Does anyone have a sketching software they like/recommend for interiors/floor plans/landscape/hardscape? I’ve already done some research on Sketchup, but I am also looking into alternatives.
Ideally, the software would be able to
- *Accommodate team collaboration (cloud functionality a must)
- *Have the ability to create 3D renderings (and 2D printed copies) of floor plans, as well as landscape/hardscape designs
- *Be able to outline the finishes (I.e., what finishes go where) plan, both interior and exterior, at a detailed level
As an architectural designer I primarily use Revit, by autodesk. It has a learning curve for sure, but it is a really powerful program capable of doing everything you've asked about, and makes it incredibly easy to translate into sheets for permitting and construction. Not free like sketchup though! If you know someone with an education email you can typically get a free version with full capability.
Nicola, apologies but I somehow missed your response to this. Thank you very much for your input.
