If you need fabrics, you can choose fire resistance levels first. You always have many possible filtering ways to perfomr easy selection out of tens of thousands products.

Organize your work in a hierarchy of folders

During the research you can save products you find into folders, so you can revisit them in a later stage. Accompany each product with your notes, comments, or extra references. Once you finish some project archive related folder. You can access archive again if you like to re-use some information from previous works.

Collaboration is key part of product and material selection

Share your projects with other designers, architects, clients, contractors, LEED-accredited professionals, commissioning agents, manufacturers' representatives, and others. Once your client had decided to proceed with the project, you may find yourself collaborating with varying combinations of tradespeople. We made this collaboration easy by employing share features with possible view limitations.
