Do you need a product configurator for your website so that the visitors can interact with your products in 3D and generate new CAD drawings and files? And do you want to take part in the development yourself (otherwise you can click here for expert help)?
Then the DynaMaker cloud service could be the perfect solution for you!
Fast start with Fork, Modify and Deploy
We have standardized and streamlined the development process for setting up an online web app for CAD configuration with the help of our online IDE, lots of templates and example code to start from and an automated deploy and hosting process. You pick a template (we can help with selection) and make it yours with a click (Fork). Then you can modify it and add as much as you like to make it match exactly your product that should be configured (Modify), And with the click of a button you build and deploy it to our hosting service and make it available to the world (Deploy).
Online 3D Visualization and CAD import/export in one tool
To give you the power and control to build fully automated processes from online configuration to on demand customized manufacturing we have combined both the possibility for visible configuration in 3D, with fast and lightweight models, together with the power of working with generation of CAD data. Both extracting parameters and dimensions from user imported 2D cad files (dxf, pdf, etc) to auto generation of 2D/3D CAD files for manufacturing (dxf, step, pdf, etc).
Building a online tool for just switching predetermined sizes is easy. Add a few 3D-models with some nice textures and suddenly you have very visual way for the customers to test different sizes.
But from that simple product picker you can then allow export of 2D-drawings with dimensions, open up for patterns of multiple panels, and allow different downloads for adding to your own 3D-projects. Endless possibilities!
Send us some links with your preferred sizes and we will set you right up with a solar panel online configurator from one of our templates.
Take the opportunity to spend some time together with our engineers to learn how DynaMaker works and how you could become a better developer on the platform! The online IDE for developing and publishing your own 3D configurators and automated CAD customization tools has many features and lots of possibilities. You just have to learn how to navigate all that technology and start using it for your own applications!
The next webinar on the 5th of december will look on how to automatically generate 2D drawings (dxf, pdf) dynamically from whatever parameter the user inputs in a tool.
Upcoming DynaMaker Open Webinars
2019-12-05 (13.00-14.00 CET) Generate 2D Drawings
2019-12-19 (16.00-17.00 CET) Assemblies and Parts
2020-01-16 (13:00-14.00 CET) Creating UI and Workflow
The DynaMaker have lots of templates and projects to start from when setting up a 3D configurator on your homepage. One template is for configuring profiles and creating BOM-lists with customized cutting lengths. Let the customer select and add their profiles and automatically create packages of 3D files (.stl, .step) and bom-lists.
Sounds interesting? Send us a set of dxf files of the profiles you want to configure to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will setup your own version of this configurator and show you how to integrate it with your current homepage!
Summer is closing in here in the north and what could be better than to plan for stimulating wood working projects?
Of course you first need an online tool to interact and explore the parametric possibilities and auto generate all the material lists and drawings. Just hammering away wont do it any more.
A quick glance at a recent open project on the DynaMaker platform shows how you with a few properties and parametric patterns can generate furniture from a standard profile. From chair, to sofa, to flat surface with just a few parameters.
This is a good example of how to get started with building an interactive online customization tool, and how it can be made easy with the help of standardized tools. The time consuming part is usually integrating a tool like this into the quotation/order process of a company. Luckily we are working on standardizing that as well, but for the happy enthusiast its just to hammer away! Let us know if you want to explore this particular open project and perhaps use it for your own project.
With so many new platforms, technologies, and solutions on the market it can sometimes be hard to find the way all by yourself. Therefore we have created a strategy for navigating this and collected a few cases on how this can be done in proper way.
With focus on having an automated flow of information, orders, data through the company and working with software and technology that develops at an exponential speed, we have collected a few cases that can be used for inspiration and comparison when setting your own management strategy.
Guidelines to start with
Don`t reinvent the wheel – Never start from scratch if its not core business. There is a platform available for everything today.
Ensure Accessibility – When everybody is using digital solutions you cannot have internal IT running around patching and installing for everyone manually.
Fast feedback during development – Demand fast results to understand and test core concepts.
Make sure the simple system works first – Well functioning complex systems can only come from well functioning simple systems.
Modules instead of Monoliths – Decouple the IT infrastructure for faster development and long time maintainability
Automated Checks – Make sure that old rules are still valid when developing new
Performance – Make sure to distribute the load in a way that scales
The DynaMaker cloud services is designed to respect these guidelines and be a long term puzzle piece in your digital ecosystem.
To get started with building online dynamic tools and transforming you industry to the modern manufacturing age we offer webinars, online training, on site training and ready templates and examples.
Next upcoming webinar that focus on a general introduction to the DynaMaker cloud service will be held at 24/4. Perfect for you that are curious on how the platform works, how you can use it in your ecosystem of other solutions, and how you can get started!
The webinar will focus on how to get you started with tool building in a standardized way and will be followed by more with more specific focus on different areas.
This year the big industry fair Hannover Messe have partnered up with Sweden and the engineers behind DynaMaker, team SkyMaker, will be there showcasing mass customization solutions for the modern industry.
The fair is on 1/4 to 5/4 so if you are close by Hannover during that week you have an excellent opportunity to come by the Swedish Pavilion in hall 27, and meet with the team in one of our demo stations: Smart Control & Quality (#7). There will be plenty of other interesting Swedish companies present and we hope that you will find the entire pavilion inspiring!
We are now proud to announce that we have released our cloud service for mass customization! Our tools and knowledge that we have been using in the Swedish industry for the last couple of years are now available at the fingertips for everyone!
Building automated pipelines for custom production is hard and have historically been impossible to achieve at a reasonable price. But we have developed tools and methods to change that.
Our tools and our way of working enables affordable custom production and full utilization of the power that modern automated production machines bring to the industry. All bundled up in an accessible way in a modern cloud service built for the next industrial revolution.
DynaMaker is provided as Software as a Service (SaaS) and you can find our different types of accounts under pricing.
We still have lots of more of useful features, integrations and examples that we are currently working on bringing to the cloud service. These will be continuously added to the service. Se we will keep the beta flag for the next couple of months.
Do you need help to get started, training or perhaps use some of our engineers for a jumpstart on your mass customization project? Please contact us at email@example.com and we will find the way forward suitable for you.
