Chief Architect software expert Scott Harris and architectural designer Adam Gibson walk you through the tools and processes you need to make your kitchen design a reality, plus offer design ideas for creating a kitchen that will meet your needs now and for years to come.

If clients can visualize how a new project will look, they are much more likely to begin if they see and interact with your design ideas. 3D software provides a variety of visualization tools to help – elevations, perspectives, 360 Renderings and Virtual Reality.
In this session, we will look at using 3D software to layout the kitchen cabinets, visualize the space, and provide style options to help the clients see the finished project before construction has even started.
What you will learn:
Chief Architect vice president Scott Harris will demonstrate how to overlay the as-built drawings with the remodel to help visualize the new space. He will also show how to place cabinets, appliances, and fixtures; add dimensions to the wall elevations; and access design options in the software’s style palette.
Architectural designer Adam Gibson will follow Scott’s lessons with real-world examples of how to put those tools to good use with beautiful Living-in-Place solutions for kitchens and baths, including some future proofing ideas.
