Midland-based BOSTONtec has unveiled a proprietary 3-D configurator program designed to help users to custom build their own modular workstation, including a full selection of accessories. The configurator is available to all users.
The new configurator offers advanced visuals, multiple options, and easy accessory placement. Beginning with a variety of base model types and sizes, users can choose from work surface options, uprights, feet or casters, and more. From there, accessories ranging from shelves, CPU holders, monitor arms, task lights, and others may be added and positioned as desired.
With 24-hour access, the 3-D configurator helps online users browse and create on the go. Each workstation image populated is 3-D and photorealistic in nature, and available in multiple colors and finishes. Users also can zoom-in and out or rotate their creations a full 360 degrees for even more visual detail.
“Planning workstations for specific applications can seem like a daunting process,” says Kelly Wehner, president of BOSTONtec. “There are many variables and options to consider.
“Where do we place shelves, lights, or drawers on the workstation? What accessories are available? Can we fit all the accessories on the station in an efficient way? These are just some of the questions that prompted us to create the 3-D configurator for our users. Now, customers can create their personal modular set-up and see all of the options available to them, in full 3-D display, before those stations are even ordered.”
After creating and personalizing the 3-D model to match their specific needs, the customer will receive a PDF and itemized component list and can submit a request to BOSTONtec for a quote. The online modeling includes 90 percent of the standard options available for cantilevered workstations offered by the company.
“The online configurations also act as a solid foundation for starting conversations about custom designs in applications that go beyond the standard offering,” says Rob Doucette, applications engineer at BOSTONtec. “Our ability to efficiently create custom solutions is what sets us apart when working with our customers.”
