Earlier this year, Synthetic Turf International (STI) unveiled a new feature to their website, the Facility Designer. This feature allows site visitors to design an indoor training facility and get a basic CAD drawing right away.
The Facility Designer can be used by end users such as gym owners, schools, municipalities or flooring companies. It’s also a great tool for dealers on site visits in the field. And it’s incredibly easy to use!
Measurements are easy to enter into the program for a project, and are customizable. Add-on options include hash marks, full lines, agility ladders and agility dots that are also customizable, and can be dragged and dropped into the design anywhere.
There is also an option for adding custom logos to a design.
Once the design is finished, there is an option to print and save. The Final Round project, which we have featured on the blog recently, was originally designed using this program.
It’s also a great way to start factoring material costs and get a general idea of what the project will look like when installed.
