Online 3D Product Configurators
Increase conversion rates for bespoke products and get reliable production data while spending less resources on technical sales.
The future of online retail...
Online 3D product configurators are quickly becoming the new standard for online retail.
They help clients understand a complex product when they can't physically be in front of it by allowing them to explore its variations via an online interface.
Furthermore, they can connect to your eCommerce platforms and other external systems such as your ERP or CRM, which makes sure nothing gets lost in translation.
...that's been out of reach for many.
Traditionally, creating online 3D configurators has been a tedious and expensive process.
From the design of 3D assets to the complete implementation, many parts need to be coordinated carefully by very specific talent.
Once deployed, further updates to the product logic result in risky and costly maintenance operations that seriously limit their flexibility.
Is it really custom?
On top of that, most available solutions for building 3D configurators are only able to offer basic variation options, such color changes and a limited number of static accessories.
Even products as simple as a made-to-measure table or lamps cannot easily be displayed via traditional online 3D solutions.
