- The user can draw rooms, walls, drag and drop objects (windows, doors, and any type of furniture) on a 2D plan
- Modify texture, size and colors of furniture, walls, ceilings, and floors.
- Preview changes made to your furniture in the 3D view
- Import/Export 3D models with support of various file formats.
