What happened??? (updated)

UPDATE: Developers of this app are awesome and have awesome response time! I did discover that the reason why it was crashing was because of a super large 3rd party download from Trimble. I was able to remove it and get moving again. I have learned that when I download items from trimble - if they take longer than 30 seconds to download I automatically delete them so that they won’t be an issue. I would ding Trimble... I think they need to give more information and such on their items so you can be more educated about them before you download them... but I am LOVING Live Home 3D Pro!!

I have so very much enjoyed this app and have had the most fun using it to design my house that is currently being built. Everything was going GREAT until this week! It started crashing!! It takes FOREVER to load (if it will load without an error)... and then a few minutes into working on the project it kicks me out of the app completely! I have deleted and reinstalled the app I don’t know how many times. I am on an Ipad Pro with plenty of memory and storage so I don’t know what is going on. It is super frustrating becuase I have spent so much time working on my project... what happened to this app?????? Right now I cannot recommend this app to anyone... 3 days ago I would have recommended it to everyone!

Hello! There could be several reasons why the app may crash: 1) the lack of free space on your device (we recommend to have at least 2 GB for the normal app functioning); the solution - backup and delete the unnecessary content from your device to free enough space for the app; 2) some third party objects (such as the ones downloaded from the Trimble 3D Warehouse), may contain a big amount of triangles or have issues with the texture which leads to excessive consumption of RAM during the download, which, in its turn, crashes the app; the solution - turn off your internet connection, open the project and find the object which was downloading (it has a clock sign or “X” on the 2D plan and has a white box shape with clock or warning message in 3D), delete it; the app should stop crashing after that. If none of the above is the case, please contact us at support@belightsoft.com We will do our best to help you.

Exactly what we needed

My husband and I were looking for an app to design the floor plan of our home, after trying the free version we decided this app was perfect! Areas for improvement; items could named a little better, more furniture variety (kitchen), ability to import free version design to pro when you buy the app, and timber accents would be nice too! I will say that it’s hard to figure how out how to SAVE or make sure it’s auto saving? Would be nice if you could save and edit the file name from inside the project under the settings tab. Other than that great app, highly recommend.

Pro review

There are 2 issue need to be consider; First I don’t why the app closed immediately many times. That one of the weakness or errors and the other one is really limited for the one who work with it means professionals. For instance there are situations need to be resolve but this is just good enough for making predictable models If we talking about you compared this app with something like Revit. Depends on how you advertise it and I expected. This can not solve many things in my job but I really try with it. There are some software errors, like measurements and adjustments issue Which I experienced many times and never make sense. It can not modified shapes if you don’t have model. And not good at roof if it’s complicated. Not like tutorial videos but really complicated roofs either. But I impressed that I compare it with something like professional BIM softwares.
If we go through for what we pay it’s okey to pay for but I at lease expected not frustrated by errors. Maybe my work is heavy load for it but it’s really not just small but professional. I request if any way reduce this errors before disappointed to use. And if there are accessible models which encourage me to stay with it.

Good day! Thank you for the feedback! There could be several reasons why the app may crash. For example, some third party objects (such as the ones downloaded from the Trimble 3D Warehouse), may contain a big amount of triangles or have issues with the texture which leads to excessive consumption of RAM during the download, which, in its turn, crashes the app; the solution - turn off your internet connection, open the project and find the object which was downloading (it has a clock sign or “X” on the 2D plan and has a white box shape with clock or warning message in 3D), delete it; the app should stop crashing after that.
