There isn't a way to convert a digital image into a 3D model in Chief Architect; however, you can use an image or of a floor plan, or a PDF, as a template to trace over.
Backdrops are images that display behind the model in 3D views, and new backdrops can be created using a variety of graphic file formats.
Creating a screenshot is easy to accomplish by following the instructions applicable for your operating system linked here.
Using the Export Picture tool is similar to creating a screen capture of everything in the current view window. Pictures can be saved in various file formats and used in other applications.
Images of plants can be imported into Chief Architect and modified to display in your camera views just as the plant images contained in our library catalogs.
The Screen Capture tool allows you to add backdrops, images, or materials directly to the library or to create picture objects.
Create 2D plan views with rendered 3D characteristics to post in a portfolio, on a website, or in a brochure by overlaying a floor plan on top of a 3D model.
Since mobile devices have different capabilities, it is wise to simplify your design prior to exporting your Chief Architect plans for use in the 3D Viewer.
