The DRAW Tool on RDM's RealAccess platform is the engine that delivers Space Analytics. DRAW gives users the power to create or modify floor plans with speed and accuracy. Users can easily visualize answers to "What if" scenarios without the expense or technical knowledge of AutoCAD.
- Export drawings to DWG files
- Handle BOMA 2010 calculations with the building wide BOMA calculator
- Sync and save scenarios to RealAccess
- Import CADs directly into DRAW
Our newest features in DRAW 3.5 include:
- CAD Layering - You now have the ability to toggle the layers on and off in your CAD file and save their state as a new scenario in RealAccess
- Leader Lines - You can now drag text outside of the space to create more presentable and informational PDF plans.
For CRE buildings, DRAW tool is incredibly valuable. It is saving us time and money. Everyone managing CRE should be on this platform."

The Power of DRAW
DRAW is designed to make your life easier. There is no need for expensive architects and long turnaround times to hinder your simple requests. In this potential situation, you have a floor plan and want to visualize what one large suite would look like divided up into two suites. You can do these space calculations within minutes with DRAW Tool.
DRAW can be accessed from the Interactive Floor Plan. Here we have the second floor of our Sample Building, 123 Main Street. This is a fake building in New York , so we will be using the REBNY standards to calculate the rentable areas. If your building is outside of New York, DRAW can work with BOMA standards (including BOMA 2017) just as easily.
Using any of the line tools (in this case, a demising line), you can separate out a segment of the larger suite into two smaller suites. Simply click at a starting point to an end point.
Your floor plan will automatically recalculates. DRAW's functionality allows you to assign this new suite a number and access this new plan in RealAccess.
Click on the "Assign" tab, enter in your suite details, and your new suite is ready for use. Save this as a scenario, and you'll be able to open this plan in your Scenario list for this floor on RealAccess.
What used to be limited to AutoCAD manipulation by skilled technicians or architects, and may have had a week-long turnaround time, you can now accomplish in minutes on any PC. DRAW is included alongside a standard RealAccess subscription. It does not come with extra licensing fees or anything, unlike AutoCAD, which is expensive and requires specialized knowledge to use.
