Ways to Interact

DigiDigz opens in Plans Mode by default.

 

You will see a sample plan on the stage, and several clickable options at the bottom of the screen. Select an option to change the display to a basic room shape or presaged room. Log in to see plans previously saved in your account and any whole-property replicas created for you. 

 

You can click the Plan Mode button at any time to return to this first step and select a different plan option. This feature is not available in our demo version.

As soon as you select any object on the screen, including walls, windows, floors or furnishing products, the application automatically enters Furnish Mode.

Once an object has ben selected and different fabric and/or finish options are available for that object, the Materials mode button will appear at the left of the screen. Click the Materials Mode button to view and select  options from the bottom of the screen.

Click the Materials button a second time to return to Furnish Mode.

Ways to View

Entering the dollhouse view is as simple as toggling the view button at the top right of the screen through three possible viewing options. Once the dollhouse view is selected, the user can freely rotate and pan the entire floor layout to view the plan from any angle. 

To simulate walking inside the digital space, simply toggle the view icon until the “walk inside” (footprints) icon appears. The user will be placed in a free-roam state and can travel anywhere along the floor inside the 3D layout. Movement controls include a set of footprints that appear when the curser is placed over a floor, indicating that a double click will take you to the end of the pathway. Please note that the ability (1) zoom in and out using the scroll wheel and (2) pan the scene is disabled in “Walk Inside” View.

 

The floor plan view is a top-down view of the entire digital space much like a traditional floor plan, except you can rotate, pan and zoom into the image for a closer look. Standard movement controls apply.

Log in to Save and Share

Logging into the app allows you to save, retrieve and better manage your designs. It’s as simple as entering an email address and password. Don’t worry, your email address is safe with us. 

Catalogue Options

Catalogue cons appear at the right of the page when you select a plan, wall, window, door or floor on the screen. Products and finishes that can be applied or attached to the object currently selected appear at the bottom of the screen.

Icons at the right of the page open full and filtered catalogues in grid format at the bottom of the screen.Click a floor or wall within the digital structure. A blue outline will indicate what object has been selected. All categories of product that can be placed or applied to your selection will appear at the bottom of the screen. You can filter the view by clicking a category or by using the search bar immediately above the catalogue.

For quick access, items in the catalogues can be added to a personal favorites folder by clicking the ribbon on the product thumbnail at the bottom of the screen. The number of items in the folder is indicated below the icon at the right of the screen. Clicking the red icon at the right of the screen will filter the ctatlogue to show only objects selected as favorites. 

Room designs can also be saved to a personal folder at any point in the design process by clicking the green folder to the right. Clicking the icon again will show saved room designs in the grid.

Buttons to the top right of the catalogue grid at the bottom of the screen will expand, minimize and close the catalogue.

Decorate & Visualize

It is recommended that you decorate and renovate the plan in either Dollhouse or Floor Plan View, then ‘Walk Inside’ to visualize the space. Zoom and Pan features have been disabled in Walk Inside mode to better simulate an actual walkthrough.

Selecting objects is a simple and tool for targeting items that users wish to manipulate. To select any wall, floor or product simply right click the object. A blue outline indicates what object is  currently selected. 

Double click any object to zoom in and place it at the centre of your screen. Click outside the plan or hit escape to deselect the object. 

Selecting a floor accomplishes one of two objectives. 

In Environment Mode a selection of objects that can be placed on the floor will appear at the bottom of the screen, such as furnishings and resizable shapes. Once an object is selected it will be placed at the middle of the floor, from where it can be moved or manipulated.

A second objective might be to change the floor covering. Switching to Materials Mode will display floor covering options. Click an option to apply it to the floor currently selected.  

Selecting a wall accomplishes one of two objectives. 

In Environment Mode a selection of objects that can be attached to a wall will appear at the bottom of the screen, such as windows, doors, light fixtures and artwork. Once an object is selected it will be placed at the middle of the wall, from where it can be moved or manipulated.

The second objective might be to change the wall covering. Switching to Materials Mode will display wall covering options, such as paint, wallpaper, wood, stone and plaster. Click an option to apply it to the wall currently selected.  

To move a product within the floor layout, simply left-click-HOLD (2 SECONDS) and drag the the product to its desired location.

To rotate product, left-click-hold and scroll and the product will rotate itself respectively. Scroll upwards to rotate the object clockwise, and downwards for counter-clockwise rotation.

Certain floor and wall products have added customizability. These products include flooring, wallpaper, windows, doors, couches, and baseboards. Items with this additional functionality are referred to as to having swappable material and can be recognized when the following icon appears on the left side of the screen when the object is selected:

Once clicked, a new menu will appear containing material options specific to that item. Users can quickly swap between materials to test their layout with different styles.

Users can quickly delete any unwanted object in their design by selecting the item and clicking the delete button at the left of the screen.

Users can quickly duplicate objects in their floorplan by selecting the item and then clicking the duplicate button to the left of the screen. The item will replicate itself at the exact position of the original object.

When you select an object and the animate button appears at the top of the screen, it means the object has added functionality. For example, it might show the lighting effect of turning a light fixture on or off, or how a chair might recline, or open/close a door. In most cases the same effect can be achieved by double clicking the object.

Users can make simple adjustments to the dimensions of their furniture objects easily using their scroll wheel. Length adjustments can be made by selecting the desired object and holding SHIFT while scrolling upwards or downwards to increase and decrease the object size. Width adjustments can be done similarly by holding the CTRL button rather than SHIFT.

 

Controls: 

Length – Shift + Scroll 

Width – CTRL + Scroll

Product Information

Clicking the  information icon at the top of the screen will generate a pop up that shows detailed product information, including videos introducing product vendors, links to their websites and directions to any brick and mortar stores.

Share

Share your designs with clients, friends and family by clicking the Share button at the top of the screen.

Furniture Configuration

Products with variable components are easy to assemble in the context of an actual living space using Digidigz. It’s recommended that furniture manipulation be done in the ‘Walk Inside’ view. 

Simply click the divide in the section you wish to add a piece. Once selected, an options menu will appear at the bottom of your screen. There, you can select the piece you wish to add. Once selected, the piece will be inserted into the position indicated.  

An existing piece can be selected directly. First, click the product and then click the component you wish to manipulate. Users can swap materials, change the style, duplicate and delete the piece.

Measurement Tools

Two measurement tools are available in the Digidigz app. The first appears automatically at the bottom centre of the screen when you select any object. Shown is the actual measurement of the objects and the numbers change dynamically as you change the size or configuration of the object.

The second measurement tool appears when you move an object within the plan. Arrow indicate the distance to the two closest walls and assist in furniture placement.

Render Quality

The render quality of the entire scene can be adjusted by the user in order to optimize the performance of the software. If the software is running slow, consider lowering the render quality to increase the speed. 

Don’t forget to select to highest setting before capturing the image in a screen shot or sharing with friends and family.  

Light/Dark Mode

Users can click to toggle between light and dark screen modes depending on their preference.

Environmental Lighting

You can change the overall lighting of the plan by changing the time of day. This is useful for visualizing the effects of lighting fixtures in a dim or darkened room.
