I wish it had the ability to handle round walls. I know it is not common, but it would make it so much easier for those that have to deal with them.

Beautiful app, easy to use and surprisingly powerful for the price tag! Fast, even in a GMA 950 MacBook. The pro version can export to renderman format that can be used with the free render engine from Pixar itself.
My only remarks is for an App that calls it self Live Interior 3D Pro it lacks costs controls, there's no way to insert values for the new paint or the chairs we use and in the end know how the new design will cost...

This is one of the most enjoyable Mac programs I've ever purchased. I've owned both version 1 and 2. The program makes designing room layouts exceptionally easy. Click the wall tool, click 4 times (the four corners), and you have a room. Click another button and you see it in 3D. Adding doors or windows is as simple as dragging the item from a shelf and dropping it on the wall where it should be.

I've used this program for determining if new furniture would fit in my apartment or in a moving van, laying out some friends' entire house (during construction) to help them choose things like floors, cabinets, countertops, and for helping design an in-house theater room with raised seating on the second row.

I could go on and on about the great features, but here are 3 examples. You have a PDF of the floor-plans to your home. Drop it into LI3D and draw your walls on top; you're done! Or you want to add your real wall decorations (paintings, photos) to your model, so you take a digital photo and import it into the program. And my favorite, you can find new objects to import in the Google 3D warehouse: plants, chairs, electronics, your car to put in the garage, and those are all free.

This program shines in how quickly you can get 80% of your modeling done. It's fast. The 20% that is slow is the fine-tuning of the details: wall color, crown molding, and baseboards, for example. But if you take the time you can create models which are surprisingly realistic, especially for an $80 program.

Overall this could be a great piece of software, yet the 2D drafting tools are a little awkward and make it difficult to be precise, for example the grid becomes very choppy-looking at high magnification percentages (though for precise-snapping/measurements it is often important to magnify a lot as the grid automatically changes it's definition as one changes magnification). It would be nice to have a panel that would allow one to place guides entering their coordinates. I also find that snapping is a little fickle (with no preference to be set in this realm). Also the usual Mac shift/constrain does not apply in this software... Overall it seems to me the 2D environment still needs quite a bit of refining/rethinking. On the 3D side it is pretty-well done.. though the 3D import is limited (.obj support would be welcome for instance.. for example some sort of Poser import to bring in a few people to amke a scene more lively and give a better scaling appreciation of space). Also is no way to decide on a scale of import for 3DS objects (no import preference whatsoever). Last but not least, user-created guides are on a same layer as walls, furniture and all objects, yet cannot be locked as can objects. For exmapl if you do a select all.. your guides get selected. Some sort of layer system (apart from the "storeys") would be very welcome.. as it is the project tree can get quite confusing and it would be nice to be able to create one's own folder structure.. the only way to sort of do this is to group objects. Overall I like this soft.. and really hope it will become a little more refined.
