Great for visualizing furnishing and renovating your house

Nice mixture of accessibility and precision, as needed. Easy to create rooms and walls, and to add windows, doors, and openings. The range of materials is pretty good, and easy to apply. It is easy to create and set camera views. Working in the split screen — half floor plan, and half 3D view — makes changes and additions immediately understandable. Access to the Trimble 3D Warehouse is great: There is a huge number of options for furniture and other elements in your interior; almost all allow customizable dimensions. The only noticeable lack, for me, is the range of light fixtures. Only the light fixtures in the software act as light sources (customizable for intensity and other attributes); the light fixtures in Trimble 3D Warehouse don’t offer the lighting functionality (at least what I’ve found). To achieve relatively realistic lighting and shadows, you need to use the limited range of fixtures in the software.

Good for basic floorpans and...

I have benn using Live Home 3D for a while and I think it is very good for what it is - at least with the basic version that I have. I am not a professional architect, but I can see where it could be useful if I were.

The big thing - for me - is that it needs a little work from the user ergonomic perspective. Just a few too many clicks to do simple ops.

But, I would definitely recommend this app for the beginner… and beyond!

Great for smallish tasks

Amateurs without some experience in drafting and computer work may have some difficulty. The documentation is thorough, so don't let this scare you away. It is a powerful tool, and in order to get it to do the things you want it to, you will need to learn how to use it. If you do that then the reward will be great.

I'm finishing my basement, and this app lets me figure out the floor plan and do the decor too, so hopefully most of my mistakes are either virtual or small enough to be corrected.

Once I figured out how to import 3D models and create new materials using downloaded images for things ilke fabric and wallpaper, it made everything a lot easier to visualize.
