Searching for Items and Typicals

Once you’ve started a New Project, it’s time to add items to your scene. You can add individual furniture items, pre-configured typicals, KOE items (such as people, plants and walls), and Freeform Items.

To start, tap Add Item+

When you first open the Add Item screen, the catalog filter will appear automatically. Here you can browse the manufacturer catalogs you are subscribed to and have synced.

This will open your Add Item Menu. Here you can search all the Manufacturer catalogs to find items or typicals for your scene.

Advanced Search Filters

You can use advanced search filters to narrow down your selection, especially when you are trying to navigate hundreds of digital catalogs. There are 4 ways you can search for items or typicals:

  • Search by Manufacturer Catalog
  • Search by Price
  • Search by Type
  • Search Description, Model Number, or Typical ID

Searching by manufacturer will limit your selection to the products available by that specific manufacturer. Drag the price meter to narrow down products within a certain range, and you can select which type of products (items, typicals, or both) you’re looking for.

When it comes to searching by description, there are a few things to keep in mind. KITS will match the word or collection of keywords you enter to the item/typical’s brief description or details. For example, if you search “private” you will notice the first two typicals have the word “Private” in their brief description.

Tap an item or typical once for more options like Add to Project or Details. Tap the item or typical once more, and you will enter Full Screen Mode, hiding all options and details to remove distractions when presenting to clients.

Tap Details to display product details and a description of the item/typical provided by the manufacturer. Product details vary depending on the manufacturer and item. Tap the X to close the pop-up window and return to the item.

Adding to Your Scene

To add an item or typical to your scene, tap the Plus icon from the thumbnail view or double tap the image.

You can also tap Add to Project from the top navigation bar when you are viewing an individual item or typical.

 

These buttons will redirect you to the scene builder where you can then tap and drag the item into your scene. That’s it! Now you can continue adding furniture to your scene to create unique solutions for your client. Your next step is to specify the fabrics and finishes of the items in your scene.
