Craft Maestros, led by Akansha Dixit, is one such example of a successful venture leveraging 3D immersive technologies. The company uses 3D scanning and 3D printing to produce unique, customised products for their customers. They have seen a huge increase in their sales and customer satisfaction since incorporating this technology into their business model.
Dixit shares her perspective that handicrafts have always been better experienced when customers can look at and feel the product before buying. With 3D immersive technologies in place for online shopping platforms, this gap has closed significantly to facilitate a smoother purchasing experience. Consequently, more time is spent exploring the site thus leading to an increase in sales with reduced customer complaints due to greater understanding of products prior purchase.

AR for Used Cars
Last month, GigaCars, the country’s first park-and-sell marketplace, partnered with HelloAR to give used-car buyers an immersive experience by using augmented reality (AR) technology. Buyers can see a 3D representation of the car they’re interested in, as well as get a 360-degree view of the interior and exterior.
