Kitchen Design Notes was contacted by Noah Kennedy, a product manager for a new technology under development by Autodesk that would allow DIY’s and interior designers to experiment with home remodeling ideas in an entirely new way.

Autodesk, an industry leader in several key design and visualization industries wants to here from you. Autodesk has a vision that decorators want to (1) see their designs quickly, easily and photorealistically before they are real, (2) privately browse real products (furnishings, appliances, paint/wallcoverings, tiles, fabrics, etc.) from real manufacturers, and (3) be able to mix and match products together.

Noah states, “What we need now is feedback: do you and your readers like this vision and do you want to see more? What are we doing right, and what are we missing?”

“Our technology preview shows how this might work- it is free and works on all browsers, and there is no software to install. What we need now is feedback: do you and your readers like this vision and do you want to see more? What are we doing right, and what are we missing?”

Send Noah your feedback. This is a chance for designers and homeowners to give your opinion on what you want in design software.

  1. Laurie-Great blog, and thanks very much for your mention. Your readers’ input will be very helpful to us- hope you all feel free to leave comments on the Showroom forum, email to us, or here on Kitchen Design Notes.One thing- these images are NOT photographs: they are computer-generated images. Showroom allows you to change products in the viewport and then generates new virtual images in real-time. Notice for example in Laurie’s edited image with the pale blue paint vs. the lipstick-colored paint. Look in the top left corner and you’ll see that the white cabinets have a little color “bleed” from the painted wall, and the area above the cabinets is lighter with the lighter blue paint. Showroom is re-modeling the character of the light in the room based on changes in the colors the walls are painted.
