Automatic stairs construction
The VA ApartmentDesigner Professional has an
automatic stairs construction incl.
handrails for L-and U shaped pedestals
as well as for straight, coiled,
half-coiled stairs and for
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

daytime determines the exact position of
sun or moon, which can be shown in the
background when wished by the user. In
reference to the time of the year and
day a determination of the daylight
colour will be shown. A north arrow can
be positioned on the construction plan.
This north arrow determines the
direction of sun and moon.
Photo realistic presentation with
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.
The user has the possibility to
determine, if the Apartment shows a shadow
or not (for example a building shadow
for outside videos with patio shadow). For
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”.
Labelling, dimensioning and output
The dimensioning of floor plans with
single- or chain measures is another
feature of the VA ApartmentDesigner
Professional. An effective and scale
output for every floor, including frame
and writing field can be done with every
to windows connected printer or plotter.
Floor plans, views and pictures can be
included into Microsoft Word for Windows
for presentations of all kind.
Foreground / Background - Bitmap
A Bitmap as a foreground or background
can be shown at any place in the design
mode (for example the VA Virtual
Architecture logo, company logo, etc.).
This bitmap is also shown on the
generated pictures and videos.
There is the possibility to insert a
bitmap for the background presentation
(horizon, view angle).
Import of DWG, HPGL- und 2D-DXF-Files DWG,
HPGL- and 2D-DXF files can be used and
shown as foils for the floor plan input.
Also our VA Software versions include as
a standard the export of HPGL-and
2D-DXF-files and ProCAD-foils as 3D mode
for further use in other CAD-programs.

information can be created as a text
document including room identification,
information text and automatically
calculated data, like floor area,

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
