Eleco Visualisation Software is pleased to announce the new range of GRAND DESIGNS 3D Home Designer Software.
Grand Designs 3D is for anyone inspired by Grand Designs and wishing to communicate their own ideas. Grand Designs 3D allows users to bring these ideas to life before seeking professional advice, whether changing existing homes or contemplating a self build project.
Using 2D drawing tools before visualising them in a 3D environment will breathe life into any ideas. A database of fixtures and fittings allows each project to be furnished and decorated with rendered images demonstrating the effects of texturing, lighting and even shadows. Finally, the 3D walk through feature allows each project to be examined in close-up detail and provides a genuine impression of moving in to the finished home or room.
The software includes some content from the Grand Designs TV programme, such as 2D interior and exterior plans from TV projects and 3D models. You can even base your ideas on your favourite Grand Design from the show. The larger programs will also allow users to export industry standard drawings, in formats used by professional architects and planning authorities.
To complement the software there is a support site [www.3Darchitect.co.uk], which will enable users to download additional content .
The Grand Designs 3D home design software range will run on Windows XP/Vista.
