Moogue are based in the Netherlands, they create customizable phone cases using a 3D printer.
Using DriveWorks Pro as a Sales Configurator enables Moogue to offer custom designed phone cases online, to exact specifications.
We spoke to Thijs Vernooij to find out more…
“We experienced in our own lives that everyone wants the freedom of choice of the products we use every day. The people don’t want the standard or mainstream products anymore. Just by coincidence, we were talking about this and decided to roll the idea out for creating customized products.”
“Our target are unique people with a strong character, old and young and those who know what they like.
On top of that, we’re also facing companies who would have their logo, or company profile on our products – just like DriveWorks.”
“We believe that consumers really know what they want and what they don`t want. That’s why we’ve created a platform where you can design your own products. The first result of this, is www.3dphonecase.com“
“The whole idea and project has been running for about 3 years now. Starting the business and creating the website took about 12 months developing time.”
“It’s still quite a lot of work because we want to have a perfect fit and protection of our cases, so every phone needs a bit of developing time. We are improving our projects to decrease the time to market.”
“Basically SolidWorks, DriveWorks, and some other website, webshop and Microsoft techniques.”
“The software we chose gave us the opportunity to create and develop our plans. It covered 3D-design, automated creation of models, and the web-based view for our customers.”
“With lots of trial and error, and great support from Design Solutions, our DriveWorks Reseller.”
“We are printing at a location in the Netherlands”
“To decrease the delivery time, we might print on different locations in the world. We will only do this though if we are sure that the quality will be the same or better. This is very important for us.”
“The accuracy we need for our products is very high. We can’t just use the home desktop printers for our product so we are using professional HD SLS 3D Printers.”
“Normally it takes about 24 hours to print a full batch, cooling down time included.”
“We are still looking for smart and creative people who would like to work together with us. Not only for creating cool designs, but also have software and website talents.”
“Our plan is to launch many more products and sites where people can create their own product.
We are facing a future where everyone wants to personalize and design their own products.
We are looking for the next product to add to the Moogue brand, while also adding more designs and other brands to the phone cases website.”
