To get your 3D plan off to a good start, here are the different features offered by the interface. The toolbar is located at the top of your plan. It enables you to adjust your plan.
Here, you can manage and adjust your various floors: add a new level, adjust the ceiling height, change the name of a level, define the thickness of your slabs, define your plan elevation , make your floors independent, etc.
To find out more about level management, click here.
The "undo” and “redo” arrows
The “undo” arrow (the one on the left) enables an action to be cancelled.
The “redo” arrow enables a cancelled action to be redone.
Tip: you can also cancel an action using the key combination CTRL + Z or ⌘ Cmd + Z
Open the surface table
The number that appears here corresponds to the total living area of your project. Click on it to access the surface area table. Thanks to this, you can quickly visualise your floor space, living spaces (includes only the area whose ceiling height is above 1.80 metres), or outdoors.
You can also see details of all levels with their rooms, and details of the outdoors (driveway, garden, terrace, etc.).
Tip: If this number is displayed in orange, it is because you have an unqualified room. For an up-to-date surface area table, make sure you qualify the type of all your rooms (kitchen, living room, dining room...). Without this information, the name of the room will be in orange and the area of the room will not be taken into account in the surface table.
To set your area unit (cm², m² or in²), click here.

You can choose to activate or deactivate the magnetism of your walls and/or your furniture.
The magnetism of the walls is useful for drawing your walls with ease (straight walls, markers, details, good junctions of the walls). This magnetism can though hinder you in the design of a construction if it has an atypical layout, which is not uncommon for renovations.
The collision of objects is useful for placing your furniture against the walls, but can sometimes prevent you from being precise in the placement of your furniture, for example, when putting chairs under a table.
