Edit the tiles of your print layout

This article shows you how to further adjust the tiles of your print layout

Open print tile settings

Once you've selected a layout and a paper orientation for your document, you can adjust the separate tiles of your document manually. To do so, move your mouse over the tile you want to adjust in the document preview.

The tile beneath your mouse cursor will be greyed out and a pencil icon will appear. Click the pencil icon to open the settings menu of the tile.

Print tile types

There are four different tile types:

  • Header
  • 3D View
  • 2D Floor plan
  • Spatial insights

Each of these tile types has its own settings menu and offers different adjustment options:

Header

This tile allows you to decide whether or not to display your company logo and the name and address of your building model. The logo will only show up in the tile if one was uploaded to your Archilogic account. The address will only show up if the metadata of the model contains one

3D View

This tile allows you to choose between 4 different color styles for the 3D building model:

  • Classic - The regular Archilogic color style you're used to
  • Flat - A white style with black outlines
  • Sepia - A style containing a reddish-brown color
  • Black & White

The "Orthographic" switch lets you decide if you want to show your 3D model in a regular perspective mode or in an orthographic mode without a vanishing point.

Finally, you can choose from a set of existing camera bookmarks to change the camera position. You can also freely move the camera with your mouse the same way you do in the viewer. Don't forget to click the "Save" button once you're happy with your 3D view.

2D Floor plan

This tile allows you to display the floor plan in either the classic style with bold black lines or the thin style with only outlines.

The next 3 switches allow you to decide if you want to show the scale reference, furniture, or space labels in your floor plan. When the show space label toggle is activated you can further control if the space name, custom ID, usage, or size is shown in the 2D floor plan.
To customize space names and custom IDs you first have to enable these values in the organization settings.

The space dimension settings allow you to control whether the dimensions will be displayed in the square area or in the length and width of the room.

Finally, you can rotate the floor plan in 90-degree steps.

Don't forget to click the "Save" button once you're happy with the setup.

Spatial insights

This tile allows you to turn various numbers on and off. Please note that if, for example, a building model does not contain a meeting room, the number above the meeting room will be 0. In this case, you could switch this data point off to avoid presenting unnecessary information.

 

Once you're happy with the look and feel of your document, you can print or download the document as a PDF.
