Detailed Introduction:

1.【General Features】

1.1【Function】Added wainscoting model

In design, we always use wainscoting for wall design. A new catalog of wainscot models has been added to the Model Library-Structure. You can choose between the normal or parametric types of wainscot models. Simply drag a single wall panel in the design, quickly adjust the parameters and generate Cap Molding and Baseboard in the right property panel. Then you can also apply the edited wainscot to the current wall or whole room by simply clicking the button in the bottom right corner.

1.2【Function】Measurement tools supported in 3d and walkthrough views

Switch to 3D/Roam view in the design interface and click "Measure" in the tool. You can also mark multiple dimensions at the same time for reference without exiting the measurement function.

1.3【Function】Supported setting single side door pocket

After placing the door model, you can now set up different door pockets in the style interface on the right. Unlike previously you can only turn on or off the pocket option, you can now determine which side of the wall to apear with the pocket, so it can help us create some indoor invisible door type.

2.【Custom Furniture】

The new custom furniture just launched!

In Custom Furniture, you can design kitchen cabinets, closets, shelves and other furniture easily. Various components and parameters give you flexibility in designing custom furniture.

*Note: Please be aware that the custom furniture function does not support the multi-floor for the moment. If you have multi floors or a basement in your design, you will not be able to enter the Custom Furniture environment, nor further edit the cabinet you built.

1.Where to enter the Custom Furniture (beta)?

You can enter it through the Cutstomize catalog on the left.

3.【Interior Modeling 2.0】

3.1【Interior Modeling 2.0】Added model grouping list

The group list function allows you to manage lines, faces and combinations of shapes efficiently. And you can quickly rename, hide, and categorize these modeled shapes. After drawing a shape in the Interior Modeling interface, you can view all the faces of the shape and the grouped shapes in the "Group List" on the right side.

3.2【Interior Modeling 2.0】Supported automatic grouping after using the array function

Array function is a common function in modeling. However,  previously we have to regroup the models after each use. This update will automatically group all the models after the array, which make it more convenient.

3.3【Interior Modeling 2.0】Supported 3D text wrapping input, and move and rotate freely

When editing and inputting 3D text, the 3D text in the program can be synchronized with line feeds in the right input box (you can press "Enter" to start a new line). This function can solve the needs of different text arrangements. After selecting the 3d text, you can drag three axes to rotate and move it like other furniture models.
