I have been searching for software that I can use to design kitchens and
baths for a few different properties that I own. I have posted this
question here and elsewhere in the past under a different user name. The
problem that I have been having is that the software that I did end up
buying before is just plain too hard to use (in my opinion).
I found something online called Plan3D, and I bought it a few days ago. So
far, I like it and I am learning to use it. I am finding it much easier to
use than everything else that I have seen.
When I went to the Plan3D website to read about it, it seemed like the only
option was to go ahead and buy it, and I ended up doing that. Their website
says that it costs $15.95 to buy it and use it for one month, or $35.40 for
unlimited use of the software for one year. I took a chance and did the
After I signed up, I realized that there is a way to try out the software
for free. The free version allows you to do everything that the paid
version does, but you can't save your work. So, in case anyone wants to try
it out and play with the software for free, here is a link to do that:
You download and install the software, and then instead of logging in
as a registered user, you just log in as a guest. Just remember that you
cannot save any of your work.
One drawback that I do not like about the Plan3D software (as a paid
user) is that there does not appear to be any user group or forum where
users of the software can post questions and help each other in figuring out
and using the software. That's unfortunate, and I hope that at some point
to company that created the software will set something like that up. I
think that would be a huge improvement.
Since there is no Plan3D user group that I could find, I decided to
set up a Plan3D Yahoo Group at:
So, if anyone out there happens to be using the Plan3D software and
wants to join the Plan3D Yahoo Group, please feel free to do so.
NOTE: I don't work for the company and I don't get anything out of
this whether people buy or use the software or not. I'm just passing on
Also, if anyone knows of other kitchen and bath design software that
they would recommend or suggest, please post that here.
