View your site plan in 3D while you arrange, rotate and replace furniture until you find the perfect combination for your design. Once your site plan is complete, you can take a virtual tour in 3D, by switching to the first-person viewing mode. Move the avatar around your home and garden to visualize your project in 3D. Generate realistic 3D rendered images of your project and 360º views to share with your friends, family and project associates.

Types of Site Plans
2D Site Plans
2D site plans are great for providing an outline and broad view of a property as seen from above. Both indoor and outdoor features are included, such as staircases, doorways, main furniture and outdoor plants. Choose whether or not to show measurements and surface areas on your 2D site plan.
3D Site Plans
