I. Function Introduction

Precise Layout supports precise point-to-point movement of objects. During the design process, it assists designers in accurately positioning or placing objects.


*The Precise Layout function is currently only available in 2D scenes (including 2D floor plans, 2D top views, and 2D elevation views).

II. Supported Versions

Cloud Design 5.0

III. Function Access

To access the "Precise Layout" function: Click on the bottom bar "Precise Layout" → "Turn On/Turn Off".

IV. How to Use Precise Layout

Once the "Precise Layout" function is activated, objects can be moved and aligned using a "point-to-point" method:

1.Activate Precise Layout

Hover over the "Precise Layout" on the bottom bar to expand the control panel. Clicking "Turn On" will activate the Precise Layout.

2.Click to Activate Object

After activating Precise Layout, click on a model within the canvas to activate the target object you wish to move.


*At this time, 9 snap points will be displayed on the object based on its bounding box. These are the midpoint, center point, and endpoints. Hovering over these points with the mouse will provide tooltips indicating the information of the current point.

3.Select the Starting Point for Movement

After activating the object, select the starting point on the object with the mouse.

3.Select the Ending Point for Movement

After determining the starting point, move the mouse to any position and click to confirm, completing the object's placement.

V. How to Control Snap Points

After activating "Precise Layout", you can customize control by turning on and off the snap points in the panel to determine whether the mouse can snap to them.

As shown in the figure: If you uncheck "Center Point", "Midpoint", and "Endpoint" in the Precise Layout panel, the mouse will not be able to snap to the object's "Center Point", "Midpoint", and "Endpoint" within the canvas.
