"Buggy and hard to use"

November 18, 2011  |  By revett

 |  Version: 3D Home Design by LiveCAD 3.1

Pros

The 3D renderings are good.

Cons

Very hard to learn. The manual is in pidgin English and difficult to follow. Parts of the program keep popping up in French. The program crashed on me twice. Objects keep randomly disappearing. Joining rooms and walls is not intuitive. After three days full time on this product attempting to design a simple house, I have given up in frustration, and I am by no means a computer ignoroid. It is not worth the money (40 euros) and they give no money back guarantee.

Summary

Generally a crappy, incomplete product. The vendor needs to spend serious time and money bringing it up to a basic standard of usability.

"It works, but not effectively"

October 06, 2011  |  By primedlt

 |  Version: 3D Home Design by LiveCAD 3.1

Pros

It works if you got a great video card and/or memory.

Cons

First, it's slow! It takes approximently 4 minutes to load on my computer. I think it is because it hogs a regulary video card. Maybe if you has a super game card, it might be better. I had better luck with AutoCad.
Second, it has a 5 room limit.

Summary

Unless you have the lastest in game video cards and plan on a 5 room max house, don't bother with this program.

Cons

Hey Cnet/CBS, how about checking this stuff out before you host this garbage? Might be a way to improve your scores too.

"Bad due to poor installation management (unreviewable?)"

March 15, 2010  |  By ThufirHawat

 |  Version: 3D Home Design by LiveCAD 3.1

Pros

Seems great for a one-time "granny-flat" in the back yard. However...

Cons

A 203MB download, then another 27MB for DirectX during installation; and THEN only do you find out your graphics card is "unsuitable." Surely a small app to check the graphics card BEFORE all this effort and expense is within their capabilities!

Summary

One reviewer found a 4-room limit that was never mentioned. Yet another found that tutorials were only available in French. Having re-read the description by the publisher against the background of my own experience, together with those previous reviews, I cannot avoid the impression that there is at least some misrepresentation in the label "Price: Free."
Perhaps the app is all they say it is but given the above, one has to wonder...
