Improved Elevation feature

magicplan’s Elevation feature lets you edit walls and objects in horizontal view. With the new update you can now enter the distance between a wall and an object. Positioning objects with high precision is easier than ever.


How Elevation view works:

  • Select the wall of a room.
  • Tap on the “Elevation” button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Tap on “Insert Objects” and select a furniture object like windows.
  • Drag the furniture object in its position.
  • To adjust dimensions of the object, drag the object with two fingers. Or tap on the dimensions and adjust manually or by connecting a laser.

Annotations now also​ available for land surveys

The land survey feature is a great way to map the area around a building. With our latest update, you can now add annotations and 360 panoramas just like you would do in a floor plan.


How to create a land survey

  • Go to floor level and tap on “New room”.
  • Select “New Land Survey”.
  • You can now insert objects like terrain layout, building layout or streets.
  • Once you’ve created the layout, add annotations for more context.
