I often get questions about who can use Ecdesign and the answer is simple, basically everyone. Ecdesign was designed to be fast and very user friendly, yet still very powerful. Below you will find a quick introduction on the Ecdesign workflow.
Here is a view of the 2D interface, where most of the planning takes place. In Ecdesign you can import an existing floor plan and use as a template, or start from scratch. Furnish the layout with real equipment from leading manufacturers in your industry. Drag out the objects (which are to scale) into the position of your choice.
Analyze the result in real-time 3D
At any time you can click a 3D button and enter a live scene based on your work in 2D. When in 3D you can add more objects, make quick changes such switching colors and materials on objects and the room structures. You can save images (up to 4k resolution) from any angle in 3D and even produce a beautiful walkthrough video which can be quickly shared. Check out the video above to see how it all works.
More cool features
Ecdesign main objective is to help users elevate their business using 3D. We include many ways to help present floor plans in the best and easiest way possible. For example you can also let Ecdesign instantly create professional PDF presentations, night time photos, 360 degree images/ video and soon even VR presentations using Oculus Rift.
