Wall Color and Transparency

V 2015-01-30 15:16


I am following the instructions in the Floorplanner manual to try and set wall color and transparency, but I can’t seem to actually click on a wall when in 3D to get to the menu that would let me set the color/transparency.

Instructions: 4.5, page 23.

“After you have drawn your layout in 2D you can play with the wall appearance. Just click on a wall for the menu and pick a color. You can copy the RGB code with CTRL+C from the textbox to paint another wall in the same color. A reset button allows you to switch back to the neutral state.”

I have tried Chrome and Firefox in case it was a browser thing.

Is this a “pro” feature only or am I missing something? It didn’t say so in the FAQ.

This option has been removed with the new WebGL 3D viewer. We encourage our users to use the Roomstyler instead if more detail regarding interior design is required. So this part of the manual is outdated.

That’s unfortunate, but understandable. I don’t actually want to paint the walls, I wanted to make them transparent or partially transparent to make the furniture layout easier to see in the 3D view.

Agreed, V. 3d view pretty useless without this feature.

Well the best I can do is to make a suggestion to add this feature again. I can’t promise anything though because it’s not up to me to decide.

I, too, think it is regretful that transparency feature has been removed. I found it very useful, almost mandatory, to have with the 3D view. Not having it practically undermines the usage of the 3D view.

Ditto. I can’t see how my room actually works.

transparency and coloring walls crucial to the value

Why that feature was pulled is unfortunate – it was a great feature and made 3d view worth using – now not being able to see anything with opaque walls – useless. Love the product though – amazing online tool..

My feelings exactly. I thought is was a problem that I was having due to my computer or browsers. I’ve been trying for days to get it back. Please put the feature back. 3D is useless now.
