arbor- and circular arc stairs. All stairs can be selected either as solid- or wood construction. The surfaces are freely designable and at a push on a button the optimum safety after DIN 18065 can be calculated. A lower and a top level displacement can be calculated for every stair. Furthermore, for every straight single run stair can be the inclined accession and egression be selected via angle input. With the help of this special „stair types“, ramps can be included into the planning, for example to design apartments for handicapped people. To generate any polygonal stairs and to select different handrail types use the polygonal coiled stair. The many setting possibilities allow the adaptation to different styles. Any 3D-objects can be used as poles. The filling of the handrail can be done with vertical alternatively horizontal bars or with a glass area.

A special function of the VA ApartmentDesigner Professional is the photo realistic simulation of the light conditions with the help of Ray-Tracing. Light, shadow, transparency and reflection will be calculated realistically. The VA ApartmentDesigner contains of course a generation of high quality pictures for your presentation.

or objects can be chosen as well, if they should show a shadow or not. This is sometimes important when generating pictures to use shadows. This function is an addition to the already existing function “lamp generates shadow”.

A listing of all rooms as RTF-file can be created with Microsoft Word for Windows, which additionally if you like includes a listing of the furnishing per room. The complexity of the data can be chosen by the user.
Calculation of floor areas and volumes
The rooms can be assigned for the occupancy according to DIN.
The calculation of the areas and volumes can be done with the help of the function “room info” as a word document. All articles of DIN 277 will be taken in consideration for the calculation of the ground areas and volumes ( for example room heights lower or higher than 1,50 meters).
Virtual walls
With the help of virtual walls you can create rooms, which sides are not completely surrounded by walls, that means, you can create logical rooms which will be taken into consideration for the area calculation, or continues walls can be separated for separate texturing.
Also you are able to create floors with different levels with the help of virtual walls.
