      "Extremely useful and it is free!"

      September 17, 2012   |   By warthawg

      Version: Sweet Home 3D 3.6

      Pros

      I have used it to "place" our furniture in a home we bought but on which we have not yet closed. The 3D rendering is particularly useful, especially when I make a "photographic" image of a room and show sunlight patterns through windows at any given time of day. Although the furnishing objects are limited, I was able to import some more and to substitute objects that approximated our antique primitive furniture by specifying the color and dimensions. Finding help took a little work, but it is usually there and,once found, easily understood. We have moved a lot, and I have used graph paper and more primitive programs for furniture placement, but this is hands-down the most sophisticated software I have ever used, and I am eager to explore the potential of this program. If you know the dimensions of the rooms you want to arrange, the program makes it easy to draw and to place your furnishings where they best fit. Just remember to start a wall with a click and end it with two clicks.

      Cons

      I wish there were more objects to choose from. Does nobody but us have rocking chairs, for instance? I am color weak (I'm a male) and would love to have a color pallet with more discernable colors. Especially compound colors--shades of brown or green. But these are minor problems.

      Summary

      It is a useful and sophisticated program, and it's FREE. It takes some learning to use, but it is very useful once you get the hang of it. My thanks to the programmers.

      "Some Great Features, Easy to Learn... No wood floors?"

      November 29, 2011   |   By mickpick

      Version: Sweet Home 3D 3.3

      Pros

      I've used this to assist with small renovations. I found it easy to pick up for the most park, I have zero background in CAD so thats a plus for new users.
      I am con
      You can download additional sets of icons for projects you are working on. Not a lot, but it all adds up.

      Cons

      The selection of textures for walls, ceiling and flooring is very poor. You can find four styles of soap holders, but need a wooden floor..

      Summary

      All in all, I picked up a new computer and it was on the top of my list to download and install.

      "Excellent application!!"

      April 06, 2009   |   By depeche

      Version: Sweet Home 3D 1.8

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      This app is very intuitive and easy to use. The live "render" of objects is really nice. I do find the mouse input very sensitive when it comes to live pan-arounds though, but not enough to hinder the enjoyment. You can also import 3ds and OBJs models too. Thanks for creating this, it's just awesome!

      AND IT'S FREE!
