-Create 3D interior worlds - easily and intuitively
The pCon.planner is easy and fast to learn because its functions are tailored to the planning of rooms and furnishings and easy comprehensible. You dont need any CAD knowledge.
The pCon.planner special features are its powerful functions particularly optimized to plan interior furnishings. It has never been that easy to create entire living and working environments.

It is just as easy to allocate colors and materials and to simulate lighting situations.
The synchronized multi-window work space allows you to view each step of the planning from up to four freely selectable perspectives and in as many different qualities of the visualization.
The commands for planning are clearly structured in functional groups. It is thus easy for you to intuitively proceed with the next step.
You may execute all steps of the planning in 3D view, too, due to the three-dimensional interaction axes
-Extensive online catalogs with a wide range of realistic object symbols
The pCon.planner allows you to access the web catalogs of numerous manufacturers and dealers in the furnishing industry. You load the objects directly into your planning and thus equip the rooms with real high-quality 3D objects.
The pCon.planner is your gate to the entire world of furnishing ideas.
A link in the program leads you to an online search engine which exclusively for the pCon.planner compiles countless web catalogs of manufacturers and dealers in the furnishing industry. A keyword search function allows you to look for the appropriate furniture and accessories for your living and working environment.
The results are displayed in a hit list. You select the adequate object and load it directly into your planning from the web. You can position it as you like, modify it within the defined limits, and explore it. If you do not yet want to opt for a certain product, the catalog "World Of Furniture" offers you a wide range of free object symbols.
The number and variety of catalogs offered to the users are expected to grow constantly since the pCon.planner concept is a platform for manufacturers and dealerships to present their products to a wide audience. That is why you will be able to select and include a wide range of furnishing accessories from the light switch and plant arrangements through to the designer lamp.
-Breathtaking quality of visualization - in 3D and real-time
The pCon.planner sets new standards in the graphic visualization of your planning. Move freely and in real-time through your 3D planning and convince yourself of the exceptional quality.
The pCon.planner visualizes your furnishing planning in almost realistic quality. Reflections, light and shadow play, surface textures and colors enable you to effectively implement your ideas.
The visualization attaches great importance to the details: even special materials with many reflections, such as shiny metals or glass surfaces, still look realistic from up close.
Furthermore, the pCon.planner works with fast real-time rendering. When moving through the planning, all reflections, light / shadow effects are simultaneously adapted. Enjoy your rooms from all perspectives and be sure to take the right decisions.
-Optimizing processes by simple data handling
The pCon.planner allows you to comfortably exchange data with the current CAD systems. Open CAD data with the pCon.planner and just process them further.
As pCon.planner is free of charge and available to everybody, plannings can be easily exchanged between all persons involved. Furthermore, the pCon.planner file format opens the door to the customary CAD systems. For you this means that you can exchange your planning data between pCon.planner and the CAD software without having to convert them and then you can further process the data. The program thus essentially contributes to the efficient structuring of your planning and communication processes in a professional environment:
As an interior designer or office worker specializing in the furnishing industry you can, for instance, email the CAD drawing of an office floor to your employees or to your client.
The recipient installs pCon.planner and can open and view the drawing with it, make additions, if needed, add comments, and execute all the programs planning functions. Converting the data is not necessary.
As a field representative, you can send a planning concept, which you have developed in cooperation with your customer, to the office service. The office service can open and process the planning with pCon.planner or a CAD system.
Changelog for this release:
The pCon.planner 6.3 contains a raytracer engine to create high-quality renderings of plannings. The results can be used to enrich presentations and address customers on an emotional level. The quality of a rendering depends strongly on the chosen raytracer settings in connection with the characteristics of light sources, objects and materials used in the planning. Therefore the pCon.planner 6.3 provides three pre-defined setting profiles to ease your first steps with the rendering tool and helps to get fast results.
