The Redline feature in qbiq is useful for submitting minor changes or requests to a completed project. These are changes that do not require a whole new layout planning.
If you need to make significant changes to the completed plan, they cannot count as a Redline. In this case, we suggest using the Duplicate feature and submitting the needed modifications as a new project.
qbiq reviews Redline modification requests within 24 hours.
There are two Redline categories: 2D Redline and 3D Redline:
This category involves requests and modifications specifically for the 2D floor plan.
Examples of 2D Redline use-cases:
Removing walls or moving doors.
Swapping between rooms with the floor plan’s equivalent-sized facility (switching between two offices and a conference room).
Adding or rearranging furniture within a facility.
Adjusting the collaboration area's measurements, such as a pantry, expanding or reducing its size.
First, select the floor plan you want to modify. You will be able to do so by clicking on one of the floor plan alternatives:
Once you select the Alternative you would like to modify, a blue frame will mark your choice, and the matched 2D floor will appear on the right-hand side with a black toolbar at the top featuring:
Reset - The Reset option lets you completely remove all changes or markings made on the 2D floor plan. It's essential to understand that Reset is not an Undo action, and selecting it will erase all modifications without the possibility of reverting to previous states.
T (Text Icon) - This tool allows you to write a message on the 2D floor plan. Click the T button and select the wanted color. Place your cursor on the plan and start typing. Use Enter key to create new lines. After composing your message, tap the black toolbar or select a different tool.
Actions after typing:
Stand on the text you typed, and hold down the left-click button on the mouse. This will enable you to drag the text and place it elsewhere.
To rotate the text sideways, stand with your mouse cursor on the little square at the top of the text box, hold down the left-click button, and turn it as much as you need.
Stand on one of the text box’s corners to make the text smaller or bigger. Then hold down the left-click button on the mouse and change its size.
Mark - Click on Mark for a thick coloring tool. This will open a choice of ten colors. Upon selecting the desired color, your mouse cursor will display a + sign. Place it on the spot you want to mark, then hold down the left-click button and drag to fill color the desired area that requires change.
Pen - The Pen tool provides a thinner coloring option with ten colors and three line style alternatives. After selecting a color and thickness, your cursor will show a + sign. Place it on the 2D floor plan, hold down the left-click button, and drag it to mark the desired area for modification.
Line - Use the Line tool for drawing straight lines. Select a color and line style, place your cursor on the 2D plan, and drag to create a straight line. To stop drawing, release the left-click button.
Actions after drawing the line:
Standing on the drawn line will enable you to drag and place it elsewhere.
To rotate the line sideways, stand with your mouse cursor on the little square, hold down the left-click button, and turn the line as much as you need.
Stand on a rectangle at one of the line’s ends to make the line longer or shorter. Then hold down the left-click button on the mouse and change the line’s length.
Rect - The Rect tool allows you to draw circles, rectangles, or X shapes. Choose a color and shape style, then draw the desired shape on the 2D floor plan.
Actions after drawing:
Standing on the drawn shape will enable you to drag it and place it elsewhere.
To Turn the shape sideways, stand with your mouse cursor on the little square at the top of the shape, hold down the left-click button, and turn the shape as much as you need.
Stand on one of the shape’s corners to make the shape smaller or bigger. Then hold down the left-click button on the mouse and change the shape’s size.
Download - This feature lets you download a copy of the 2D floor plan alternatives with the Redline changes you have requested. We recommend keeping a copy.
Use this feature to submit requests and modifications for the project’s cover and the 3D Tour.
Examples of 3D Redline use-cases:
Client logo change
Changing the 3D tour’s design elements that were selected in fourth step, such as changing partitions from drywall to system.
Add logo - If your client's logo is missing or requires replacement, you can drag and drop the image file or click on the pane to add the new logo. Once the reprocessing is completed, the new logo will appear on the project's cover and the 3D Tour.
Text Box - this feature allows you to request specific changes to the 3D Tour. For example, to convert the flooring from wood to concrete or transform office walls from drywall to a glass system. Use the text box to communicate the required modifications.
