Leica DISTO™ Plan App – How to use Sketch Plan


Hi. My name is Tobias Heller. I’m the product manager for the DISTO Plan app at Leica Geosystems. In this video I will explain how to use the Sketch Plan function in the new Leica DISTO™ Plan App. Select the “Sketch Plan” function to create a floorplan or any other situation map. Tap the line or area button to sketch your floorplan. You can precisely draw by dragging or tapping on the screen. Now you can add DISTO measurements to each line. This can be done in 3 different ways: – Select the line and take a DISTO measurement – Measure first and then drag and drop the distance to the line – Select the line and tap onto the measurement Your sketch gets automatically scaled according to your measurements. This is where the sketch turns into a plan. It is even possible to add a room height. Just select a line and add the room height using your DISTO. You can add openings such as doors and windows, position them on the wall and modify their dimensions. Now you can view your sketch in 3D. Go back to the Sketch function to further modify your sketch or add other details. Finally, export your Plan to a detailed PDF report, a JPG picture or even to 2D or 3D CAD files. This allows you to quickly share your work. Watch our next How-to video about Organiser.

    Hi, ihr solltet erstmal zeigen wie man den disto s910 verbindet. Über bt geht es schon mal nicht.
    Über WLAN funktioniert es, aber intuitiv geht anders.
    Ich würde gerne mal einen von euch mit zum Aufmaß nehmen.
    Die Krönung ist allerdings der in App Kauf. Ohne eine Demo gibt es sicher echt viel Frust.

    Enfin une version qui exporte en DWG et en DXF. Cette possibilité était attendue.

    Unfortunatly, this application is not compatible with our Leica Disto A6. An update is waited for use with our fully operational Leica Disto A6.

    The PDF export looks terrible, the measurements placed on the plan overlap each other and dont allow you to read them or move them around. The company logo also gets squashed and gives no indication of how big or small the logo needs to be.

    Woow i need this. Does any Leica with bluetooth support does the job?. The measure we take in the device automatically goes to the Sketch plan app once we click the line or we need to do some other step?

    can you keep adding continuous rooms without messing up the ones you already did?, or you need to make another file?.

    All the walls in this video are 90 degrees, what happens if the wall is on an angle, can you draw then, will it still work?

    Is there any way to measure and draw curved walls? The plan app only appears to let me sketch straight lines.

    My app doesn't have the option to add openings. The two red squares on his app shows the top square is for defining openings. Mine says Line & Area. Please someone help me!!

    If the D2 look like thishttps://lasers.leica-geosystems.com/disto/d2than he has Bluetooth and the app will work. If it looks different it is the older D2 model and has no Bluetooth and so does not work with the app.
