Major Upgrade for Ideal Standard CAD Software

Ideal Standard retailers will find planning and designing much faster and intuitive, following the release of the latest upgrade of the Virtual Worlds Pro CAD software from Logicom, created in conjunction with the major bathroom company.

Paul Frankish, Marketing Director UK at Ideal Standard comments: “We’ve worked closely with Virtual Worlds and the result is a transformation for those retailers looking for a powerful design and selling tool that features Ideal Standard comprehensively”. Ideal Standard has also agreed with Logicom to a continuous process of ongoing updates, to ensure the Ideal Standard catalogues remain current.

Ideal Standard’s complete Concept range are the latest product catalogues to be included in the popular Virtual Worlds Professional 5.8 software, which produces photo-realistic visuals and provides an engaging 3D interactive experience for consumers who want to “walk through” their bathroom before purchase.

One of the attractions of the new Ideal Standard catalogues is the inclusion of Virtual Worlds’ automatic connection points. These eradicate costly mistakes at specification stage, by ensuring only compatible products are specified together. For instance, taps designed for a particular basin will automatically snap into place and a pre-determined selection of WCs, toilet seats and cisterns will automatically connect together, and so avoid specification errors. A feature developed specifically for the Concept furniture range allows Designers to automatically connect or replace items from the range, either in a modular or free-standing format.

Searching is also user-friendly and sophisticated: by range, product type, and size or product name, with search results shown as an instant image. Another time-saving feature is the Virtual Worlds automatic work top function, which means bathroom work and vanity tops are intuitively sized in a matter of seconds.

Ideal Standard’s remaining product catalogues are currently being modelled by Virtual Worlds and are due for launch in the near future.

The news has been welcomed by major bathroom supplier Plumb Center; Barry Parsons, Product Manager at parent company Wolseley UK comments: “We are delighted that the full product range of Ideal Standard, which is our leading bathroom supplier, is now available on Virtual Words, the number one bathroom CAD system”.
