We’ve been hard at work making automated space planning a joyful experience.
This month, we’re excited to share a ton of new features and updates, including:
- Programming Blocks
- Drawing and navigation improvements
- A new website and Hypar Live
✨ New Features ✨
Introducing Spaces! Drag and drop blocks are linked to your program for a better space planning experience. Blocks can be blank or from our library of typical workplace content. Start with a new floor plan or drag them onto existing spaces.
Spaces are intelligent - they’ll let you know if you’ve hit your program requirements. You’ll see a ✅ when you’ve placed the proper number of programming blocks and a ⚠️ when you’ve placed too many. When you change a block size, you can see real time metrics for your area and space counts.
💪 Improvements 💪
Drawing is now more intuitive than ever. We’ve updated the look and feel of our draw controls and cursors to enable copy & paste, provide improved snapping, and allow smart rotation via the tab key.
We also have a new navigation menu to help you quickly find what you’re looking for.
And, if you have any questions, the new contextual help button highlights shortcuts and resources to learn more.
💕 Community 💕
To tell our unique story, we’ve launched a new website!
We also brought back Hypar Live - our once-a-month live coding webinar and Q&A.
Get to know the Hypar development team, ask questions, and geek out with us!
