Have you seen our tutorials?

We have recently created several tutorials that you can follow and become a mass customization expert in no time!

If you follow My First App, My First Drawing and My First Assembly you will know how to create complex applications with dynamic drawings. If you continue with Presets, Test & Debug and User Interface you will learn how to create applications that handle button clicks, mouse clicks and keyboard events.

Documentation and tutorials are living documents and in order to make them as good as possible, we’ve added an edit button at the top right of each documentation page. If you have suggestions on how we can improve, press the button, log in to GitHub and make your change. You will be prompted to create a pull request with your changes, which is just a fancy way of letting us know that you’ve got some improvements.

Good luck on your mass customization path!

Learning DynaMaker

It does not matter if you’re an experienced programmer, a CAD professional or are just getting started creating Dynamic Products; sometimes we all get stuck and could use some help getting back on track. For guidance specific to DynaMaker, we’ve created the official DynaMaker Docs which consists of a Getting Started-guide, tutorials, a FAQ and much more.

TypeScript

When creating with DynaMaker, you’re going to be using TypeScript, which starts from the same syntax and semantics that millions of JavaScript developers know today. You can learn more in the official TypeScript docs.

Debugging

Since DynaMaker is fully cloud based, all development is done from the browser. We recommend Google Chrome, which has excellent development tools that can be used for stepping through your code line-by-line, to get a better understanding of what’s happening. Here’s a great guide on getting started with debugging using Chrome DevTools.

Help us help you!

The DynaMaker team is continuously working on improving user experience and we need your feedback to create the best platform possible! What obstacles are you running in to when working in DynaMaker? Do you have suggestions on things that should change or what new features should come next? We’d love to receive all your thoughts, so please send them in an email to support@dynamaker.com!

A Parametric sofa for the summer

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.

Have a nice summer!

Management Strategy in Digitized Manufacturing

Are you trying to digitize your business and leverage new modern tools for automation and IT? Then we have the tools and know how to help you!

We have an upcoming open webinar at 21/5 15:00 CEST to start address this topic together, and help bring insights to your business. Signup for the Management Webinar here.

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.

Training for Engineers & Makers

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.

Cloud Service for Mass Customization

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.
