Envisioneer by Cadsoft is a 3D building information modelling platform that assists users in designing, developing and constructing residential projects. The product is offered in four tiers based on the types of professionals and their project requirements.
The first of the four, Personal Architect, is designed for homeowners and hobbyists. It assists in budgeting, scheduling and management of construction activities. Users can also share the 3D designs as images and video files.
Pro Architect is the next level up and is designed for professionals who need to design ideas and then create construction documents. The third tier, Building Essentials is made for builders and remodelers. It includes tools that help users share ideas with clients by providing documents containing construction information.
Construction Suite is best suited for estimators, lumber and building material suppliers and educators. It covers estimate and quotes creation, integrates with point-of-sale and accounting systems and generates material lists from the models.

There is nothing like working with a company that solves even the smallest doubts and helps its customers in all aspects, the services that envisioneer covers so many aspects that no client could be dissatisfied, it seems to me that it is a great company that knows how to focus on what your customers want and solve all the doubts that arise along the way, I think it's very good at what it does and I'm really happy to have chosen to work with Envisioneer .. I do not doubt it, this company makes you want to continue working with her.
I really do not have any complaints to present all I can say are good comments and good things because of the effectiveness and way to treat their customers Envisioneer is undoubtedly one of the best in what it does, I recommend it 100%.

It is good in all aspects. I will work with her again every time, it's really worth it and she encourages you to keep doing it

Once you learn how it operates it is Quick to get a structure up in 3d
They started as a great small caring company.
Customer Service is horrible if you are having a problem, Non Existent Really.
They stall on you and then have you buy the next version.
Eventually the old adage ... "Fool me Once ...Fool Me Twice " comes to light
3d is fairly inaccurate and you must learn many workarounds to get it to a production drawing.... you must Export to AutoCad for best accuracy and performance
Currently they will not give me an authorization key for me to use the software i purchased from them a few years ago, Their key codes run out after a short time and you must acquire another from them.
Overall Don't waste your money ... Go for Revit LT or Archicad and keep up with the industry

Wes, I am sorry that you feel this way. We have always striven for the highest level of customer support.
We will never deny a code - we want you to use the software and get the most out of it. Codes shouldn't ever run out (Unless you were on a payment plan and failed to make a payment) The code can last forever on a computer if you don't change your Windows platform, so please do send in a code request and they will give it to you. We honestly want you to be happy and productive with the program.
Director, Customer Service

Definitely worth a look at. As a direct competitor of Revit, it certainly would capture the design/builder or architect not wishing to outlay the same money as Revit.
Simple design allows you to draw as you would construct a building. The detail that you put into a model pays well at the drafting stages. Changes that need to be made are reflected in the worksheet view (drafting), and are usually simple to implement.
Keyboard shortcuts input similar to autocad make for speed use.
There is a good rendering engine in the program, as well as a deadly accurate cost and quantity estimator, suitable for both metric and imperial.
Drafting is a little slower than it could be. Commands are not as efficient as autocad.
Some modelling shortcomings are more than made up for by importing Sketchup models directly into the program. Examples may be skirting, or cornice mouldings.
