UR3 interactive web-configurator with CAD

I have built a prototype web-configurator with CAD for the UR3 model here. Its just a 4 DOF experiment with very few options.

Im looking for feedback on what would make something like this more than an experiment and actually add value for the robotics community.

UR_DynaMaker_prototype

The prototype can be tested here or easily embedded on another page if that makes sense: DynaMaker

Some initial thoughts:

  1. What exports would be interesting for an arm? CAD-parts? 2D-drawings? Source code templates?
  2. Would anyone use customizable grippers that you can download and 3D-print (or buy)? Perhaps there exist gripper brands that would suite this?
  3. Is 4 DOF enough or do you need all degrees computed through inverse kinematics?
  4. Could a web-interface control a robot (digital twin) somehow? Would that make sense?

Grateful for any thoughts and feedback.
