What's new in pCon.planner 8.4

The fall 🍁 release of pCon.planner has arrived and it brings a series of exciting new functionalities and improvements!

Discover the new article selection. We're now using the contour of the selected objects to highlight the selection. It's cleaner and makes it super easier to find the selection in your project - they are even visible through walls or planning elements in front of them.

We’ve brought support to photometric light sources which provide realistic lighting representation. You can use the 15 new light sources added or import the lighting industry standards IES or EULUMDAT formats - just drag and drop them into your project.

Discover the exciting new arrangement functionality (beta release) which allows you to fill out an area with repeated instances of a selected object. Ideal to automatically place, and determine, the quantity of wall or carpet tiles needed to fill a specific area.

It will also be super quick to align and distribute elements in your project with the new function.

These are some of the many new functionalities and improvements available. You can't miss this exciting webinar!
