How It Works

PlanStudio is an easy-to-use app that provides users with a simple and easy way to mark-up a building or structure and create spatially accurate floor plans and evacuation diagrams.


About PlanStudio

With this app, users can draft, edit, view and add to spatially accurate computer aided designs (CAD) drawings directly from a tablet. While onsite, users can also increase their productivity and revenue by connecting their work to cloud storage and directly creating evacuation diagrams and signs.

Traditionally, drafting software is complex and difficult to use. Often, a manual mark-up needs to be transferred onto a sign template by a third party. With PlanStudio, users can handle this task quickly and effectively while walking through the building – no extra input is necessary.

Every commercial building needs evacuation signs. Prior to this software, draftsmen could create a maximum of 15 evacuation signs per day. With PlanStudio, evacuation signs can be created accurately and efficiently.

Frequently asked Questions

How do I save my work?

In PlanStudio there is no save function, all of the jobs are saved automatically to the Cloud so you never have to worry about losing your work.

Where are the photos taken in plan studio stored?

Photos are stored in PlanStudio via the Cloud, if you need to keep a copy for your own records we recommend taking the photo on your device and uploading it from your library.

Why do I have to Geotag my floorplan when it's already drawn to scale?

Adding Geotags helps anchor the buildings floorplan to its real world coordinates.  This helps us to understand the real word dimensions of a floorplan as well as providing us with important spatial information.

There are other Icons I want to include on my jobs, Can I Add my own?

Yes, currently we already have a large library of common items, the item you may way could already exist in our library, if not please contact us and we can have our designers add approved icons.

Yes, you can change background graphics and floorplans using the ‘Change Graphic’ tool found in ‘Spatial Settings’ under settings tab (Gear Wheel Icon).
