Version 2 Summer 2021: Level Terrain, GIS Previews, and Property Lines

This year marks a special one for us here at Structure Studios because we released Version 3 - our most significant update yet! 

The powerful tools in Version 3 have been so popular that our team is already looking forward to sharing even more of the exciting tools we are developing for you. 

Before we launch the upcoming Version 3 update, we want to share with you this Summer Update of great timesaving features for Version 2 that will help you design beautiful projects even faster.

Level the Ground in Terrain

Give this great new timesaving tool a try: auto level in terrain. Now, when you draw a complete shape and set the height, all terrain inside the shape will remain level.


Preview GIS Images

Until now, GIS Images were available only after you purchased the address. With this update, you can now see a preview of the location before using a credit.

Property Line and North Arrow


Add the property line with the measurements and bearing quickly and easily. 

Plus, you can even see the property line in 3D!

This makes it easy to align landscaping or other objects while maintaining the appropriate setback.

In Page Layout, the North Symbol will automatically match the Orientation set in Stage 1. property-line-3d
