Sweet Home 3D for Mac lets you arrange and rearrange furniture in a framework house so you can get the optimum layout. You start using Sweet Home 3D for Mac by laying out the dimensions of your room, floor, or house. The more accurately this is done the better, as a few inches can make a huge difference in layout potential. After that, you can grab images of furniture and position them in your layout. You can adjust the sizes of the furniture to match your existing furniture easily. To view the results, you can have a top-down view, or a movable 3D view that lets you move about and view the layout from all angles. Even better, you can create photo-realistic images of the results, giving you an accurate view from any angle. While it is relatively easy to get started with Sweet Home 3D for Mac, there's a surprisingly complex application underneath it with so many tunable features it could take months to learn everything about the software.
There's a ton of capabilities in Sweet Home 3D for Mac, but at the same time you can use it for laying out your dining room in a few minutes. The biggest surprise is that the software is free, and has an active support forum for it. If interior design is something you could use, Sweet Home 3D for Mac is a winner of an app.
Sweet Home 3D helps you to design your interior quickly and easily: draw the rooms of each level of your home upon the image of an existing plan, change the color or the texture of each room, and drag and drop furniture onto the plan from a catalog organized by categories (windows, doors, living room, kitchen), in which you can import 3D models created by yourself or downloaded from various Web sites. All the changes made in the 2D plan are simultaneously reflected in a 3D view, and you can navigate in 3D either from an aerial view point, or from a virtual visitor view point. Finally, you can improve your home plan by adding dimensions and texts to it, print it along with the 3D view, create a photorealistic image of the 3D view with customized lights, create a movie from a virtual path in the 3D view and export the plan to SVG format or the 3D view to OBJ format to import them in other 2D or 3D software. Sweet Home 3D is available in English, Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Vietnamese.
