Now you can also bring RoomSketcher with you on the go, as you can access My Account on any mobile device. You can view your projects, media and purchases, keep track of the progress of your orders, and order Ready Made Floor Plans, all straight from your mobile device. RoomSketcher VIP and Pro subscribers can easily view and show projects in Live 3D on the go.
Live 3D Floor Plans
Live 3D Floor Plans really take property visualizations to the next level. Users can navigate projects as if they are touring an actual property – walking from room-to-room, turning around, stepping closer or farther away. They can use a male or female avatar to navigate around the floor plan, or fly above the floor plan to get a true feel for the overall layout.
Live 3D Floor Plans are ideal for all types of project and property visualization such as new homes, renovations, design and development projects. Enable potential clients to tour homes from their computer or mobile device. Marketing with Live 3D Floor Plans allows your properties and project to stand out from the crowd!
RoomSketcher VIP and Pro users have Live 3D available for all projects. Live 3D Floor Plans can be shared so that friends, family, and clients can experience them, by enabling Share Live 3D Floor Plans for specific projects.
Once you enable sharing, RoomSketcher generates two links for the project:
RoomSketcher 3D Walk– This link allows users to experience your project in Live 3D, either from their personal computer, or from their mobile device.
RoomSketcher Home Designer– This link allows users to experience your designs in Live 3D, plus make changes and customizations to their copy of the floor plans, using Home Designer’s user-friendly drag-and-drop interface.
Simply copy and paste the link into an email message or embed it on your website. Your user simply clicks on the link to access the project- there is nothing that they need to download.
