K/B Apps for That
If you are one of the many kitchen and bath designers trading in the laptop for the iPad, have you maximized your investment by downloading the right apps for your business?
During a recent kitchen and bath industry chat
we join weekly on Twitter (@kbtribechat / #kbtribechat), Mark Johnson, FAIA|CKD|AIBD and principal of MARKITECT, and Eric Schimelpfenig, AKBD and Owner of SketchThis.NET, outlined their favorite apps for education, design, selling and marketing.
We also recommend you check out Google SketchUp
, a free 3D sketching software for the conceptual phase of design. The powerful modeling, presentation and file exchange tools help designers find, visualize and specify products quickly — including Formica® Brand Products.
For a hands-on experience, we’re impressed by Maide Control
, a new app that lets you build and view 3D SketchUp models with your hands. Be sure to check out the demo!Formica Corporation
will throw its hat into the app ring in February 2012. We’ll post the details here once it is live.
Do you have any favorite apps to add to the list?
