Look for platforms that offer models in standard formats compatible with Clip Studio, such as .FBX, .LWO, or .OBJ. From realistic human figures to whimsical creatures and even intricate objects, you’ll find an abundance of 3D models to suit your artistic needs.

Once you’ve obtained the 3D models you desire, integrating them into Clip Studio is a breeze. The software allows you to import and manipulate 3D models with ease, providing intuitive tools to rotate, scale, and position them accurately within your canvas. I will be using a futuristic street lamp.

But hey, listen up! If you wanna be able to reuse that 3D object in the future, it’s gonna be a smart move to create a 3D material out of it. Yeah, that’s right! By doing that, if you ever need that 3D object again, you can simply add it from your 3D materials library. Pretty handy, huh? And here’s the real kicker, you can do this with any 3D object. It’s gonna come in super useful for objects like street lights, signs, and street cameras. So remember, don’t miss out on this cool trick!

Clip Studio also enables you to apply various materials and textures to your 3D models, ensuring they blend seamlessly into your 2D artwork. With just a few clicks, you can change the appearance of characters and objects, adding depth and realism to your illustrations, but that is for another day.

So, to add the cool lamp to our library, first we gotta open up Clip Studio Pro. Once it’s up and running, we need to open Modeler. Modeler is this awesome app in Clip Studio Pro that lets you convert meshes into this special format so they can be reused as 3D materials in your library.

To make a sweet new 3D material, just click on File/New and boom, a little pop up window will be like, “Yo, what kinda work you wanna create?” For this wicked example, choose create 3D object. Then click on Object Configuration/Root Node. At the bottom of the window, you’ll see some sick options like Add New, Add from File and Add from Library. Since we got our futuristic street lamp all ready to go, let’s find that file in our project folder and open it up. Easy peasy!

Once you’ve opened up the super cool street lamp of the future, it’s time to add your stuff to the library. Just click on File and select “Register new material.” Give your material a cool name and pop it into the 3D library to keep things organize. Click “ok” you’ve successfully added a brand new 3D object to your library. Proceed to open Clip Studio Paint create a new project and drag your new futuristic street lamp, into the screen.
