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.
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.
