Unreal Engine Product Configurator Power Bootcamp

Improve customer engagement and save costs with real-time 3D configurators.

Visualize products in real time

Learn UE5 product configurator workflows in practice in 5 days

In this UE Product Configurator Bootcamp you will learn how to create high-quality and interactive product configurators in the Unreal Engine. After the training you will be able to create realistic and immersive environments in which you present your products and enable customers to experience and configure them in real time.
We teach you the necessary skills in the material editor, the interactions with blueprints and the animation workflow. We’ll show you how to bring your project to different platforms, including PC, mobile and VR.
During the training, you will develop a prototype of a real-time 3D configurator together in the group, learning all the relevant steps and tools in UE5. On the last day, you will apply the acquired knowledge yourself: With a task given by us, you reproduce all steps in your own capstone project. After the bootcamp you are part of our community and can continue to ask questions and exchange ideas to realize your visions.

5 days professional training

Here you’ll learn how to manage your data and rethink your production pipeline.

We are convinced of intensive learning units.

That’s why we offer the 5-day Animation Power Bootcamp in a format that allows you to acquire a lot of knowledge in a short intensive time and apply it practically in the course.

Our claim is that your invested time can be used as added value in your projects directly after the Power Bootcamp.

The trainers in our courses are all active within the industry. According to our philosophy, this is a basic requirement for practical knowledge transfer.

You learn from experienced professionals which workflow leads to the best result for your project. We empower you step by step, so that in the end you realize the previously unimaginable.
