Launchpad features the tools and technologies that we are working on at Alternative Technology and makes them available to you before they are fully mature.
Note: Some of the tools and technologies featured in Launchpad may be integrated into Galaincha in a future update, but they are not currently a part of Galaincha.
Launchpad contains the following tools:
- Shaggy Rendering
- Virtual Strikeoff
- Smart room that changes colors to match the rug
- Mystic room that allows you to add/remove furniture
- Staircase View
- Perspective View
- Presentation Template
Shaggy Rendering changes the design using shaggy texture visualization. (Launchpad -> Shaggy Rendering)
You can change the style of the rendering by clicking on CREATE VARIATION button. You can also save your rendered image as JPEG or PNG image formats.
Strikeoff allows you to share Strikeoff images for different TV sizes. Your customers can view the strike-off on their TV, and adjust design colors to match the color poms. This allows your customers to get a real feel of the rug and obviates the need for shipping strike-offs.
To share the image, a code is generated which can be easily shared with others. To generate the code, internet connection is required.
To confirm, click on Upload Strikeoff which would upload it to our servers and will be available for 48 hours. A six-digit code would be generated along with a link to view the strikeoff. Send this link to the person with whom you want to share it. Send the link by email or save the Strike-off image as PDF.
To learn more about Strikeoff, read this article.
