Will 3D configurators replace draughtsmen?

In the ever-evolving landscape of 3D configurators and technology, one question seems to linger: ‘Will 3D configurators take over technical designers’ jobs?’ We cannot answer this question with a simple yes or no. Instead, it’s a nuanced answer that embraces different aspects of technology and human creativity. 

A Brief Overview

We’ll start with some context, our 3D configurators are revolutionising the way customers engage with design. They empower users to design their dream wardrobe, pool, table, and more. What sets them apart is the easy transition from online design to in-store purchase. After customers have designed their product they generate a direct quote, this includes a unique code linked to their configuration. Making it possible for them to take the unique code in-store and finish up their purchase with the help of a salesperson. This seamlessly blends technology into a personalised shopping experience.

Addressing the concern

Now you might be wondering, with the rise of 3D configurators, are draughtsmen at risk of becoming disposable? The short answer is: NO. In fact, our 3D configurators are designed to complement the expertise of technical designers, not replace them. 

Eliminating repetitive processes

3D configurators excel at automating repetitive design tasks. Simple projects that might otherwise consume a fair amount of the designer’s time can now be handled by the configurator. This not only accelerates the design process but also allows draughtsmen to redirect their focus towards more complex and intricate projects.

The human touch: irreplaceable creativity

While technology can excel at automating the simple aspects of design. It cannot replicate the unique creativity, intuition, and aesthetic sensibility that technical designers bring to the table. Complex projects that require a nuanced understanding of human preferences and spatial dynamics will always be handled by skilled technical designers.

A vision for the future

Our perspective is clear: technology should be seen as a design partner, not a replacement. 3D configurators empower draughtsmen by handling the routine, allowing them to focus on what they do best – creating remarkable designs that captivate and inspire.
