Great for Basic House Design

Limited for more complicated design such as different height ceilings, slanted ceilings, half high walls. Roofs go through walls without a lot of work to correct. Was unable to put a hole in the floor for a cupola, holes in ceilings work well but not when another floor above. I was unable to put two floor heights in the attick. I built walls with different heights by adding stories but since each story had to had a minimum 1/2 inch foundation it left gaps in walls. Colors do not stop at rooms sometimes depending on how built. Stairs don't specify number of steps or rise or run. I could not turn off wall snaping wich often distorted room shape. 3D ability is great and I liked how shading and lighting works. Windows and doors often did not pass through multible stories. Try as I could i was unable to fix the problem. Hopefully their is a way to build multible stories which line up exactly but I did not find it. I think this causes the window and door problem. A big improvement would be to add wall heights, draw lines to designate certain things such as where a sloped ceiling stops and a flat ceiling begins and to eliminate certain automatic dimentions. I think the program is great for most one or two story homes and is certainly priced right for most users. I have only owned the pro version for less than a month so I may still have a lot to learn.

Great program

I have just drawn 2 plans with this software after using a couple of others. Its quick and easy to use and easy to add dimentions were needed. Its great to be able to change sizes of all 3d objects. I am more interested in materials and costs than how pretty it looks so having a material break down from the design would be great. The large selection of 3d obects is awesome but maybe too many. Takes a bit to scroll though. The walk around controls take a little getting use to, but mostly because Im use to other programs. Havent figures out an easy way to do a #d look down on the plan and a wireframe 3d mode and framing mode would be so cool.
This is a top easy to use, powerful design software that I would recommend to anyone to try. Thanks.

Developer Response ,

Hello! Thanks for the feedback. 1) You do not need to scroll down the whole category of objects to find the necessary one - the library has a search field where you can type the name of the object or material and it will appear instantly. 2) There are several ways to control the view: a) by activating the Look Around instrument in 3D view (its in the toolbar); b) using the keyboards (WASD are used for moving, EC control the movement up and down, while QZ control the camera tilt); c) control the camera view using the 3D Walk Control (its side controls allow to tilt the camera and control its height). 3) To enter the wireframe mode press Cmd-Shift-Alt-W combination of keys on a keyboard. Press them again to get back.

Feel free to contact us in case you will have any questions.

Kind Regards,

The BEST - For Pro's and beginners.

This app can help you achieve any design you could possibly imagine, very good for those who want to build their dream house and would like to scale every inch and centimeter before they start building or decorating. This app most certainly helps you to visualize things before you make decisions, it also has access to a huge online community of 3D models, anything you can imagine is there, From Miele fridges to the latest Apple computers, to designer furniture, no name and famous brands alike, all in their exact size with the possibility of resizing if you want. So the possibilities are endless, and this is definitely for beginners and even the computer illiterate but even for the Pro's, if you can use Microsoft Excel or Word, then you can easily use this app too.

And the good news is that this app will be available on all iOS devices (iPad and iPhone) this year 2018, so all your designs will be cloud synced across all your devices. There simply is no competition and this app is fun to use, if you planning to build your dream house, then you can play on this app like its an advance version of the Sims (without the simulations of course)

My thanks to Live Home 3D team, please charge me lots of dollars for the iOS app, as long as you never make it a subscription service.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the kind appreciation. The Live Home team have been working days and nights to make iOS release happen and voila! We've launched the app on 23 rd of October! Don’t forget to make use of the launch discount, which reduces the price for the Pro edition to $19.99 USD (usually it is $39.99).

There's no subscription - you can purchase the app from the App Store and get it to your Purchased History. There is a free app with the ability to enhance it to Standard or Pro functionality with in-app purchases or the Pro app to get all the Pro functionality straightaway. You can download it onto your iPhone and iPad and be able to utilize the ARKit 2 and iOS 12 to have the most reality-close look on the house in real environment with the help of Augmented Reality and even share your design to be able to see it on different devices.

Thank you for using our apps! Stay tuned, as we've got lots of ideas.
