Wondering if there is any software to help planning divisions in a specific building (in this case a school/University), their dimensions, objects inside/inventory (such as tables, chairs,...).

Ideally, but not limited to, the following requirements:

  • 3D, but 2D would also do the work. It would be helpful that one could define the location of, let's say, a desk and a chair in a specific division.

  • OpenSource.

  • Ease of use, or relatively low learning curve.

I believe that with the architectural plan of the building I could do this in Blender/Unity/Unreal, but I am looking for something less time consuming.

My recommendation would be to look into Sketchup.


From 100+ EUR/year, free limited web-based version that requires registration.

  • Thanks @JoeWilliamsen. It is way faster to build something in Sketchup, in comparison to Blender. Commented Jul 22, 2022 at 14:13
