Cedreo Is Easy to Learn & User-Friendly
In contrast to design software like Chief Architect, Cedreo’s design tools are intuitive. The interface is simple enough for beginners, yet filled with features that advanced users will love. Even if you have no architectural design experience, Cedreo lets you progress from creating a simple room to designing an entire house in just hours instead of weeks.

Cedreo Creates Professional-Grade 3D Renderings
Most 3D renderings from architecture software leave a lot to be desired. However, Cedreo’s lifelike 3D renderings show realistic details like textures, reflections, and shadows based on the sun’s position and artificial lighting. And unlike Chief Architect, Cedreo’s cloud-based servers create the renderings so you don’t have to worry about upgrading to a supercomputer to create 3D renderings.
"The 3D renderings that came out from the software were phenomenal!" - Steven R.
