You may have heard about the Canvas app to scan rooms and get your plan back in the Chief Architect format.

In this special Designers Show, Greg Barto from Canvas will join us to answer your questions about the app.

But, Most importantly, we'll be discussing how accurate the Chief Plans are that users get from their Canvas scans.
