Ashampoo 3D CAD Architecture will help you design shopping malls, family homes, high-rise buildings, or simply a basic apartment; and all this are performed within an interactive and a realistic 3D world. All views and windows are updated synchronously, regardless of whether you are planning in the 3D-window, a 2D plan or a cross section view. Easy to use but nevertheless with very accurate results.
Design views: 2D, 3D, Cross-section
3D constructions: 7 primitives (cube, cone, cylinder, sphere, torus, wedge, pyramid), extrusion/rotation/sweep/subtraction solids
Building components: Walls, ceilings, windows, doors, openings, slots, skylights, solar elements, chimneys, beams
Measurements: Metric and imperial with precise dimensions
Input aids: Customizable reference points, construction aids (center point, intersection point, point with distance from, perpendicular, parallel point, point in line, enter coordinates), angle grid
Exterior lighting simulation
Freely positionable camera and viewing angles
