New measurement tool for Inkscape
When I must work on a 2D layout for architecture, one of tools that I like to use to create floor plans is Inkscape. A 2d vector drawing software tool like Inkscape gives us a lot of freedom to add and change layouts, using simple actions like drag and drop. For those of you that don`t like vector tools like Inkscape for architecture, because there isn`t a precision tool, such as the ones we have in CAD softwares. Well, you will probably want to take a look on the new measurement tool proposed for Inkscape.
The video below shows a concept created by a developer called Felipe Sanches, which adds a really nice measurement tool for Inkscape, enabling any user to work with precision on the software.
This will really catch the attention of architectural visualization artists, and make a lot of people to try Inkscape for 2D architectural drawings.
