To get started with your Renoworks Pro Visualizer, watch our ‘Master : Masking’ video for a quick overview.

To Get started even quicker! Book a ‘Quickstart Session’ with our customer success ambassador. Quickstart Sessions are one-on-one live and interactive walkthroughs where we work with you to get you started on your first project. You can book a session here at: www.renoworkspro.com/quickstart

To Upload your first photo:

  1. Exterior:
    1. Start by using a good quality photo of the house. A good quality photo is one where the house is in full view and taken in the daytime with plenty of light.
    2. Upload the image.
    3. Choose ’Exterior’.
    4. Set the scale. The scale helps the software understand how close or away you were from the house when you took the photo. To set the scale, indicate the height of any given object of the house – for example, a door, window or the height of the house itself. Do this by clicking on the top part of the object you are measuring (Point A), drawing a vertical line down and clicking on the bottom (Point B) to complete the measurement. The default scale is set for a door at 6’ 8” however you have the option to adjust  the scale to whatever object you’ve selected.
  2. Interior:
    1. Start by using a good quality photo of the room. A good quality photo is one where the room is in full view, taken with good lighting and there is limited obstruction.
    2. Upload the image.
    3. Choose ’Interior’.
    4. Set the scale. The scale helps the software understand how close or away you were from the house when you took the photo. To set the scale, indicate the height of any given object of the room – for example, a door, window or the height of the room itself. Do this by clicking on the top part of the object you are measuring (Point A), drawing a vertical line down and clicking on the bottom (Point B) to complete the measurement. The default scale is set for a door at 6’ 8” however you have the option to adjust the scale to whatever object you’ve selected.

Masking is the process of tracing or defining different surfaces of the house that you will apply your selected product and designs. You can do so under the ‘Draw’ tab. To learn more about Masking, watch this video. Alternatively, you can also book a one – on – one Quickstart Session with your Customer Success Ambassador here

. If you want to know more about this, call our support line at +1 877 980 3880, email us at support@renoworks.com, or speak to someone from the  Renoworks Pro Customer Success team on LiveChat.

 

Your time is a valuable thing. Renoworks offers ‘Design Services’ to help prepare your images, so you can focus on delivering exceptional quality and service to homeowners. To get started, go to www.renoworkspro.com/designrequest

The Trim library is currently under the ‘Paint’ library in your Renoworks Pro Visualizer. You can read more about overlap of libraries here. Adding trim should be done at the right stage of the Masking process as the software works in layers (link).

The right time to work on Trim is after you have masked the siding and before you mask the windows (Just like you would on a real job!) Using the paint, trim or wall tool follow these steps:

  1. Draw a square or rectangle beyond the window to the thickness you would like your trim to be.
  2. Cut out the window
  3. Go to the ‘Visualize’ tab and you can apply different paint colours to represent the trim.

The window will always apply as the top most layer and all you will see is the colour around the window looking like the trim.

Tag: Trim

The process of uploading an image and designing it is called Masking in your Renoworks Pro Visualizer. The Masking process takes place under the “Draw” tab. Before applying products to your clients home, you must mask the image to define various layers of the home. 

Before you get started, keep in mind that the software works in layers – what you mask first will appear as the bottom most layer. After that, each mask will go on top of the previous layer.

This rule applies to everything except doors and windows. They will appear on top of all the layers (except foreground) automatically. We recommend that you plan the order in which you will do the Masking before you get started. Eventually this will become second nature!

It can look something like this:

  • Siding
  • Masonry
  • Roof
  • Trim
  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Foreground

A few things that will be good to know when you start:

  • To mask an area you have to first select the category it fits under
  • To start masking you will have to draw around the perimeter of an area clicking every time you want to change direction and ending where you started to complete a layer
  • Every point you clicked on to change direction is movable, so don’t worry if your lines aren’t straight
Tag: Layers

Shadows are a default setting and in some cases that need to be turned off. Once such case is when you are applying light siding over a structure with an existing dark wall or siding. In this case you will go under the ‘Advanced’ tab of that product and turn the shadow off. You can also set the shadow to any of these given settings depending on dark or light you want the shadow effect – “off, dark, medium average, soft, light, and auto”

You can also watch this short video to show you exactly what the tool enables:
