The benefits to you

  • Create plans and layouts quickly and simply thanks to intuitive prompting. The integrated help function offers additional guidance.
  • LabCreator generates rooms to scale; the walls are full-size and can be fitted with windows and doors to help you avoid planning errors.
  • Switch between 2D layout and 3D view. Move the observation point around the room to get a realistic impression of the design progress.
  • Extensive model library with partially animated learning systems, equipment, infrastructure and model people. This means that, for example, robot stations can be animated, giving a more lifelike impression of the laboratory.
  • Adaptable to new equipment and fully customisable. Drag and drop to import VRML files into the design and create your own 3D models.
  • Worldwide platform for exchanging models. The integrated LabCreator server and online library provide you with immediate access to models designed by other LabCreator users.
  • Use textures to give your models a realistic look.
  • Use the flight recorder to create automatic tours which show your laboratory from a number of different viewpoints. Export the finished "flight" as a video to complement a presentation of your ideas.
  • Export the laboratory design as a VRML, PDF or one of many picture formats.
  • Generate a complete proposal for equipping your laboratory at the click of a mouse.
  • The finished laboratory is saved in XML-Format. These files are very small and can easily be sent by email to other users.
  • Detailed information on all the Festo products you need for your laboratory.

LabCreator users from all over the world are coming together to share their finished models.

To upload your own models to the LabCreator server, you need a user account. Send us an e-mail with a short description of your models and receive your free LabCreator user account. To do so, please use this form.
