The Value of a 3D Site Plan
Designing and building homes is all about vision. To close a sale with a client, you have to be able to communicate your vision for the property. Otherwise, it’s left up to the client’s imagination — and you don’t know how visionary your client actually is. That’s why 3D site plans are so important.
The days of sitting down to draft a site plan manually are over. Now, you can use an online site planner tool to do in minutes what used to take days. Read on to learn more about site plans, site plan creators and more.

How to Create Professional 3D Site Plans
1. Outline Property Boundaries
2. Set Dimensions
3. Apply Surface Coverings
With the boundaries of the site drawn and the dimensions confirmed, it’s time to add surface coverings. These are the materials you will use to signal what is grass, what is garden, what is paved, the types of trees and more. Cedreo provides a large library of surface covering types among more than 3,500 products. Choose your surface covering and draw the area in which it will sit. The drawing process here is much like the process for drawing the walls of your floor plan. Draw continuously and click to create a corner or angle.
Include as many details as possible in this step. Consider all of the surfaces that will require different coverings, such as driveways, grassy areas, gardens, patios, sun decks, areas surrounding swimming pools and tree-covered areas. Choose a surface material for each item that best matches your understanding of the client’s vision for the project.
4. Add 3D Objects
5. Generate Renderings
