The plastics manufacturer Kunststoffhandel Rexin has built its 40 year reputation on a high level of productivity and personal customer service. To interactively support that service mentality, the idea of a configurator for terrace roofings was conceived. The team of redPlant developed the 3D configurator in WebGL to make customers terrace roofing dreams become reality.

Billions of Possibilities
The user can define the exact width and depth of the canopy, and select from a multitude of materials, colors, and accessories. With three different canopy systems, the 3D Realtime Configurator offers several billion configuration options.
In order to realistically show the physical properties of the materials, we developed special shaders and optimized them for the different platforms.
The individual configuration can then be saved as a link or in a datasheet. All items of the configuration can be placed directly in the shop's shopping basket or be requested as a separate offer.
Due to the complexity of the canopy systems, the implementation of the configuration logic was highly demanding. During the design process, the application ensures that the user can create only valid configurations. If it can be configured - it can be built.
Home Sweet Home
Facade and window colors can be adapted individually to the conditions in the user's home.
Real Time Pricing
Every click results in a real time price check. This provides the user with full transparency at any time.
Choose your Awning
As a new feature the user can choose an integrated awning to the configuration. The feature allows a selection of six different fabric colors and two different frame colors.
Using the "Frame Work" Feature offers the opportunity to add additional pillars to the configuration. This ensures an attachment of every roofing even if the outer wall is not substantially built.
Adjusted Side Walls
The yet existing aluminium side walls offered in two designs, have been amplified with a diversity of wooden side walls. It is possible to add them at both sides of the roofing or only at one side with a selection of heights between 0,9 and 2,1 meters. This leads to a better design adaption between side walls and roofing.
With one klick on the button "Konfiguration" the konfiguration-view changes into a construction-view with all the appropriate dimensioning. This can be considered in a 360 degree view as well as in three different default positions. That optimization faciliates the attachment of the configurated roofing.
The illustration of the canopy is done in WebGL to make it available on as many devices as possible.
All configurations receive an individual URL. The configuration can be reconstructed at any time using this URL.
The Rexin products were integrated in the 3D Realtime Configurator with their configuration logic. This generates several billion configuration options.
The optimized User Interface can be used across platforms.
