Ashampoo Home Designer 2.0
Plan out the look of your next home decoration or renovation project

Ashampoo Home Designer is a 3D home planning tool which makes it easy to see how your next home project will look, without having to pay for a professional designer.

You start by providing the dimensions of your room, then add walls, windows, doors, maybe carpets to create the initial shell. Then you'll add further objects - the tables, chairs, bath, TV cooker, whatever's appropriate - and reorganise, rearrange and relocate these until you find the layout you need.

And then you can dress it further for enhanced realism. Would your room look better with parquet flooring or granite tiles, for instance? Choose the appropriate material and you'll see, right away. You're even able to import your own photos to use as backgrounds, maybe a view of your garden as it will appear through the window, to give you the best possible idea of how your romm will appear in real life.

It's hard to tell what works from a standard 2D view, of course, so Ashampoo Home Designer also allows you to look at your new room from any angle and position: outside the room, inside, above or below, from the door, the window, with whatever perspective and zoom factor you like.

Whatever your viewpoint, professional lighting and ray-tracing algorithms mean the program will quickly deliver an attractive and very realistic view of your plan. And you can then share this with others in a variety of ways, from multiple bitmaps showing the room from every angle, to lists of the fixtures, fittings and materials you've used, perfect if you now want to ask a professional builder or other tradesman to carry out this work for you.

Verdict:

The program is a little short on 3D objects - there are only a few kitchen appliances, for instance - but if you can make do with the selection on offer then Ashampoo Home Designer will prove a straightforward and easy-to-use CAD and home planning tool

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
