Minneapolis — Chief Manufacturing has launched on its Web site the Mountbuilder product configurator, an online tool that walks a user through a logical sequence of steps for building a mount configuration that visually appears before them on their computer screen. Drop distance and weight capacity are automatically calculated as parts are added. A parts list is also generated, with the ability to edit parts and quantities. The tool allows users to log in and create a password so they can save configurations for proposals or future jobs, and create a PDF with image for proposals.
Mountbuilder currently offers a selection of projector-mount configurations. Future phases will include modules for flat-panel wall mounts, carts, stands and monitor mounting solutions. The URL to access the site is www.mountbuilder.com.
