Most Helpful Reviews
For professionals! - I strongly recommend this application to both hobbyist and professionals. Interior designers and architects doing tenant fit-out or speculative work for high-rise housing can quickly create multi-storey views of housing units by making exterior walls transparent (or non-visible in the Project Tree)...
Non-intuitive - I used 3 different home plan software packages over the years and this one is BY FAR the least intuitive that I have used. Something simple such as placing a sink in a kitchen is non-intuitive. Other programs if you have a room placed as a kitchen, you place a cabinet in the room, fix it to a wall, select a sink and drop it onto the cabinet. Done. This program, I’ve tried numerous methods for placing a sink, I am unable to fix a cabinet to the wall, it simply goes right through the wall - I’ve changed the “glue by” settings, tried everything I can find in the manual (which is very limited in its usefulness) and can’t get this simple task done. Viewing the tutorials makes it appear very easy, but in practice it doesn’t work that way. Not nearly worth the cost of the program and of limited value to me. Not sure about all the reviews saying this software is “intuitive”. Other programs out-of-the-box, without reading instructions I was able to create a simple floor plan, with kitchen cabinets, doors, windows, roofs in less than 30 minutes. This one, still haven’t figured it out. $90 for the pro version - think twice.

Not bed - I wish there are more building and finish materials selection. Beside all this not bed.
Much more than what you pay for! - Simple but powerful!! You can also download and insert 3d items into your project. There are limits, but still worth the money.
