Custom product variations
I have a project where the customer will be able to select the colors they want on the product. Example: a baseball hat where the bill can be one color, the top of the hat one color, the inside of the hat one color and the logo one color. Something like this: http://www.picarisplatform.com/picaris-visualization-demos/furniture ... but not with couches.
Normally, we would create a product for each variation (small - red tshirt is one product, medium red tshirt is one product, small blue tshirt is one product... and so on). In this case, I have way to many color options to make this manageable. If I have 1 hat, with 3 different areas that could have a color, and I have 30 colors (and/or patterns) to choose from, I have 30 to the power of 3 products.... that 27000 products for 1 custom product.
If I have 15 products that have this ability to select custom color combinations thats 15*27000 = 405k products... for a simple 15 product display eCommerce store.
So, with all that said, how would you recommend doing this w/o a product per variation? I don't need an sku per color variation.
Thanks for your help!
