Floor Plans and Renderings made Easy



If you are in the business of creating renderings of rooms and furniture layouts then123d.com could be very helpful. This site offers a gallery of all types of furniture including sofas, tables and even staircases that can be simply put into place without any altering or cleanup necessary. The models are fully textured with all materials applied and presented in groups and named for easy selection. Many of the furniture models are classic designs like the LC1 armchair designed by Le Corbusier, and the Wassilyarmchair designed by Marcel Breuer. In addition to this category there are also gardening, rugs, boardroom, and architecture all in .max & .3ds and .max Vray. plus .lwo & .obj. file formats. This program would be perfect for decorators and designers doing floor planning for a residential or commercial project, and would really help with visualizing the final product in a 3D rendering.
