Unique: Perfect framing at the click of a mouse

Create and order individual frames with 3D configurator

Kirchen, January 8, 2019 - Pictures are a matter of taste - choosing the right frame is not. Only through a suitable picture frame photos, sketches, drawings and paintings unfold their full effect and give a room a personal touch. Whether at home, in the company, in schools or museums - we cannot imagine walls without pictures. With the newly developed 3D configurator on the website of HALBE (www.HALBE-rahmen.de), the individual production of a frame with or without passepartout can be ordered with just a few mouse clicks. The 3D configurator not only shows almost photo-realistically the created frame free-floating from all sides, but also, if desired, on the wall in a virtually furnished room. Perfect online ordering service is a top priority at HALBE frames.

Living with art is not art

With art what pleases is permitted. However, it depends on the presentation. Often the right choice of frame is crucial to turn an insignificant sketch, painting, holiday photo or other memento into real "eye-catchers". Just which frame goes with which picture? "Before choosing a frame, everyone should think about the desired effect of the artwork," emphasizes David Halbe, managing director of HALBE-Rahmen GmbH.

"Often it is difficult to imagine how the picture will look in the selected frame, whether it is better to frame it with or without passepartout or whether a different frame color might suit better. With our frame configurator you can try and experiment to your heart's content. You simply upload your picture and view the different framings in an almost photo-realistic 3D view."

The right choice of frame

A wide range of design options are available to set the scene for a picture - from the frame size to the choice of material, frame color and profile thickness, and even mounting the picture with or without passepartout. The 3D configurator from HALBE helps to make the right frame choice: Does a rather cool aluminium profile fit or rather a wooden strip? Does a dark bar support the colourfulness of a picture or does it stifle the picture? With the help of the 3D configurator, the art lover is sure to order the right frame for his picture. "Should he nevertheless feel uncertain at one point or another, he will find many tips & tricks in our extensive knowledge area on the homepage," says David Halbe.

Unique: plan and design with 3D configurator

Whether Mac or PC, smartphone or tablet - in just a few steps the right frame of choice is selected and can be viewed in a 360 degree view in 3D. The user puts together the frame for his artwork step by step. First, the profile is selected - there is a choice of aluminium or wooden strips. Then colour and the type of wood are defined. After configuring the glazing, the user defines the dimensions of the frame - whether square or rectangular, portrait or landscape format, there are no limits to creativity. To ensure that the user can see the visual effect of the selected frame at all times, it is recommended to upload a file of the image to be framed and view it in the 3D live preview.

Almost photo-realistically, the frame is displayed in the configured size and design in the 3D live preview. Profiles and dimensions are true to scale and the grain of the wooden frames is perfectly represented.

passepartout: Classic style

At any time, the user can select and deselect whether his picture should be framed with passepartout. If desired, the 3D configurator will suggest an optimal passepartout cut. However, the user can also specify the cutting dimensions, the placement of the cut-out, the cardboard thickness andcolour as well as the passepartout type. "The 3D view converts the specifications in a matter of seconds and shows the user the specified framing of his picture almost photo-realistically and true to scale. We recommend every user to take enough time and try out the different possibilities in order to find a harmonious framing for their work of art," says David Halbe.

3D visualization facilitates the choice of glazing

Almost photo-realistic, the magnetic frames from HALBE are displayed in the appropriately configured size and design in the 3D live preview. Profiles and dimensions are true to scale and the grain of the wooden frames is perfectly displayed. Not only that: different glasses also have a different effect. A frosted glass shows less reflection than a glossy glass. Museum glass, on the other hand, shows almost no reflection with perfect colour rendering. This means that a decision regarding the glazing of the art object can also be made more easily thanks to the 3D configurator. In order to be able to accurately assess the reflectivity of the different types of glass, it is advisable to view the selected frame in the 3D view from different perspectives.
