Acme Brick VisionThis free app — Acme Brick Vision — allows users to view Acme’s brick product line on both residential and commercial building elevations, or as a brick sample in a close up view. Acme Brick Vision allows the user to pick an elevation, put their choice of brick on the building, and change variables such as mortar color, trim paint color, and roof color. With Acme Brick Vision it is possible to create more than one million unique combinations of brick, mortar, roof, and trim colors, the company says.

Acme Brick Vision has been updated with several new features that make it more useful than ever:

  • The photo gallery section shows enlarged views of brick panels and rendering, and adds any location photographs taken in the field of a specific product.
  • The all new favorites section allows the user to save sets of brick. These can then be shared with other users from within the app and includes a help section.
  • There are new elevations for rendering brick, and the mortar colors are updated to reflect the most current selections.
  • A new brochures section offers PDF brochures for Acme publications.

All the traditional features in the original version of Acme Brick Vision are in place. The Material Close Up option shows a brick wall section with different mortar colors. Both views can be enlarged to a full-screen view tailored to the viewer’s iPad model, and can be saved to the user’s camera roll. Brick selections can be searched by name, size, brick plant, or by color families. For each product listing, viewers can scroll to a detail page that provides a full set of technical specifications for that brick product.

Now more than ever, Acme Brick Vision enables consumers, architects and other building professionals to view and compare brick and mortar color selections and view them on site or wherever they have access to the Internet, Acme Brick says. This ability to view and compare selections indoors or out, at a moments notice will make the brick and mortar selection process more efficient and accurate. Acme Brick Vision can be downloaded from the Apple app store.
