Tech Tip Tutorial: KCL Custom Blocks

KCL’s Custom Blocks foodservice design tools allow you to create configurable, customizable blocks that can be manufacturer-specific or generic. They’re useful if your submittal can’t show branding and for items that require custom choices.

As you’ll see below, our 100+ Custom Block programs make it easy to generate 2D or render-ready 3D drawings on the fly!

KCL Custom Blocks help you create plan view, front, view, 3D blocks for your foodservice designs. Some of our 100+ Custom Blocks programs are manufacturer-specific and some are generic. We also have KCL generic items; for example different kinds of sinks or tables. We add programs as we go, so feel free to reach out to us if you have suggestions for useful new items.

  • Use Custom Blocks with NapkinSketch, AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT, and Revit
  • Run Custom Blocks from KCL Desktop, KCL Web, or with embedded hosting
  • Create simple Custom Blocks
  • Create complex Custom Blocks
  • Use 2D front/plan to generate fab drawings
