From floor plan digitization to virtual material selection

Included in PORTER Material Selection is PORTER Floor Plans for converting static 2D apartment floor plans into digital 3D models in minutes. The 3D model, which is available in no time thanks to AI, can be immediately exported in various formats for further processing in your CAD programs or post-processed in the planning tool you are used to. Your project can then be seamlessly imported and materials can be selected in PORTER Material Selection (user license required) on this data basis.

How you can benefit from PORTER

PORTER provides tremendous benefits and added value in particular for project and property developers, renovation contractors, real estate investors and manufacturers of interior finishing products.

PORTER Features
  • Experience and understand the project

    Tour real estate virtually even before the start of construction for a quick and complete overview of the project.
  • Reliable project material selection

    Select materials for your real estate project in virtual reality with reliable planning and price transparency thanks to real interior finishing products.
  • Project projection into the real environment via Augmented Reality

    The planned real estate can be projected via tablet onto any surface – for example onto the building site – and walked through while selecting materials in real size. Also, material selection produced in PORTER can then be projected onto the existing building in the correct position.
  • Market real estate at an early stage

    Get potential buyers involved and excited during the planning stage to avoid the risk of vacancy.
  • Project timeliness in your planning process

    PORTER is not an isolated solution. The platform works cloud based and thus ensures that the product selection and planning databases are always up-to-date for all project stakeholders.
  • Useable on the simplest of devices

    PORTER runs on all end devices. Combined with a headset and PC, you can offer impressive tours in virtual reality.

Experience what will be

Even before construction or renovation begins, see, experience and design what will be, and all this absolutely authentic! With real interior finishing products from real brand-name manufacturers. And even if you feel like standing on the table while designing your real estate project – go right ahead, you can … it’s easy and intuitive to use.

What you see is what you get

PORTER is connected to the interior finishing product databases of brand-name manufacturers with their actual collections at defined prices. This gives all project stakeholders maximum planning security and cost control – already during the planning stage.

Because PORTER is cloud based, the planning databases and manufacturer product ranges are always up to date. Algorithms running in the background enable area ratios to be calculated in real time and quantity/parts lists including pricing are generated.

Efficient data processing with AI

Upload your 2D apartment floor plan to the PORTER AI module. Thanks to artificial intelligence, an immediately accessible 3D model of the residential real estate project is created in mere minutes. Alternatively, 3D files can be directly imported and interpreted.

Note: Depending on the complexity of the floor plan, the quality of the 3D model will vary.

Here is an overview of the key supported file formats.
