The 3D awning configuration app from markilux now features new functions. These make it even simpler and more intuitive to use.

3D awning visualisation app has new features

If you want to buy an awning, you have to know exactly which model will suit the particular type of house you have in mind and also satisfy the individual requirements of the prospective user. This is when you need an app which will show you whether the colour, shape and design look the way you imagine them before you actually buy the awning. markilux has now added new features to its app enabling you, for example, to make an old awning on the wall simply disappear.

Whereas you used to have to browse through catalogues to find the right awning, you can now try out different models virtually on the wall of a house before buying it using an app on a tablet or smartphone. Last year, awning expert markilux was the first to launch such an app. Now the second version of the 3D tool is available. New functions are intended to make the experience simpler and more intuitive.

Simple operation using touch icons
It takes just a few steps to enter the position, height and width of the awning on the mobile device and start configuring it. First of all you select one of 15 awning models from a menu. The options available are immediately shown on the display. Then you can select frame colours, awning fabrics and different awning models as well as experiment with different settings until you are satisfied with the end result. The touch icons in the awning view are one of the new features in the app. The icons make designing the awning's appearance even more intuitive. The cover is now selected using a colour scale in line with which suitable fabrics are immediately displayed. A new search function means you can quickly find a pattern you liked previously. A zoom function means customers can look at the fabrics in detail. It is just as easy to select the colour of the frame and any extras. The favourite configuration can be saved, if desired, to share with family and friends.

The right awning is just a few clicks away
Just as in the first version of the app, the virtual awning can be opened and closed and examined from every angle. This means customers can gauge how they feel about both the pattern and the colour effect of the cover. The app can even simulate the shade cast by the awning, according to date and time. A further new function is “diminished reality”. This is used to make an old awning on the wall simply disappear. The new model can thus be seen on its own in all its glory. A dealer can also be reached directly in awning viewing mode if you are interested in a quotation. The app thus helps customers in their purchase decision because all it takes is a few intuitive clicks until you have just the awning you were looking for.
