New software brings mass customisation to furniture
The production of unique goods at scale is a business model designed to meet the growing individualisation of demand. Mass customisation is a strategic mechanism that can be applied in most business sectors apart from furniture. In this case, a new type of digital innovation is necessary. The EU-funded 3DConfigurator project will make it possible for clients to customise furniture design via their parametric design software FORMBAR. The process of design, conversion into optimal milling data and products will be highly integrated, and mathematical algorithms ensure the functionality of models. The project’s unique application will halve production costs, opening the technology for the mass market.
