EXPERIENCE DESIGN FREEDOM
Design the kitchen you have always wanted using Project Dragonfly. This design application simplifies home improvement projects. Consumers directly participate in the design process using intuitive interior design tools to rapidly layout and furnish their dream kitchen. Design scenarios can easily be shared with family and friends before making a selection.
To enhance the experience, Dacor's kitchen appliances can be added to the designs at the click of a button, eliminating guessing and wondering if the right selections have been made: a single oven versus a double, where to put the warming drawer, should an overhead or raised vent be used.
Dacor has provided wall ovens, ranges, cooktops, dishwashers, warming drawers, ventilation hoods, refrigerators and more. Consumers can visualize in both 2-D and 3-D their future kitchen and be confident in their choices.
Additionally, Autodesk® Seek and Dacor have partnered to simplify the design professional and builder experience. Using Autocad, Revit or 3-D Studio, the complete line of Dacor's products can now be brought directly into designs. Images and specs are readily available for review to meet clients' wants and requirements.
Autodesk Seek is a powerful, dynamic web service that replaces bulky paper catalogs and static online directories. Architects and engineers are connected to building product manufacturers, enhancing design efficiency and streamlining project workflows. Time-consuming searches and product or component redesigns are drastically reduced. Autodesk's Seek application is connected to Project Dragonfly which exclusively features Dacor appliances.
Project Dragonfly offers consumers, and professionals as well, an opportunity to quickly and simply design kitchens in a 3-D format. Autodesk Seek assists professionals with finding products and product information faster and easier, minimizing design time. Together, these two on-line sources make kitchen design for all involved exact, efficient, and fun.
