Once the product has loaded, apply your customized textures.
STEP 3. Select the materials you want to edit by opening the Material panel by clicking on Components tab and then the Materials icon in the left-hand panel.
STEP 4. Import the textures you customized by opening the Inspector panel by clicking the Inspector tab on the right-hand panel, click on the thumbnail beside Diffuse. Click Add Image, and import the glasses frame texture you have edited.
Again on the left-hand panel, click on the Lenses entry in the Materials panel. Add the lenses texture under Diffuse. Under Opacity, you can add the opacity texture that you have edited.
STEP 5. Edit your product information by filling out the details under the Info panel. The Info panel is where you can edit the Product details that will show up in the Shop, such as the Product Icon, markup, search keywords, and more.
