Configura releases CET Designer 7.5
The newest version of the award-winning space-planning software solution lets users produce 360-degree renderings for export to use with smartphone virtual reality kits and viewing in MyConfigura briefcases (visit the CET Designer Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CETDesigner/ on Nov. 21 for an example 360-degree rendering). Virtual reality capabilities also have been enhanced through a collaboration with Yulio.
Also with CET Designer 7.5, users will see improvements to CET Designer’s Movie Studio and will enjoy more accessory options.
Configura regularly polls users for feature requests. This release’s top request is an added dimension tool on the 2D toolbar. Users also requested a spell-check / auto-correct tool and the ability to add sliding doors to a Walls tab, both of which have been added.
“We’re about optimizing CET Designer for our users so they can create incredible space-planning experiences for their customers,” Configura Chief Product Officer Nicklas Dagersten said.
RevLink – the CET Designer Extension that integrates with Revit – now has upgraded integration. Also, a new SketchUp export option has been included with the release of CET Designer 7.5.
The ability to customize the visibility of features, functionality and elements in the CET Designer interface – showing or hiding parts of the program depending on a user’s needs – has been made possible through the Work mode editor in the newest version of CET Designer. Changes can be saved as different presets, which can be switched between as needs change during a project.
“It’s about making CET Designer seamless for each user,” Configura Vice President of Global Customer Experience Tracy Lanning said.
Configura Training Specialist Kelsey Debruin recently held a Facebook Live event about CET Designer 7.5 features; the video can be viewed at https://www.facebook.com/CETDesigner/videos/10154337934748052/.

About CET Designer
Based on technology created by Configura, CET Designer is intelligent, highly visual and intuitive space-planning software that simplifies specifying and selling of products in a variety of industries. It’s a complete solution that quickly and accurately handles every step of the sales and order process. In CET Designer, components that represent manufacturers’ products look and behave like actual products. Users drag and drop components into 2D and 3D virtual environments; behind the scenes, the software tracks components, calculates pricing and prevents user errors. Users can create and generate layouts, quotes, photorealistic renderings, movies, installation drawings, reconfigurations and bills of materials – in other words, everything needed to propose on work and place orders. CET Designer is the future of space planning. More information at www.configura.com/cet.
