What are the benefits of membership?

3Dazer & Mobile App for interior design

3Dazer® is a laser measurement device and app launched by Laurel At Sunset, Inc. With 3Dazer®, you can turn your iPhone into a smart measuring tool, which enables you to do direct measurement or create a project and measure by rooms.

You can create and manage your projects with this app, name it, record client's information, add pictures, measure the rooms as well as sketch the floor plan and mark on the picture. 

Designer projects cloud platform

Based on cloud service, the platform provides designers easy access to manage their projects wherever they are through their mobile device, laptop or desktop.

You can create a project in your account on our platform with all the information well organized and easy to browse. All the project information is classified by rooms, including measurements, photos, floor plan sketch, marks and notes. When designing the room, you can also upload all the furnishings information you pick for the room and save them in your personal products library for your future use. All the measurements can be exported to third party software such as "AutoCAD" and "Sketch up" for you to draw the floor plan or create the 3D model with your familiar tools.

With 3Dazer and mobile App, all the information collected on your iPhone will be automatically synchronized to your cloud account. And you can share the project with your coworkers and client without worrying about sharing or sending large files.

Our platform also provides many useful templates to help designers work more efficiently, including:

  • Order Estimate
  • Invoice
  • Design Service Contract
  • Order Update Report

Our logistics team will monitor production, shipping and White Glove delivery service directly to your client. 

Virtual Showroom

Extensive catalogs of top brands of furniture, lighting and home décor are available for our trade members. Using the latest technology, we organized acclaimed furnishings manufacturers into Virtual Showrooms. This approach allows designers to shop many brands without spending time to travel and search for a right product for their projects. Using cyberspace in the furnishing industry expands the capacity of the Virtual Showroom to fit all brands and manufacturers into one virtual space. Instead of pricey trips to multiple tradeshows and distant conventions, our designers can find a perfect piece of furniture or home décor at one place in the comfort of her home office, coffee shop or even right at the client’s meeting.

We elevated a familiar concept of trade-only showrooms and design centers to an online platform where a designer can browse, save products, and send a request for a quote to our support center.

3D Rendering Service

Photorealistic 3D Rendering is a perfect way to give your client an exact presentation of the space before they commit to any purchase or renovation suggestion. Professional designers know that very few people are able to create a mental visualization of the project based solely on the mood board. Seeing a complete photorealistic picture will help your client to understand how all elements in the design merge together to create a cohesive and stylish space. 

Also rendering is a sure way to avoid any misunderstandings and understatements. We developed a strong network of professional 3D artists that will give you a tailored visualization of your design presentation. Quality results, fast delivery and direct communication will ensure that your projects get the attention that they deserve. The key to successful visualization of design project is to capture the vibe and atmosphere you create for your client.

3D Model Library

Each item on our extensive library of 3D furniture models is linked with actual an item available for purchase. It helps to simplify the process of converting design presentation into a purchase order. Our 3D designers (techs?) use latest technology and artistic skills to create qualities of textures and materials to make the image more realistic. We chose our reliable partner teams based on combination of high quality, fast delivery and attention to details. Creating a model, choosing light sources, placing virtual cameras on the right angles, rendering and postproduction – we reviewed the execution of the rendering step by step, making sure that our designers will get the best product in the industry.
