Smart-Splashback is the newest addition to the world-leading Smart-Builder range
of software. Smart-Splashback brings Smart-Builder's glass design expertise to kitchen
and bathroom splashbacks — popular features in modern homes.
Smart-Splashback is designed with the unique needs of splashback designers and installers
in mind. Smart-Splashback accommodates the need for high precision in glass measurements
and the wide variety of shapes and cutouts needed in splashback design. Of course,
Smart-Splashback also includes the intuitive interface, 3D drawing and job management
common to all Smart-Builder design products.

Toughened glass is expensive and the tolerances required for splashbacks are extremely
tight. The cost of unusable glass can be significant, not to mention the delays
caused by having to reorder panels. Smart-Splashback eliminates wastage by taking
care of the glass size calculations for you and producing detailed glass order drawings
at the touch of a button. No more issues with misaligned cut-outs or notches, or
forgotten deductions for overlapping panels. Smart-Splashback ensures millimetre
accuracy for all your glass measurements.
First impressions are critical to making sales. The presentation and professionalism
of your quote is a key element in turning potential customers into paying ones.
Smart-Splashback gives your business a serious edge with its realistic 3D images.
Show your design to customers onscreen, in fully rotatable, zoomable 3D, or add
images to your quotes to make your firm stand out from your competitors. Either
way, Smart-Splashback will give you the edge.
Smart-Splashback's integrated pricing scheme makes it easier than ever to go from
design to quoting to sales. Once your design is complete, Smart-Splashback's database
of glass types, processes and finishes automatically determines your costs, applies
your preferred markups for each and produces an accurate quote. All these elements
are completely under your control — changing the glass type for a splashback,
changing your markup on coatings or applying a trade discount will take mere seconds.
Smart-Splashback is more than just a complete design package: it's a powerful way
to manage your business's information. Have you ever had a customer call up to proceed
with a quote you can't even find any more? If you need to replace a panel in a splashback
you installed months or years ago, how do you know the panel's dimensions without
going out and re-measuring? Smart-Splashback keeps a database of all your quotes
and installations, fully searchable and each available at the touch of a button.
If you want even more then upgrade to Smart-Toolbox for full
sales and operations support for your glass business.
Smart-Splashback is built with the complexities of modern splashback design in mind.
It supports external and internal cutouts, in a range of shapes and sizes. Standard
cutouts for power points and taps can be defined and then quickly dragged to the
correct panel and edge, leaving only the exact offsets to be entered.
There is more to a modern splashback than a few rectangular panels. The Smart-Splashback
configurator is designed from the ground up to deal with the corners, steps and
notches, present in complex kitchen spaces. Smart-Splashback can also handle gaps
and stacked panels without difficulty.
Tolerances in splashbacks are tight; having software take care of your calculations
can give you confidence that you won't make a mistake and waste expensive glass.
However, there's no point in having these sophisticated calculations if you then
have to adjust them yourself to account for overlapping panels. Smart-Splashback
takes control of all calculations in your design: if you specify that your
panels overlap, Smart-Splashback automatically calculates the deduction. If you
change the glass thickness later, Smart-Splashback recalculates the deduction as
Smart-Splashback supports custom coatings and processes on your designs. Coatings
can range from clear protective treatments to full-colour paint on the back of the
glass. Visible surface coatings are shown on the 3D images, creating even more attractive
quotes. Edge and surface processes are supported, with area and linear pricing options;
processes can be added and changed easily, giving you full control over your splashbacks.
Smart-Splashback can export your design as DXF files, taking you from design to
manufacturing quickly and efficiently. Various export options are available, including
block size and finished sizes, with or without cutouts and run-ins.
Smart-Splashback's user interface has been built in a very user friendly way, it
allows the user to visually create shop-fronts and edit them, by dragging and dropping
panels onto the screen.
