FAQ’s

Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of the questions you may have concerning our design systems.  If you don’t find the answer here you may find it by watching our Demo or reading our comprehensive Help File.  If all that fails……. please don’t hesitate to contact us on (386) 405-0306.

How does it work?

The system works by importing images of individual sections of cabinetry to a computer screen and manoevering them into position to form the required design.

How long does it take to learn how to use the design systems?

The design systems are simple in principle and the basics can be learned by practicing for only an hour or two.

Are there floor plans as well as visuals?

Yes.  Besides the modules that produce the front elevations, we have “Top-Down” systems that work on the same principle to build up a floor plan.

Is everything hand drawn?

Essentially yes. An electronic drawing tablet is utilized to prepare sketches and facilitate importing them into the computer. It also greatly aids the clarity of the resulting images.

Is the system compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8?

Yes. If you are running the “64 bit” version of Vista and cannot access your Image Libraries via the program, the installation has probably split the Image Libraries and the program into the two program folders. Please call us and we can talk you through how to rectify this in a few minutes.

Will the Design Systems do everything a CAD program will?

No. The software is designed to produce elevation visuals and floor plans only. It was developed primarily as a sales aid for designers and business owners. However, we can provide costing and material lists via Excel Spreadsheets if required and offer a full customized system fearuring pricing and materials list.

Will the Design Systems produce price sheets?

The software does not do this automatically but we can provide you with costing sheets using Excel spreadsheets if required. We can also provide a customized system with a “Quote” page to show pricing and materials lists. Please contact us at designservices@c-cds.com for further information on this service.

Will the Design Systems produce cut sheets?

The standard software does not do this automatically but we can provide a basic materials list inexpensively via an Excel spreadsheet if required. The custom “Quote” page option can be programmed to do this.

Will the system “plug into” computerized factory equipment such as CNC Routers?

No. You will need a good, industry-specific CAD system and deep pockets!!

Are there any other systems besides the Closet Design Systems?

Yes. We have design systems for Home Offices/Media Center, Garages and Pantries as well as Closets. There are also Top-down viewpoints to compliment each of our respective systems.

Can the systems be customized to suit specific requirements?

Yes! Go to our Customization page and read more about this. Customization will be priced individually depending upon specific requirements. Please contact us to discuss your individual needs.

Are the Design Systems compatible with Mac?

Not at the present time but we now offer the option of an on-line system which is accessible to any computer with an internet connection.

What image sizing options are available?

Metric sized Images are now offered as well as the standard Feet and Inches measurement. Please contact us directly at designservices@c-cds.com if you require a Metric System.

Are the images drawn to scale?

Yes …. they were drawn to the scale of 1/2″ to the foot. (12.5ml. to 300ml.)

Do I have to buy all the systems at once?

No …. Once you own one of our Image Design Systems new Image Libraries can be added over time to suit your needs.

Why doesn’t my application workspace display correctly?

XP Users – The application needs a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768 or above. If your screen resolution is lower than that you should change it. To do this right click on your desktop and click Properties. In the Display Properties box that appears click the Settings tab. Alter the screen resolution by sliding the marker to the required resolution.

Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8 Users – Right click your mouse (or laptop touch pad) anywhere on the desktop and select “Screen Resolution” from the menu that appears. You will see a heading called “Resolution” in the box that opens. You can then select an appropriate screen resolution by adjusting the slider from the drop-down section that appears.

What standard width sizes are used?

In the Closet and Pantry Image Design Systems there are full height sections in 18″, 24″, 30″ and 36″, (450ml. 600ml. 750ml. & 900ml.) Also illustrated are floor standing units in both 84″ (2100ml.) and 96″ (2400ml.) panel heights. The wall mounted systems have panel heights of 48″ and 78″ (1200ml. and 1980ml.), in line with the 32ml. bore system.

The Garage Image Design System is illustrated in widths of 18″, 24″, 30″, 36″, (450ml. 600ml. 750ml. & 900ml.) and 48″ (1200ml.), whilst the Home Office Image Design System has widths of 18″, 21″, 24″, 30″, and 36″ (450ml. 525ml. 600ml. 750ml. & 900ml.) . In the Home Office system there is also a 12″ (300ml.) wide CPU base and upper cabinet.

All images can be re-sized to show any width without losing visual scale.

Does the Trial Version contain all the images the full version does?

No. The trial version contains a selection of images which is enough to produce basic designs for each of our systems. In addition there is a Closet “mini” system with over 100 images to enable you to “experiment” with a variety of designs. However, the full design systems contain many hundreds of images and allows you to depict any design scenario you are likely to need.
