This program makes the novice look professional. At this writing, I was only slightly familiar with this program. But in using it more I began thoroughly enjoying the process of developing my skills for layout.
One hint though: Do not try doing your own dimensions. Specifically, using your mouse to draw the lines. At least not until you know your way around the intricate workings of this program.
I have personally tried this route and found it was not worth my time at present. However as I gain knowledge of the program and am more comfortable with it that may be something to aim for later. Just not now.
From my own experience, it seems to be a breeze to simply use the templates supplied by the program and re-size what needs to be re-sized.
Honestly it had been awhile since I had gotten the program out. I started and stopped, and then started again. Sound familiar? So it was a pleasant surprise to view my last attempt at designing with it.
I was so surprised in fact that it looked as good as it did. At first I thought to myself, "who drew that layout?" because I actually liked it. Yes we are our own biggest critic. Right?
But as I remembered what I had accomplished in that last session I was amazed at how good it looked. And that it was mine!
It is so exciting learning new skills of any kind, but even better if they are readily applicable to your miniatures hobby.
Can you imagine starting truly from scratch and making your own mini bedrooms, living room, kitchen, laundry room, garage, bathroom, office, family room and whatever else you desire.
Perhaps just one tiny suggestion: make blocks and do each room as a separate project. Always remember to incorporate the fitting of these rooms together as one solid unit in the end.
It may help to read these instructions as well. How to Build a Dolls House. Once again as you see how someone else went about their miniature design, it gives you insights as to how you can accomplish this on your own. Every little bit helps.
Just imagine this route though... no limits as to what and how you have to deal with someone else's design. You have full rule of your tiny empire. Enjoy.
