An outstanding home design app that can turn anyone into a designer. Create detailed floor plan layouts, 3D home design visualizations, plan a garden and work with the surrounding landscape—everything is possible with Live Home 3D Pro.

Floor Plans, Building and Terrain:
• Сreate detailed 2D floor plan layouts.
• View real-time dimensions for walls, ceilings and floors when drawing in the 2D Plan view.
• Get unlimited floor levels: you will be able to create multi-story buildings and even skyscrapers.
• Design from scratch or rely on ready-made house and interior design samples (e.g., kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, etc).
• Work with terrain editing tools for landscape design: create elaborate terrain around your house, lay paths and driveways and plan out your garden or backyard.
• Choose from the ready-made roof templates (12 roofs and 16 dormers) or customize the roof by editing its segments to create roofs of any form and complexity.
• Work in 2D Elevation view that displays the side view on walls and roof, a perfect tool for working with openings, niches and wall panels.
• Scan your room or house using the Room Scanner feature based on LiDAR technology to recreate its digital copy (only for devices with LiDAR sensors built-in).
• Use a multi-purpose Building Block tool to create porches, custom columns, beams or even furniture.

Objects and Materials:
• Add and move furniture and other objects (2,400+ items), and apply physically based materials (2,100+ supplied materials).
• Access thousands of free models that can be imported from the Trimble 3D Warehouse.
• Import 3D models from other applications in most popular formats (COLLADA, FBX, OBJ, USDZ, 3DS, etc.)
• Create sophisticated custom materials, and control their texture and light emissive properties using the Material Editor.

Lighting Settings:
• Work with natural lighting by setting up true geolocation, time of day and cloudiness.
• Adjust light fixtures throughout the house to achieve a realistic lighting scene.
• Create custom lamps or achieve the best lighting for your projects with Light Source Editor.

Viewing and Sharing Your Project:

Capable but not intuitive

Update,

After a few weeks of using the software the program is becoming easier to use, and thru trial and error, you can figure out it’s abilities. Tech support has been responsive to all my questions! Sorry I bothered them so much. From what I see it’s a very capable program, just takes patience for first time users.

I had purchased the pro version of this product to develop plans for a future garage/home. There are many features that are not intuitive about the program and/or it is very glitch. For example, the elevation view sometimes shows your project, and other times is just a blank page. When it works I have no idea why it’s working. Adding features such as roofs, nothing happens in the 3D view, then all of a sudden I have multiple roofs added. Again either the software isn’t working correctly, or it is just not an easy/intuitive process. It’s almost easier to do my drafting on paper instead. I’ll keep using it for now but my patience are thinning.

Hello! Thank you for the feedback. In order to see the correct elevation view, you need to select the necessary wall first. This process is shown in the "Elevation View" tutorials, available on our website. Adding roofs is also simple, you just need to switch to the appropriate story and add the roof on the current story or above (these are two different controls). The process of roof creation is also shown in a number of video tutorials that we have.

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.

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.
