To make environment creation easier for people unfamiliar with 3D tools, ARDI includes a Floorplan Converter.
This can take a simple vector drawing of your walls, such as those created in Inkscape, Illustrator or Autocad, and convert them into 3D environments.
The floorplan converter can operate in one of two different modes...
Standard Floorplan Conversion
The standard floorplan conversion takes the drawing of your walls, along with boxes that represent features (such as doorways, windows and stairs etc.) and creates a three-dimensional model from them, giving them height and thickness.
Negative Space Conversion
This process is the opposite of the standard floorplan. Rather than making a 3D model of your walls, it creates models of your rooms. This type of conversion is ideal for building automation and control, as it quickly isolates all of your individual spaces and turns them into ARDI assets.
