I'm looking for advice about what tool/app you would use on Fedora
(or any Linux distro) so that one could experiment graphically with
the placement of furniture in a well-defined space.
Here's the real deal. I have a pair of desks, a three-seat
reclining couch, two side tables, a two-drawer horizontal filing
cabinet and a small dining table. These would all go in the
dining/living room. I have a queen-size bed, two side tables, a stand
of drawers and a nice cedar chest. These would go into the bedroom.
I have the dimensions of the dining/living room and the bedroom. I'd
like to do a "what-if" analysis graphically, manually, on arranging
Would you use Open Office Draw? Is there a better app/tool for this?
Is there a template that would help? Perhaps the "dia" app? Perhaps
the answer is staring me in the face and I don't recognize it.
Thanks in advance for the advice/pointers,
Have you tried http://www.sweethome3d.com/
it's free software java
application, I used it once for some basic needs and it was ok for what
I needed it.
