Ask DN: I need to create a layout of a house / groundplan

over 5 years ago from

Do you have any experience with creating a groundplan for a house? I found some tools like RoomSketcher (www.roomsketcher.de), Floorplaner (www.floorplanner.com) or Sketchup (www.sketchup.com) which looks more adavanced, like a 3D rendering program.

I need to make more than 15 different plans and they should have a nice look, so not to technical.

I'm not sure if it is a good idea using Illustrator for this job? Do you have any good advise for me?

Thanks in advance!

    I've done some floor plans in illustrator. I just converted inches to pixels when creating my layout. You can also grab an architects handwriting for a typeface to fake the look.

    I'm sure some of the tools listed work better for specific things, but I really just needed to show my contractor what i was thinking for layout.
