Floor plans with extensions?


#1

HI.
I wonder… is there a way to let say for example: that i have my presentation on shapespark, and i whant my client to see the floor plans of the house ( not the current “top” view that is available in shapespark ) i mean a plan like this one…

i mean the top view is nice… but some clients prefer to see plpan views like these ones…
And i was thinking… is there anyway to use the “Extencions” label to acomplish this???

It would be neat for something like this if Shapespark supported section planes (IMO).

Shapespark doesn’t have a way to automatically generate such floor plans, but if you create them manually as images, I can see two ways to show them in Shapespark:

  1. Use the HTML extension to show the floor plan image as HTML <img> element. You would need to upload the image to some hosting server. In this approach a click on an icon in the scene will open a popup window with the floor plan, in the same way that a click on a i icon here: https://naniby.shapespark.com/virtualtour/ opens a popup with a video.

  2. Or use the views functionality:

  • Apply the floor plan texture on a horizontal surface that is normally not visible (either not reachable by the camera or hidden).
  • Add a Top view that shows the floor plan texture centered and hides all other objects (Objects tab allows to configure objects visibility per each view.
  • To save lightmap space, set lightmap resolution to 0 for the floor plan surface in the Objects tab.

@Antonio_Perez, if you decide to go this way I think you could use LayOut to generate floor plan images from a SketchUp model pretty fast: https://blog.sketchup.com/sketchupdate/creating-plan-your-sketchup-model-layout

Many many thanks to all of you, i’ll try to show the images as a HTML element, but if i may ad a suggestios it would be nice if there was a extension we can use to upload like a “RENDER GALLERY” , it would be super nice if i could send a client the walkthrough of a proyect and the client could see inside the same one, renders of the house… without having to use HTML extension just to show a gallery of images…
