Home 3D [rating: 4/5]
Makes Designing Your Dream Home a Breeze!
House makeover shows are huge on TV at the moment, they aren’t just on their own dedicated channels but are on the main stream channels too and that is simply because they are extremely popular. Hoping to catch in on some of that popularity are Black Mana Studios with their release of Home 3D which enables you to accurately create your dream home or your current home to plan your re-design.
All of this is planned out in 2D and then miraculously converted to 3D allowing you to walk around your ‘new’ home to get an accurate feel of how it would look producing some pretty good results.
You have to start from scratch when building your home, perhaps the inclusion of a completed demo home would have been nice to give you an immediate feel of how this look, and you can select some a pre-set range of room or name and create your very own. This is all very simply to do and you can add additional rooms and floors at the touch of a button. You can then add and position doors and before you know it you’ll be ready to jump into 3D mode to get a true feel of how your virtual home looks.
This is only the beginning though, you can then easily add, move and rotate furniture and appliances as well as add custom floors and wallpapers. There are many choices to choose from included in the app already but should you not find the perfect representation that you car looking for you can also purchase additional items via in app purchases.
While it’s relatively simple to build your 3D home they have provided 12 separate videos guiding you through how to manage each part of your build. Each of them are well presented as well and are certainly worth sitting through.
You can build your dream home in either landscape or portrait mode and also change any of the other settings to suit your own preferences. It’s also possible to export your finished work of art as a picture to your Photo Library or directly via email so that you can show off your plans to your partner, friends or real estate agent!
