Choose a CAD system and write a small configurator for testing
First thing when building a configurator is to decide is which CAD system you want to use. Right now paramate supports trCAD, its native CAD system, or Grasshopper 3D for Rhinoceros.
For trCAD find the documentation on the trCAD Documentation page. Tutorials for quick start can be found on the trCAD Tutorials page. From these tutorials you can get your first trCAD script for testing as a configurator.
For Grasshopper there are a lot of resources to be found about making CAD scripts, for example on Wikipedia. Instructions for integrating open parameters in Grasshopper and using it with paramate can be found on the paramate Grasshopper/Rhino CAD backend instructions page.
If you have made your first small configurable CAD file, proceed with the next step.
Set up your test configurator in paramate
In short, follow the steps below to set up your test configurator in the paramate cloud. A more detailed explanation can be found on our Creating Configurators Walkthrough page.
Congratulations, now you have your first test configurator up and running on paramate with a basic HTML frontend.
