Sweet Home 3D v.3.4


Sweet Home 3D is a free interior design application that helps you place your furniture on a house 2D plan, with a 3D preview.

Sweet Home 3D helps you to design your interior quickly and easily: draw the walls of your home upon the image of an existing plan, change the color or the texture of each room, and drag and drop furniture onto the plan from a catalog organized by categories (windows, doors, living room, kitchen), in which you can import 3D models created by yourself or downloaded from various Web sites.

All the changes made in the 2D plan are simultaneously reflected in a 3D view, and you can navigate in it either from an aerial view point, or from a virtual visitor view point. Finally, you can improve your home plan by adding dimensions and texts to it, print it along with the 3D view, create a photorealistic image of the 3D view, and export the plan to SVG format or the 3D view to OBJ format to import them in other 2D or 3D software.

New Features:

Round walls
If you keep pressed the ctrl key (or alt key under Mac OS X) while clicking at the end point of a wall, a round wall will be created and its extent angle will depend on the point where you'll click a third time. You may also change the arc extent of a round wall afterwards with the new Arc extent field in the Wall modification pane. As the following image shows, it's possible to place windows or doors in the round walls but you'll have to change manually the angle and the depth of the window to build a correct hole in the wall.

Storing points of view
Do you like a particular point of view but still want to navigate in your home? Do you want to compare the view from two different places? You can now store 10 points of view with the new 3D view > Store point of view... menu item and then go back to one of them with the 3D view > Go to point of view menu that will be filled automatically.

When you'll launch Sweet Home 3D version 3.0, you'll immediately notice the new compass rose displayed at the top left of the plan. When selected, this compass rose can be moved, resized or rotated as you wish. If you want to hide or show it (homes created with previous versions of Sweet Home 3D won't show it), use the Visible in plan check box of the Compass modification pane displayed with a double-click on the compass rose or with the new Plan > Modify compass... menu item. This new pane lets you edit compass rose attributes and also the geographic location and the time zone of the place where is the edited house. As there's no GPS in your computer (or if there's one, I didn't learn how to get its information by program yet), you'll have to check this information if you want to take profit of Sweet Home 3D ability to compute the sun location in the sky.

Photo rendering improvements
The features proposed by the Advanced rendering plug-in are now completely integrated to Sweet Home 3D itself. All the parameters in relation with home location were added to the Compass pane, and the ones that may vary more often from a photo to an other like Time / Date and Lens were added to the Photo and Video creation dialog when either two best quality settings are selected.
