Planner 5D is a utility that comes in handy to both professional and amateur interior designers who wish to easily create house plans from their PCs. This application comes as an alternative to using expensive CAD programs that feature overwhelming interfaces with multitudes of functions.
The graphic tool can be downloaded only from the Microsoft Store app. Once you install the utility on your PC, you can check the 4 demo projects or start designing your own house plan. You can undo as many project alterations as you like, toggle between 2D and 3D modes, zoom in or out the house plan, and so much more.
A good thing is that if you don't want to install the program on your computer because of a certain reason, you can always try the web browser version of the app. It provides you with similar features and is equally intuitive.
A disadvantage is that not all graphic content is available for free. The program gives you access to a limited amount of items (furniture, floor or window models) to use in your projects. You need to make an in-app purchase to unlock all content. You also have to pay in order to take an unlimited amount of HD snapshots.
In my opinion, you should first try the web browser version of the application before downloading and installing Planner 5D on your PC. This way, you will know exactly if it's worth getting the program on your computer and use it to create your interior designs.
