Visrez Floor Plan Builder

Visrez Floor Plan Builder allows non-technical users to create professional standard 3D event plans. Sales teams, operations, planners and clients love Visrez because they can create amazing 3D event plans using exact replicas of their spaces and furniture. Thousands of spaces worldwide are activated on the platform and our team is constantly improving the tools based on user feedback. Visrez has grown entirely by word of mouth with no outside investment by providing great products backed up by superb customer support.

Drag & Drop

Select Tool with Move & Rotate


The move and rotate icons appears automatically when an object is selected.

Draw Styles


The Build Tool allows users to create plans in many different ways and is fun to work with. Users can specify the exact number of objects or draw with the mouse to fill the space. Sliders adjust the front to back or side to side spacing and you can also set the Aisle spacing or inner diameter for circle or semi-circle layouts.

Leaving the number field empty allows you to draw a set-up by clicking and dragging the mouse inside the spаce. You can increase or decrease the selected area using the blue markers to add more objects.

All styles can be adjusted using the layout style buttons and the object spacing allows you to increase or decrease the amount of spacing between furniture. Once the set looks good, click  Save or Clear to start over.

The Main Menu


Upper & Lower Menus


Shortkeys & Tricks


A list of shortcut keys is in the Guide in the top right corner of your builder.

Lock the Camera


The lock function allows you to stop the room from rotating. Objects can be selected, moved, duplicated or rotated without the space moving and you can zoom in / out of the space without moving it sideways.

Layers & Airwalls


In the bottom left corner of the menu you will find the layers tool. This tool opens up a right side panel which contains a list of the elements within your space which can be turned on-off. Airwalls can be represented by a number or letter which allows them to be opened or closed. They can either be fully opened or closed. To partially divide a space it is recommended to use a room divider object from the Visrez library.

The carpets and flooring elements in a space can also be deactivated using the layers tool as quite often the design pattern on carpets can be quite busy and make it difficult to view the furniture in the plan.

In some event spaces there can be fixed seating elements which can be removed as a block to allow different furniture to be set-up in those areas.

In outdoor event spaces layers can be used to switch off elements such as trees, string lights or fixed objects such as tents, gazebos or catering trucks to allow you to build the plan without the distraction. 

Theme Settings


In the bottom horizontal menu there is a settings icon which does a couple of things. You can switch the builder background from black to white and adjust the level of sunlight in the plans based on the time of day. This is a great way to bring outdoor event plans to life by showing where the sun will be throughout the event.

To start a new event plan go to the Plans page, and select Space from the dropdown menu. This will open up a blank builder of that space to allow you to create a plan using an empty space. Inside your builder you can also find all the plans created by all team members by clicking on the Open button in the top menu.

Visrez Furniture Library


The Visrez Library is built into every user account and shared with all team members. Any object from the Visrez library can be used in event plans. Objects added to the client collection are available to all team members. New objects are added weekly by the Visrez team based on client requests.

Clicking the + beside the object in the Visrez Library will add it to your collection. To remove an object from the collection or archived if already used in a plan you simple do the opposite and un-check the object. Clicking the + beside the object in the Visrez Library will add it to your collection. To remove an object from the collection or archived if already used in a plan you simple do the opposite and un-check the object.

Collaboration and Sharing

Visrez allows users to export plans in multiple formats including Interactive Shared Links, PDFs and PNG images. Plans can be exported in 3D with multiple views, 2D or black and white schematic format. You can include notes, equipment , table numbers, dimensions and other information. PDFs have a range of views and elements which can be added to all PDF exports. Floor Plan Builder exports all come with a built in link to the shared plan so all your client needs to do is click to load the interactive version. Any changes made in the editor appear immediately in the shared version so if you update the plan you don’t need to share a new link, the client just refreshes to see the latest version.

3D, 2D, Colour and Black & White


Visrez gives you the formats you need to communicate effectively to all stakeholders. Plans can be exported in full color 3D or 2D Black and White in the same PDF. From a sales perspective the 3D version is more impressive but many operations teams prefer to work from black and white format. All view types exported in a PDF will link to the interactive plan by clicking on the diagram.

Equipment Breakdown Page


Users can export a breakdown of all the furniture used in the event set up along with a thumbnail image in a separate table. This breakdown can be included in your PDF export or on its own as a separate PDF. This is a really useful way to provide both the client and the operations team with a summary of all the furniture and staging props required in any event plan. This information can be used like a checklist for the set-up team to make sure they have all the necessary elements in place for the event.

Plan Settings Information


Additional event information such as Date, Time, BEO , Notes can be added to the PDF under the plan settings. This is displayed below the client logo at the top of the PDF exports providing a reference to the BEO or Client details in the PDF distributed to the team. The Plan settings also marks if a plan has been client approved.

Shared Links

The Shared Link allows your client to view, approve or request edit access to any builder plan. This is the fastest way to share an event plan with a client or partner. Shared links update in real time so if you make a change to your plan all your client has to do is refresh to get the most up to date version. You do not need to resend a new link any changes to the plans update in real time.

