Included is an interactive 3D environment allowing you to explore, furnish and apply lighting effects so you can create a true impression of how your finished design will look and feel. Analyze your design in detail with the walkthrough function. Enter and explore your 3D model to check for space issues and practicality of your design.

What our customers are saying

"In our option study of the CAD packages, we discovered that some were very expensive, and others were simply too basic. Of the remaining packages, the only package that met all of our requirements was 3D Architect Home Designer Pro. 3D Architect Home Designer Pro lived up to it's promise, and we created the drawings we needed for our planning application. We used 3D Architect Home Designer Pro, which allowed us to build our complex model and the merging of our complex roof shapes." - Peter Romanik

"It’s CAD Jim but not as we know it’, well certainly not in my previous experience. I had been working with my previous software for a number of years until my recent purchase of a dedicated building CAD programme, 3D Architect Home Designer Expert. The difference is immense. Where I previously used a sort of ‘architectural word processor’, I now had access to real precision. My previous programme’s 3D views were unusable, Home Designer Expert’s intuitive and genuinely useful, providing an instant switch between recognisable elevation to plan view. My experience with the company was further embellished by the invaluable and prompt support. Not only is the software excellent, the customer service is superlative" - Michael Purdy

"I have been using various house CAD packages since 2002 (Floorplan, Punch, Chief Architect - tried them all, and bought 4x versions of Arcon) and can honestly say Arcon Evo is head and shoulders above the rest" - Peter Hodgson, Arcon customer since 2005

"Just to say many thanks for the additional guidance, I managed to follow all the steps ok and we have been able to discuss as a family the current working draft which has been really helpful. I will make a new draft with changes we all discussed and hope to use more of the software capabilities" - Andy Nash
