What Our Users Say on the Mac App Store

Very cool!

This app allows me to design a room quickly and share it easily. I love the ability to import from Trimble 3D Warehouse™, I can find almost any 3D object I need and there is no hassle, it just works! Best app I know for home design.


Not Perfect, but closer than anything else I have used. Great App!

I have gone through a lot of so called 3D design apps to just be able to do straight forward home designs, some of them were just crap and few were pretty good. Live is a great App with solid functionality and a fantastic App for the price. If you want something with a quick learning curve and robust features, this does it. As close to perfect as I have seen so far.


Very Intuitive and Powerful

I found this app very easy to use - it did everything I needed it to do in a very intutive manner. The integration between the 2D and 3D views is outstanding. Also, the in-app integration with the Trimble 3D Warehouse™ allows you to add virtually any object to your design seamlessly. The lighting feature was an unexpected surprise - it is great for outlet/lighting placement planning. I highly recommend this app.
