Product Configurator for WooCommerce

Beskriuwing

The Product Configurator for WooCommerce allows you to use layers to produce instant visuals for your customers.

Give your customers a great experience, and make your life easy: no need to create many product variations with their images.

Instead, export your layers from Photoshop, a 3D render, or any other source, and allow the user to configure their product using those.

I've tried a bunch of different paid and free plugins, this one is by far the best for me. I will add the price add-on soon. Amazing how many options the free version has. I did have to increase my php memory limit a bit, with the default 32M, uploading new images was no longer possible.
