While planning a house, there is a lot of curiosity that how the house will look when it is completed and if you shift to a new house, whether your existing furniture and accessories will fit in it or not, then for all this a 3D model of the house becomes necessary.
So let us talk about some such mobile apps, with the help of which you can also view 3D model of your house apart from creating a floor plan and interior design.
How can mobile apps help in planning a new home?
There are total of 5 steps for house planning, whose architect demands different money according to each state.
In which the first step is the house map or 2D plan, the second structural design in which the working design of the house's foundation, column, beam etc. is the third elevation in which the design of the house will be and how it will look. The fourth step is the 3D model and the fifth step estimation i.e. how much will be the total cost to build a house by adding material and labour charges.
So it happens that people follow the first 2-3 steps because it is necessary but skip the remaining 2 steps because making a 3D model of the house is a bit costly and for this, the cost of 1 view can come up to Rs 4 to 6 thousand and for 1 view like only the front view of the house, you may have to pay so much money.
Whereas we can do many of these tasks through mobile app and no special training is required for this. By the way, in order to make a map of your house, you need to have basic civil key knowledge such as the length of the beam or column and their distance etc.

By the way, you can do this work by going to the website of all these apps in the browser of the computer and if you have a 2D plan of the house, then by making the same plan inside these apps, you can see its 3D view.
