CS Configurator - automated product configurations

Automate design and documentation of customized product configurations

CS Configurator - based on Inventor and Forge

CS Configurator The custom software CS Configurator is a tool that helps to automate repetitive tasks and product variants. It helps to streamline and speed up the whole business process from request to delivery of a manufactured customized product, eliminating unproductive activities. The parametric structure of a manufactured product is automated using a set of rules and functions.

CS Configurator is a successor to the discontinued Autodesk Inventor ETO and Configurator 360. It is a professional tool for Inventor exceeding the possibilities of iLogic rules. Makes use of Autodesk Forge (Viewer and Design automation). The delivery of this solustion consists of two parts - the core of the Configurator, as a necessary component of the entire solution, and a tailor-made implementation for each customer. The end-users can optionally use the Online web client to customize designs.

    • The store waits long time for documents for offers
    • Increased demands on the whole structure due to the creation of product variants
    • Wrong estimates of product prices
    • High rate of unnecessary remodelings of same or similar components
  • Needs:
    • Speed up design process
    • Simplify typing data
    • Remove routine tasks
    • Generate "real" data
    • Ensure formal correctness
