Are customers asking for products tailored to their exact needs, but can’t afford your price? Do you have too much waste of the most expensive materials?

Are you still not making enough profit?
KicoGlass addresses all of these issues and many more. It helps you to get organised better, so you and your employees can work more efficient and become more productive.

KicoGlass will be extended soon by an advanced production management tool which will allow you to better plan production, to generate production batches.

 How to draw a splashback in KicoDraw using cutouts 

This tutorial shows you how to create a splashback in KicoDraw using measurements and cutouts.  You can create this by viewing cut-outs from the already existing cut-out catalogue, for example you can position where you want your cabinets to go and power point sockets.

  Cut Outs Catalogue in KicoDraw 

In this short snippet we show you the full Cut Out catalogue in KicoDraw, and just like the Shapes catelogue, you also have the option of creating and adding your own Cut Outs and saving to the pre existing catalogue.


How to Create a job in KicoGlass 

In this tutorial we show you how to create a job in KicoGlass, starting by selecting your category, products, quantity, position and adding a description. Add your glass components, then add processing, if any, to the job item, and then add the customer to the job.  The above tutorial is an example of an insulated glass unit, showing glass components, parametres, spacer, lenght and thickness.  


Adding Customers in KicoGlass 

You can build your customers list as you go or you can enter them before you start. You can allocate a price group to customers, for example wholesale or retail. You can set up your own price groups and then allocate customers to them. You can also download your customers list as well, for example for emailing. 


KicoGlass Pricing


There are several levels of subscription. Pricing is user-and - volume based. There are options to which you can subscribe to separately. Those again are based on your subscription level. All subscriptions include the basic cloud platform functions. Volume and number of users on that part determine on what subscription level you are, and thus in what subscription level your additional options come. Some of the additional options will give you additional users as well. People with access to advanced options (for example the accounting interface) will have access to the basic functions as well,  but you can control who has access to which advanced options. With some add on modules (to come later) there will be users with restricted access only, for example for progress reporting from the factory floor. Prices are set to what we see appropriate at this early stage and are subject to change later.  However, if you sign up now at these prices, we will guarantee them to stay close to the price you signed up for. 
Volume Calulation: Volume is calculated on the number of order items entered. Each simple order item counts as one unit of volume. Non- rectangular shapes count as two units, and pieces with (any number of) cut outs or holes count as two units as well, as long as they are rectangular. Non-rectangular shapes with holes and/or cut outs count as three units. Please be aware that we will not restrict you or your work in any way, if you exceed the number of units on your subscription level. However, if you consistently and significantly exceed the volume of your subscription level over an extended period of time, then we will have to upgrade you to the next higher level. All prices are in AUD, excluding GST.  For other currencies please enquire for a firm quote, or as a guide just use the current exchange rate.

Getting started in KicoGlass


When you first sign up to KicoGlass, to get started the first thing you do is set up your price structures. In here you set up your materials, products and pricing. In your materials list you specify stock sizes as well, and you can specify suppliers and purchase price too. For edging and cut outs you specify ranges, for example polishing up to 4mm, 6mm, 10mm etc.
For production you set up all your processing steps, and for all products specified you will have to specify the processing steps they have to undergo. Some processing steps will be added by the system. So if for example, you specify the product clear 6mm toughened, then you might require this to be polished, so the processing steps are cutting, polishing, washing and toughening. If a piece has cut outs, then that processing step is added by the system. For products and pieces ordered in externally you can specify the suppliers and their prices as well, so the system is able to quote for that too.
For a start you can enter the most commonly used price structures and add the others as you go. The system will always complain if it does not have a price, so you can add that the first time you need it. Once you have set up everything, you are ready to go. Enter products and sizes and the system will work out prices for you.
Adding Customers
You can build your customers list as you go, or you can enter them before you start. You can allocate a price group to customers, for example wholesale or retail. You can set up your customers list as well, for example, for emailing. Within your materials you have a default list which comes already with KicoGlass with the most commonly used glass types. You also have a Notes section where you can add notes to different jobs. You can also edit and delete notes as you update your jobs.


Learn more about what KicoDraw can do for you

In treatment mode you can specify holes and cut outs. As with the shapes, KicoDraw comes with a large catalogue of predefined cut outs, many of them belonging to specific hardware, for example, hinges. There are three types of cut outs, depending on their placement, you can place a cut out in a corner, on an edge (example for a hinge), or inside the piece (for a power point). And as with Shapes, you can define your own cut outs as well, and add them to your catalogue.  The image below shows a kitchen splash back, higher in the centre and rounded rectangular cut outs in the top corners for the over heads, with two cut outs for power points in the bottom corners.

Do you have customers ordering electronically? Or do they just send drawings of complicated shapes per email? KicoDraw has a dxf import function that can handle a lot. Even if a shape is not perfectly closed, it will figure it out. Or if it contains duplicate lines, KicoDraw can handle that. The dxf import function can even figure out what drawing elements are part of the shape, and which ones belong to cut outs. And it will even try to figure out if such a cut out is in your catalogue and if it has a price already. Does your dxf contain polylines or just hundreds of small elements stemming from a digitisation process? KicoDraw can handle that. It comes with a sophisticated interpolation function that segments your complex curve in a sequence of larger arcs and lines, something your glass cutter can handle easily.
