In this article, we will focus on Konfigs, which are the final entities that combine all of these building blocks into a product configurator.

What is a Konfig and how does it work in Konfig?

A Konfig is a product configurator created using the Konfig content management system. It combines 3D models, materials, textures, and environments into an interactive application that allows users to customize and configure products.

In order to create a Konfig in Konfig, you will need to upload 3D models, textures, and environments, and create materials using the material editor. Once you have these building blocks, you can create a Konfig by following these steps:

  • Define the structure of the Konfig by organizing the 3D models into a hierarchical structure. This includes adding objects and groups to the scene, and assigning meshes and materials to each object.
  • Define the options that the user can change in the Konfig. This includes adding options to swap out objects or groups, change materials, or input numeric values.
  • Group options into steps to make it easier for the user to understand and navigate the Konfig.
  • Edit the settings for the Konfig, including pricing, environment, and camera settings.

Once you have created your Konfig, you can publish it on your website, allowing users to interact with it and configure products. The Konfig content management system provides a wide range of tools and options to help you create professional and engaging product configurators.
