    You may have seen our recent mailer showing the huge difference decorative items can make to your designs. We’re quite excited by recent updates to the catalog, exclusively available in 2020 Cloud but we want to know what you think!

    Did you add any items? If not, why not? Are there items you were looking for but didn’t see?

    We’re constantly adding more decorative items, & your suggestions and thoughts are important to us so let us know what you think!

    UPDATED June 26th – Did you know you can now review all the Decorative Items on a web page and submit suggestions for new items? Check it out!

    1) The only catalog I see on mine is Manufacturers and it is mostly appliances and plumbing. I am very new at the 2020 Cloud. How do I get the Decorative Catalog (among others) and how do I get notifications about updates, as I am not getting any now.? Have had my own key of 2020 about 4 1/2 months.

    Nevermind. Duh, just figured out where it is. Still would like update notifications, though.

    Hi Peggy,

    Glad you figured it out. We are in fact working on some ideas to deliver notifications.

    For the moment though, the best way is just to check in the Newsfeed of your 2020 Cloud window. When we have an update or a new release we post a note in there.

    You’ll also see usage tips and other handy entries!

    Best,

    Hi. I’ve been using Fusion for quite a while and Advance Graphics were very boring. I did manage to find a few items in Advanced Graphics that I changed sizes and colours of and Saved in my Unit Groups. I was very excited (sad or what) to have some new items to play with on 2020 Cloud, yet a very large percentage are THE SAME as Advanced Graphics. Some nice new additions, BUT WHY ARE THEY LOCKED! They cannot be changed in size/colour etc. Or can they ?

    Hi Joanne. Many thanks for your post – it’s great to hear there’s excitement around the 2020 Cloud Decorative Items catalog 🙂 We have indeed incorporated much of the existing Fusion Advanced Graphics items into the Decorative Items catalog, but there’s also many hundreds of brand new items that you wouldn’t have seen before in 2020 Fusion. The Decorative Items catalog will also continue to be enhanced and updated on a regular basis – in fact, a further 300+ additional items are going to be streamed to you live from 2020 Cloud over the next few days. As you have noted, a current restriction of 2020 Cloud within 2020 Fusion means that you are unable to change the dimensions and materials of items. This will be addressed as we start to introduce more configurable ‘cloud based’ items in future 2020 Cloud and 2020 Fusion releases.

    Again, thanks for your post.

    Hi Joanne. Just an additional comment to yesterday’s post; you should already be able to change the dimensions of items coming from the 2020 Cloud Decorative Catalog. I’m not sure if you’re using the latest version of 2020 Fusion, but perhaps you could let us know if you are unable to change dimensions when using version 4.5.4.10, which is available for you to download and install in the usual way.

    Many thanks.

    Hi Deedee, once you’ve logged into 2020 Cloud and clicked on the browse tab, you can choose 2020 as the manufacturer, and the Decorative Items catalog will then be available as a choice in the list of catalogs.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi all,

    This cloud catalog is really fine, but……..!

    Why is it impossible to change the different textures on the Items (in the French catalog it is impossible).

    Is it an oversight ?

    Hi, currently 2020 Cloud supports non-configurable items only, so it is not possible to change the materials for Decorative items. We are continuing to develop and enhance 2020 Cloud, and in later phases, it will allow items to be fully configured.

    Thanks

    Hi De Volontat,

    It’s impossible in all the cloud catalogs. That variable has not been unlocked in the cloud catalogs yet. Please remember that the cloud project is still in the open beta phase of its development and is by no means a completed feature.

    I am new to the cloud also. I do love the extra options it provides but I am not finding items that you would see in most kitchens that I would love to put in the designs. Examples are food storage such as square lift lid containers, bottles of ketchup, large vinegar bottles, dog food bins, adult beverage bottles, soda cans, regular trash bins for pantries, soup cans, cereal boxes, kitchen stools, and other kitchen basics. A lot of my clients need help visualizing what each cabinet or pantry space will be used for and I find that hard to show right now. Am I missing something? Whenever I use Sketch up it makes my designs VERY SLOW or crashes my 2020 so I don’t don’t have that option even though I have a great high end computer. ?Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

    Just now activated the cloud. I was having a bit of troulbe getting it going, but from what I can see, It is going to be a great tool. So many questions —- !!!

    Only one I want to ask right now is – are there any sinks to be able to put into my drawing? there are a limited few in the catalog itself, but I am looking for a small bar sink to use in an optometrist office.

    This is really cool!!

    Hi Tom

    We’re pleased to hear you’ve discovered the 2020 Cloud and can see the vision of what we will be bringing to our customers in the near future. Right now, we have only just begun to roll out certain types of content, such as appliances and decorative items.

    We’d be happy to answer any of your questions to guide you on your way with 2020 Design and 2020 Cloud, but to answer your first question, we do not yet have a range of sinks available in North America, though we are continually adding new content. Was there a particular manufacturer or product that you were looking for? This would help us prioritize future content types.

    Thanks!

    Susan, it is worth looking at using the AutoDeco assistant. The assistant can be customised and is a very effective way of quickly enhancing drawings. Agreed it needs the ‘standard’ catalogs and won’t use the cloud items but it works VERY well in most circumstances (once customised – the V11 defaults are quite odd compared to the V9 versions).

    I work for a company with 20+ designers and each designer gets through 3-5 drawings a day. We find the AutoDeco assistant is the best way of providing a quick and easy enhancement of a basic design. I do have a few designers who then go the extra distance for some really flashy effects but mainly on the top end kitchens.

