Automated Building Tools

One of the most powerful features in all Home Designer products is accurate automatic building tools consistent with the home building industry. Most home design apps are published by vendors that are not in the housing industry. Home Designer is produced by the creators of Chief Architect; the same software professionals use. Home Designer's Automated Building Tools include:

  • Automatic Roofs
    Roofs are simple, accurate, and update as you make changes to your design. A variety of roof styles are available with simple step‑by‑step instructions. Roofs frame accurately for every style.
  • Automatic Ceilings
    Ceilings generate automatically for each room. Home Designer Suite offers several options for creating cathedral, shed, or vaulted ceilings. Ceiling heights can be adjusted easily room‑by‑room.
  • Automatic Foundations
    Foundations automatically generate with footings and update as the main floor plan changes.
  • Automatic Floors
    Floors and floor platforms generate automatically and include structural components and floor finishes. Floors can easily be raised or lowered.
  • Automatic Framing
    Home Designer Suite generates accurate framing automatically as you draw.

Cabinets are Smart Objects

Cabinets automatically conform to common kitchen and bath standards — e.g. when a cabinet is resized from 24" to 36", the door will become a double door. When you place cabinets in a corner, they automatically become corner cabinets. Cabinets are fully customizable with 24 door/drawer styles and can be edited in both 2D and 3D views. There is a wide variety of built‑in islands and pre‑designed kitchens that can be placed directly into your drawing from the Library.

Stairs are Smart Objects

Automatically connect floor‑to‑floor. Stairs have an auto stairwell tool that produces an opening with railing. Add L‑shaped, U‑shaped, and curved stairs with a single click. Customization of stairs allows you to create a variety of styles and options.

Doors & Windows are Smart Objects

When you place a door or window in a wall the program automatically frames that opening accurately — including the header. There are a wide variety of options and shapes that can easily be customized.

3D Models and 3D Renderings

3D navigation, rendering, and editing is a clear advantage with Home Designer. You can show reflections, ambient occlusion, and bloom; all of which greatly improve the overall rendering quality. 3D navigation is natural and easy. You can edit in both 3D and 2D simultaneously using a split screen view. See examples in the Home Designer sample gallery.

360° renders can be exported to the Chief Architect Cloud (free) and then viewed or shared with virtual reality goggles such as Google Cardboard.
