Range Hood Designs Go 3D

RICHARDSON, Texas (April 19, 2016) – Online range hood creation is now available in a whole new dimension. Vent-A-Hood, the company that created the modern residential range hood, has introduced the world’s first interactive online 3D hood building experience with the next generation of its Build-A-Hood website.

“At Vent-A-Hood, we are known for pushing the boundaries by offering new and innovative range hood features, displays and experiences to consumers,” said Miles Woodall III, CEO of Vent-A-Hood. “This new 3D experience allows customers, kitchen designers and the public at large to get a better and more comprehensive online design experience that will help ensure they get the exact Vent-A-Hood range hood of their dreams.”

Created using Autodesk® Configurator 360 (C360) technology, Build-A-Hood is a unique 3D range hood modeling service and the world’s first publically accessible C360 site. Consumers can freely choose widths, CFMs, ceiling heights, finishes, and decorative treatments. Model numbers and prices update in real time based on every selection consumers make during their online designing experience. Consumers can download JPEG and PNG images from every angle of the 3D range hood. Dimensional drawings, which are useful for consumers focusing on kitchen redesign and planning, can be exported in PDF format to ensure proper placement, size, and design.

“Build-A-Hood is the latest in 3D modeling technology showing once again that Vent-A-Hood consistently makes strides in ventilation through innovation. Our valued partnership with Autodesk allows Vent-A-Hood to truly push the boundaries and set new standards in our industry,” said Woodall.
