Fisher & Paykel has recently launched improved trade resources to help designers work better and faster, offering a significant improvement to the brand’s website interface to better find and access files, and new content including a range of 3D files.
The next generation files include high resolution models for real time rendering, parametric design in BIM, and sophisticated scheduling. This will enable architects and designers to design and document more easily and help builders and developers to quickly create schedules and identify clashes with ease.
Developed with leading global BIM-focussed architecture practices to ensure the files are optimised and specifically developed for the trade, Fisher & Paykel has taken a human-centred approach to its technical content, in line with its intention to be the world’s most human-centred appliance brand. This means deeply understanding how architects, kitchen designers and cabinetmakers work, what information they are looking for at various stages in the design and build process, and ultimately delivering information that makes their work easier and faster.
Mark Young, retail sales director at Fisher & Paykel, said: “This approach is unique for two reasons. Our files are purpose-built to truly support the industry, in contrast to a common approach where these types of files are often repurposed product engineering files which can be unsuitable to architecture and construction needs. Secondly, the wider delivery of files, including detailed datasheets, hinge articulation files, or alternative installation files gives a level of dimensional information that is unique to Fisher & Paykel, giving designers the tools for true design freedom.”
The purpose-built technical content now includes: 3D files for Revit, ArchiCAD, Sketchup and Rhino, 2D CAD in dxf and dwg, specification guides, datasheets and planning guides.
