Use a DISTO measuring device

Updated by Heather Jones

You can use DISTO with SketchCam to make capturing the dimensions of a room even easier. Rather than manually approximating the room in Sketch and then using DISTO to refine, use SketchCam to create your digital blueprint first:

  1. Open your project in Xactimate mobile and go to Sketch.
  2. On the top right of Sketch, tap. The room list appears.
  3. Tap SketchCam.
  4. Use SketchCam to mark the corners of the room. (Use the corner guides to help you mark obscured or inaccessible corners.)
  5. Tap the check mark to accept your new SketchCam blueprint.
  6. In Sketch, tap the wall you want to adjust.
  7. Tap the laser icon at the base of the screen.
  8. Tap the end of the wall you want to adjust.
