Features of a Visual Configurator

Real-Time 3D Visualization

Real-time 3D visualization is a key feature of a visual configurator that allows users to see their building design come to life. With this feature, users can interactively explore different configurations and customizations in a virtual environment.

They can rotate, zoom in and zoom out to get a 360° view of their building. This immersive experience not only enhances the engagement of customers but also streamlines the design process by providing instant feedback and reducing the need for multiple iterations.

Additionally, real-time 3D visualization helps to reduce errors and miscommunication by giving stakeholders a clear and accurate representation of the final product.

Customization Options

The visual configurator offers a range of customization options to meet the unique needs of each customer. Users can easily select and modify various features, such as dimensions, floor plans and design elements, to create their ideal building.

Additionally, the configurator provides real-time pricing and quote creation, enabling customers to make informed decisions about their custom building. The order management system ensures smooth processing and delivery of orders, and a seamless integration with inventory management systems enables transparency with customers on timelines.

Drag-and-Drop Functionality

The drag-and-drop functionality of a visual configurator allows users to easily manipulate and arrange different elements of a building design. This intuitive feature enables architects and designers to experiment with various layouts and configurations, enhancing the flexibility and creativity of the design process.

With just a few clicks, users can drag and drop walls, windows, doors and other architectural components, making it quick and effortless to create and modify designs. The real-time product visuals provide instant feedback, allowing users to visualize their design choices and make informed decisions. This interactive and user-friendly interface simplifies the design process and increases efficiency.

Case Studies: Successful Implementation of Visual Configurators

Threekit has empowered world-class B2C and B2B companies to grow their business with visual configurator tools. See some examples of how their unique construction and design needs were met:

  • Oak Beams & Frames Direct needed a configure, price and quote (CPQ) solution that integrated with their Shopify store and could capture unique design specifications and generate a personalized quote in minutes — a process that currently took several weeks and tied-up valuable human resources. 
  • Ulrich Lifestyle Structures wanted to modernize and streamline their sales process. They had previously relied on direct contact with a salesperson to complete transaction, and needed a solution to empower buyers to build and buy their own custom structures online.
  • Therma-Tru was launching an innovative new product line, but they needed a way to get customers engaged and inspired, as well as reduce confusion about the product functionality.
