NOTE: This feature is not in the Punch “Essentials” or “Express” software titles.
The Room View option in Punch Software will allow you to peel back the roof of the house, and look straight down into the room in the 3D view. This will help you when you are adding furniture to the plan, or when adding materials to your walls.

We have added a desk and a chair into our office.
3D Objects can be added to either the 2D, or 3D view.
Now we can go to our “Materials” library and find a material that we would like to add on to our walls.
Note: Materials can only be added to the 3D view. Simply drag your material, to the object on the 3D view.
We hope you can see how the “Room View” tool, can assist you in adding the final touches, to your homes final design.
