"Unusable"

November 05, 2006  |  By gburnett70

 |  Version: Floorplan 3D 7.0

Pros

Looks nice

Cons

Completely unable to use. I am an IT director and have used many programs, and this one is completely unusable. I couldn't even make a simple bathroom plan. When drawing walls, you are given no feedback on the length of the wall. The only way to determine the length of the wall is to draw an dimension arrow, which you also don't know the length of and IS NOT RESIZABLE.

"Get FPlan v10 much improved over v7"

January 17, 2006  |  By zimdld

 |  Version: Floorplan 3D 7.0

Pros

I'd say 90% of the negitive reviews on this site are inaccurate. I've been using FloorPlan since v3 and it is extremely powerful.

The latest, v10, has many improvements in its user interface, symbols and rendering capabiities.

It is very quick and easy to create plans in 2D which automatically are generated in 3D. Using the FloorPlan / TurboCAD 'bridge', you can continue with advanced CAD work in TurboCAD to create working drawings and customized Architectural Models.

Nothing out there has the one two punch that FloorPlan and TurboCAD has.

see examples of my use at cadcourse.net , check Architectural Drawing services page to see how the program produces.

The Users Forum is an excellent place to ask others questions and get help. That's how I learned the program.

Cons

The biggest problem is not with the program but the users. You must utilize the Location Settings to set up your floors and most people don't understand that. The tutorials in version 10 are hard to navigate through.

Roofs are a sticky point , but that is true with many programs. Learning to use new locations and invisible walls can provide a variety of customized roofs.

You don't have to pay to register. It is done via 1 800 # or internet registration.

They do charge for training but most companies must these days.

"Waste of money"

January 12, 2006  |  By Trixi.com

 |  Version: Floorplan 3D 7.0

Pros

A lot of very good features. Easy to use. Even for beginners with no skills.

Cons

I tried the 15-day version and ordered it. The nightmare began. 50 Dollars wasted. The activation code does not work. The company never answer emails WITHOUT paying 5 Dollars for the support (each question). They do not even read and answer the support forum. My suggestion: Download the Trial version. Do your work in less then 15 days and delete it. Or search for a serious software company. Forget about Floorplan. Waste of money.

"PoorPlan should?ve been its name"

May 09, 2005  |  By pehuen

 |  Version: Floorplan 3D 7.0

Pros

Nice real-time area calculator (but very annoying sometimes). Massive built-in object library.

Cons

Not intuitive, little flexibility, sometimes the dxf exporter creates unrecognizable files. The measure system for built-in library objects cannot be changed... i need meters for everything! Ah! version 9 shows the same drawbacks, so don?t bother to download it. The photorealistic renderer ain?t very photorealistic (it has no bump textures support). Integration with other 3D design tools is, at least, difficult. A disappointment. But, if they listen to the user?s complaints, i think it could turn from a time-waste download to a very respectable architectural software. Is up to you, Imsi...

"Stay away!!!!"

March 20, 2005  |  By nathanbush

 |  Version: Floorplan 3D 7.0

Cons

You would have to pay me to ever use this program again. Ufortunatelt I tried to stick with this program. After 40+ hours of use I concluded that I had just wasted 40 hours. PLEASE, FOR YOUR OWN SAKE DO NOT BUY THIS SOFTWARE.

 |  Version: Floorplan 3D 7.0

Summary

The 3D view and "walk through" are good, but the 2D view does not generate architectural ty drawings.

"Couldn't design a kitchen floor plan"

May 17, 2004

 |  Version: Floorplan 3D 7.0

Summary

I wanted to design a kitchen floor plan and needed a 2D drawing only with inside dimensions. I couldn't do this. Service and support via email was $5. I was frustrated with this software. There isn't any flexibility. I couldn't get a layout with the dimensions I needed. I wanted to complain, but that would have cost me $5. I would not recommend downloading this for evaluation.

"Download version is impossible to use"

September 20, 2003  |  By schwaber

 |  Version: Floorplan 3D 7.0

Summary

First off, there is zero, zilch, that is intuitive about this program (and the pdf file that contains the user manual apparently doesn't come with the trial version (a very stupid decision on the company's part). It's capabilities are awesome, but there is a VERY steep learning curve and NO manual. The interactive help screens are as useful as mammary glands on a boar hog. Also, another stupid bit of programming -- this program is totally unstable in a WinMe environment and yet there seems to be no "Autosave" (or timed save) feature--I lost about two hours worth of work when it crashed, learning the hard way that it doesn't save automatically nor (unlike wordperfect, for example) does it re-open on reboot with a "unsaved document 1 file exists, open or discard" option. Basically, this is programmers playing with themselves and impressing themselves, completely forgetting that people in the real world have to use the program.
