Flooring plays a significant role in the design of a room. Selecting the right carpet is the key to success. Carpets Inter continually search for ways to increase the efficiency of the carpet tile design process. For that reason they developed the Carpets Inter 3D Virtual Simulator.

With the 3D Virtual Simulator for the iPad and iPhone you can visually experience our comprehensive carpet tile catalogue. Automatically updated by their in-house design team, this app ensures that you are up-to-date on our latest offerings.

“With the launch of the 3D Simulator App, our clients have the opportunity to play with designs, colours and installation techniques, making specification for projects simple” Kim McMurray, Global Marketing Director, Tai Ping Carpets.

Now you can create your own floor design with just a touch of your finger. The tool will enable you to select the desired room scene, design, and colour. By changing the carpet installation within the room, you can see how your selected design looks in the room.
