Introduction

Introducing the new Floor Plan Editor. As Modus VR has grown, we've recognized the need to provide a more powerful and easier way to draw more complex spaces. The new Floor Plan Editor helps solve that problem. There are lots of key components to the new editor so we've created several different tutorial videos to help explain these concepts.

In this article we will be going through the steps to drawing out a floor plan. Each step has a tutorial video showing the controls and general best practices.

Step 1: Creating Spaces and Adding Reference Images

There's a few important steps to get you started on drawing a floor plan:

  1. Create a space through the Files tab.
  2. Choose between a Simple and Complex space.

We cover each of these steps in the video below.
