KCL NapkinSketch Webinar for Reps and Manufacturers - Thursday, November 19th at 1:00 - 2:00 pm EDT

Think KCL is just for designers?
Think again!

 

KCL NapkinSketch now lets you design a simple kitchen layout without CAD or BIM software. Take a look.

That’s right, you can use the full KCL symbol library to create your walk-in cooler, dish room, bar, or kitchen layout. You can either save your sketch as a PDF to mark up in Adobe or Bluebeam or save it as a DWG file to send to the manufacturer or client. DWG files can be opened in AutoCAD and refined for more detailed kitchen design including utility schedules and specbooks.

Do your clients a favor and ditch that paper napkin sketch for a long-lasting and more useful KCL NapkinSketch.

Create a functional design filled with accurate items and equipment dimensions that can easily be turned into a full-blown kitchen design. What a time saver!

All MAFSI rep and manufacturer members are invited to participate.

Date: Wednesday, November 19th
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
