3D Home Architect design suite is designed to create landscape design. Applying materials and objects from the library, and changing their dimensions, you can execute the site plan, and then evaluate how it will look in 2D-form. The finished project is viewed in color, 3D-view, in perspective, from different angles. A large selection of elements and materials makes the program a good helper for designing a garden, a house adjoining territory and individual parts of a site.
3D Architect can make creating a site and building plan an easy task. If you do something wrong when placing objects - put the sofa on a table, plant on plant - the program will warn about an error.
In addition to an impressive choice of vegetation, there are many tools for creating design inside the house - different colors of wallpaper, upholstery.
