Useful for Real Estate Marketing

Cedreo has been amazing customer service wise. Whether or not is was a support issue, adding additional artwork, or just general account questions they are always responsive and timely. They really make sure you are apart of the team and that your feedback is heard. Their instructional videos are very helpful when it comes to learning the programming as well.

Pros

This software takes a lot of the guess work out of the actual rendering and creation of the basics. The prebuilt textures, furnishings, and landscaping are a huge time saver. You can add in floor plans for easy scaling and drawing from the architectural plans. The renders come out extremely detailed and the camera is easy to navigate to supply multiple viewpoints.

Cons

Some things are very European in look and terminology, but I know they are actively working to update that. I think functionality can be a bit clunky at times but overall it is user friendly. Our biggest complaint from builders and as users is that the roofs are hard to navigate at times. We wish they were easier to customize and not as glitchy, but customer service has always helped when we could not figure it out.

Reasons for Choosing Cedreo

Lumion - Too expensive and only ran on PC Homestyler - Not advanced enough

Reasons for Switching to Cedreo

Needed to save time to turn projects around faster and with more consistency.

Outstanding Residential Design Concept Presentation Tool

The team I have worked with at Cedreo have all been outstanding. The product has met my expectations and I am encouraged about further improvements to come.

Pros

The product to quickly learn sufficiently to begin to produce design concepts. It produces strong renderings in 3D easy for a client to capture the essence of the design being proposed, so as to provide meaningful comment for further design development. The emphasis is on the providing practical and effective tools for the conceptual design stage, not on producing contract documents, or drawings to submit for approvals.

Cons

No software is perfect, and there are advanced functionality that will need to be developed over time, but the customer support is strong and there seems to be strong receptivity to suggestions for new capabilities. The main limitation for the US market is the Cedreo's French origin in France and product images more typically used there, but this is a limitation, and strengthening the ability to produce more complete plan and elevation drawings are both areas in which Cedero is rapidly making improvements.

Reasons for Choosing Cedreo

Ease of implementation, rapid deployment, reasonable and flexible cost options.

Hello James, thank you for your comment. We keep on improving Cedreo month after month. We've just launched a new version with multiple new features and loads of new 3D objects for the US users. Hope they are useful for you.

Great middle of the road software!

The customer service is great. It has helped me a lot to do general block rendering of things and get an idea of space. However, for detailed drawings I still have to go to other software or hire out the final drawings from someone else as these are not detailed enough.

Pros

I have really liked this software for the ease of use. It also is quick to be able to redraw something you already have.

Cons

The price is a pretty high monthly subscription. The choices of products are very limited and everything comes in odd dimensions. Also the HD feature is not great. It does not look very realistic.

CEDREO UNA MANERA INTERACTIVA Y DIFERENTE DE VER EL MODELAMIENTO DE CASAS

Soy parte de una universidad por lo que he tratado de buscar soluciones y softwares para todo tipo de utilidades, no obstante queda decir que ha sido muy interesante la funcionalidad de diseño de interiores que brinda Cedreo

Pros

Es interesante observar la calidad de renderizado que ofrece, la probe en una Asus i7 de septima generacion y una targeta gráfica de 3gb, no me dio ningun problema de sobrecalentamiento considerando que utilice la calidad más alta de renderizado. Me encanto la parte de diseño de interiores puesto que, en el software de otros proveedores no permite utilizar las diferentes decoraciones que se puede tener en una casa.

Cons

Un apartado que no me gusto mucho fue el precio, aunque adquirí la version gratuita del programa, tenía algunas limitaciones pero nada del otro mundo. El proceso para ingresar y probar la version gratuita se me hizo super extenso, puesto que al vivir en un país de Sudamerica tarda en llegar el mensaje de confirmación. No se que tal sea el rendimiento en computadoras menos potente aunque por el tipo de software y la utilidad que va a realizar obligatoriamente se necesita un equipo equipado.

Great software at a great price.

The greatest benefit has been to allow our clients to visualize their projects.

Pros

This software is easy to use and offers me the ability to let customers see their finished product before it is built. Many customers have a hard time visualizing typical construction plans. The 3D view let our customers get a true feeling of the finished product they will be getting. There are many customizable furniture and household items to give the 3D views a very professional outcome.

Cons

The product is easy to use and many of the windows and doors are customizable. The one thing that is missing from door styles are basic exterior sliding glass doors, but I have always managed with a substitute. Drawing the roofs is sometimes a little tricky but I have successfully learned how to do them after a little trial and error.

Great Value for the Money

Cedreo helped us increase the output of renderings, decreasing overall costs of labour per customer.

Pros

Cedreo is a great piece of software for rapid 3d visualisations. Love it's HD renderings and ability to reuse existing buildings and adapt in a swift. And it most definetly has one of the best support teams I have ever came across.

Cons

It did take some time to get used to the navigation. Some custom made roofs do tend to cause glitches on the walls.

Great for anyone to learn

My experience has been great with Cedreo and learning the software was very easy. I designed my first house fully furnished within a week even with no prior knowledge of how to use the software. Also [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is so so helpful and has been there quickly to help respond to my questions. He is very patient and takes each question seriously.

Pros

The training videos, the customer service, how easy it is to learn, the atmosphere packs are great please get more of those!

Cons

I wish the product line was larger and that colour options were more consistent across the various items so you could match better.

Cutting Edge Technology for Build & Design

Our build and design company is overall very satisfied with the software and the Cedreo team has been a pleasure to work with!

Pros

Cedreo is a very user friendly platform with exceptional features. Minamilst layout and not overly complicated and with minimal training, we have experienced a smooth transition from their former program Cedar Architect. We have been primarily using it for General Contracting and Interior Design but plan to use their new features for our Architectural Design projects. We love the new Blueprint feature for construction plans but anticipating a CAD format feature for our clients in the future. Would highly recommend for any Construction and or Interior and Architecual Design Firms entering the industry.

Cons

I would like to see additional library items as well as CAD format for Blueprints.

Example to supplement the application

Pros

ease of use, good price, availability of basic elements

Cons

Although the basic elements are available, you should increase the product base. It would be good if you could connect to a database of larger home decorating stores, such as ikea and the xxxlutz group.

Very good product at a Very Good Price

Pros

Easy to learn, fast to use. I like the combination of 2D and 3D views and the ease of switching between the two.

Cons

Would love to have improved ability to design kitchens and bathrooms with more flexibility. I look forward to having enhanced flexibility and more finishes to select. I would like to see a renovation aspect that will allow for highlighting changes to assist in creating a scope-of-work.

Is a very good option for rapid models and realistic images of simple or not too complex constructions. It would be great if it had snap points or similar

Pros

The opportunity to make realistic images in a very short time

Cons

To expensive for people like me that desnt use the software too much. The impossibility to download an editable model dwg, ifc or step of the designs. Some elements are not very flexible for edition.
