PLNAR, a new app from SmartPicture Technologies, can generate floor plans using augmented reality and eliminate the need to manually measure and document room dimensions.

In order to generate a comprehensive digital report that includes critical dimensioning calculations, visual, and material details, users must mark the outline of a room and designate any structures, such as windows and doors.

“With PLNAR, we’ve built an AR experience that makes it easy for the individual consumer to virtually measure any room with nothing more than an iPhone, while also giving flooring companies, insurance, interior design and home renovation professionals an interactive tool to increase efficiency and revenue,” says Andy Greff, CEO of SmartPicture Technologies, in a release.

●     Generate measurements of any room or wall, including area and perimeter.

●     Quickly determine flooring and material needs for the next phase of a home improvement project.

●     Create, combine and and manage multiple projects or room plans.
