A user-friendly and powerful program that helps you visualize a house renovation in a 3D workspace and customize the rooms with various preset objects
Ashampoo Home Designer is a professional virtual home designer built specifically for helping you create and furnish rooms in a 3D working environment using predefined shapes.
It comes in handy in case you want to visualize a 3D model and enhance its appearance by adding windows and doors, and furnishing it with objects from a built-in catalog.
If you are looking for advanced planning capabilities (e.g. creating individual floor plans or complete buildings), you can import your project in other CAD software products, such as Ashampoo Home Designer Pro.
Although it comes bundled with many dedicated parameters, the layout is clean and intuitive, so you can easily configure the dedicated parameters.
The program features several viewing modes which help you set the 3D visualization to a perspective view from the left or right, activate the Raytracing mode for calculating the lights and shadows, switch to an interior viewing mode (where the user is standing in the room), or turn off external lighting to create a night view effect.
What’s more, you can undo or redo you actions, make the walls visible, invisible, or transparent, zoom in or out, and select between predefined floor plans, such as rectangle, L-shaped, and U-shaped.
The built-in catalog, which includes a wide range or predefined objects, gives you the possibility to insert components into the workspace using “drag and drop” operations. You can add 2D objects (people, plants, animals), exterior elements (gardens, houses, plants), interior components (e.g. baths, decorations, kitchens, cupboards, seats, racks, tables, shelves), as well as basic forms (e.g. triangles, cubes, cylinders), and signboards.
Plus, you can embed constructional elements (doors, windows), textures (e.g. metal, parquet, wood), and materials (e.g. concrete, oak, ash), set up the dimension parameters for the planning area, and rotate, scale, or move objects.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning enable you to show or hide the dimensions created in the current view, input a single or chained dimension, view information about all objects present in the 3D view, measure distances between objects, export the project to CYG file format, and save images to BMP file format.
All in all, Ashampoo Home Designer proves to be a reliable application that provides a powerful pack of tools for helping you plan and renovate your home. The intuitive interface makes it an ideal utility for rookies and professionals alike.
