Features[edit]

  • Draw walls and rooms of your home from scratch or upon the image of an existing plan, on one or more levels.
  • Change the color or the texture of the walls, the floors and the ceilings, importing images of your own patterns if needed.
  • Drag and drop doors, windows and furniture onto the plan from a catalog of objects organized by categories, in which you can import 3D models created by yourself or downloaded from the web.
  • Customize the size, the orientation, the elevation, the colors and the textures of each piece of furniture.
  • View the changes in the plan simultaneously in a 3D view, in which you can navigate either from an aerial view point, or from a virtual visitor view point.
  • Annotate the plan with room areas, dimension lines, texts and show the North direction with a compass rose.
  • Create a photorealistic image of your arrangement depending on the time of the day and the light sources placed in the plan.
  • Create a video from a virtual path in the 3D view.
  • Print the home plan and the 3D view or export them in files at PDF, PNG, JPEG, SVG, OBJ standard formats, to reuse designed homes in other software.
  • Extend the features of Sweet Home 3D with plug-ins programmed in Java, or by developing a derived version based on its Model View Controller architecture.
