Mapping the kitchen in D3

I recently updated my Disguise D3 training, re-taking the fundamentals course, then adding the creative sequencing and systems integrations courses. 4 days at Disguise’s offices in London.

I always like to put things I learn into practice, so I thought I’d map my kitchen. Essentially creating a 3d map of the kitchen within the D3 software and making every door, drawer and worktop into a video surface.

This took a few moments of head scratching, some measurements, and a few cups of tea.

In the video below you can see the initial results with each surface as an individual video surface.

But as there is more than one way to map your kitchen, the video below demonstrates some creative sequencing using various maps in elements of the kitchen. It also shows a feed map using all of the surfaces to create a single video.

Using a camera eye view to view elements. I think that I lost the plot in the dishwasher drain though!!!

I fitted the kitchen a couple of years ago with the aid of my dog Smudger supervising, so if you need someone to fit or map your kitchen give me a call!
