“The ConstructionTree feature is essential not only during the study and exploration of the different style alternatives, but also when dialogue with the customer requires changes to be made to the original design.”
– Silvano Cuzzi
Head of Design, Novellini
“Obviously, these initial ideas are largely introduced using photorealistic rendering. In this phase, execution speed and the variety of the proposals to submit to management are very important to us. Commercial needs often come with extremely fast timelines,” continues Cuzzi. “After management makes its decision, I take the next step to refine the design, while keeping in mind the target market of the product and production needs. Novellini proposes several types of products in the medium range market and now, with the new Elysium line, in the high-end market as well.
“At this point, when the models are ready to move forward to the technical office for engineering and creation of the working models,” explains Cuzzi, “the sales office can already begin to introduce the new products to our customers, using high quality, photorealistic rendering executed with Evolve software."
Novellini also uses Evolve to develop the assembly instructions for the various product lines.
Andrea Zavattini, graphic artist, explains: “Thanks to the high quality of the interactive model display, I can quickly find the most effective angles for the technical representation of the models in our catalogues and in the assembly instructions. This procedure speeds up the entire process of document creation. I use sketch rendering to create the images that only require a few minor tweaks with vector-based drawing software."
"Without Evolve" continued Zavattini, "it would take me at least four times as long as it does today."
