You will be able to save configurations, manage projects, create templates, and quickly configure applications through the Online Product Configurator (OPC). You will not only have access to the OPC, but to the Product Database and Marketing Media Library as well.
Please contact your local Blum representative for more information.
Full access is immediately available with an E-SERVICES login. Fill out the
online registration form here. You will receive an email with a temporary password once you register and will be prompted to change your password once you log in.
Marketing Media Library is where you will find professional photos, product and assembly videos, flyers and brochures, assembly instructions, operating instructions, technical data sheets, logos, presentations, certificates, information about displays and models, and marketing tools for showroom kitchens.
There are a few ways to get the CAD data you need, but one of the easier ways is through the
Click on "Free Search" in the structure tree to the left of the screen. Enter the part number, item number, or description of the product in the "Search Term" field and click "Search." Find the correct product in the search results and click on the blue folder icon. Select the "Download" tab and scroll down until you see the product image labeled "Isometric CAD drawing 3D." You will know you have selected this option when there is a thin red outline. From here, select the desired file format and click "Download."
If there is not a product image labeled "Isometric CAD drawing 3D," this means there is no CAD data available in the Product Database. In this case, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request the CAD data.
Yes! CAD/CAM data is provided on the “Results” page of a Detailed Configuration. There are 2D and 3D options available and there are multiple formats available for download. CAD data can also be found in the Product Database.
Yes! The OPC always reflects the most up-to-date information available. It is automatically updated so you do not have to worry about downloading newer versions of the application. Simply log in and start your configurations.
The Excel-based Planning Tools are a useful service, but they do have limitations. The OPC does not rely on macros like the Planning Tools do and is not limited to a specific operating system. This means you can access the OPC on your desktop computer, mobile device, and tablet. The Planning Tools can only be accessed on a desktop computer and can only work if you have Microsoft Excel downloaded on your computer.
Currently, users are only allowed to enter measurements in metric. However, there is a conversion chart in the toolbar of the OPC to help you convert from imperial to metric. We are working to add the imperial system to the OPC.
Yes! You can always go back to any section of the configuration process, even when you are on the “Results” page. Simply hit the “Back” button or click on the section of the configuration you want to review.
Each product has unique options and features, and the OPC will offer what is available when it is relevant. For example, “Additional Features” will show up for Box systems when a stabilizer rod is suggested for use.
If you have entered a value or option that will not work with the configuration, the application will prompt you with a pop-up message. At this point, you will have to choose to keep the previous selection or change the selection you most recently entered.
Once you get to the “Results” page, in the “Actions” window, you will be able to download and export your data in a PDF format or as an Excel spreadsheet. There will be a list of items from the “Results” page that you can choose to add and/or exclude from the download, such as parts list, planning information, and product images.
You can use the exported data in many ways. For example, you can provide the parts list to your Blum distributor, retailer, or cabinet professional. You can use the planning details for construction reference. You can also use the CAD/CAM data in any type of CAD software, such as Trimble SketchUp.
