Sweet Home 3D is an excellent program to use in my spare time and easy to use

Pros

I love the split screen feature, the ease of use, and the variety of objects available. Sweet Home 3D allows me to be creative in my sample plans without stressing about figuring out how to use it.

Brilliant and its free !

As an ex pro software developer I am a hard critic to impress but really I love this product, it is absolutely ideal for my project. I would encourage serious users to also upload the furniture library software which enables you to create your own custom furniture library to share across projects very easily. Furniture in this context does not just mean chairs, it can mean shelves, mirrors, toilets, freezers, kitchens and outdoor plants and even windows and doors. Following online tutorials you can custom build windows which was important for my project, I am using some very large windows - simply scaling a small window creates a disproportionately large frame -better to design your own and this software offers that. You can even specify that your newly created window will auto-cut its profile when inserted into a wall. The software is free but happy users can donate. I donated $15 within a few days and decided to follow it up with perhaps ten times that amount once my project lifts off the launch pad. I really hope other users do likewise - free software as good as this does not grow on trees and the author really deserves every inch of gratitude.

Pros

I am designing three buildings, modern Scandanavian design before asking architect to shape it up, one main house and two lodges for tourist guests. I am using linux - Sweethome works great on linux. I am an ex CADCAM software engineer and I am blown away how one developer has grown such a reliable sophisticated product yet kept it simple, it does exactly what I need, its reliable, well written and intuitive - someone has put a lot of care and attention into this. My construction will be steel frame with insulated panels but I do not want to handle that level of detail in my design - I just want to say - thats a wall and its X thick etc. This is exactly the level this software is pitched at - I will leave the architect and structural engineer to the detail of the inner construction of the walls I intend throughout the build to keep my local model on Sweethome in step with the models that my architect will create on his/her own software. Whenever they propose a change I will wish to update my model so that I can spend the countless hours reviewing changes on my time not my architects time - it costs me to stand in the architects office!!! Every additional feature I found myself wanting in the first couple of weeks of very intensive use ( ten hours a day ) turned out to be already there. Its wonderful when you think "I need something to do XYZ" and you dig around a little and find out that its already there. And to top it all its free - seriously 11 out of 10 !!

Cons

Absolutely nothing. I can think of some enhancements but its really not fair to list those here because they are not CONS - all software evolves and by definition there are always items on the wish list.

Good for Realtors or quick presentations.

Pros

Shows some great 3D presentations to wow the client in a quick pinch.

Cons

A bit clunky and not as quite beefy as other 3D rendering programs.

Sweet home 3d is easy for new user

It is good for common people but for the experts it has to develop it's features.

Pros

It is easy to use. No more objection in using it. New users can also work on this software. It's help options are also very good or it also supports all type Windows. It's menus are very helpful to use this software.

Cons

It's home tool's option are not much well. It has to make it more good.

Decent program if you can afford it!

I’ve been able to solve all of my business needs with remodeling my home for it to be transitional from a in home day care to my actual home! This software has made it extremely possible to see what I want and make changes before actually completing the project so that way I can add or remove any item before actually doing it! This makes it so much easier to imagine your finished product and know exactly what you are wanting done and how you would like the finished product to be, before actually doing it physically!

Pros

I absolutely love being able to have all of my 2D drawings and my 3D rooms in one app, it makes things so much easier to see the plan before actually building or moving things!

Cons

My least favorite feature would have to be the pricing. I don’t think just anyone can use this software and would take a professional to be able to do everything needed the proper way!
