Once you login to SpaceDraft you’ll be taken to the Personal page. Depending on how new you are to SpaceDraft you may or may not have any SpaceDrafts on this page, but when SpaceDrafts are made, you will find them here.

To create a new SpaceDraft click the + Create SpaceDraft button or click on the box that says Create A New SpaceDraft

From here you can either click Get Setup or Start From Scratch:

Get Setup – Will walk you through the set up process. (We recommend clicking on this one, as it streamlines the process and makes everything easy to understand.)
Start From Scratch – Is for those who have more actively used SpaceDraft and don’t need any help with setting up.


Getting Started – ‘Get Setup’

When clicking Get Setup you will be guided through the process of setting up your SpaceDraft.

  1. Set Your Frame: Choose a frame to guide your SpaceDraft by selecting Auto, Desktop, Tablet and Mobile depending on what device you want your SpaceDraft viewed on.
  2. Pick Your Theme: Browse through the various themes and pick one that suits your SpaceDraft best. Picking a theme will show you backgrounds and pins that best fit that theme. If you don’t see a category that fits your SpaceDraft, just click none.
  3. Set Your Space: Have a look through our different backgrounds and decide which one works best for your SpaceDraft. You can also upload your own images or use a real world map for your background. If you’re undecided, choose Blank Canvas. You can always edit your background later.


Getting Started – ‘Start from Scratch’

  1. Add Pin: Click here to open the pin library. Drag and drop in pins to populate your world and bring your scene to life. Click on your pins to resize them, add movement to them and much more. You can upload your own images, or use the pins in our pin library.
  2. Add Comment: Introduce a small note on your SpaceDraft that can appear at specific times. You can add text, images, videos and more into this comment.
  3. Group Select Objects: Perform actions on multiple pins at once. You can also fuse pins into a single pin.
  4. Edit Frame: Define the space that will be visible to people when they view an export of this project or choose the device size that you would like your SpaceDraft to be viewed on.
  5. Enable Grid: Enable grid for greater precision when building your SpaceDraft. You can calibrate the grid to a specified scale or snap objects to grid.
  6. Add Text: Add text over the activity layer that stays fixed in place.

  8. File Library: Browse the file library for your SpaceDraft and upload any media you would like to insert into your SpaceDraft.

  10. Timeline Panel: Open the movement tab to track the movement of your pins. You can decide when they need to be hidden, when they need to move and much more. Here you can also change the time format of your SpaceDraft.
