FloorPlan 3D Design Suite is a collection of applications that includes FloorPlan 3D (with integrated Lightscape rendering engine), Landscape Architect, TurboProject Express and Home Designs Encyclopedia. The suite is a good combination for someone planning some building works, there is no facility to transfer information automatically or even easily between applications.
FloorPlan 3D is a sophisticated version of DreamHouse 3D and some of the shortcomings in DreamHouse 3D are rectified here. FloorPlan 3D allows you to set ceiling heights, window and door head heights. FloorPlan 3D also allows you to transfer your drawing to a real CAD program via a DXF export.
You can create a virtual landscape using typical plants and landscape elements in Landscape Architect, a 3D garden design package. The landscape content has a heavy US bias and includes no Australian native plants. Landscape Architect is a little tedious to use. It does not utilise right mouse clicks or Windows shortcuts (like Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V for copy and paste). It also needs significant computing horsepower. Documentation is a PDF file on the CD.
