View your building model in 2D

This article shows you how to view your building model in the 2D floor plan mode and how to navigate in it

To view your building model in the 2D floor plan mode you first have to log in to your Archilogic dashboard. Then find the model you wish to open in the list and double-click the entry of the respective building model.

The preview page of the selected model will open.

Left-click the small 2D button in the lower left-hand corner of the canvas to switch to the 2D floor plan mode if it’s not already active.

In the 2D floor plan mode, you can move the camera by either left-click and dragging your mouse cursor on desktop devices or by dragging your finger over the screen on mobile devices.

To zoom in you can use your mouse wheel on desktop devices or use two fingers to pinch in or stretch out.

Space breakdown and interactivity

In the inspector panel on the right side of the window, you have 2 tabs. The Details tab allows you to edit the metadata of your model while the Space breakdown shows you various floor metrics such as the overall area in either m² or ft² depending on your account settings. You can also see the number of windows and doors within the space and finally also compare the overall number of seats to the actual work seating capacity.

The Space summary gives you more information about the individual rooms and areas within the model. Each line item is referencing a room or an area in the model and contains the names of all interior assets that were placed into said area.

Selecting a room or area

When selecting the line item in the list by left-clicking it the camera of the floor plan view will zoom to the selected room or area. The same is valid if you select a room or area in the floor plan view by left-clicking it.

Selecting an interior asset

You can also select an interior asset within a room by left-clicking it in the Inspector panel or in the floor plan view. Once selected a small pop-up will show up above the floor plan view which contains additional information about the selected interior asset such as name, manufacturer, and dimensions but also its asset and product IDs.

You can switch to the 3D view mode at any time by clicking the 3D button in the lower left-hand corner of the canvas.
