MapSpacer – Plan Your Space Better Virtually

SketchUp goes beyond any limit to provide the maximum benefits to the designers and artists. Extensions are introduced to venture into the unexplored areas proficiently. MapSpace is such an extension that helps event planners and organizers map an event space properly.

The preloaded features in the extension cover every area required your consideration while planning a grand event in a large space.

The regular scenario presents that planners and event organizers face certain problems related to the space distribution for speakers, product demonstration and foot traffics. A few conventional software applications serve the interest but not as precisely as MapSpacer does. With Atlas3D, planners and event organizers handle the task in a better way adopting the best possible routes to organize things. They can even go on a 3D tour in the space and witness the plan like never before. Modifying spaces according to your needs is not a tough task as you can change everything prior to the settings. The spaces for booths, kiosks, stages and seating can also be mapped out easily with this software application.

Data managers have to perform their roles attentively to make the design effective that follows physical security as well as the cooling configuration. MapSpace is a place that requires the work of both event managers and IT professionals to carve out a better plan for any event.

Modification can be done several times until the plan works as per the expectation. This application brings the design to live for communicating better with clients. They not only visualize the space but also walk through virtually to analyze every corner just like they do in real world.

The application is widely used in the areas like a convention centre, data centre or hotel meeting space. The application of this software is done by Orange Country Convention Centre, a seven million square foot convention centre in Florida. The centre has been known as the world’s largest and most high-tech centre that gives spaces for more 200 events every year. OCCC has digitalized the space through Atlast 3D interactive map platform that helps planners and organizers access to the place remotely to arrange events.

This new area seems profitable for the organizers and for the event planning industry. Since MapSpacer virtually presents the space to you, a better event planning is no longer a tough task.

Bezier Triangle Tool is the newest sketchup extension to generate and edit flatten nonrational and rational Bézier triangle surfaces.

These surfaces can be scaled infinitely to facilitate creating more normal and complicated surfaces.

This extension is suitable to design structures without having a notably rectangular structure, and so rectangular patches are not treated as a natural choice for creating models of these complex geometries. They provide themselves simply to patches on spheres or quadrics.

The Bezier Triangle Tool is available in the Draw menu and in the Right Mouse Context Menu as soon as a Bezier triangle is produced or edited apply this tool is chosen.

By selecting Draw->Bezier Triangle, a default rational Bezier triangle will be drawn around the origin and keep you into the editing tool for the newly drawn surface.

Select a current Bezier triangle drawn/edited with this tool and applying Edit Bezier Triangle in the Right Mouse Button context menu will also set off the editing tool for the chosen triangle.

ith the purpose of altering the weight of a non-end control point, hover the cursor over the control point to alter the weight of it so as to highlight it in green, put the new weight required for it, devoid of shifting the cursor away from the control point, and press enter or return to modify the shape of the triangular surface.

With the editing tool, it is also possible to choose either one of the 10 control points or one of the 18 lines of the control grid which are shifted to control the Bezier triangle as per your requirements.

Inferencing is also possible when the chosen point is shifted together with inference locking with the Shift key. If the Esc key is pressed throughout a move, the surface will reset to the way it was prior to the move initiated.
