Online product configuration drastically decreases design-to-production time. Instead of the traditional team of in-house designers and engineers, the configurator is capable of producing and visualizing the 3D design for the client. This automated workflow allows unprecedented levels of customization at the same cost, leveraging CAM system capabilities and file standardization.
Online configuration allows innovative business models, in which the customer can directly specify selected properties of the product. The client can visually explore the product and get live feedback on items of interest - including price and dimensions. The configurators can be embedded in any website.
