Kitchen Draw software is a program that boasts 2-D and 3-D planning capability along with photo-realistic images. Available in 25 different languages, the program has a Catalog Creator Tool that allows cabinet manufacturers and distributors to create their own catalog. It's now possible to move around in real time in a KitchenDraw scene.
It's now possible to move around in real time in a KitchenDraw scene thanks to the Walkthrough facility.
A dynamic and automatic dimensioning facility like the one already existing in KD4.5 for elevation views has been developed for plan views. In addition to increase the ease of use, this new feature allows to produce better looking floor plans.
Furthermore, it's now possible to place angular dimensions as well as radius dimensions. This is particularly useful to establish special worktops plans to the manufacturers.
Size and precision of the scenes
The scenes format has been changed with KitchenDraw version 5. Now, the numerical values are 32 bits long.
Actually that means it's now possible to plan huge scenes with a much better accuracy.
As an example, it would be possible to plan a scene having a 200 kilometres side with a precision of a tenth of a millimetre.
In order to take advantage of this new possibility, new measurement units have been introduced:
mm (1 mm) : the dimensions are given in millimetres with a precision of 1 millimetre (without any decimal)
mm (1,0 mm) : the dimensions are given in millimetres with a precision of a tenth of a millimetre (one decimal)
mm (1,00 mm) : the dimensions are given in millimetres with a precision of a hundredth of a millimetre (two decimals)
cm (1,0 cm) : the dimensions are given in centimetres with a precision of 1 millimetre (one decimal)
If you use metric measurements, we now advise that you use the mm (1,0 mm) measurement unit.
Circle arcs in shapes
In KitchenDraw 5.0, circles arcs are not transformed into a sequence of linear segments but they keep their circle arc identity.
This is particularly important when it becomes necessary to send technical plans to the manufacturers (special worktops, etc.) because this allows an automatic integration into the production process.
It's possible to export special worktops plans (worktops inside shape) as .DXF files and to join them to the supplier order file sent by email.
This facility allows a KitchenDraw 5 user to place some of his projects (scenes) on the KitchenDraw server. This way, the corresponding clients will be able to see them remotely through the internet.
