1. Sketching a rough floor plan with the Sketch tool How to sketch rough plans with varied brush sizes and brush colours, on the Snaptrude canvas using an iPad and Apple pencil Amritha Krishnan

You can design on Snaptrude by directly sketching your floor plans on the canvas. This is a particularly convenient method if you use a tablet.

Click on the sketch tool. Click on the canvas and drag to sketch.

You can choose brush sizes on the right tab. You can also set the colour of the brush here.

Using a grid as reference for sketching

We've introduced a grid in all plan views, to help you sketch more intuitively as well.

Open the Project Properties tab in the right panel. You'll see an textbox "Grid". Turn the toggle ON/OFF to display or hide the grid.

You can set the grid size by typing into the textbox and pressing Enter (Return key on iPad). Default grid size is 100mm.
