It had to happen eventually. The endless stream of TV makeover, style and
property shows have finally convinced you that it's time to revamp your home.
But how, exactly? That's where FloorPlan 3D comes in. Whether you want to
redesign your kitchen, try a new garden layout or even build a house from
scratch, this powerful drawing application has all the planning and
visualisation tools you need.
The process starts by using walls to construct your house. Choose a wall
size, click and drag on the work area, and draw walls to match the size and
shape you need. If you get a dimension wrong, just click the relevant wall, then
drag it back and forth until your room size is accurate. FloorPlan comes with a
library of over 60 different door types and sizes, and more than 100 windows, so
you're sure to find something that suits your needs.
Finally, switch to 3D View, and FloorPlan will generate an attractive 3D
model of your building. Now you'll get to see exactly what your designs look
like, and get a feel for how they'll work in real life. Resize and reposition
anything that doesn't fit, until you're happy, and you're finished. Print the
models to share with others, or export the design in DXF format if you'd like to
share it with an architect.
