Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) announced the launch of Autodesk Homestyler – free** online software for 2D and 3D home design and remodeling projects. The product is an easy to use web service that helps home owners and design professionals create room layouts and floor plans with generic and branded content including appliances, fixtures, furnishings, and other building products from Dacor, DuPont, FLOR, Inc., Kohler, Merillat, Sherwin-Williams and other leading manufacturers. Previously available on Autodesk Labs as a technology preview known as Project Dragonfly, Homestyler is now available at www.homestyler.com.
One of the biggest challenges in home remodeling is envisioning the finished project. Making the wrong design and product selection decisions can lead to project delays, expensive changes, and overall dissatisfaction with the process and end result. Using the software, you can easily explore and experiment with different brands, styles, colors, and layouts before you start a project. With no training required, you can create floor plans with drag-and-drop rooms, doors and furnishings; easily experiment with finishes and visualize design ideas in 3D with a single click; and easily share designs with friends, family, and professionals to get their feedback. The Autodesk Homestyler service is free and accessible from most standard Web browsers with no download or installation necessary.
Autodesk Homestyler offers building product manufacturers a new channel to reach and educate consumers on their brands and products. It also offers manufacturers a means of attracting and engaging with visitors to their own web sites with an embedded version of t. Powered by the Autodesk Seek web service, all brands and products included in the Autodesk Homestyler catalog are also available for discovery and download by professional designers and architects using Seek in combination with AutoCAD and Autodesk Revit based design software.
