6.    Launch Sweet Home 3D and you’ll see four panels. The top-left shows the library of models, and below is a list of models used in your design. The top-right is a plan view, where the design takes place. Below that is a 3D view. To create the perimeter walls of the room, you must know its measurements, including celling height and distance from the corner to windows and doors. Click the File menu, Preferences, and type the ceiling height into the ‘New walls height’ box. Set New wall thickness to 100mm and click OK. Click the Create Walls button. Click in the plan view and move the mouse to create the first wall. Click to form a corner and continue until all the walls are created, then hit Esc.

7.    In the top-left panel, click to expand to Doors and windows folder and drag the items into your model. They’ll snap to the walls and, as you drag them into place, measurements will show how far along the wall they are. To set the doors and windows’ width, double-click and change the Width value in the pop-up box. For windows, you might want to set the Height and Elevation values, too, where elevation is the height from the floor.

You can change these values directly in the plan view. When an object is selected, handles appear in the four corners, controlling width and depth, height, elevation and rotation. The move an object, click in the center and drag it. Give the 3D view a spin by dragging with the mouse to see how your room looks.

Click the Create Rooms button (to the right of Create Walls) and double-click inside your room in the plan view

8.    Click the Create Rooms button (to the right of Create Walls) and double-click inside your room in the plan view. This adds a floor and ceiling to your model, although the ceiling isn’t visible yet.

Now is a good time to add some color to your room. Return to the Select tool (an arrow icon), double-click the floor and, in the dialog box that appears, choose a color or texture for the floor and ceiling. You can import JPEGs to use as textures, and even take a photo of your floor to use here. Click the button beside Texture, Import, Choose image and browse to the JPEG. Click Continue, name the texture and enter the size, which defines how regularly the image is repeated. Use this process to add color or texture to your walls. You’ll need to change each wall’s color individually.

Click the Create Rooms button (to the right of Create Walls) and double-click inside your room in the plan view.

9.    Fill your room with the 3D models created in SketchUp. Right-click the top-left panel and select Import furniture. Click Choose model, locate the DAE file you created and double-click to select it. Click Continue and use the buttons to make it face the right way. Click Continue and name the model, choose a folder and check the external dimensions are correct. If you’re using a model from the 3D Warehouse, you may need to untick Keep proportions and adjust width, depth and height. Click Continue, Finish to add the model to Sweet Home 3D’s library. Drag the models into the room, trying out ideas and inspecting them in the 3D view.

10.  Sweet Home 3D’s standard 3D view looks basic, but it can generate higher quality images with shadows and reflections. Adjust the dividing lines between the four panels so the 3D view is photo-shaped. Rotate and zoom it as necessary. It might be worth switching to Virtual Visit to get an eye-level view of the room; do this by right-clicking the 3D view. Right-click again, select Modify virtual visitor, and increase the Field of view to 1000 for a wide-angle view that takes in the whole room. Right-yet click again and select Create Photo. Drag the Quality slider to Best and increase the Width to 2,000 to generate a high-resolution image. Adjust the date and time to see sunlight coming through the windows (adjust the compass in the plan view for authenticity). Click Create and then, when the image is generated, click Save to save it to your hard disk.
