Question about importing

Recommended Posts

I'm about to buy Home Designer. I'm not a professional, so I'd like to know, before purchasing, if it is possible to import a floor plan to use as a guideline instead of building by scratch.

I have in mind to buy a new apartment, so my idea is to start from an existing floor plan.

 

I enclose a sample picture.

 

If this is possible, what kind of file should it be? (jpeg, pdf, dxf.....)

 

I'd also like to have a suggestion on which product would be better to remodel and do the interior design

I do this all the time . . . Start a new scaled plan, click on file / import / picture, pick your .jpg file, insert, and then scale for size. I use Home Designer Pro for all of your requests

Thank you for your reply.

Pro is too expensive for me, I'd like to get either Interiors or 

Suite........ I will check if they have this option

Pro allows image imports (.tiff, .jpg, .png, .bmp) and will handle .dxf imports (not .dwg) and several other file types but not all possible types. You can call Chief Architect Sales to find out more precise information.
