Business Challenges

Addictive Pixel had an industry leading client that needed a solution to store, manage and design 3D scenes.

The solution had to include different user levels such as admin, user admin and singular user. It also needed to have future adaptability so that it could be used for other customers with similar needs.


Why us?

As the solution heavily relied on knowledge of 3D assets, creative inputs and render speeds, Addictive Pixel looked at Firemind for their experience in the field.

They needed a partner that could not only build a cloud solution to solve their client’s problem, but understand the subtleties of the design process and be forward thinking in their approach.


Our solution

Firemind’s solution used a suite of different AWS services such as AWS Lambda, AWS API Gateway, Amazon S3 and AWS Batch.

In order to serve the content for this application, CloudFront was used as it allows AWS API gateway to connect to most of the AWS Lambda resources necessary. CloudFront also used Amazon S3 to display static content. The AWS API gateway was configured to use rest APIs which have edge optimised endpoints.

As part of the solution, we needed thorough authentication for all users. To do this we used AWS Lambda to authenticate the user and then set the user’s sessions. We stored these sessions in DynamoDB due to the importance of the ‘time to live’ feature.

For the UAM section of the application we used AWS Lambda, RDS and AWS API Gateway. RDS was used to store user, scene and asset information. The scene and asset information also correlated to S3 objects. AWS Lambda was used to query the database in order to save new information and display this data on the frontend.

In terms of the 3D visual studio, we used ThreeJS to create most components, with assets and background images pulling from S3 using signed URLs. The render section of the editor incorporated multiple AWS components. This allowed it to run a python script on a container.

Finally, we incorporated CloudWatch logs to monitor AWS Batch and AWS Lambda. This enhanced any future troubleshooting if an error occurred within a render.

Added value

Addictive Pixel now had a scalable application that allowed for scene creation within a visual 3D editor as well as a user-friendly UAM. This saves the client time as well as centralises assets, user access and storage.
