Architect XL

Architect XL



Architect XL has been designed to help users do a precise drawing of a floorplan in a very natural and simple way. The drawing can than be shared via e-mail in native or DXF format for further editing in another iPad or with a full featured CAD application.

Did you ever draw on a piece of paper a floorplan and when tried to figure out if a certain furniture would fit you realized to have forgotten some measures? Architect XL’s CAD engine helps you get all you need by closing floorplan paths and letting you get any measure you need afterwards.

You can draw multiple polygons, lines and text and place them at a perfect relative position using the triangulation tool that lets you place a shape on the drawing just by taking the distance between a reference point in the shape itself and two external reference points (for convenience you can also define a third reference point to double check the positioning).

But you can also use free positioning to arrange different furnitures scenarios and choose the one that best fits your needs!

The software works in two different modes:

- projects browser: is the default start screen from which you can preview your existing projects, create a new project or share a project via e-mail, print it with AirPrint or Open PDF into another app

- edit mode: if you want to add a new shape to the drawing, edit its vertex or move shapes to a different position and give them a name. In edit mode you can also change the project properties (scale, units, etc) and place any quota you need.

A useful status bar gives you updated key informations.

You can always use pinch in/out to zoom the current drawing area.

Features List:

-iOS 5.1 and Retina Display compliant

-professional triangulation for accurate positioning of both points and shapes

-extended shape's editing features (rotation, line width, position, etc)

-import shapes from other Architect XL's projects (so now you can create your own library)

-custom file format import/export (via e-mail) for projects sharing

-DXF import/export (DXF import requires objects to be exported as closed polylines or simple segments) ;

-PDF export via e-mail and Open In...

-project printing (iOS 4.2 and above)

-undo/redo function

-cut, copy, duplicate and paste features for shapes

-shape selection/rearrange menu

-XY snap in draw mode and smart snap to key vertexes in point and shape mode

Feedbacks are welcome to improve the application in the future updates.
