This is one of many template projects available for a quick start with customization in DynaMaker. Its a simple one step configurator that enables parametric customization of a green house with automated CAD exports.
Pull the sliders in the toolbar to the left and use 3D navigation with the mouse by right clicking, middle mouse clicking or using the mouse scroll wheel.

The CMS platform WordPress is one of the most popular ones to build your homepage on the web. We thought it might be suitable to make it easier to embed a Dynamaker project direct on a WordPress homepage. Therefore we have just launched a plugin of our own to WordPress!
Even if the most common approach for configurator builders is integrating it with an more advanced e-commerce platform or customer portal we hope this can provide a good starting point for most companies in any stage of their digitization process.
Most online applications work together with other systems and solutions to help users design and customize products online. Therefore they almost always have to be connected to a homepage, e-commerce, ERP, customer portals and similar to do their intended work.
As a fast and standardize way of connecting the applications your create with DynaMaker to these type of platforms we have now released plugins in the developer dashboard!
First out is the two plugins SendGrid and Auth0, providing e-mail service and authentication for your project.
These two provide a quick way of handling user interaction when you only have a homepage and dont yet have a full fledged e-commerce platform or customer portal taking care of things like theese.
How to use SendGrid plugin in a DynaMaker project
Open your project in DynaMaker
Edit UI in your DynaMaker project and create a checkout button in your project that should trigger an email to sales
Create an account at SendGrid and create an API key there
Create an e-mail template at SendGrid of how you e-mail should look and
Go back to DynaMaker and activate the SendGrid plugin in your project dashboard.
Add your api key to the plugin input field.
Open Edit UI in the DynaMaker project and go back to your checkout button
Import PLUGINS module under the “edit imports”
Access the SendGrid plugin api with PLUGINS.SENDGRID.sendMail( … ) with the proper templateId and content matching what you setup in SendGrid
Pres SAVE & UPDATE and test the checkout button in the editor
Now on Thursday (19/3) at 16:00 CET we have an upcoming webinar to learn how to setup an assembly and let rules and logic automatically place components in DynaMaker. Please join in by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or read more about our other upcoming webinars at our open webinars page.
We will look into some example cases of how things can be done, explain components an instancing, show you how to work with a tool like DynaMaker and discuss together different options and possibilities.
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).
A lot has happened with the DynaMaker platform since it was first released. We really appreciate that you, our wonderful users, get back to us with suggestions on how to improve. Your feedback has been a large part in moving the platform forward since the beginning!
Recently we have been busy giving the project dashboard an updated design and some new functionality such as file upload and texture creation (more about that in a future post). We would love to hear what you think about the new design, so if you have not already, log in and try it out yourself!
Note: If you still see the old design it is most likely because your browser has cached the old version. Try doing a hard refresh (ctrl+F5/shift+F5/⌘+F5).
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 email@example.com and we will setup your own version of this configurator and show you how to integrate it with your current homepage!
