In 2011, Treston launched the 3D Configurator, an online tool designed to make designing a workstation easier than ever before. This interactive design tool allows users to configure an entire work bench according to their specific needs. In 4 easy-to-follow steps, the user selects their items and watches the work bench come to life right on their screen! 

Once satisfied with their design, the user submits their configuration for a speedy quote and parts list. The Treston 3D Configurator is free to use, requires no software downloads, and works with virtually any device. Treston even has an iPad app for the tool, called iBench.

In the 8 years since it was first debuted, Treston has worked to perfect the Configurator and the workstation ordering process. Every year, additional products are added, including new bench platforms, new accessories, and a variety of cabinet and trolley add-on items. Treston also works hard to improve the user experience by improving the look and functionality of the Configurator.

Coming soon – the Treston 3D Configurator will send instant pricing! Treston’s sales team has always responded quickly to requests for quotes. Now, that process will be instantaneous. After the user completes their design, they will receive an email with a list price quote. A Treston representative will then follow up to assist with any questions.

With the Treston 3D Configurator, designing a workstation has truly never been easier!

Follow these four simple steps to design your very own custom workspace.

  1. Start by choosing the workstation frame best suited for your application. A variety of frame options are available for different tasks and environments. Among the bench platforms is the ever-popular Concept workbench, available in manual, hand crank and motorized height-adjustment options.

  2. Step 2 expands on the frame style with the selection of bench size and work surface type. Treston offers many options to choose from.
  3. Next, select uprights if need. Uprights allow for attachment of accessories above the work surface, such as shelves and monitor arms. Uprights are available in varying heights and widths. If uprights are selected, you then have the option of adding upright accessories. These accessories can be placed in 6 positions along the height of the upright.
  4. The final step completes the workstation with additional accessories. These accessories include drawer units, casters, chairs, trolleys, and many more!

At any time in the design process, you can rotate your configuration or zoom in for a closer look. Once you are satisfied with your design, a PDF with parts list and the drawing will be sent to you by email.

 

This tool has been a great benefit for our customers and sales team alike. It is a quick and easy way for users to generate a 3D image of their ideal bench. It is a much faster process than the traditional way of ordering, where items are selected from a catalog and guidance is usually necessary to select the correct parts for the application.
