Collection Taxonomy vs. Asset Specific Metadata

echo3D allows you to add data to an overall collection as part of the collection taxonomy, as well as to individual assets within a collection. For both collections and individual assets, echo3D supports adding metadata entries, tags, linked files, and linked free text.


A Metadata Entry is a pair of one key and one value. e.g., key scale and value 2.

The Collection Taxonomy contains data entries that are applied at a collection-level and/or to all content assets in the project. e.g. a data entry with key scale and value 2 will double the scale of all content assets.

The Asset Specific Metadata is a set of data entries associated with a single asset in your collection. e.g. a collection of data associated with just the 3D crystal asset.


echo3D supports adding tags to collections and specific assets. When uploading a new asset, echo3D will first use AI to auto-generate tags and add them to your asset. You can then manually add more tags to your asset or your collection.
