Labels are short descriptions you can associate with rooms in your 3D Space. You can use labels to do the following:

  1. Highlight important (or visually compelling) regions of your Space.
  2. Show guests where amenities are located.
  3. Provide square footage measurements on a per-room basis. 
  4. Mark where rooms will be built in the future (for use with construction projects).
  5. Mark specific and intricate parts of your Schematic Floor Plans.

    • You can drag the label from one room to another if necessary.
  2. Click the pencil icon appended to your label - this is in the center of the screen.

  3. Click the trash icon appended to your label.
    • This will delete your label. 

 

III. Make Labels Visible 

Once you've created labels and placed them on your Floorplan, you'll want to make them visible so users and guests can actually see them when viewing the Space. Follow the steps below.

  1. Open the Space you want to add visible labels to. 
  2. Click the Settings icon at the bottom-right corner of the window. Screen_Shot_2020-04-22_at_7.16.40_AM.png
  3. In the Settings window, click "Advanced". 
  4. Switch the "Labels" toggle to "On" by sliding the switch to the right.Screen_Shot_2020-01-07_at_11.56.00_AM.png

Labels will only appear in 3D Showcase in the Floorplan View - if you're looking to "label" individual parts of rooms (like a dishwasher, tabletop, or window), we recommend using Mattertags to do this.
