Generating New Plans or Uploading Existing Plans

The first step in using Maket is generating a new plan or uploading an existing one. This feature allows you to:

2. To the right side of the page, you can enter in all your plan dimensions, from the desired units, square footage and room dimensions

3. Click Generate

Now, let’s go over how to upload an existing plan:

1. Click over to the plans tab & click on Existing Plan

2. Upload your plan as a JPEG. We recommend taking a screenshot of the plan if it is in another format!
