Design Tool


Hello,

I am looking for a free 3D tool that I can use to Design my basement layout? Anyone know of any? I do have Visio, but not sure if it can do 3D layouts, I never used Visio before.

Please let me know thanks.

Google Sketchup is free.

I don't really care for it but it's free and other people seem to like it.

Sketchup is free and pretty powerful, but it's not the easiest software to use. That being said, I've done some pretty cool stuff with it and it's my planning software for how I'm doing my basement.

Here's a 2D export of my remodel.