    Hi all,

    does Pets and animals, etc…are really the priority ?

    Remember that 2020 is used all around the word and decorative items like we have in the cloud are for me really important.

    Pets and things like that can be found on 3DWarehouse.

    We have near than 400 users in RB showrooms all around the word and they never ask me to create things like that.

Please note though that the decorative catalog is there for non-manufacturer specific products and items to dress your designs to provide more realism for your customers.

I’m in Canada is there a way to access these other catalogs such as the Decorative Items and how do I do so? Also is it possible to import images for surfaces with the 2020 Design?

    Hi Debbiem,

    There are a collection of wall and stand mounted TV’s which are available today within the Decorative catalog.

    These products can be found under the ‘Televisions’ section within the table of contents drop down filer (3rd filter from the top of the 2020 Cloud product browser).

    Alternatively, you can type ‘television’ into the filter field.

    Many thanks

    Please can you confirm whether you can find the products you are looking for on page 2?

    Thank you Shaun! Yes I see now that there is a page two. I just didn’t see that! The fonts on my laptop are set so small because I also use a separate monitor and this was the only way tech support could set it up (I don’t understand this and maybe I can find a forum to help me with it) that I just didn’t see the page arrow. Thank you so much for pointing it out to me. This is the first time I’ve used the forum and I’m impressed!! Thanks again.

    Hmm – that’s an interesting one. Sounds like a system setting, rather than a 2020 Design setting.  Are other application font small on that screen too? Depending on your screen resolution & OS, you could try something like this (this is for Windows 10):

    I’ve used this technique in the past – you can adjust differently for each screen. You probably have to sign out & back in to Windows to see any changes.

    Hope that helps….

    Hi. My coworker & I are fairly new to using 2020 Cloud, and we’re struggling. Right now I’m trying to add pendant light fixtures to my design and, of course, those used to be in the Drag & Drop list in the Room catalog.  All that remains there now is reference to the Cloud.  Accessing the Cloud, I only find appliance catalogs.  Sorry if I’m behind the rest of the group…I’m sure i’m overlooking something. If I need to add a lighting catalog, where would I find those, and how would I add?  Thanks in advance.

    Window Example

    These types of windows are becoming so popular and yet theres few ways to accomplish.

    Can we please please please add better windows (and doors). Why is it that half of the windows and doors in the ROOM catalog have the option in variables to change the frame style but when you change it, no visual change occurs.  Also, can’t we get some more “architectural” windows and doors? Arched and Barn Doors would be great, both interior and entryways (for the Arched that is). Also arched doorways that have casing molding on them should be available. Sometimes it seems like the basics are missing and yet intricate detailed pieces are being added instead.

    Hello Jonathan,

    You bring out a good point.  We will look into adding new architectural windows and doors into our ROOM catalog.  Please provide us with various examples (with pictures) of popular doors and window styles (including dimensions ranges) you think should be added.

    Can you contact [email protected] with the items models you feel are missing “basics”?  We would like to follow-up.

    I used to use my drop down menus for lighting and I was able to manipulate them so much.  It was very important to the overall look of my renderings.  Now I have such little control over my own lighting with the cloud.  No fixtures in the cloud are any I would put in my designs.  I wish they would keep it simple so that we could manipulate them as we need to, i.e.: size, shape, color, light output.  Please tell me this will change.

    Hi Jodi,

    The Lighting you used to use from the Room_fur catalog is still available.  In the catalog categories, just above the notification that we have moved stuff to the cloud you should see Lighting Fixtures.  If you click on that it should open up to the lighting you have always used.

    Hello I just want to say that I have been playing with the 2020 cloud for about a week now and without the ability to change the dimensions and color of the decoration models they are quite useless. I am currently trying to add curtains to a window but all of your curtains are 94″ long. Nobody putts curtains on a sliding glass window so your models are useless in any real world situations.

    Hi Chris,

    Just an update.  Further testing here has found that it works.  Which version of 2020 are you running?  Also when you are in the cloud, when you click on the catalog drop down, where it says 2020 Decorative Items US, on the right it will show you the version of the catalog.  You want it to be 12.2.

    Thank you for looking into this for me Neil. I am running version 2020 Design  (11.8.0.53) 2017-06-01. I am using the 12.2 catalog. I tested the dimension of the blinds along with an assortment of other items. Everything seems to working fine now. I appreciate your help and would like to say I have never seen such a speedy fix to a program like this. Thank you!

    Chris.

    Hi. I am new to 2020 cloud. Can anyone direct me to find the ceiling lights? How can I add these lighting into my drawings. Thank you.

    Hi John Paul,

    You can find a bunch of lights in the cloud by selecting 2020 in the manufacturers field in the browse tab of the Cloud and typing “ceiling light” in the filter field.  The only drawback of using lighting fixtures from the cloud is that they haven’t added the actual light to the images yet so they don’t generate any illumination.  The Lighting fixtures that are available in the Room_Fur catalog still put out light so for that I would recommend using them.

    Hope that helps

    Wow, has anyone else had this happen…when placing an order through 2020 Live Order, has uploaded design rejected until items, placed in the design from the Cloud, were deleted from the design. I’ve had it happen  a few times. Astonishing! Irritating! 2020 never ceases to amaze…

    Hi James,

    We are aware of the issue with uploading cloud items to Live Order and are working to resolve it in an upcoming release.

    Hi Julie,

    This is one of the rare occasions where the North American market is behind the curve.  The people have been added to the UK market region but have not yet been added to the North American market region.  You can change your market region in your 2020spaces profile.
