Uploading a floorplan and scaling it to size.

Hi…my name is Julie and I created several tutorials to help subscribers to  navigate through the Event Planner.  This tutorial walks you through the “scale” command.  This is my favorite command since it allows you to bring in your own layout or floor plan and scale it to size so you can use it in the Event Planner.  I’ve used it to scale a google satellite picture of a farm I worked on.  I needed a rough size of the land and didn’t have time to request a survey, so I saved the picture on my screen and scaled it into the Event Planner using the house on the property as a reference point for my “scaling” dimension.  I scaled it up and then was able to develop a rough survey of the land.

I also used this command when I moved into a new apartment.  I took the floor plan from their website and scaled it up and added furniture by using the “shapes” tool to create the accurate size of my furniture.

I love this software!  Here’s a link to my tutorial.  Until next time…good luck designing your day!

Lighting in your booth

[tweet username=”exhibitcore” layout=”none” text=”ExhibitCore Floor Planner”][fblike layout=”button_count” show_faces=”true” action=”like”] Lighting can elevate or destroy the look and mood of your trade show booth. Good lighting should always accent and enhance the booths attributes and minimize its flaws. It should influence the traffic flow and keep the attention where it belongs your marketing message.

Designers equipped with state of the art 3d software have unlimited choices in lighting and effects, it’s the life blood of any great rendering. And in most case it is used to create drama, excitement and enhances desire. The problem is that, it’s rarely translated to the end product. Final booths rarely look like the renderings in terms of the way the booth is lit. Then there’s the fact that lights put into the rendering are invisible and the source of that light does not appear in the renderings.

There are many reasons lighting fails on the show floor, but let’s look at my three top culprits.

1. Ambient light that bounces around the exhibit hall, from other booth, affects the light in your own booth.

2. Most designer’s knowledge of how to implement those lights and call out the proper intensity when appropriate is very limited. Those times call for a lighting expert to provide some well needed guidance.

3. 3rd Common reason is budget. Lighting is an easy item to squeeze out of a tight budget. It usually inters into the equation after the physical booth is constructed.
