The future of CAD for the KBB sector

The Designer ran a great article about CAD in their November issue.  They asked the various CAD companies, including our Mike Vinten, what the future had in store for the KBB sector.

It was that that many of our competitors predicted tools that Virtual Worlds already provides!  Good to know we are ahead of the game.  And there are even more developments just around the corner. 

3D interactive CAD design – available now

The article quoted comments from CAD providers about what CAD would be like in the future : “interactive tools”, “using software online” to “collaborate” with the consumer on designs ,  the concept of  “walking round” a design before you buy, interacting with other design software  and the importance of realistic visual were all mentioned…they ought to try out Virtual Worlds Professional.  These are all standard to the latest 5.8 package www.virtualworlds.co.uk Available NOW!

Collaborative online design with the customer – available now

We agree that a strong on-line design capability will be key for some customers…that is why we are already working with various customers, customising our 2D/3D Planner www.virtualworlds.co.uk to their particular requirements.  For those retailers who want to give their customers scope to outline their own design ideas, before passing them over to a professional, showroom designer to develop into a feasible KBB design, then this software is hugely powerful and user- friendly.  For some we even integrate with pricing, checkout and parts list – all online.

Realistic visuals you can almost touch – available now

Some of our competitors do not seem to rate their own CAD particularly highly! However, from our retailer user comments, it is apparent that Virtual Worlds CAD is so realistic and the 3D interactive facility so engaging, that Designers are now able to create a sense of the ambience in a customer’s kitchen or bathroom, not just fantastic visuals.  The software tools are there to be used.

What next for Virtual Worlds CAD?

Apps, more online solutions… the developers here at Logicom are way ahead. Watch out!
