3D Posts allows you to play with the object in the image.

First Step to Follow:

  • Before you create your 3D post you need to create an object on illustrator, like how I have used my logo and then you need to export or save it as .SVG file.
  • You can make use of Paint 3D and create simple objects that can be saved as .glb file.
  • For you to just learn this quickly without any personalization, you can log in to Flaticon.com for free SVG files, where you can use existing objects like Facebook logo or cartoons and while downloading it save them as .SVG
  • Please note the file size shouldn’t be more than 3MB

After you have your .SVG file, you need to use Vectary and follow this step by step guide to make this journey a lot easier:

Step 1: To begin creating your 3D image, go to Vectary.com and click on ‘start creating’
