An application meant to guide you towards creating the house of your dreams, with modern furniture models and improved 3D view of each room
Sweet Home 3D is an application that enables you to create a sketch of your home. This type of program can be useful if you plan to move to someplace new or to make some changes around the house.
The interface of the program is plain and easy to work with. Thanks to the Explorer-based layout, you can easily locate and import objects, according to their type - bathroom, bedroom, doors, windows, kitchen, lights, living room and others (e.g. box, curtain, cylinder, staircase, workbench, hot water radiator).
So, you can add items to the sketch by using the 'drag and drop' function, as well as make adjustments when it comes to the name, location, elevation, angle, size, color, texture and shininess of each piece of furniture.
By accessing the right-click menu, you can lock an object, create walls, rooms and dimensions, add text, modify the compass, import a background image, add levels, as well as zoom in and out, and export the project to the SVG or OBJ format.
Additionally, you can use the undo and redo functions, group and align objects, import a texture library, toggle the 3D viewing mode between aerial view and virtual visit, create images and videos, as well as print the object to a PDF file.
From the 'Preferences' area you can change the interface language and measurement unit, disable 3D navigation arrows, magnetism, rulers and the grid, as well as specify the new thickness and height of the walls. Options can be restored to their default values.
The program requires a moderate-to-high amount of system resources, has a good response time and includes user documentation. Sweet Home 3D did not freeze, crash or pop up errors throughout our testing.
