For a Stand Alone Floor Plan we use CubiCasa and it works great. To be honest, when I first heard about it and researched it I thought, “There is no way it’s THAT easy to create an accurate Floor Plan.”.
I was VERY wrong! We just did an old Bed & Breakfast for a client and it was a Floor Plan NIGHTMARE. I was literally dreading it until I learned about CubiCasa. It took longer to go through and turn on the lights, open the closets etc than anything else. Even though this dwelling was a maze of rooms, common area, and private living quarters we simply walked through it with the phone “recording”. When done and back to the office I uploaded the DATA (took maybe 5 minutes) and while I was sleeping the Floor Plan was finished. The final product was spot ON and my client and his clients were all thrilled with the final result. It took us no more than 20 minutes total on site, 5 minutes back in the office, and another 5 minutes downloading the Floor Plan and uploading it to my cloud. If I had drawn this by hand it would have been a full DAY of work and I would have spent a lot longer on site measuring and taking notes/pics. It’s pretty amazing how easy it is but my clients think I’m spending HOURS creating these for them LOL
I only use CubiCasa for Stand Alone Floor Plans though. The Floor Plans from iGUIDE are even easier since we’re already scanning and they are an integral part of our program and marketing campaign.
