Upload

Please select the right category for models because the system will add specific feature for the model upload. For example:

  • If you upload a door and selected correct category, it will open a wall opening on wall that match the door. Also if you uploaded a swing/single door type, this door can ben opened or closed in 3D view when design.

  • If you upload a arched window, it will open a wall hole that match the window, which saves your time to create an opening for the window you uploaded.

  • If you upload a lamp with correct category, the lamp model can be switched on/off in rendering interface with adjustment in brightness. If you select floor lamp, it will be placed on the floor when you drag it into your design. Similarly, ceiling lamps will be dragged into your design adhering to the ceiling.
