iPad Pro hybrid design workflow

Blue Print

We are remodeling our house and I have found the iPad Pro a great tool to translate a vision in my head to others who need to be involved in the design / purchase or execution of the work. Today we needed to sort out the cabinets for the “mudroom” adjacent to our kitchen. It will be the main entry point into our house, so it’s essential it well designed.

I like this hybrid design workflow where I put blue painters tape on the wall and take a picture with my iPhone equipped with a Moment wide angle or fish eye lens in order to capture the entire scene. Then add measurements and sketch in the envisioned elements using my iPad pro.

Here is the example for the washer and dryer and cabinet layout.


Nice bit of low tech “AR” there.

Maybe you can do a demo at the next Apple event. :wink:
