Configura, maker of CET Designer software, announces the release of CET Designer 6.5 with enhancements that include more image-rich options and rendering functionality, as well as the top “feature vote getter” requested by CET Designer users – the hatch fill option.

“Our users are our collaborators in continuing to make CET Designer the best solution for design, specification and space planning,” Configura Vice President of Global Customer Experience Tracy Lanning said. “We work to bring them the new features and improvements that make CET Designer a great tool.”

CET Designer 6.5 features the new hatch fill option. The much-asked-for hatch fill option works with 2D circles and rectangles as well as custom shapes. CET Designer users can use default patterns or import their own patterns from other programs, including from AutoCAD.

Office Accessories

CET Designer 6.5 includes more image-rich options that bring enhanced realism to renderings. More office accessories have been added to the software, including furniture, bags and backpacks, file notes and vases. Additionally, users can apply their own images to different displays by dragging-and-dropping or double-clicking. Users can also apply logos – such as a logo of their dealership – to the office accessories, bringing further realism and branding to renderings produced in CET Designer.

3D clipping

With simplified 3D clipping now available in CET Designer 6.5, portions of drawings can immediately be sent to CET Designer’s Photo Lab for quick rendering. Another new render option is the Outline Overlay. With this new option, CET Designer renders two images: one normal render, and one contour render, which are then “overlayed” to create detailed outlines that can then be further adjusted in the post-processing stage.