Sharing With Tags


Tags are displayed on the plans page and you can filter all tags in the dropdown controls at the top of the page. Tags are a great way to organize plans by respective client names rather than creating sub-folders within your account you simply tag the plan with the client name and then you can filter plans by that tag.

Users can invite other team members to collaborate on the same plan within their accounts by using the Share > Team option. This allows multiple users in the same team to work together on any event plan once they are invited by the plan creator. Users can still copy another user’s event plan but if you need to work with colleagues on the same event plan its best to other members to the plan. To do this click on Share > Team and select the users from the right sidebar to invite them to the plan. When a plan is shared amongst team members an icon is displayed on the /plans page to indicate it is shared amongst team members.

Sharing Multiple Plans Outside Visrez


Visrez generates a URL for the tag so you can send a link to your client which displays all the plans tagged for their event. Plans can be shared outside Visrez without the user needing to have an account. So if a client is considering multiple spaces you can share a page outside your account with all the plans in all spaces.

Event Plan Approvals


Getting client approval is vital to ensure the smooth set-up of an event and Visrez comes with a built-in approval feature where clients can formally accept their event plan on the shared link. Once a plan has been approved, both owner of the plan and client are notified by email and the plan is marked in your account.

Revoke approval
Approvals can be revoked from the plan controls.

Inviting Event Planners and Outside Partners


Event planners and outside partners can be invited to your team’s Visrez account to edit plans which have been shared with them. This allows your team to collaborate with outside event planners and third party suppliers on any Floor Plan Builder diagram. Partners can be invited to plans by any team member and once the partner has registered their account they have access only to the plans shared with them.

Partners do not have access to the Visrez library or any other areas of your team account. Planners & Partners cannot select furniture or objects from the Visrez library but can use the client collection.

To invite an event planner or third partner to your plan select the Share > Partner option from the Share menu in the top of your builder.

Clicking on the Share > Partner option will display a list of the registered partners who can be invite to collaborate on the event plan.

Invite and Add Partners


Partners have to be registered on your Team account before they can be invited to collaborate on any builder plans. All users can invite partners to event plans by clicking on the Manage contacts & partners in lower right hand side of the homepage.

To add a partner to your Team’s Visrez account just Click on the Plus + and enter in the Partner’s email address and save.

What Partners See


Partners receive an email notification displaying the branding of the property they have been invited to. Once they have registered on Visrez they see a /plans page displaying all the diagrams shared with them by the on-property contact. Planner accounts can include event plans across more than one property if they work with other venues which use Visrez and have been invited to those accounts.

When an event plan is shared with a partner a new icon is displayed on the /plans page so you can tell it is shared outside the team.

Advanced Features

Stages


There are many ways to add stages to your event floor plans in the Builder. You can drop in a specific stage size from the Visrez library or create custom stages to any size using the Builder tools. It is fun to watch a stage being created to scale inside your 3D event plan. Select the stage object from the Library and choose between adding a specific number or Build Stages & Platforms options.

Dancefloors


There are a few ways to add dancefloors to your event floor plans in the Builder. You can drop in a specific dancefloor straight from the Visrez library or create a custom size using the Builder. The build option allows you to drag your mouse to the size you need and the dancefloor gets built automatically. Both options are shown in the animation and you can see how easy it is to create dancefloors of any size.

Rigging a Truss


To drop screens into the space from the ceiling you can use the Truss Rigging feature which allows you to hang horizontal trusses at variable heights over your space and hang screens (or lights) from those. This is done using the suspend to ceiling feature and the Move tool when active with + / – Hotkeys to increase or decrease the height. The initial height is parallel to the top of the walls for an indoor space or at the height of the tallest object in outdoor spaces.

Text Notes in Plans


The text tool is located at the bottom of the main menu which allows you to add notes onto your plans. This is a great way to mark up plans before sharing with clients for feedback and approval. To add notes click on any point or object on the floor plan and then write the notes in the text box. Font, color and size can be adjusted in the sidebar along with the text box background to ensure it clearly stands out against the floor texture. Text can be placed on top of objects such as tables, stages and dancefloors.

Graphics Tool


Just click on the model and drag the arrow or Circles & Square options to save it onto the floor plan. This is a great way to indicate large event spaces and the drawings are displayed in PDF exports. Directional arrows allow you to indicate the flow of traffic in an event diagram to differentiate between entry and exits.

Client Logos in Plans


Sharing a 3D event plan featuring their logo on screen guarantees a great first impression and will help your venue stand head and shoulders above the competition. In the Audio Visual category of the Visrez library, you will notice the screens display an icon beside the + or check mark. This icon indicates that this object allows users to upload a logo for your plans. Once the editable object has been added to your collection you will see that the image icon is blue to indicate that you can upload a logo to your library and then select that logo from inside your builder.

Table Numbers


The first step is to draw on table numbers and save them in your plan. This can be done by either clicking on the tables one at a time or by clicking the left mouse button and drawing a path over the tables. Numbers must be saved before you can upload your list so once you are happy with the order click save.

