Project DragonFly

Technology Preview from Autodesk Labs

I tried out Project DragonFly on the Lab site.  It was amazingly easy to use.  The online interface was easy to figure out and there was enough content to make a go of it. Obviously this is not a tool for the architectural crowd out there, but it is rather fun.

You could use it to fiddle around with things at home or to envision something in 3D for kicks.

It is all browser driven and fairly responsive.

Try it out!

Dragonfly is interesting to mess around with.

Who needs BIM? – har har

From the site:

All Designers Welcome
No prior knowledge of computer aided design is required to join in on the fun.  The simple-to-use interface and intuitive design allows you to easily drag and drop items into floor plans that you’ve created. When you’re done, save it and show friends your masterpiece.

Visualize Changes to Your Living Space
Easily modify structural elements like walls, doors, and windows in a click. Move walls, add or remove doors, windows, openings — and even entire rooms — in real time. Then visualize your design using the 3D viewing capabilities to better understand how changes affect your space.

Start with an Existing Design from the Gallery
Jumpstart your remodel by using one of our furnished sample designs, or you can select from one of the many that others have saved in the gallery. Just open it up for editing, make your changes, and save it. It’s that easy!

Start Your Design from Scratch
Use our sample room shapes to quickly lay out your floor plan. Simply drag and drop additional rooms, closets, walls, doors, windows, openings, and other items from our Build catalog into your floor plan to rapidly create your design. Project Dragonfly makes it easy to match your existing space or create your dream home.

Add Furniture and Plan Your Space
Plan your space with furniture selections from our Furnish & Decorate catalog. Choose from a variety of generic furniture options by dragging and dropping items into your floor plan. This feature allows you to experiment with furnishing choices and layout options.
