Leading Australian Kitchen Business Launches 3D Room Planner with 3D Cloud by Marxent
The new partnership between 3D Cloud™ by Marxent and Australia’s Kinsman Kitchens and Wardrobes launches with a fun twist on Australia’s #1 renovation reality TV show.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Nov. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today 3D Cloud™ by Marxent, the 3D experience platform for furniture and home improvement, announced a partnership with Kinsman, a leading Australian manufacturer and retailer of kitchens and wardrobes. Bringing new choices and better design tools to Australians looking to remodel their homes, Kinsman’s self-service room planner is accessible from their website with users able to complete designs by working with Kinsman design experts.
“We are excited to profile the new design tool on “The Block,” Australia’s #1 renovation reality show,” said Tracy Smedley, Chief Growth Officer at Kinsman. “It made perfect sense to feature this innovative 3D Room Planner alongside the incredible 3D printed house in the show. We even managed to include our own fun 3D version of “The Block’s” furry friend Frankie who appears on the show,” she said. Wardrobes from “The Block” bedrooms are being recreated in the design tool for customers to play with directly.
“The new 3D Room Planner is first to market in Australia, bringing high quality, on-trend kitchen and wardrobe designs to life for our customers,” Smedley said. “We utilised our long-term sponsorship of “The Block” this season to soft launch the design tool in the context of real remodeling situations. COVID showed us customer interest in online uptake and this continues to be a successful part of our core sales and marketing strategy,” she said.
“Choice is exciting, but customization can create barriers to decision making and can drag projects out,” said Beck Besecker, Marxent’s CEO and Co-Founder. “When it comes to home improvement projects, 3D visualisation tools give consumers more control over the design process, improving buyer confidence and reducing the sales cycle for new kitchen cabinets by half,” he said.
“This is a first in Australia. It takes a truly innovative retailer to bring a solution like this to market,” Besecker said. “Our expertise in highly configurable products for kitchen and wardrobes made 3D Cloud by Marxent a natural fit.”

“We are inspired by the people and culture of Australia and are expanding our team in the region,” Besecker said. “Retailers have unique challenges here and 3D is the perfect way to attract and sell to a geographically dispersed audience.”
