Designing a house can be an intimidating task, especially if you have never done so before and have little to zero knowledge about architecture. Ashampoo Home Designer Pro is a versatile suit that includes numerous tools, functions, wizards and extensive guides to help you remodel your existing house or build your new house from scratch.
The startup screen offers users building wizards, training videos and some preset house projects to get started. The wizards usually starts by asking users to enter the project details, then the parameters that are required to generate a 3D model of the house. These parameters comprise of the shape of the floor plan, unit type, grid size, external and internal dimensions, wall thickness, floor height, and roof settings. Around nine preset roof designs are available that can be further customized using additional settings.
The app will generate a 3D view of the house based on the parameters you entered in the wizard. You can use the mouse to rotate the view, change the light sources, switch to 2D view, and zoom in/out. On the right sidebar, you will find catalog of construction elements (doors, roof window, solar elements, window construction, and window), objects (exterior, component, and people), textures, materials and 2D symbols that you can add to your current project. The left sidebar contains tools to add components, edit surface, and construct stair, roof and terrain.
If you still find it difficult to produce your dream 3D house, you should start watching the training videos that explains in detail all the complex operations you can achieve with the suit or begin using an existing preset template. The templates can be easily modified, as any element on it can be selected and replaced with the one of your choice.
