3D assembly tips for office furniture

Settings - adjustment - configuration - everything explained in 3D

The same questions arise again and again with certain office furniture. How are hinges installed or drawers aligned correctly? How are height-adjustable desks reset to the basic setting? In order not to have to laboriously explain these questions by phone over and over again, professionally created assembly tips were created as 3D animations. Thanks to these short assembly clips, customers can view this information on the furniture manufacturer's YouTube channel and get started right away, not only in the home office.

3D assembly tip correctly assemble the flap fitting of a wall cabinet

A flap fitting / hinge from a wall cupboard was explained as the first 3D animation video in a whole series. In the past, the sides of this folding hinge were repeatedly reversed. Because the hinge can be used both with a flap upwards and with a flap downwards. Depending on the version, the hinges must be aligned and installed differently.

The exact orientation in which the hinges must be positioned was shown in detail, preventing them from being mixed up.

3D assembly tip correctly aligning drawers

Aligning a drawer in a chest of drawers is not immediately feasible for everyone. With the right instructions, the end customer can do it quickly and easily in his office. For this reason this 3D animation was produced.

It explains step by step how the drawer must be correctly inserted and fixed in the pull-out rails in the sideboard. Also which adjusting screw has to be turned in order to properly adjust the drawer.

Meeting via video call

In the run-up to each video production, a joint meeting was held online. In this video call, one employee from the marketing department and one from the technology department were represented on the customer side. This was extremely effective, as marketing and technical details could directly clarify questions about the visual representation with the technician. In half an hour everything was discussed in a nutshell and the animation creation could start.

From the illustrated storyboard to the finished assembly video

At the beginning of the animation creation there is a coordination with the customer. What should be shown? Which assembly steps are important? What should be explained in detail? All of these questions flow into a first rough brief description of the process. An illustrated storyboard is then created on this basis. In this storyboard, all important assembly steps are already shown as they can be seen in the later animation. As a customer, you can see in advance what the later video will look like and, if necessary, incorporate correction requests.
