Upload a Floorplan

Your Admin has the ability to upload floorplans into the product during and after onboarding.

Important Note: That if you are updating the floorplan, then make sure you use the same size/scale as the previous floorplan as you want the dots to line up with the seats. 

Floorplan Preparation

The floorplan will be published as a PNG image that will be uploaded into SiQ. The Floorplan Preparation article details what preparation needs to be completed on the source file:

  • .DWG
  • .PDF
  • .PNG

If you are using Blocks to set up furniture blocks then see the Floorplan Preparation article for how to set up the .DWG Source File and Blocks Preparation.

When you have manually uploaded the floorplan image the Map area will be populated, where:

  • Floor Plan Image displays the image.
  • Width and Height fields are populated with the SiQ Paper Size of Width (pixels) 4000 and Height (pixels) 3100.

7. Click the Save button. The floorplan PNG image is saved.

Upload DWG file using the SiQ AutoCAD Plugin

You need to follow the instrcutions in SiQ AutoCAD Plugin Installation & User Guide and this explains how to Publish a New Floorplan OR Open an Existing Floorplan with Blocks.

When you have used the SiQ AutoCAD Plugin to publish the floor map the Map area will be populated where:

  • Floor Plan CAD file displays the DWG filename.
  • Floor Plan Image area displays the floorplan image.
  • Width and Height fields are populated. 

Important Note: You will notice that maybe the width and height fields do not display the SiQ Paper Size. In the screenshot above you will see it displays as Width (pixels) 1884 and Height (pixels) 1145 this is still correct as this is is the scale of the DWG file. If you make modifications to the DWG file then make sure you use the same size/scale as the previous floorplan as you want the dots to line up with the seats. 

Now, you are ready to manage your blocks in the Map Editor, see Manage Furniture Blocks.
