Ashampoo 3D CAD Architecture 5 is a comprehensive virtual architectural planning program for PC that features professional tools, but is also suitable for amateur home designers.
Tailored for home and garden design
If you've ever wanted to design your own home or garden from the ground up, Ashampoo 3D CAD Architecture 5 is perfectly tailored for the job. There's lots of attention to detail to keep professionals happy, but the overall interface is a lot more user friendly than professional CAD packages.
Ashampoo 3D CAD Architecture 5 has a range of handy features, including the ability to switch between 2D and 3D structures, internal and external structure views, and a 360-degree panoramic toggle feature that lets you see your project from all angles. There are a few other neat features too, such as the ability to change the time of day so you can see what your structure looks like in all light settings.
This latest version includes improved 64-bit performance plus a slicker Microsoft Office style ribbon interface. For professionals who feel this has "dumbed-down" the product somewhat, you can revert to the classic look too. Other useful new additions include 2D fill effects, more design wizards and an extended catalog of objects.
Accessible for general users
Although Ashampoo 3D CAD Architecture 5 has plenty of professional level features and tools, it's not impossible for beginners to learn. There are lots of easy-to-follow tutorials for those new to CAD and the interface is a lot simpler and less intimidating than professional CAD packages. However, some previous experience with CAD is a big advantage, as experienced users will recognize the format of the program and tools and be up and running very quickly.
A powerful tool for home design
Suitable for a range of abilities, Ashampoo 3D CAD Architecture 5 is a powerful CAD program for those that are serious about home design.
