draw.io Floorplan stencils – draw.io

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/20

I needed a way to draw floor plans.

PowerPoint solutions were to cumbersome, but then I remembered draw.io: it has [WayBack] draw.io Floorplan stencils – draw.io

Have you tried the floorplan stencils in draw.io? You can open the library directly by using the libs parameter, www.draw.io/?libs=floorplan. Or, you can enable them in your library section by clicking “more shapes” (bottom right) and ticking “floorplans”, then apply:

I configured draw.io to show measurements in points, then took 100 points per meter as scale.

At first I most of my measurements were wrong because the I thought the “fat” grid lines were every 50 points. They are not:

  • Light grid lines are 10 points
  • Fat grid lines are 40 points
  • Ruler has small marks every 10 points
  • Ruler has large marks every 50 points
  • Ruler has numbers every 100 points

How confusing!
