  1. I have decided to hold on to the Home Designer software because it´s nice and logical to use. I will keep the Architectural version for a while, but in the future I will upgrade to Pro (I already miss the Multiple-Select editing "tool" avaiable in the Pro version).
  2. Yes, I think it is a good idea to clarify my goals first. I will just design houses/buildings for fun..for my own pleasure. You know..have an idea in my head and then try to design it in a 3D software. Maybe sometimes I want to do a 3D-model of an already existing house. The most interesting for me is the exterior design, I think (the look of the house from outside, parking lot, the landscape around the house etc). It is also interesting to "draw" the inner walls and decide where the toilet, living room, master bedroom etc should be placed. Right now I dont care much about how the kitchen
  3. I have just purchased the Home Designer Architectural version and I think it is a nice version to begin with. I also feel that 3D programs are something I will keep using in the future. Over time I will get better and learn more (I hope), so the big question is if a more professional version of the Home designer/Chief Architect program is the way to go for me in the future!? I will just do this for fun..for my own pleasure. But I want to design/modeling european houses/buildings..real houses/buildings.

  4. Today I decided to buy the Architectural version. It is now downloaded and installed! I have gained an insight into the program through the trial, but newly begun, there is much left to learn about all the opportunities available in the program. The Architectual version feels like a good version to start with, I think. The day I find that the tools in this version are not sufficient for me, I will upgrade to the Pro version. But right now I think I'm happy with my choice!
  5. Thank you very much for your answer and advice! I think I am going for the Pro version - it feels right,,and if I had bought the Architectural version I probably had upgraded to the Pro version after some weeks or months anyway. I'll play with the Pro trial version one or two days more before I decide completely, but right now the Pro version feels like the right choice I must say..
  6. I am a newbie to all kind of 3D-programs, but have become interested in designing/modelling houses and other buildings. I have downloaded the test version of Home Designer Pro and I liked it very much. It seems to be a great program for my needs (but as a beginner it is hard to know what the needs really are..). I have compared different versions of the Home Designer and the more professional Chief Architect Premier X8. The Premier is to expensive and I don't need such a professional software to do what I want..I think. The Home Designer Suite packade seems on the other hand to be a little bi
