A specified date appears in the upper right-hand corner of the pCon.planner quotation form. If this date is false it may be due to an incorrect system setting.

Why are the input values for wall parameters so large in some cases?

After inputting values for a wall’s Height and Thickness parameters, the values are not taken into account when the wall is created. Instead of the entered values, extremely large numbers appear in the input field and are then used when the wall is drawn.

The reason for this error is usually caused by using the same separators for both decimal points and digit groups. Generally, each separator is different. In Germany, the comma serves as the separator for decimal points, e.g. for the value 123,45. Digit groups are separated from one another using points, e.g. for larges numbers such as 1.234.567.

What does the use of Ambient Light mean for my older plans?

In pCon.planner 7.3 and newer versions, the Ambient Light is used as a standard light source. Plans that were created in pCon.planner 7.2 or an earlier version will still contain the old standard lighting, which consisted of several directional light sources.

If you open an older plan with a current version of pCon.planner, it will still contain the old standard lighting and all additional light sources. The Ambient Light Intensity will automatically be set to 0%. The original lighting therefore remains 1:1.

When double clicking on a DWG file, the file opens with another program, instead of pCon.planner.

The most common cause of this problem is a missing file link. To open DWG files with pCon.planner, follow the instructions below.

The rendering times for different users vary in length on the same system. What options are there to fix this?

The differences in rendering times are often due to programs running in the background. This can vary for each user, as they may be demanding more or less of the operating system at one time.

Differences in rendering times can also be attributed to having the Windows option Run Program in Compatibility Mode enabled.

Does pCon.planner also work in the Mac systems and with Mac OS?

At present we do not offer a version of pCon.planner for Mac OS. Windows virtualization (with Parallels, VMWare, Virtualbox etc.) will, however, provide a possible workaround.
