FILE REQUIREMENTS

  • For the best visual experience you will need to simplify your plans, hide any layers that aren’t required e.g notes, measurements, section markers or roof lines to ensure your plans are easy to walk through.
  • Scale needs to be set at 1:100 to ensure your plan is projected in actual scale.
  • Please view this Plan Example to see how your plan should look.

There are a two ways you can preview your plans in your Plan Lab session…

 

OPTION 1

1:100 PDF File

Prior to your session you will be required to email through a 1:100 scaled PDF file of your plan and Elevations. See below for file requirements. This will mean your plans will be ready to be previewed upon arrival.

  •  Any facades or elevations you would like show cased on the wall projection   upon arrival
  •  Your logo so we can have this displayed upon your arrival
  •  Your 1:100 scaled plans
