Send Orthographic view to someone

Recommended Posts

Is there a way I can send an orthographic view to someone so they can rotate the house and look at it from different angles?

Like some kind of file that has a 3d viewer?

No, no home designer title can export useful 3D models for use in viewers, except .stl files and I do not know a viewer that handles them (perhaps there is one, I just do not know of it). I post 3D models to Sketchfab using 3DS format but I use Chief Premier which as greater capabilities. Premier also outputs to other 3D files that can be used in other applications. I know you are probably tired of hearing this but you actually do get only what you pay for. I have never used this application but you are free to : https://a360.autodesk.com/?gclid=CLD235P4oMsCFZE0aQodcXcCJQ&gclsrc=aw.ds

PS: I signed up for a free account and this was the result of a simple .stl upload I made of a garage plan created by others:

It is not Great but it is free and fully 3D

You can send someone the plan (using the Backup Entire Plan tool and compress the folder to send to them) and they can request a free copy of the Chief Architect Viewer to take camera views of the plan.

David,

That link seems to have expired.  It brought me to a location with an error message. I will look into it further.

 

Kat,

Thanks for the idea. From what I can tell, reading about it, it only works with Chief Architect products, not with Home Designer.  I didn't try it to see.

Update - In my HD Pro, the export 3d stl is not available, it is grayed out under Export.

I recommend that you call Chief Architect Sales and ask them for advice.
