Details on all functions of the 3D CAD software
Get to know our smart 3D House Planner Pro software even better now. In the following we present all features again in detail and explain which numerous functions are available to you.
Intuitive user interface
Anyone who is familiar with the Windows interface and can use Office programs will find their way around our 3D house planner software particularly quickly. Our interface and the commands are very well structured and the processes for different components are always the same.
You can save your projects in any location, it doesn’t matter how many projects you draw, they have an unlimited number and the program always stays at the same speed.
Automatic layer assignment
As a professional CAD, the 3D house planner has layer management. In addition to creating new layers, there is an automatic assignment when planning the house. This means that the user does not need to worry about whether the wall or the window is drawn on the correct layer.
Unrestricted input of floor plans with millimeter precision
The floor plans can be created completely freely when planning the house with the help of our construction tools. There is no grid limit or size limit. From a room to a residential complex, everything is possible. As usual with a professional CAD, the input and output is accurate to the millimeter.
3D floor management
The user only needs to take care of entering the 3rd dimension (height of the walls, ceilings, floors) once – in our storey management, entry of storey heights is clear and very easy. The best thing is: if the heights of the storey change, the heights of all affected components also change automatically.
Unlimited 3D components (can be changed or created yourself)
A comprehensive component catalog is available. But if that’s not enough, just define your components yourself and save them in your own catalogs. To make everything very easy.
Editing of project data
Project data can be entered in detail, such as client, address, planner and the like.
Import & Export
Import and export images
In our Pro version it is possible to import image files, these can be stored in the planning or simply inserted on the plan. The plan itself or the 3D visualization can also be exported as an image in common image file formats.
Export as X3D or VRML
An export of the house planning in the above-mentioned 3D formats is possible, so the project can be read in and further processed in other programs that use these interfaces.
Automatic floors and ceilings
as soon as the first walls enclose a room, the corresponding floor and ceiling are created. The thicknesses for these components are to be defined in the storey settings. If the height changes, these components are automatically adjusted.
If the walls enclose a room, the room is recognized immediately and the m2 for the room area are available as information. As soon as a wall is moved, the rooms and also the m2 are updated.
Variable windows and doors
Our components windows and doors have a very large component catalog to offer. Each component can be changed and saved again permanently. Thus, the user can create his own components very well.
There is almost nothing that cannot be found on the stairs. All stair shapes can be constructed and the nice thing about it: The stairs are calculated automatically so that the tread widths and the incline heights always have meaningful values. Of course, the values can then still be changed and adapted.
A 3D roof also at the push of a button? This is not a problem in our 3D house planner. The roof intersections are fully automatic and the roof can be changed at any time. Whether hipped roof, saddle roof or complicated roof shapes, everything is possible. And of course the walls intersect under the roof.
2D elements in construction mode
If a 3D floor plan is to be supplemented as a drawing, for example, 2D drawing elements such as lines, polygons and circles are required. These 2D elements are available in the construction.
Our online dimensions are unique – simply click on a component such as a window or door in the construction or in 3D and all the important dimensions appear. Just move the mouse over it and click on it and change who the pen is displayed.
Planning aids such as coordinate trackers, auxiliary lines, grids, etc.
So that the planning of the walls in the floor plan succeeds, there is very good help in the 3D house planner. With the coordinate tracker you can determine the direction of the wall with the mouse and simply enter the length using the keyboard. Auxiliary lines can of course also be set with a spacing.
A wall or a window should be moved later? Walls are shortened or lengthened? Or components and objects are to be copied. Everything can be done with our extensive editing functions.
Different representations in the floor plan
In our Pro version, fillings, hatching and line widths can be hidden, this has an advantage when designing that you can see and edit the planning very precisely and find existing snap points easily.
Texts and dimensions
Dimensioning elements are of course available in the construction view. These can be individually designed and saved from the optics (text height and dimension lines).
Extended dimensioning functions
In addition to the expansion of the dimensioning types (e.g. route dimensioning), it is possible to edit the dimensioning and also to save it as a separate standard.
Of course, texts are available as individual texts and text blocks in the planning.
Catalogs and textures
Extensive texture catalog
Change surfaces inside and outside? Simply drag and drop the desired surface from the texture catalog into the plan. The software automatically recognizes entire rooms or the external geometry of the house.
Comprehensive object catalog
Do you want to furnish your apartment or house? Or maybe the garden or the surrounding area needs to be designed? Use our extensive catalog of objects from kitchens, living rooms or bathrooms to watering cans for the garden – there are a lot of objects available.
3D mode / visualization
Looking at the house inside or outside in 3D is wonderful in our 3D representation. Our quick shadow calculation in 3D mode helps for great visualization.
Once the shadows have been calculated, you can continue working on the project without any problems and the shadows remain on the model. This eliminates annoying calculation times and the model always retains the shadow calculation even when switching to construction mode.
In addition to the lighting settings for sunlight, additional light sources can be used. So a light source in the outdoor area and of course also for the interior design, each object can be assigned a light source.
If a background is inserted as an image, surfaces can be included in the planning with the background brush.
Issues / printing
The planning can be printed out at any time
Floor plans and 3D views can easily be printed out at any time. Of course, the floor plan remains true to the scale. The paper format can also be selected as desired.
Print as PDF
In addition to the general print functions, the planning or the 3D view can be printed out as a PDF directly from the 3D house planner pro.