Table Numbers can be rotated or styled to fit any room orientation.

Share > PDF Export Settings > Show Table Numbers > Tag Options.

Importing Guest Lists


Guest Lists can be added by either uploading a CSV file or by entering guests manually on a table-per-table basis. Importing a CSV file is a lot faster than entering the names one by one so we recommend this option. The guest list tool is only activated when tables have been saved to your event plan.

Importing Guest Lists from CSV


The quickest way to populate a guest list is to import from a CSV file. After table numbers have been saved you can then import a CSV file by dragging it from your computer or by clicking within the import area.

CSV files should be formatted as follows

Adding or Editing Guests without Import


Guests can also be added on a per-table basis by clicking the table and selecting the guests’ tool in the left side menu. Using the Add tool you can then manually enter guest names, and table names for each table in your plan. Once guests have been imported, all names in the plan are listed under the View tab.

Guest lists can be exported as a PDF under the Share > Export option

Exporting Guest Lists


Guest lists can be exported with the event plans or as a PDF from the share settings.

Copy & Paste Plans from One Space to Another


If you have created a plan in one space and would like to see how it looks in another space you do not need to remake the plan as you can copy and paste from one space to another.  

In your Event Plan – CTRL & A (to select everything) and CTRL & C (to copy)

Open the new event space from the Plans Page (An empty space) CTRL & V to paste into that space.

All spaces have different dimensions so will need to adjust to fit using the Move and Rotate Tools.

Creating 3D Plans from CSV Files


Capacity charts can now be converted into 3D Event plans with one go. Users can generate 3D event plans for every space and set-up style just by uploading a CSV file to their account or by entering in the desired setups and capacities. Automating the creation of 3D Event plans is a massive timesaver for sales, catering and operations teams as they now have the ability to quickly generate an unlimited number of 3D Plans from a single CSV upload for each space.

How to Rig Lights


Not an everyday feature but a very nice option to impress your client by adding coloured lights onto screens, backdrops or walls to create some genuine atmosphere in your event plans. It is easy to do once you have selected the right objects from the library and these can be placed on the ground to hung from a truss depending on the plan.

Pricing

Floor Plan Builder is an intuitive tool allowing non-technical users to create professional standard 3D event plans using exact replicas of the spaces and furniture. Since launching in 2019 it has grown by word of mouth to serve more than four thousand users worldwide thanks to the quality of the product and support. Visrez has been built without outside investment by enhancing our platform consistently for our users.

  • What if a space can be divided multiple times ?

    If a space can be subdivided multiple times using airwalls these are not counted as new spaces. It doesn't matter how many dividing walls in the space, you pay for just one space regardless of the dimensions or details. Visrez has generated photorealistic 3D Models of thousands of events spaces worldwide, so no interior is a problem for our team to recreate.

  • Are Lobbies, Foyers counted as additional spaces ?

    We includes lobbies, foyers, terraces, patios, lawns and connected spaces as part of the model however full floors are not considered single spaces. Whilst it is not an exact science, we are reasonable and do our best to provide great value for money as our clients will attest.

  • What if I can’t find our exact furniture in the Library ?

    If the exact furniture does not exist in the Visrez library our team will create the furniture and add to the library at no additional charge. As the library is shared with all our users it makes it valuable if everyone has access to an extensive library of furniture.

  • Can my clients collaborate on the plans too ?

    Yes, clients can collaborate on event plans in Visrez once they have been added as 'Partners' in your account. This is explained in detail in the Visrez user guide under Collaboration & Sharing.

  • What happens if we redesign or renovate our spaces ?

    Event Space renovations and redesigns are included in the annual fee so if you update your spaces we match the new interiors. This can be done before construction is completed if interior design guides are provided.

  • What if our event spaces are not built yet ?

    Visrez can create event space models during preopening if enough details can be provided from the architects or interior designers. This will give your team a headstart with preopening sales and the spaces can be updated to match the finished interiors when those are ready.

  • Are there limits to the number of users in Visrez ?

    There is no restriction to the number of users you can have in Visrez. Admin users on each account can add or remove team members without contacting Visrez support. As far as we are concerned the more users you have on your team the better which is why we don't charge per user account.

  • Does Visrez offer live training sessions ?

    Live training sessions are arranged for your team once the spaces are activated and ready to use. These usually take 30 minutes to one hour and cover all aspects of using Visrez.

  • Does Visrez charge for Training Sessions ?

    No, there is no charge for live training sessions. We enjoy connecting with users and find training sessions are a valuable way to learn how they interact with the tools.

  • How long does it take to get activated on Visrez ?

    Once good quality reference assets are provided our team will generate a draft 3D Model of your space within a few days which is uploaded to your account. All members of your team will be notified once the event space is ready for review.

  • Do we need to sign a contract ?

    A contract is provided during the setup with the same terms and conditions applied to all accounts. Each space is activated on an annual basis so you are charged during set up and 12 months later at the time of renewal. Visrez does not impose multi-year contracts and there are no penalties or fixed annual price increases. If thats not your thing we suggest you sign with Cvent.
