INTRODUCING VR MODE
Imagine being fully immersed in a space before a single 2×4 arrives on site. With Virtual Reality and Envisioneer technology, that is a possibility. Design a home and be inside it instantly, experiencing a sense of scale like never before. It really is a technology that needs to be experienced, but we’ve collected a few resources to shed some light.
Cadsoft ProArchitect 13 offers Pivot Doors as an available door style types. When specifying a pivot door you have all of the customisation options available for other doors plus you can specify the distance away from the edge of the frame where the pivot origin is fastened. A great feature to accurately designate your customised designs in ProArchitect 13.
Custom Door Leafs
There are thousands of great door leaf styles available on the market and ProArchitect 13 opens the door for you to use any style you can imagine for both man doors and cabinet doors. By importing a door leaf block you can create any custom style of leaf you require for a project and save it to use in future projects as well. Each part of the door leaf can be mapped to components available with ProArchitect 13 doors to retain the custom features of the door leaf. This is a great feature to enhance customised designs in ProArchitect 13.
In an environmentally conscious world we need to ensure that the U factor for doors and windows is an influence in home design. In ProArchitect 13, you can record the U factor of a door or window in the automatic schedules. This ensures that all of the relevant information is well documented for the final working drawings easily in ProArchitect 13.
The room dimension tool in ProArchitect 13 displays the dimensions of a room by your specified preferred layout and dimension style, giving you the flexibility you need when documenting a presentation plan. ProArchitect 13 provides the flexibility you need for your drawings.
After inserting a surface, ceiling, floor or deck in ProArchitect 13 you can continue to reshape the structure by adding and removing node points, like a hinge point, to the outline. This allows you to pull the shape into new directions for advanced modeling capabilities. A great way to customise your designs in ProArchitect 13.
Gable Edge Details
ProArchitect 13 has the flexibility of taking a roof and breaking it into individual surface planes so any custom roof can be accomplished. When you convert a roof to surfaces it can retain the original gable end return specifications and it can use those for the basis of any further modifications that you want to make in the roof edge editor. This is a great way to quickly customise your design in ProArchitect 13.
Creating a home design incorporates many pieces but you don’t necessarily want every element in your model showing at once for clarity. In ProArchitect 13, the View Filter allows elements visibility to be turned on and off to add clarity to different views. Now you can save your choices in a template so you can quickly restore the view you wanted. This is an efficient way to view framing, electrical or furniture layout views in a ProArchitect 13 model without a lot of extra setup work.
ProArchitect 13’s member and advanced member commands are perfect tools for inserting individual beams and other framing members to a design. When you insert the member you can designate that it is associated with either the roof, ceiling, floor or deck to ensure that it can be viewed with the other appropriate framing components. This will add clarity to your ProArchitect 13 design work.
Once you have completed your home design in ProArchitect 13, you can then prepare it for working drawings by applying marks to the various items. Marks can be applied to doors, windows, openings, members, cabinets and any other element type. The marks can help to document the required work and ensure your ProArchitect 13 working drawings are detailed.
When creating a home design project in ProArchitect 13 you may change the size of furniture and cabinetry as the design progresses. These elements may have custom fabric or finishes applied to them. ProArchitect 13 has automatic texture remapping to ensure that the texture applied to the object adjusts correctly as you stretch and shrink an object. This is a great time saver in your ProArchitect 13 design work.
ProArchitect 13 incorporates a spacer cabinet as a choice when inserting a cabinet so it can accurately reflect what you will need to order. The filler piece can be labeled with the correct sku and ordering information. This is a great design tool in ProArchitect 13.
ProArchitect 13 has flexibility when designing the countertop for a cabinet. It can be automatically inserted with individual cabinets or it can be inserted separately as a seamless piece. By picking points to designate the back edge of the countertop you effortlessly insert it. You can customise the edges and backsplash for a detailed design and even curve out the individual sides. A great way to customise your designs in ProArchitect 13.
ProArchitect 13 offers flexibility when displaying cabinets in plan views. If you prefer to have the edges of the cabinets displayed or turned off, you can make that choice for your drawings. ProArchitect 13 flexibility is great for your documentation work.
When inserting text onto a hatched or rendered view in ProArchitect 13’s drawing sheets, you can now specify a coloured background. This makes the text stand out and not blend in with the background. ProArchitect 13’s advanced text tools makes working drawings more professional.
ProArchitect 13 imports a variety of file formats to ensure that you can integrate with all of the latest technology. When you bring in a block to the ProArchitect 13 worksheet environment it will name the block and properties in the side panel when you select it. This great tool makes working drawings efficient.
ProArchitect 13 uses Skybox 3D images for backgrounds giving a very realistic representation of the site. Viewing from any vantage point this scene represents accurately and isn’t a static display of a single image. This is a great feature to enhance customised designs in ProArchitect 13.
New Realistic Mode with Real Time Shadows
When presenting a plan to a client you want it to be as realistic as possible so you can engage them in the proposal.

This is a great feature to enhance your presentation designs in ProArchitect 13.
Each scene in a ProArchitect 13 model can have their own settings. This allows you to customise the appearance of each view by setting the time of day, the type of background used and the sky and sun settings. ProArchitect 13 provides fantastic tools to give a winning first impression.

To easily turn off an individual light in a scene you simply right click on the light and turn the light on or off. This is a great way to enhance your presentations using ProArchitect 13.
