The involvement of 3D industrial animation has grown rapidly and has become more important to the manufacturing industry as a whole, the reason because it represents intricate industrial equipment & products in the simplest way possible. 

Industrial animation is proven to be one of the most adopted solutions to educate new employees and customers about technical processes while making a great impression. 

The good part is animation video will take care of everything while saving you from having to explain technical ideas and run the danger of seeming difficult.


What is 3D Industrial animation?

Industrial animation showcases industrial equipment or products inside out! 

As per the research, the market for 3D animation will grow to 48.78 billion by 2026. 

With industrial animation, it becomes easy for manufacturers to show the entire production line & the interior of products smoothly. 

Unlike those traditional explanatory videos where it becomes impossible to understand even the important details of machines and products. 

The main highlight of 3D industrial animation is that lets you see the specifics areas such as parts used to manufacture the products. 


3D industrial animation in the manufacturing industry

It is not at all possible to disregard the importance of 3D animation in the industrial sector. The most successful way to highlight any technical product or process with its functioning, features, and other technical details is 3D industrial animation

Along with that manufacturers can also can use industrial animations to show the real functionality of their goods and to promote them in marketing efforts. In addition to that, 3D animations are used by many industries such as the oil and gas, automotive, construction, and architecture sectors to illustrate the work or production processes, assembling of their product, and constructions.


Advantages of 3D industrial animation

It is the time to give your audience the ability to virtually experience your industrial product and equipment,

Visually Attractive: Creating realistic and interactive 3D animated videos allows you to visualize complex ideas or concepts from every angle and explore different configurations and functionalities. Before investing in physical prototypes or manufacturing processes, this helps you identify potential errors or limitations.

Train employees the right way : Do you remember that old saying “A picture is with a thousand words”? Well, 3D industrial animation is worth a million, it becomes convenient for new employees to understand how equipment works when they see it in action and this thing is not at all possible when referring to manuals. This can also lead to minimal wastage and a much more efficient process.

Market your Capabilities : After the models have been textured, the team will continue rigging. This is where the team will create the underlying structure that will be used to animate the models.
Rigging is a highly technical stage that requires a deep understanding of 3D rigging techniques. The rig designed during this stage will be used to control the movement of the models during the animation stage.

Animation: Industrial 3D animation can highlight the machinery and product in both ways – Impressive and Informative. The more precisely you showcase your manufacturing processes or technical products in front of investors, customers or partners the better the authority it will create in the eyes of them.
This will put you ahead of your competitors, which is what we all want.

Simplifies technical processes or parts: You have a business of manufacturing engineering parts, now it is not always necessary that all your clients know how the engineering parts operate, yes they do have an idea of what they are looking for.
3D industrial animation can help you explain complicated parts or processes of equipment.

Encourage the audience to act: It is evident that people respond quickly to 3D animation because it makes things look clear and natural and that is the reason why a 1-2 minute video animation can generate up to 70% more sales than just a simple pictures.

Technical animation without letting them realize will instil a powerful message into their minds and that message further will push them to take action and generate sales.

Saves time & money: If a minute video can do the thing, why spend a lot more money on training the staff? The video will replace the entire training part right from educating employees to promoting the company’s principles, and processes, or demonstrating how a specific machinery works by directly impacting your budget. At the same time, videos will generate a higher ROI than pictures overall.

Helps in training and educational purposes: Animated videos are not only for customers but are the best source of learning for industrial when it comes to employees and trainees.

For example, the oil and gas industry is very technical, with each step being important and potentially causing technical problems. Therefore, it is important that all the new employees carefully understand the fundamental ideas, machinery operating processes.


Examples of 3D industrial animation videos

What are examples of industrial 3D animation examples? Below mentioned are the all examples created using 3D industrial animation. 


3D Industrial Animation of PFS filling and stoppering Machine

We have created this 3D industrial animation video to showcase the capabilities of Durva Machinery’s technologically advanced PFS filling and stoppering machine. This animation provides a clear and comprehensive view of the entire process right from the start: The automatic tube loading conveyor, PFS nest lifting operation, robotic arms PFS filling & stopping operation to the final vacuum stoppering of the syringe and tube collection conveyor. 

By utilizing this industrial animation, Durva Machinery can effectively communicate its PFS machine’s technical expertise and user-focused design to a larger audience.


Industrial Process Animation of Eddy Current Separator – Magnetic Separator

Arise 3D has created this detailed industrial process animation video to explain how Eddy’s current separators work.

This process of animation will showcase a short belt of conveyors that has its drive located at the return end and a high-speed magnetic rotor system installed at the discharge end. When the rotor spins an electric current will be induced into the conducting metals of the flow by creating a magnetic field that opposes the field created by the rotor, repelling the conducting metals over a pre-positioned splitter plate.


Installation Animation of Formwork Scaffolding

We have created this high-quality wall-formwork animation video that will make you see how DEK panels, joint clamps, PVC pipes, tie rods, wallers, and anchor nuts come together for efficient wall-formwork assembly. 

For beams, columns, and slab foamwork you can easily visualize the setup of props, tripods, H-20 primary and secondary beams, and film-faced shuttering ply. Our 3D animations break down complex processes into simple steps.

Depending upon Arise 3D’s installation animations, you can minimize confusion, save time on-site, and empower your team to confidently construct high-quality formwork.


Industrial product animation of Pneumatically Operated Drawer Magnet

We have created this high-quality wall-formwork animation video that will make you see how DEK panels, joint clamps, PVC pipes, tie rods, wallers, and anchor nuts come together for efficient wall-formwork assembly.

Frequently Asked Questions

1 ) How are industrial 3D animations used in training and education?

Industrial 3D animations are highly effective for training. They can simulate real-world scenarios, demonstrate complex procedures, and provide interactive learning experiences without the risks associated with on-the-job training.

2 ) Are there any limitations or challenges associated with in-house industrial 3D animation?

In-house industrial 3D animation presents several challenges and limitations, primarily revolving around high costs and the need for specialized skills. Procuring the necessary high-end software and hardware can be expensive, with ongoing licensing fees adding to the financial burden.

Moreover, creating high-quality animations requires a team of skilled professionals proficient in advanced software and knowledgeable about industrial processes. Training existing staff to develop these specialized skills can be both time-consuming and costly, further complicating the in-house approach.

In-house teams might also lack the creative diversity and industry trend exposure that specialized external studios offer.
