Pros: Sweet Home 3D is one of the best free and easy programs for creating interior design, with the ability to view in 3D. With the application, you can easily create detailed plans for both a separate room and the whole house, and then place furniture and various objects (doors, Windows, stairs, fences, etc.) at your discretion. With each change in the 2D plan, the 3D view is also updated . Creates nice photo visualizations and even videos of your interior, the ability to print your project and 3D viewing.

Easy program development and ease of use are achieved thanks to the modern, intuitive interface, excellent language localization interface and the presence of detailed interactive prompts during the work on the project.

The program contains a catalog of furniture samples, ordered by category. Interior models are constantly updated and can be downloaded for free from the official website of the developer.

The value of this application lies in the fact that the program has a simple interface, which will be able to understand even a person who does not know 3D-modeling and room design.

Depending on your needs on the website of the program you can also download a library of textures and furniture, as well as installation recommendations.

There is a portable version for using Sweet home 3D on another computer, without losing software configuration.

On the developer's website there are detailed user manual, video tutorials, tips, links to Sweet Home 3D channel on YouTube.

Cons: Some suggestions to software developers:

1. Make the function of scrolling the mouse roller-zoom in and out (as it is on the 3D view), and when you click on it-move the plan.

2. Make the function of group change of objects of the same name in the selection, not each separately.

3. Possibility of a separate selection on the plan below the objects located-under the above (because when you click the mouse, only the upper object is selected).

4. Increase the selection of objects in the catalog (paintings, dressing rooms, different models and types of wardrobes, as well as - kitchen furniture).

5. Make a separate tool - "roulette".

6. Make it possible to install walls at any angle (such as furniture - scroll icon in the corner) and the ability to install objects in addition to the vertical - in the horizontal plane.

7. Make the function "sticking" of objects when their installation does not need to manually connect to each other with angles and straight planes, and the ability to disable this function.

8. Add many more basic shapes, such as: cylinder, cone, sphere, rectangle, parallelepiped, etc., as well as variations of these geometric bodies/shapes and the ability to change their parameters.

And finally, create a more advanced paid version of the program, including the best solutions used in similar programs of other developers.

Overall: A lot of interesting things in this program, it is easy and easy to learn and work.

The program will be useful, first of all, to all people who are planning repairs. The program is a good tool in the self-design of the future look of your apartment, your home or room , without resorting to the help of professional designers, you can own.

The program will also be interesting to furniture designers.

Thanks for your review.
About the cons you reported:
1. You can zoom in and out with mouse wheel while pressing Ctrl key (or cmd key under macOS).
2. You can change a group of objects by selecting them, and choosing the appropriate "Modify" menu item.
3. The "Select object" menu (or "Toggle selection" when you press Shift key) in the contextual menu let you select the object under the mouse pointer.
4 & 8. As you noticed you may download many more free models if needed, and they can be resized as you wish
5. Give more details about the "roulette" tool, I have no idea what it could be.
6. I think walls will always be vertical, see sweethome3d.com for workarounds.
7. Objects are magnetized on their border with a few pixels margin. Check you didn't disable magnetism in preferences.

It is very friendly to use

Pros: The design quality is excellent, comfortable to work with, friendly to use, Design interiors quickly, if they work on it or if they just want to redesign their house. Numerous visual guides help you to draw the plan of your house and the design of furniture. You can draw the walls of your rooms from the image of an existing plane, and then drag and drop the furniture on the plane from a catalog organized by categories. Each change in the 2D plane is simultaneously updated in the 3D view, to show a realistic representation in its design.

Cons: according to the equipment that is being used it is very heavy to start or load, Each window of Sweet Home 3D edits the interior design of the house and is divided into four adjustable panels in size, with a toolbar in its upper part which makes the work uncomfortable since you have to keep many windows open

Overall: There are many pages where you can download this program for free and if you are starting the career of interior design is a very good tool to practice the designs

Highly recommended!

Pros: This software has amazing innovative features for such a small price. It's worth every penny! It was very easy to learn how to use and it is excellent for planning. The program's library has a vast majority of items to choose from which can be imported to sample floor plans. The drag and drop features make the software easy to use and the 2D/3D options are exquisite.

Cons: I have been able to use every feature on this software and it features everything I was looking for in the program, no complaints!
