Get Started - Finding Your Way Around

The Basics 

To start off we find the simplest way to use iSketchPlan is to trace a hand drawn or existing floorplan. Further down the page are some videos on how to import and trace a plan.

  • Pan Controls (right mouse click and drag your mouse across the screen)
  • Drawing Walls (click the add wall button)
  • Doors & Windows (click drag n drop left hand symbols onto the canvas)
  • Layer Controls (layering your canvas objects select object and click the back or font layer button)

Import Plan .jpg or .png File Example

You can simply import an old or poor quality jpg or png scanned floorplan file into your project. Just drag n drop your file into the upload box then drag n drop onto the canvas to trace over. Once you have the walls, doors and windows in place, the template can be deleted leaving a perfect copy. You can then add room names fittings/fixtures and also colour code each room. To finish off add furniture symbols, just left click hold and drag the symbol from the left library panel.
