From sketch to reality: the versatility of render modes in pCon.planner

Visual representation is crucial in the world of interior design. For this reason, it is essential to master the various render modes in pCon.planner. These offer a wide range of options for visualizing designs and supporting the planning process. Starting with the floor plan and ending with a realistic rendering, the render modes enable a step-by-step approach to the final result.

Wireframe: Perfect for floor plan tracing, this mode provides a detailed view of all lines and objects.

Hidden Line: Fills surfaces and facilitates object selection, ideal for sketches and designs in early planning stages.

Colored: Emphasizes surfaces with a gradient and is well suited for technical concepts and precise representations.

Textured: Shows textures for a more accurate material representation, but without taking the lighting of the scene into account.

Shaded: Integrates a simplified lighting calculation to illuminate the scene, but without shadows.

Realistic: Provides the highest quality rendering of materials, lighting and shadows for photorealistic results.

Depending on the planning stage and the visual requirements to the design, switching between the different render modes is necessary.  Each mode serves a specific purpose and offers a specific functionality that meets the requirements of the respective planning phase.
