Title: Configurator output
Post by: Arian Shamil on August 25, 2017, 03:59:59 am
I'm happy to be the first who post in this forum area :)

Anyway...I've done my first config, seen it on presentation mode...is it possible to "pack" all the configurator to send it to a client?

Something like for a Keyshot VR (Now XR)

Thanks in advance

I have this exact question. If I can provide this interface online it would be amazing.

(Sorry for not providing any additional info, I just hope this raises the visibility of the topic.)

I asked this of Henrik recently it is something they are looking into but not without issues. If it is done like the XR then the amount of frames that need to be rendered will be huge but at least possible. It could alternatively be done and be cloud real time rendering.

Anyway, we would like to see it! Would be great to send out for product assessments

We have many ideas to take this initial implementation much further.
Distributing a "Configurator Package" and having a dedicated standalone viewer for non KeyShot users is very high on our to-do list.

Keep the feedback coming! :)

I know you are already offering the Toaster demo with the recording, but could you offer the Seat demo as well?

Hi Dries,
So at the moment there is not an "output" for the config?
Personally, I'd love to have a configurator package / standalone viewer to distribute it to the final client which often doesn't have keyshot and more often too want only the final product (rendering animation, XR or in this case configurator....)
This thing is really important because without that, the configurator option is yes amazing ( I LOVE IT) but useless if it is not possible to send it to a client...

Thanks again Dries
Hope this feedback is important becuase I was really waiting for the configurator and I'm already ready to start with some projects, but unable to finalize them... ;)

Have a great day
ARian

Hi Arian,

Correct, the only distribution option right now is to save the scene as a ksp and send it to another KeyShot Pro user.
We are aware of the limitations and a standalone viewer is a very high priority for us. Your clients should not be required to own KeyShot to experience the configurations you build for them.

I've just bought the upgrade to pro - looking forward to experimenting with Configurator!

Is it possible to set this up as a selection of stills shots like a car configurator online for instance, e.g. have various camera positions set up and selectable as part of the configurator? And then ideally be able to send this to a client as a standalone package. They can view e.g. side, top, 3/4 views etc and mess around with various geometry sets and materials from pre configured sets.

That would do me - they don't need to move around the model in 3D without me  ;D

I'm really surprised that nobody is writing anything about the configurator dedicated area here into the forum.......

it is an amazing feature and now with the viewer is also usable!

Can't wait to see the webinar about config/viewer combo :)

Thanks Luxion :)

I am sorry, but where is the viewer visible to send to someone who doesn't have Keyshot? When I render a configurator file, it only outputs .jpg and .meta files.

Is there someway to combine them into a viewer that is standalone?

Our marketing team now wants to know how to take the configurator, pre-render images and export to a web page so they can make it customer facing product configurator (Build and Price).  Is that end goal is somewhere on the KS roadmap?

Sorry to revive an old thread, but is this feature still in the pipeline?

Yes, Web Configurator output will be available in KeyShot 9.
There will be a new 'Web Configurator' Output mode for Configurator rendering in the Render dialog.

The ouput will be an HTML file (together with all required images, metadata, javascripts, css file etc.) with an interface that matches the one you see in Presentation Mode in KeyShot.

So yes, it is coming. :)

Awesome. Happy to beta test if you need volunteers, as we have extensive experience delivering web-based product configurators for clients.

Yes, Web Configurator output will be available in KeyShot 9.
