New visualising tool enables customisation of MAN and Neoplan buses
Bus Designer for MAN and Neoplan buses and coaches is a digital configuration tool that enables customisation of the buses. The Bus Designer is available online on the MAN Truck & Bus country websites in six languages.
The first step for Bus Designer users is to choose their preferred vehicle. As well as all the new MAN Lion’s City models, they have a choice of vehicles from the previous city bus generation, the MAN Lion's Intercity and the MAN Lion’s Coach, as well as the Neoplan Cityliner, Tourliner and Skyliner models. They can then choose and test seat types, colours and fabrics for the interior, and customise numerous details of the exterior design including the paintwork. To obtain a good overall impression, the view can be changed, enabling users to view their choices from different perspectives. The various material preview sizes and the 3D view enable textures to be visualised very effectively. In addition, users can configure several separate concepts and save them to return to later. There is an option to compare two configurations with one another and to move continuously back and forth between different suggestions using slide bars. Users can also save favorites.
