Architecture goes virtual with iStaging

iStaging announced the release of a brand-new feature that allows users to create floor plans right from its VR Maker app.

Fully integrated with iStaging’s LiveTour, the floor plan feature leverages Apple’s ARKit technology to recognize spaces and provide accurate wall measurements. 

By scanning all the walls of a given space, users can easily produce a floor plan displayed in bird view. 

The floor plan can then be exported as an image or added to a LiveTour.

iStaging CEO Johnny Lee says, “The floor-plan feature is an important addition to our toolset.

“Virtual tours and floor plans are two facets of the same experience and our real estate customers expect to be able to generate them all in one go.”

The LiveTour is the number 1 rated virtual tour solution on Capterra and is used by thousands of real estate agents, interior designers and photographers in more than 60 countries. 

This newly added capability empowers iStaging’s customers to create a new type of deliverable which they can, in turn, provide to their clients.

iStaging is a provider of out-of-the-box augmented and virtual reality solutions for the real estate and furniture industries. 

Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, the company also has satellite offices in San Francisco, Shanghai and Paris.

iStaging aims to help people transcend space by crafting immersive visualisation products that empower the world interact with distant places or objects.
