Products are what you sell. Hefest Digital to Solid shows 3D previews of your products very close to how they look like in real life. In this section we explain how to adjust and manage presentation of the products to your clients. Preview is important part of the ordering process but it is also important to get the job file(s) correctly prepared for printing. Both steps are secured by Hefest Digital to Solid. You show you customer a 3D preview of the ordering products and receive job file ready to be put into your printing queue.

You can create previews with exact dimensions for canvases, wooden, metal, acrylic boards and papers with different textures. All these media have a variety of different settings which help you to make previews very close to the originals.
