Coohom, a developer and provider of digital design tools for designers, retailers and manufacturers, has launched the Kitchen & Bath feature, a 3D design tool that simplifies operations in complex designs for interior designers. It features thousands of parametric models of cabinets, appliances, accessories, materials and styles, and more, and even has a smart artificial intelligence (AI) decorator at the user’s service for floor planning.
“Due to the pandemic, people started realising how important 3D visualisation could be in affecting consumer awareness. During lockdowns, people can only shop online, which accelerates the e-commerce growth, and kitchens and bathrooms have more complicated designs than living rooms and bedrooms,” commented Cook Liao, commercial vice-president of Coohom.
“Coohom is well aware of that, and hence we developed this powerful tool to help designers and manufacturers present their best ideas and products with a lower cost and higher efficiency. Providing all-in-one and end-to-end solutions has always been Coohom’s top goal, and with our Kitchen & Bath feature, users will get to experience the best possible 3D interior design process. We will realise their imaginations.”
Similar to the other 3D design tools by Coohom, the Kitchen & Bath is easy to apply and cloud-based, which means users can start designing as long as the Internet is available, with a rendering speed of up to 16K resolution.
The augmented reality (AR)-like experience will piece the photo-realistic panoramas together to generate a full 720 virtual walkthrough. The Kitchen & Bath tool also auto-generates construction drawing from 3D designs to 2D drawings with reportedly no barriers at all, and these designs can be edited online and exported to various file formats, such as .dwg, .jpg, and .pdf.
Additionally, Kitchen & Bath has an industry 4.0 interface, and can directly send design data to computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) platforms. Similar to the other Coohom tools, it supports various CAM programmes, such as the HomagIX or WoodCAD|CAM, TopSolid, Cabinet Vision, and more. Lastly, it increases efficiency by minimising manual disassembly, back-and-forth communication, and offline data exchanges.
