Floor Plan Builder – New Layout Creator

floorplan-builder

We are always looking for new ways to improve the experience our clients have with our products. We are currently working on a new set of tools within the floorplan builder which will substantially reduce the time it takes to create a new event plan. The new layout creator will allow a user to create a base layout at the point when a new layout is created.

New Layout

When creating a new layout there is a new option to select a template style to get started.

 

Selecting Objects

After a style is selected the user will then be prompted to select an object from the library which is related to that style chosen.

After selecting the desired object the user is presented with a simple set of options to create a base layout template.

  • Enter the capacity
  • Select the layout arrangement in length and width
  • Choose from the arrangement style
  • Select the distance between objects, standard, social distancing, or choose a custom distance using the slider.

Inserting the Layout

After clicking create just click on in the space to place the generated layout.

Example.

In this example, I create a theatre-style layout using suitable for post-covid-19 social distancing recommendations in less than a minute.
