New Year, New Tryk Tools

Fresh ideas for 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008...

For years Tricycle has been providing the right tools at the right time to designers and manufacturers. High quality images of custom and running line carpet styles in a variety of formats--delivered fast--make selection less about "waiting" and more about "choosing." Now, as virtual design and construction processes continue to expand throughout the A&D community, Tryk® is the right tool for new ways of getting things done, better.

AutoCAD programs like Revit and SketchUp allow designers to create virtual, 3-dimensional environments and the flexibility to place images of actual products (like carpet) under consideration into the rendering. When a single room or an entire building can be visualized as a finished space, product selection becomes easier. Simple, right?

The challenge for designers becomes finding product images to add to their computer-modeled spaces. Designers (and interns) tell us of hours spent searching online through manufacturer websites and product review pages to find pictures of the right styles in the right colors they can copy. Or, if a sample can be found in the firm's resource library, a designer can scan (and re-scan) architect folders and product brochures. After further time spent manipulating the images with photo editing tools in preparation for adding them to renderings the results are often less than ideal. Partial repeats and low-quality product images make presentations less effective for communicating a designer's intent.

Tryk ® Now is a full-repeat, digital sample made specifically for use in rendering programs. No searching, scanning or anything else that keeps you from doing what you do best, designing. And Tryk samples integrate seamlessly with Tricycle's full suite of tools, like our iPad carpet application, Tryk Studio and Configure, our modular design program.

Digital solutions are the "best" of a sustainable design process where using less is "good" and increasing speed of response is "better." We constantly measure the work we do against our identity as a Sustainable Design Company. Many of our innovations are directed by conversations with designers--people who use our products and are passionate about the same things we are. If you have an idea or comment, let us know. Kudos and criticisms are welcome too.

This year, Tricycle brings designers one more way to dematerialize their process. We're excited about the next eleven months and wish you a great 2011.

nice post...thanks for sharing....

Our blog is mostly about sustainable design in the interiors industry,
especially carpet. Sometimes it's just about us. Updated when we've got something good to say.
