Scale, Frame and Communicate… oh my!

February was a big month for us with eight key features unlocked today: Scale, Frame, Align, Add Shapes, Text, Comment and Import + Export work. With all these features you can now:

Space Plan

(Go from concepts to layouts in one tool)

Designers, how many times have you wished there was a tool that allowed you to create concepts and space plan at the same time? With scale you can add your floor plan backgrounds, scale it and start creating layouts right next to your concepts.   

Learn how to import your import and scale your plans.

Sharing your work with your project partners and customers is a vital part of the design process. With frames, align, text and shapes, you can now create your own presentation layouts. Whether you want to show concepts, a space plan, specifications or all the above, create the format that works best for you. Also import/export your work as pdf, jpeg, or png.

Learn how to use frames to create your presentation. 

Frame your workspace

Hack It

(Don't start from scratch)

Let's be real, every designer starts their process differently. Whether you start by finding inspiration, organizing a framework or jumping right into space planning. Now in one place you can do all three! And we have templates to help you get started.

👀 Sneak Peek

We are pumped for March’s Unlock!  

March focuses on features that give designers the ability to turn concepts into refined projects and develop technical specifications, budgets and presentations more easily. 

While January and February ushered in features that supported the designers upstream workflow: concepting, space planning, specifying, collaborating and presenting their work; March will round out the entire design process by allowing designers to see their designs turned into refined projects. Highly anticipated features coming include: bringing in technical project needs like milestones, furniture schedules, budgets, area planning and even inventory management tracking. Designers will now be able to create formal projects with budgets that are pulled directly from their designs. Imagine a world where once you are done designing your project is already magically created with budgets, technical specifications, milestones, lead times and carbon footprint... 

Excited about this?, so are we. Stay tuned for more updates.
