Our 360 product viewer requires a set of standalone JPG or PNG images. In the case of 3D product modeling (Solidworks, etc), it's preferable to pre-render the images upfront for further web use because it still takes hours for powerful CPUs and GPUs to produce photo-realistic imagery. I.e, it's not possible to render a 3d product model with acceptable quality
(e.g for e-commerce) on-the-fly inside a browser. Especially when it comes to mobile devices..
So for the product configurators, our customers usually pre-render all images for multiple options in their 3d design software and then use our viewer API (programming interface) to load published 360 or 3D product views according to user selection.
Here's an old example of in-place re-loading

PS: if you are not using 3D rendering software to produce images, a popular workflow is to hire a graphic designer who can help with color substitution based on a set of original 360 product photography. In other words, there're many companies and contractors out there who would be happy to take your 360 product images and provide you with multiple sets of modified images based on your color options. Or you may also photograph each combination separately.
