A Portland-based startup that uses 3D technology to help people envision how new products may fit in a particular room won $240,000 the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network’s Angel Oregon Showcase on Thursday afternoon.

SpaceView is a 3-year-old company that lets salespeople and interior designers place virtual objects in a photo of a room. After confirming the dimensions and exact spacing of a given room, the app allows users to pick from a product catalog and place 3D products on the ground or along the walls. The idea is to streamline the visual approval process.

“Our long-term vision is to create a platform for displaying 3D content across all hardware devices,” SpaceView founder Milos Jovanovic said in a statement.

SpaceView beat out two other finalists: BuddyUp, a social network that helps people find someone to study with, and MotioSens, a company that helps friends and family monitor seniors living alone.

Last year, OEN awarded $256,000 to Portland-based Nouvola, a startup that helps companies deploy their cloud applications. OEN has invested $3 million in Oregon startups since 2005.
