Trivantage can even help your customers visualize shade sails in their backyard with the addition of the MPanel Shade Designer module to Awning Composer. Users can download the free version of MPanel Shade Designer through their online account on AwningComposer.com to seamlessly connect the two programs. The free version of MPanel Shade Designer allows users to enter site measurements, design shade sails, and export 3-D models to Awning Composer for visualization.
“If you make shade sails or have plans to expand into the shade sail market you will find these tools useful to showing your customers exactly how shade sails will enhance their home,” said Mark Stiver, Awning Composer manager for Trivantage.
MPanel Shade Designer can be purchased for additional functionality. The paid version checks your measurements for accuracy, calculates the correct shape, and then draws out the patterns for you. Users can export patterns to an automatic cutting machine or measure them out on the shop floor.
