How Do I Use KCL to Find CAD Files For Specific Models?
With KCL, finding design files for a specific model of restaurant equipment is simple. To start, visit app.kclcad.com using your favorite internet browser.
Next, use our advanced filters to locate the model or equipment that you’re seeking. There are four filters that you can use in KCL:
- If you already know which manufacturer’s equipment you would like to include in your restaurant design, start with this filter.
- If you’ve chosen a manufacturer already or you’re interested in looking at various types of equipment, use the Category filter. For example, typing in “Range” will show you different types of ranges, like a “24” Electric Range” or “Heavy Duty Range.”
- Are you seeking CAD blocks for a specific model of restaurant equipment? Type in the model number using this advanced filter.
- Use this advanced filter to find a specific term or word within a model’s spec sheet. For example, if you want to find NSF specifications, you can use the search filter to see spec sheets with that term.
Does KCL Integrate with AutoCAD®, Revit®, and AutoQuotes?
Our desktop version simplifies the design process, by allowing you to import and export designs with AutoCAD, Revit, and AutoQuotes stress-free. We also offer a plugin for Autodesk® Revit® that enables you to access our entire database within your Revit software.
