Exterior and Interior Design Visualization

Cross Sections & Elevations

Remove a 3D slice from your design and create a new detailed view using the 3D cross section elevation slider. From front to back, or side to side, this tool will let you look through your design from any point. Cross Sections are a great way to help you communicate the details of your design. Use the Remove Surface tool to see into tight spaces or to produce architectural style views.

Automatic Dormers

Dormers & Skylights Tools

The Auto Dormer tool has gable, hip shed and barrel dormers. Click to place on the roof and software create all the structural elements so the framing and roof cutout are accurate. Skylights work the same way — click to place and then re-size. Skylights bring natural light into your model to easily see the effects.

Stair and Ramp Styles

Stair & Ramp Tools

Home Designer's stair tool can create straight, curved, split stairs and ramps. You can customize the number of stair sections, tread height and railing style. Home Designer includes defaults typically used in construction to make stairs easy to build. There is an automatic stairwell tool to create a stair opening. Additionally, you can use a One-Click Stair tool to automatically place stairs and ramps between platforms. With Home Designer Pro, you will find advanced settings and control for stairs.

Automatic 3D Framing

Automatic & Manual Framing Tools

Use the framing tools to automatically create the structure for your design. For each room, define floor and ceiling heights and the platform dimensions — framing will automatically update. Visualize framing in 3D with the Framing Camera. Every framing member, including decking, is automatically added to the materials list. Manual framing tools are available in Home Designer Pro — great for custom framing.

Material Lists and Cost Estimating

Cost Estimating & Materials Lists

What will my new home or remodeling project look like and how much will it cost? Home Designer creates a detailed list of materials by category with the description and quantity of materials visible in spreadsheet format. The program retains all the information on each element by category, such as doors, windows, cabinets, framing, and concrete, and automatically adds it to the materials list — making it easy estimate costs

Landscape and Site Planning

Site Plans & Landscaping

Design your lot and landscaping with easy to use terrain tools. Use the Automatic Build Terrain and Terrain Perimeter tools to create flat, irregular shaped or sloped lots. Use a GPS to import or enter elevation data into the program for your terrain detail. Other terrain features — like hills, valleys, roads, sidewalks, and driveways can help to complete a realistic site plan. Pre-arranged landscaping beds and over 3,600 realistic plants can be used for your home landscape project.
