Office Layout is a fast and powerful tool for the design of the office space. It's perfect for facilities management, space planning, office designers and glazed partition manufacturers.
How Office Layout Works
By picking 2 points, or 1 point and a distance, glazed or solid modular partitions can be drawn as fast as you draw a line. Distances are considered between posts centerlines. An easy to use replacement tool is provided to toggle between glazed and solid panels. Single and double doors with selected size and swing can be inserted on partition openings, automatically generated. Each partition module and door has its own ID tag, which is inserted automatically. Complete the design with handy and functional office furniture and identify the room with a two-field ID tag. For a graphical description see attached Office_Layout_tutorial file.
