Sketch your dream house easily in live 3D, then just copy and paste to add real 3D furniture, finishes, doors, windows, and even lighting.  Perfect for 3D design, rendering, and walkthroughs from simple remodelings to kitchen design and additions, all the way up to extensive new home design projects — DesignWorkshop Classic provides a complete 3D design package at the same low price as the much more limited "3D home architect" programs.  That's because DesignWorkshop Classic Home Design features the same fast, easy, and powerful live 3D modeling and rendering tools found in our award-winning software for professional architects.

Get your complete DesignWorkshop Classic Home Design package today for just $99.95 with easy, secure online ordering, and you'll have powerful 3D home design at your finger tips whenever you need it.  You'll get the popular DesignWorkshop Classic complete package at our unbeatable price, including the complete DesignWorkshop User Guide and Tutorials in our convenient custom binder, and the dual platform CD-ROM hundreds of 3D home design objects and furnishings, design examples, and useful bonus accessories - more than 250MB of good stuff - for easily completing your most ambitious home design projects.  Fully dual-platform for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000 and Macintosh Classic.

Visualize your creative design ideas.

With DesignWorkshop, you can actually design and build live in three dimensions, and then view, print, and export plans and elevations.  Or, you can start with simple outlines in 2D and then pop them up into real 3D -- just choose the approach most comfortable to you! DesignWorkshop allows you to quickly and creatively sketch spatial ideas in true live 3D perspective.  From there, it is easy to develop and refine your creations efficiently, with simple but powerful and accurate editing tools.  Your design visions can spring to life almost instantly, using real-time rendering with lights and textures built in.

The DesignWorkshop interface provides the first real design tool for creating your dream house by drawing directly in a live 3D space, using our patented 3D user interface technology.  Traditional drafting software only works in two dimensions, like pencil and paper.  Most so-called "3D applications" are really just souped-up drafting software, with little or no editing available in the perspective view.  The other 3D solid modeling systems available are expensive, slow to learn, and complicated to use.

At $499.00, MacWorld calls DesignWorkshop Pro "an excellent, lower-priced alternative to high-end architectural design packages." And DesignWorkshop Classic is available now for only $99.95! A leading computer magazine calls DesignWorkshop "the most direct 3D interface short of a dataglove".  No other 3D home architecture software can compare.  Noted graphics forum leader David Stovall says DesignWorkshop "is the closest thing to intuitive design out there." And more than 500,000 real users around the world show they agree with these expert endorsements.

Unlimited upgradability!

DesignWorkshop Classic supports big home design projects, with Save capabilities for up to 1000 solid objects (up to 100 rooms, or more than 10,000 polygons), plus a VRML 2.0 export function (for 3D web publishing) usually only found in professional-level 3D design Software.  And, DesignWorkshop Classic includes a full year of free technical support, so our expert support staff can help you from start to finish as you turn your dreams into real 3D.  But if you find out you need even more, you can upgrade in moments to DesignWorkshop Professional, the professional 3D sketch modeling market leader from Artifice, Inc., used by thousands of architects and professional designers.

Professionals creating built-environment designs, models and images, including architects, interior designers, landscape architects, and exhibit and production designers, will thrive on the fast, easy and creative visualization of DesignWorkshop Professional, with unlimited modeling size, advanced rendering, and more powerful import/export functions.  It's available to buy now at the Artifice CAD Store for both Windows 95/98/2000/NT/ME and Macintosh Classic for just $479.00.

DesignWorkshop Lite is a 3D design starter program with the elegance of the DesignWorkshop live 3D interface, at a breakthrough price.  It's got plenty of power for simple remodeling and shop projects, or for some serious try-before-you-buy tire-kicking.  You can download DesignWorkshop Lite now free over the Internet, or use our simple online order form to request your own copy of the amazing dual platform DesignWorkshop Lite CD-ROM, more than 100MB of DesignWorkshop Lite and great 3D design accessories available to buy now for just $19.95 plus shipping and handling.
