My son loves it. He has used it every day since I purchased it for him! Very nice detail and broad range of usage.
I purchased the program a few months ago, have just begun to get into the program. It's shown to be a little more complicated then I would like. It's difficult to find out how to set defaults like wall thicknesses and so on.
The program does create elevations but again very difficult to work with. I do love how quick to 3D option works. I have yet to try tech support finding out some of the difficulties that I'm experiencing. I'm sure like anyting, practice will help
This review is for Arcon 3D Home Designer Pro. Part of their home designer series.
I first was looking for an easy design tool that had a lot of good features. For example, an easy way to design homes that was not complicated. All you do is first setup your measurements, then your grid (if you want to use one) and then you start with your walls and then doors and windows then see it all in 3D. For a tutorial please see the webinar under the webinar tab then look for Arcon Evo. The webinar helped me make this purchase from Novedge. (A great company to order from.) What they did for me was a special order from Elecosoft. Anyway back to the review... What I like about two more features is that their is an easy to use window and door editor that lets you create your own custom door or window or you can bring in a door or window from the library and edit to your liking. The last feature I like is the rendering engine. The shadows and 3D effects are very nice and realistic. You will not be disappointed with your purchase. In fact you can download a trial from the Elecosoft website and see for yourself and then comeback to Novedge to order it. I am simply a happy customer with my purchase and wanted to share my thoughts about this software to those that are interested in this software. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
