Editors' review

Wouldn't it be great to be able to see if your furniture is going to fit before you move it? Or how a color will look on your walls before you paint them? With Roomeon 3D-Planner, you can. If you've ever used 3D panoramic software to shop for apartments, tour historic buildings, or devastate the enemy, you've seen Roomeon 3D-Planner's basic operation. This free 3D interior design application lets you create virtual models of your rooms and furnishings, down to the exact dimensions, that you can arrange, rearrange, and rearrange again, without lifting a finger (not counting mouse clicks). You can create virtual rooms, too -- as many and as different as you like. You must register online to enable all of Roomeon's features, including the ability to save and load your projects, but registration is free, and you can log on as a guest to try the software before you register. You can log in through Facebook, too. Registering also enables the Roomeon Portal feature.

Getting started with Roomeon means setting up a 3D model of the room you wish to decorate and learning to use the program's 3D-Navigation technology. Neither is difficult, thanks in part to Roomeon's wizard-like interface (the video introduction is only available in German). Setup involves three main steps: Footprint, with templates available to help you set your floor plan; Walls & Floors, where you give structure to your space; and Objects, including furnishings. Roomeon's grid plan, icon-based toolbar, and integrated Help sidebar make what would otherwise be a very complicated procedure surprisingly easy, though we recommend starting with the most basic options and building up detail as you go. Roomeon's 3D engine reduces resolution during operations and then restores fine detail, which the developer claims reduces processing power and improves rendering. Decorating your rooms involves browsing catalogs of available colors and furnishings, including some famous brand names.

Once you've gotten the feel for navigating with Roomeon, you can zoom in and out, view from any angle, and quickly apply changes. Whether you use it to model your own space or create your dream room, let Roomeon 3D-Planner move the furniture first.

    "Needs English documentation and help videos."

    October 04, 2012   |   By Slate2k

    Version: Roomeon 3D-Planner 1.3.1.1

    Pros

    Powerful, flexible, user friendly interface. Does for free more than many commercial products that I've seen. There's also a decent library of furniture, appliances and other supporting props - all available for download, right into the program. Unlike so many powerful programs listed as freeware these days, this is not a demo - it's a fully functional software package, and it's truly free.

    Cons

    To take full advantage of the software, there needs to be adequate documentation. There is documentation and quite a few how-to videos posted on their YouTube site; unfortunately, all of these - that I could find, anyway - are in German, and alas, I don't speak German. It was very frustrating to have this powerful program, and not be able to find adequate documentation to use it to it's full capacity. It also would have been nice to be able to choose between metric units and feet/inches, as everything is in metric units only.

    Summary

    The measurements are in the metric system, so if your measurements are in feet/inches, you'll need to convert them. There are plenty of websites and free calculators that can facilitate this, however, it is a nuisance that I would rather not have to do. Also, unless you understand German fairly well, you're going to have to wing it on your own, since the major documentation and YouTube videos are all in German. Still, this software is powerful and intuitive - and the controls and menus are in English - so you can still do a lot with it, it's just going to take a little more effort to figure it out on your own. If you like a challenge and enjoy this type of software, then this one's for you. If you need a little more help, however, you might want to befriend that nice German neighbor down the street or look for another piece of software ;)
