive view and ability to scale products in real-time speeds up the decision-making process and reduces product returns.
Easily embedded in any Website or Social Media
BRIO opens a whole new world of possibilities for business. BRIO scenes can be easily embedded in any website. You can add product scenes to your e-commerce stores on Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Amazon, etc. BRIO also works with web design platforms like WordPress and WIX. Brio offers instant sharing. Share your work, designs or product scenes on any social media platform with a simple link.
Accessible Augmented Reality
Not every online store has the budget to build its own AR application. With today’s possibilities of web browsers and the technology BRIO has, it’s not so necessary. Why build a separate app for something as simple as viewing 3D content in the real world, when everyone can access it directly by browsing your website? Learn how to embed 3D content and add 3D product configurators for your website with BRIO.
AR is more accessible than you might think. Creating Augmented Reality projects isn’t as difficult as you may expect. Anyone can create Augmented Reality in BRIO – with no coding skills required! You can animate assets — be that images or 3D models — in a number of ways. You can make them move across the canvas, rotate, fade in, fade out, bounce, and change in scale or opacity.
BRIO works on all devices and browsers
Apple turned millions of iPhones and iPads into AR devices with a single iOS update. They introduced a USDZ format used in ARkit for augmented reality preview. Google introduced a similar Scene Viewer AR solution for Androids using GLTF 3D format.
BRIO supports both Apple and Android technologies. You can easily embed BRIO content as an iframe code into your website. This is an opportunity for every web designer to implement AR on their website. Desktop visitors can see interactive 3D content on your website. Smartphone visitors have the same 3D experience, plus they can try it in augmented reality directly from their browser. No installation or downloading of a third-party app is required.
