Allowing a customer to create a product

Hi all, I am developing a store that sells hundreds of products, each with potentially hundreds of variants. The items are sold by the linear metre so I have a selection box with sizes from 0.50m to 25.00m in 0.10m increments.

I would like to implement a way that once my customer has selected the required length and presses Add to Cart, that shopify generates a New product, essentially duplicating the current product but appending a unique code to the end of its description and setting a specific Unit Price for the piece.

I'm sure this is possible and I have read up on creating apps that use Post combined with Products.Json (and I have even successfully used Postman to create a new product), but have no idea how to implement this into my store as all the instructions seem incredibly complicated.

Does anyone know the easiest way to go about this?

Thanks
Jon
