The world of 3D design is a whirlwind of creativity, where revisions and refinements are par for the course. But managing these changes, especially in a collaborative environment, can quickly turn into a tangled mess. This is where version control steps in – a game-changer for effective (3D DAM) and content publishing.

Version control, also known as revision control or source control, is the management of changes to documents, code, or in this case, 3D assets. It allows users to track modifications, revert to previous versions, and collaborate with team members more effectively. Version control provides a structured framework that ensures consistency and accountability, particularly when multiple team members are working on the same assets.

Imagine collaborating on a complex 3D model with your team. One team member tweaks the lighting, another adjusts the texture, and before you know it, you're unsure which iteration is the 'final' one. Here's where echo3D's 3D version control comes to the rescue.

echo3D's version control acts like a timeline for your 3D assets, automatically saving every change made. This allows you to:

  • Track Changes with Ease: See exactly who made what modifications and when. This fosters clear communication and accountability within your team.
  • Revert to Previous Versions: Did someone accidentally delete a crucial texture update? No worries! With a few clicks, you can revert to a previous version and pick up right where you left off.
  • Compare Versions Side-by-Side: Unsure which lighting variation works best? Compare different versions of your model side-by-side to make informed decisions.

Version control on echo3D goes beyond just looking back. You can actually schedule future updates to your 3D content. This allows you to:

  • Planned Content Rollouts: Plan the rollout of new features or asset updates in advance, ensuring a smooth transition for your users.
  • Real-Time Content Updates: Make edits to your 3D models and see them reflected in your applications or games instantly – no need for re-deployment.
