Editors' Review

Sweet Home 3D offers users a chance to see a remodeled room or a brand new home before a single nail has been driven. With a fairly simple premise and impressive results, this slightly flawed program is certainly something to get the imagination going.

The program's interface is very easy to use. The left side of the screen contains a file tree for every room in the house, and clicking on each room presents a list of all appropriate furniture you can drag into the adjacent box. The area is a grid with measurements corresponding to room size. Below the file tree is a space for each item in the room and its approximate size. At the bottom of the screen is a small box that provides the 3D view. Designing a room is very simple. By dragging furniture into the grid and positioning it as you envision your redesigned room, a clear picture appears below, providing an impression of space that two-dimensional sketches cannot. In addition, there is an exciting Virtual Visit option that lets you walk through your home and its rooms.

While the results of Sweet Home 3D were impressive, we were slightly disappointed with its control. Placing items in the room will take some patience, as it feels rather clunky. However, with a little practice, we are certain users will be able to use this free program to design something impressive.

"Easy to use and powerful"

June 02, 2012  |  By Maurice_greace

 |  Version: Sweet Home 3D 3.5

Pros

Easy and intuitive for all. I was able to recreate my entire flat with it and my daughter is making his own!. Make a plane is easy and drop and use the models is very intuitive.

Cons

Maybe I will like it had more models, but I have found a lot on resources.blogscopia.com and on the 3dwarehouse site (sketchup). The collada files are working ok with sweethome3d.

"Excellent; needs further conversion help improvement."

May 14, 2012  |  By a6p7

 |  Version: Sweet Home 3D 3.5

Pros

Powerful; yet easy to use and learn

Cons

It could be improved as regards its usability: One can save work in convertible SVG and OBJ file formats but then (as with Google Sketchup and similar modelling programs), one gets lost about the limited but possible conversions to other programs. It would help to know which CAD programs can effectively import those files and have them then saved in file types that designers, architects, engineers use most, such as DWG.
