Wayfair 3D University is a key initiative to teach our suppliers how to generate 3D models in a fast, scalable, and cost-effective manner. Our goal is to share what we’ve learned, provide a comprehensive overview of our modeling standards and tools, and empower our suppliers to create high-quality models. The 3D assets we teach our suppliers to create can be used on our website, in AR applications, in “shop the room” features, and more.

In addition to providing digital content in a fast and cost-effective manner, 3D modeling also enhances the shopping experience. High quality models are indistinguishable from photographs, and can be leveraged in applications beyond the product display page. New experiences like AR applications and “shop the room” features mean that customers can engage with products in more ways than ever before.

Wayfair 3DU is comprised of a structured curriculum, tailored trainings, and dedicated support from Wayfair’s in-house 3D team. Our instructional documents and tutorials teach modelers of all skill levels to create photorealistic 3D models, and our modeling teams provide valuable feedback on assignments throughout all stages of the program. We are committed to teaching processes and practices that will show suppliers how to meet our best-in-industry standards.

Wayfair 3D University is currently only available to Wayfair suppliers.
