This is a software program that is ideal for those who like to create sketches of everything from buildings to cars.

The 3D software allows you to design almost anything that you can think of before sharing it on social media sites or on Google Earth. This will allow businesses and others to see your ideas in a way that gives them the details of the lengths and widths that you have in mind so that the project can be completed in the future. It's a software program ideal for architects and contractors who need to see a different kind of image in order to complete a project.

Google Maps is also a part of the software, making it possible to tag the designs that you have made so that others can see where they are located. The software is one that is good for those who don't know a lot about creating images as it shows exactly what you need to do with the lines and other components so that you have a finished product. You can export images to CAD while adding text and graphics so that you can easily go back and change any issues that are wrong or simply look to see where things need to be added with the design. Adding text also makes it easy to see the dimensions for any project that is created.

There aren't a lot of technical phrases used with the system. This makes it easy for even those who don't know anything about the software to create and update a design. Several drawing and filling tools are included. There are also over 100 swatches that are preset that include metal and glass.

Pros

  • Easy to draw in 3D
  • Hints available
  • Text can be added

Cons

  • Hard to make circles and domes
  • Doesn't include everything with a CAD system
