Spring update: improving Floorplans

It has been some time since you’ve heard from us. We’re happy to mention some improvements and updates of the Floorplanner tool. Lately, we've been working hard on improving Roomstyler and Floorplanner simultaneously.

New drawing features

We added some little details that could matter for a lot of our users.

  1. Rotate your entire plan at a custom angle. This is ideal for drawing plans with rooms at an angle, like the one displayed.
  2. The option to get the total floor area of your plan. You can see in one go the total square size of all your auto-generated rooms, and also of your custom surfaces. We’ve had the option in m2 for some time now, but now we also added the option in square feet.
  3. Extra assets. The last months we’ve added plumbing symbols, server- and network equipment, a tennis court and an indoor soccer field. Also we improved the look of some assets like our TV screens.

Tutorials & Tricks

We started a series of tutorial movies in which we explain how to draw in Floorplanner. Every now and then we will add a new movie showing some new tricks or features to get the plans you need.

Also, we added some documents with Tips and Tricks on several subjects. For instance: How to draw an Attic, How to add a legend, Repairing your floorplan We’re glad to see that since then, the quality of attic plans has been visibly improved, and we see more and more people using floorplanner for electric- and plumbing plans with a legend explaining all the symbols.

Czech version!

In january we released a Czech version! We hope to bring all the floorplanner goodness to the Czech- and the Slovak republic. Thanks to our dedicated translators!
