I love Live Home 3D. I have been using Live Interior 3D, but when I saw I could create curved walls in this updated program, I had to have it. I hae not been disappointed in my purchase. The program is easy to use, and you can create fantastic projects using the Library. Great program with great features.

I just bought this software and whenever I try to start a new project, as soon as I choose the plan (House Scale, one of the preset houses, etc), the window closes and nothing happens...

Nearly every ceiling in my house is sloped, and I can’t make a sloped ceiling in this app. It also is not easy to work with floor plans exported in any format from Magic Plan, as far as I can tell. I wish I could get a refund. Would not buy again, would not recommend.

Nice mixture of accessibility and precision, as needed. Easy to create rooms and walls, and to add windows, doors, and openings. The range of materials is pretty good, and easy to apply. It is easy to create and set camera views. Working in the split screen — half floor plan, and half 3D view — makes changes and additions immediately understandable. Access to the Trimble 3D Warehouse is great: There is a huge number of options for furniture and other elements in your interior; almost all allow customizable dimensions. The only noticeable lack, for me, is the range of light fixtures. Only the light fixtures in the software act as light sources (customizable for intensity and other attributes); the light fixtures in Trimble 3D Warehouse don’t offer the lighting functionality (at least what I’ve found). To achieve relatively realistic lighting and shadows, you need to use the limited range of fixtures in the software.

So good so far, this is one of the most easy app to create and remodeling areas in you home. I recomended this app to anyone who want to move forward with the construction world EC

I purchased this program to make a 2D sketch of my bedroom. It was advertised as intuitive and easier than many programs to learn. I have been unsuccessful with this task even after viewing the videos. You must have a familiarity with architectural terms. I could not find some of the vocabulary, even in Google. The videos are too general. I followed step by step, more than once, and did not get a successful result. The actual program documentation seems thorough so if you are familiar with the program you can find what you need. But the documentation is unhelpful when you are learning and don’t know what to look for. It is like telling someone who is first learning to drive a car to rely on their car owner’s manual.

I'm sure there is more powerful design software out there, but for the cost you get quite a bit of functionality. I started with the free version but quickly became frustrated with the limitations on the roof design. Upgrading to premium for $30 allows you to build roofs one section at a time rather than relying on autoroof for the entire floor. Still missing is the ability to build porches and decks. If it's there it's not easy to find.

I was hoping it would be easier and more user friendly. I don’t want to take the time to learn how to use it. If it’s not intuitive, I’m deleting it. Sorry.

This app works well to create floorplans, you can easily create rooms and add elements. The 3D view works well, although with some bugs - reminded me of my days playing Doom on my 1990s PC.Yet, the visual is rather poor, graphics are rather rudimentary and outdated. But it is upon (trying) to desgin the interior that the app really is very lacking - a lot of office furnitures are available, but HOME furnitures are lacking - this is very surprising, i was unable to organize a simple living room with the few options of furniture they had in their library. Also, almost every single piece of furniture looks awful and kitsch. It is very difficult and laborsome to create a visually appealing interior with such awful, awful furniture samples. But it works well enough to play around with furniture arrangement and space distribution.

This program used to be great (4 stars for sure) but since upgrading to 3.3.4 via the Mac App store, the program no longer opens. I’ve contacted the developer many times with no response. I would love to upgrade to the Pro version, but I won’t do it until this is solved. Too bad—it was a great program for the $.
