Fisher & Paykel has recently enhanced its Trade Resources to help designers work better and faster.

With a significant improvement to the Fisher & Paykel website interface for improved access to files, and new content including a range of 3D files, Fisher & Paykel continues to help designers, builders and cabinetmakers design dream kitchens.

The next generation files include high resolution models for real time rendering, parametric design in BIM and sophisticated scheduling making it easier for architects and designers to design and document, as well as builders and developers to create schedules quickly and easily and identify clashes. 

Developed with leading global BIM-focused architecture practices to ensure the files are optimised and specifically developed for the trade, Fisher & Paykel has taken a human-centred approach to technical content with a deep understanding of how architects, kitchen designers and cabinetmakers work, what information they are looking for at various stages in the design and build process, and then delivering the information that makes their work easier and faster. 

Fisher & Paykel’s files are purpose built to 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.

Further, 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 greater 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.

Fisher & Paykel global marketing manager, Nicole Stock said, “Our new Trade Resources provides a great breadth of information across design and construction, and it is all finely tuned for how SDA design and install. It provides the level of detail that allows designers to craft and perfect all the small details.”
