How to Generate a 3D Export

Generate & export 3D models of the floor plans you have created in magicplan.

Bring your floor plans to life for clients and teammates by generating a 3D export. Create files on the go in the app, or on your desktop through the cloud. 

3D exports are available in various formats for all 3 subscription tiers, see which formats are available for each subscription here.

Generate a 3D Export in the app:

  1. Click on the project you wish to export. 
  2. You are now on floor plan level. Tap on "Files and sharing" at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Under the Export tab, click on "3D Model".
  4. On iOS: Two files will appear: OBJ and USDZ. Use the USDZ file to showcase your project in AR by tapping on the file in the magicplan app. Use the OBJ file to import a 3D model into 3D-design-software to continue editing.
    On Android: Only the OBJ files will appear. USDZ is not supported by Android.

ℹ️ Note: Subscription tiers Report & Estimate will show OBJ, IFC, and USDZ files

Generate a 3D Export in the cloud: 

  1. Log in to the cloud with your magicplan account.
  2. Click on the project you wish to export. 
  3. Click on the dropdown button labeled "Sketch" in the top left corner and click the "Files" option.
  4. Under the "3D Model" section click the "Export" button on the right. 
  5. You will then see blue file links appear, click on each one to download to your device.
  6. If you have made changes to your project you can return back to this section and click the "Update" button on the right side to update your existing files and re-download. 
  7. Continue editing your export in 3D design software, or showcase your project in Augmented Reality (if running on an iOS device). 

ℹ️ Note: If your plan has multiple floors, multiple file icons will appear as each floor gets exported separately.
