KITCHCREATOR

KitchCreator is the only multi-platform 3D product configurator and room planner for the foodservice industry. Our patent-pending 3D product configurators let you choose the features you want to create your ideal configured products.

Introducing KitchCreator

A modern yet simple foodservice design tool is coming to the foodservice industry. KitchCreator is a multi-platform 3D product configurator and room planner. Choose the features you want to create your ideal configured products then using the room planner you can design a layout in 3D using the same products you configured. You can even design a layout on the mobile app and export it to Revit or AutoCAD.

KitchCreator for Revit

KitchCreator for Revit is the engine for all of the KitchCreator configurators. Using our patent-pending technology, KitchCreator for Revit is a collection of “Create” tools that can be used to create Revit families or written specifications. For example using our Create Faucet tool, designers can use any combination of faucet base and faucet spout while viewing their creations in our live 3D Revit preview. Select your options then click Create and a Revit family is created on the spot!

KitchCreator for Web/Mobile

KitchCreator for Web/Mobile is a multi-platform 3D product configurator and room planner accessed from a web browser or a mobile app. Manufacturers can embed 3D product configurators with room planners on their website while designers can configure and design in 3D from their iPad. Virtual reality, augmented reality, itemized budgets, and so much more, get ready for a whole new foodservice design experience!

KITCHACADEMY

KitchAcademy contains a collection of AEC software training courses but our main focus is on teaching Revit for Foodservice Design.

Workflow Consulting

We know how difficult it can be to change the way you design and that is why we offer consulting customized to your needs and even your location. We love to travel and we are great at remote training sessions, whether it’s a full bootcamp or a quick lesson on family building, let’s talk about your Revit needs.

KITCHDESIGNER

KitchDesigner contains over 30 tools to support foodservice designers using Revit.

Place MEP Connection Points

They are here! You can now automatically place and tag the symbol of your choice over your electrical, pipe, and duct connectors with our groundbreaking MEP Connection Points tool. Don’t have MEP connectors in your families? No worries, our patent-pending tools will detect when MEP connectors are missing and place the symbols in an alternate placement location that you select. You can specify your own generic annotations or use our new connection point symbol creator to create new ones. Then sit back and watch the MEP Connection Points tool make quick work of identifying every MEP connection for the electricians, plumbers, and sheet metal workers. We built these tools for foodservice consultants but they are sure to put a smile on every foodservice designer’s face.

MEP Devices

Our new placement tools work wonders for rough-ins and connection points, but what about all of the other mechanical, electrical, and plumbing devices that are required in foodservice designs? Well that is where our new MEP Devices tool picks up the slack. Foodservice designers now have the ability to specify over 20 devices that can be placed with the click of the mouse. Each of these new devices even gets a dedicated button on the KitchDesigner toolbar.

Project Checker

Quality control is a critical step in the foodservice design process but it is routinely rushed as project schedules get shorter and shorter. With the Project Checker tool, foodservice designers can quickly check over 75 common issues and zoom in to the problem areas. You can even fix common issues on the spot. With the Project Checker you will never dread doing quality control again!

Project Checker

Number and Tag Equipment

Our simple to use tools make these monotonous tasks a breeze, Tag Equipment uses an equipment’s orientation to place its tag in the perfect position while Number Equipment lets designers number by clicking.  Once you try these tools you will never be able to go back but fear not, they are included in our Free version.

KitchDesigner Business

Add MEP Rough-Ins

With the new and improved patent-pending KitchDesigner MEP tools, adding MEP Rough-Ins to your foodservice designs has never been easier. We did a complete overhaul and gave you the controls. Now you can place any symbol in the floor, wall, or ceiling based on your rules. With this new rule-based approach, you create your own rules based off any FCSI shared parameter. You can even fine tune the placement for each individual rough-in symbol. You now have the ability to create your dream solution to placing MEP rough-ins.

Design Narratives

Having trouble coordinating changes?  Not anymore with our patent-pending Design Narrative tool; designers can now create Word® documents documenting all of their changes in Revit.  Share this with the design team and changes will never be missed again!
