Visualise the future for your workshop

When planning a kitchen or bathroom, to help you visualise what the units selected might look like, the supplier typically offers a 3D representation, ahead of placing an order.

For those businesses considering to take their workshop to the next level with Hunter equipment, Pro-Align is offering a fantastic opportunity to have a similar full 3D workshop design layout created. This not only assists in the planning and visualisation of the proposed new equipment and workshop changes, but ensures the positioning of the Hunter equipment offers the best in terms of efficiency and productivity.

Pro-Align’s EC Design 3D workshop can be drafted from a few simple dimensions. Starting at a 2D level, the workshop’s dimensions are set out to include any walls, ceiling height, floor doorways and windows. Then by laying on any chosen Hunter equipment, as well as other representative workshop equipment already on site, users can start to see how their new layout might work. You can even select the fabric of the building, colours, lighting, chairs, tables and even plants and a vending machine in the waiting room to give a full real-life representation. The process takes a matter of minutes.

The 3D reveal is just a click away and you can then spend time trying out different configurations. For example, you can move walls if you are considering knocking through, change equipment or positions, or try out a flush mount ramp instead of four post ramp, all to see how that affects the layout.

Once you have the layout and equipment positioned how you want, Pro-Align can then take you on a virtual walk or fly through. This is when you truly discover if the ergonomics and practicalities of the layout works, not only for the business, but your technicians and customers too. The service is a perfect way to ensure you get the investment decision right from the outset.

Workshops who have already utilised Pro-Align’s EC Design 3D workshop have been amazed by the results with most cases revealing a number of ways to improve their workshop layout.
