Intro to Features
Discover all the ways RENDR helps you work smarter. Scale the way you work with intuitive and thoughtful features developed specifically for the contracting industry.
With invite-to-capture, RENDR is the remodeling industry’s first truly remote engagement platform. Invite-to-capture allows your team to skip the in-person field measurement. Users can send an invitation to a homeowner to download the app, scan to measure their space, and send 3D models and a digital floor plan back. The scanning process is easy, intuitive, and fast.
Use RENDR to manage your teams and data more efficiently and centralize project details. Create projects in-app to organize floor plans, 3D models, and reference photos for your entire sales team.
No more need to download and store emailed photos or dig through your phone looking for an image. RENDR photo storage creates a central hub for all of your project images so they’re organized and shareable with your whole team.
RENDR is built to seamlessly integrate into the tech stack you already use, so there’s no downtime spent training your team on new platforms. Generate a digitized floor plan as a PDF or DXF file, and import it into Chief Architect™ using CAD-to-walls to create drawings in minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Export the DXF File by selecting the box with the arrow, select “Export DXF”, choose your preferred options then select “Export DXF” via the blue button at the bottom of the screen then choose the method of export from the iOS device. Most common methods are email or airdrop from your iOS to another source.
Yes, with a paid subscription. Three exportable files are available:
1) PDF Floor Plan – great for printing and using in iOS Markup.
2) DXF Floor Plan – great for importing to design software. Most design software and CAD programs will accept a DXF file.
3) RENDR – This file offers a quick way to share a file with other RENDR subscribers/users.
Projects are customer files. Projects can have multiple scans, photos, notes and soon, videos and customer collaboration. Some users prefer to scan rooms individually and name them accordingly. Others will scan the entire level of a home and save it as one file. Because scanning is so quick and easy some do both to get the most detail! Once you have a completed scan you can create a project and move the scan(s) into that project file on the iOS device. While on the home screen of the app you are able to toggle between the Projects and individual Scans for easy searching.
Our scanning technology does not yet work with vaulted ceilings and may adjust wall elevations to justify the higher wall height. However, this only affects wall elevation layouts — the floor plan, location, and sizes of all other objects, such as doors and windows, are unaffected.
Print the PDF File by selecting the box with the arrow, select “Export PDF”, choose your preferred options then select “Export PDF” via the blue button at the bottom of the screen then choose the print icon on your iOS device. Alternatively, you can email the file and print it from your email.
With a RENDR Business account you will send your client an email with a link to download the app by clicking the (+) sign on the main screen, and select “Invite to Capture”. Fill in the client details and send away! Once the client downloads the app they are ready to scan their space. As they begin to scan their space they will review a few tips and precautions then begin scanning. Once the scan is complete the files are generated immediately and uploaded directly to your scan list.
PRO TIP: Our users typically ask their clients what type of device they have available at their home during the initial lead intake. This way, they know whether or not the homeowner has a device capable of returning a RENDR scan if the contractor decides to send them an invite!
Scanning an unfinished basement works just as well as a finished area. The scans will recognize object placement in the PDF and DXF renderings. Examples are a furnace or staircase.
Not at this time, but you are able to manually edit the floorplan after importing the scan data into a CAD program by using our DXF export feature.
Spaces up to 2,000 sq. ft. can typically be scanned in less than 90 seconds. Spaces under 600 square feet can be done in less than 30 seconds.
If there are right angles the space will be captured accurately. Vaulted ceilings, step downs, or adjoining rooms that have different ceiling heights will calculate an average height of the scanned rooms. For example: if you scan one room at 8′ 0″ and another one at 8′ 6″, it will make all of the walls 8′ 3″. The floor plan, location, and sizes of all other objects, such as doors and windows, are unaffected.
PRO TIP: In these cases where you may have a room or rooms with different ceiling heights it is best to scan them separately to get the best results. You can create separate scans of rooms and add them all into the same project file. If the rooms are all the same height then you can create one continuous scan for the complete floor plan.
