Novelties in our designer - Changing perspectives in 3D

by KamilaSu 28. October 2014 09:06

Again, we have improved our designer and here comes the novelty. We decided to change not only ours but also your view of the drawings so we have added three different perspectives to the designer in 3D view mode. So now there is a side view, a top view and a view from the first person. Adding these views will greatly facilitate and improve the transparency of the work in the designer. Thanks to the perspective of the first person you will be able to take a stroll in your newly-designed flat and the views from the top and side will provide you with a complete overview of all partitions or furniture.

Where to find a view change and how to handle it? 

You can get very easily to the newly added views. Start a designer the way you would usually and start to draw. Or you can choose from one of the pre-drawn plans and adjust it to your liking. In the designer you can always enter the 3D view by clicking on the 3D icon. In this mode you can see three icons of individual views above your plan. These are: side view, top view and a view from the first person. Side view will allow you to look at all the exterior walls. It is appropriate to use it to check the placement of windows and doors. Top view shows you all the internal partitions and disposition of the furniture, so as to assure you that you haven´t forgot anything. You can then check everything "first-hand", thanks to the first person view, which allows you to go for a walk along the designed plan using the arrows.

Of course, it is up to you how you will use the different views. We hope that you will enjoy this novelty and that this intuitive solution will make your work in the designer even more pleasant.

 

Novelties in Our Designer - Corporate Colours

by KamilaSu 9. October 2014 14:57

We have prepared another novelty for you in our FloorPAD designer. This time we have focused on the colours of drawn plans and we give you the opportunity to create a plan in your corporate colours containing the logo of your company. 

How does it work? 

 

After logging into your account on our website you have to click on Settings and fill in your data. That means you have to fill in the company name, address, URL, preferred language, and of course the already mentioned logo with the size up to 100 KB. If it is exceeds this size limit it will be proportionally adjusted. 

Account data

 

When you are satisfied with the completed data click Save. After saving your settings, click on Publish plan customisation to go to the designer.

 

Designer gives you the possibility to change the colour of its background to your preferred corporate colours using the colour range window. 

Plan in corporate colors

 

After changing the background to your corporate colours all the plans you publish will match your company's website colours so your users will feel like they have never left your website.   

Range of colors

Such plans containing your logo can redirect customers to a specified URL. Therefore, when published on the Internet they can increase traffic to your website. 

For an example of an edited plan, see this link: http://www.floorpad.com/Fapp/Published.aspx?pubid=994ea295-d17d-41cc-beca-fe2b18e2948f

 

Enjoy the customisation!

by Barbora S. 10. January 2014 12:56

We weren't idle during the holidays and we are starting off the new year bringing you two innovations. The first one is an extension of floor menu.

The other innovation we have developed for you is a compass thanks to which you can orient in space more easily and determine the cardinal directions which play an important role in interior planning and design. Orientation according to the points of compass does not only influence the Feng shui energy flowing through the space but also the amount of sunshine entering the rooms during the day. The compass in FloorPAD will remind you of the cardinal directions during the whole process of planning and designing and will help you make the right decisions.

Note: To place a compass to a floor plan chose an item Compass from the Misc category (left-side menu). Consequently, you’ll be able to steer the compass.
