What You Need to Know about CAD & Revit Content for Commercial Kitchen Design
Kevin recently joined with Daniel Levinson of Ricca Technology Solutions and Jeff Lewis of FES, Foodservice Equipment Symbols to talk about the CAD and Revit content for the foodservice industry.
Not all symbols and not all symbol creators are equal. Watch the video and read below to learn what designers and foodservice equipment manufacturers need to know.
The Fab Five Foodservice CAD & Revit Creators
As noted in the video above, our manufacturing partners may produce their CAD and Revit content in-house, but many lack the resources. Engineering time is precious and usually focused on product design. Equipment is often using a program like Solidworks, which produces detailed content. Those types of designs are overly complex for the needs of an average designer or consultant.
Rather than recreate the designs in CAD or Revit (which has a high learning curve of its own), most manufacturers contract the work out to specialists.
Manufacturers may use any contractor, of course. However, we recommend using any one of these five firms. These content creators are not only familiar with FCSI standards, but KCL’s standards as well. We don’t receive any referral fees nor do we have a financial interest in them, they have proven their reliability, quality, and consistency over the years.
