Hello everybody out there using solidworks –

I’m doing a (free) product configurator (just a hobby for now, won’t be big) for SW2016, EDrawing 2016, Acrobat Reader DC and Excel 2013 in 64Bit in windows 10 system. This has been brewing since Aug, and is starting to get ready. I’d like any feedback on things people like/dislike at I’ve currently used SW2016, EDrawing 2016, Acrobat Reader DC and Excel 2013 in 64Bit in windows 10 system, and things seem to work. This implies that I’ll get something practical within a few months, and I’d like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them

It may work on other versions of SW, Edrawimg, Acrbat reader and Excel, but I have not checked them. Do let me know if you face any issue in running the software. Also I have not checked License Server implementation (Rhino.Licensing.dll) on wild, so please let me know if you face any licencing issue.


This product configurator is based on Excel. Here the User interface and individual design tables are merged into a single workbook. And there there is a JPProdConfigConsoleApp.exe application which shows the user interface on basis of excel file. The user interface approach is a unique approach which I believe has not been done earlier. Also the excel makes this configurator very friendly to engineers.



The attachment zip file ( ) contains 3 folders with examples which has to be extracted so that you get 3 folders once unzipped.



Product configurator example 1 : MyProdConfig1

Description : This is incomplete as model is not there. See IMPORTANT_NOTE.txt file. Without sw model files this project will not run. Once you copy models you need to press "Run.bat".


Product configurator example 2 : MyProdConfig2

Description : This is complete project. Just press "Run.bat".


Product configurator example 3 : UIExample1

Description : This is complete project but highlights only the UI portion. Just press "Run.bat".



Please check it and let me know about the feedback.
