Difference between 2D and 3D Crystals

2D and 3D Difference


2D Side ViewThere are some major differences between 2D and 3D views.  2D stands for “Two Dimensional”. A 2D shape has two dimensions- Length and Breadth. 2D figures are also referred to as plane figures or plane shapes since these figures lie on a flat surface. Any 2D image, such as a jpg, or png image, can be internally engraved in crystal. The resulting 2D image will have a thickness of approximately 3mm. The view of the engraving from the front will be a greyscale replica of the original image, while the side view will be a straight line (similar to the view of a photo from the side). 

The 2D models are pretty impressive, but switching to the 3D view just brings in front a much better experience. Of course, it all depends on your budget. Most of the time, you can easily opt for the 2D models as they are just as interesting. These models are great if you want to acquire a gift on a limited budget. The 2D photos are perfect in this regard because you get to have a high quality that still expresses your ideas.

3D Side View3D stands for “Three Dimensional”. A 3D shape has three dimensions- Length, Breadth, and Height or Depth. 3D crystal images are three-dimensional portraits created from two-dimensional photographs. The 3D photo crystals are bringing in a photorealistic approach. You get to have more angles, and the light refraction does influence the results even more.

 Of course, if you want to stand out with your beautiful image, then a 3D crystal engraving is the right way to go here. Keep in mind that the original image needs to have very good quality. That’s why we recommend you provide a photo that is taken from a good-quality camera. This will help us to make sure that there are no issues and the results will be outstanding because of that.
