The new 3D virtual Idea Builder sketchpad from Versatex,, allows the user to select a realistic model house from a menu of architectural styles, and then customize it with an unlimited range of weather-resistant premium PVC trim elements such as mouldings, window surrounds and beadboard panels.

Working on almost any computer or tablet, the easy-to-use tool allows users to examine their concepts from all angles, zoom in for close-ups or, in effect, fly around a home to evaluate its potential curb appeal. Thanks to Idea Builder’s close integration with the Versatex website and mobile app, users can save their design ideas for future reference, and even review detailed product information about trim components they’ve selected—all free of charge.

More accessible than most online visualizers, Idea Builder is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux desktops and laptops, as well as most tablets with 768 px or greater resolution. It employs HTML5 Canvas, a versatile digital “drawing surface” that’s supported by the Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 9+, Safari 7.0+, Konqueror and Opera browsers, without the need for plug-ins.

Idea Builder is Versatex's latest development in helping homeowners, architects and contractors create smarter.”
