Draw a Floor Plan from a Blueprint – RoomSketcher App


With a RoomSketcher Pro Subscription, you can draw your floor plan faster by using a blueprint, image, or sketch as a template to trace over. In this video, you will learn how to: Upload a blueprint, scale it, if needed, rotate & crop it, draw over it, and generate 2D and 3D Floor Plans So, let’s get started! In the RoomSketcher app, click Menu and start a new project from scratch. Now, click Menu and then Blueprint Properties. Click Upload. Select a JPG or PNG image on your computer or tablet, and click Open. It appears in the Blueprint Properties area with the Scale tab selected. Now, make sure to scale your blueprint so that all measurements and furniture get sized correctly. To scale it, just indicate the length of one wall or item, either in millimeters or inches, and the rest of the floor plan will scale automatically. Select the middle of the tape measure. Drag it to an area with a known length and press and drag the end to size the crosshairs of the tape measure to the item on the blueprint. Type the known length here and click Apply. The blueprint is now scaled. At this point, you could click Save and Close. But, let’s check out the two optional tabs first. Click the Rotate tab. If your blueprint is crooked like this, simply press and drag the middle and then the end of this handy rotation tool so it’s along a wall, and your blueprint automatically straightens. OR, click here to rotate the blueprint 90 degrees. Now, click the Crop tab. If there is extra space around your blueprint, drag the blue lines close to the edges of the floor plan. When you are done, click Save and Close. The drawing pane appears. Open Walls mode to draw over the blueprint. I’ll start with Exterior Walls to draw the outside walls. Move the cursor, click to start, drag, and click and drag again at each corner. Ignore any windows or doors for now. You’ll add them later. You can change the wall thickness here. Now, I’ll use Interior Walls to draw the inside walls. While I draw, I can use these handy buttons and hotkeys. Press the B button or the B key on your keyboard, to see just the blueprint. Press the F button or the F key on your keyboard, to see just the floor plan. And Press the F+B button or the A key on your keyboard, to see All. Note that once you are completely done with the blueprint, you can hide both it and the buttons by pressing Menu>Blueprint. Now, I’ll continue drawing, and here are my completed walls. Next, is Windows mode. I’ll press the A key to toggle my blueprint back on. Open the Windows category and then click to select, and click to place a window. Click the Add tab and then follow the same process to add doors and even stairs. Here is my plan with all the windows and doors. In Materials mode, you can add floor and wall finishes. I’ll open Tiles, click to select one, and click to add this tile to my bathroom, and place it on the floor. Here is my plan with all materials. Finally, in Furniture mode, you can add appliances, fixtures, and furniture to complete the project. Here is mine! Now, save your project, and then click Menu>2D Floor Plans. It’s a good idea to Preview first, and then click Generate. Click here to check your order… and here is my 2D Floor Plan. You can Save floor plans to your device or print them. Finally, if you want to generate 3D Floor Plans, click here. With RoomSketcher Pro, it’s easy to draw your floor plan from a blueprint. To learn more about RoomSketcher, go to RoomSketcher.com
