Sweet Home 3D Blog

This blog presents news and tips about Sweet Home 3D.

And you, how do you use your Sweet Home 3D? Episode 30

Ulli has designed large construction sites during his work for a while. A quite unusual and impressive way to use Sweet Home 3D!
We sent him the following questions:

- Why and when did you choose Sweet Home 3D in your field of activities?

After I have found out how easy it is to use Sweet Home 3D we have started to use it for our purposes.

- The pictures you present represents quite large areas. Are the plans also used for some implementation details?

The plans are basically used to analyze space requirements on a site in 2D which in the same time is used to visualize and illustrate the expected site situation in 3D. This helps us to explain certain site set-up issues much faster. It also helps very well to show, highlight and mitigate safety hazards caused by the planned site set-up. For detailed planning CAD software needs to be used.

- Which recent additions to Sweet Home 3D are most useful to you? Roads ? The Terrain Generator plugin?

The Terrain generator is a handy plug-in helping us to model construction sites located in challenging landscapes. At the beginning it was a bit tricky to use it, after a while it's common practice.*

- What features are you missing now?

It would be nice to have a quick video preview feature. This would allow to adapt the video several times quickly before it is finally rendered. **

- What training did your international employees receive for Sweet Home 3D? Do you use Sweet Home 3D in different languages?

Sweet Home 3D is more or less self-explaining. To work with several levels or how to apply the video feature efficiently requires a bit training. We use Sweet Home 3D in two languages, English and German.

Thank you very much, Ulli. All the best to you and your company!

* The two sites above were designed before the Terrain Generator plugin.
** This feature partially already exists, using the Play button in the Create video tool.
