  17. Hello, Thank you for the question. The Room Planner app was discontinued a couple of years ago and is no longer available for purchase. We do have a mobile app for viewing plans called the Chief Architect 3D Viewer. This app allows you to explore the model in 3D, but you can't edit the plan (add walls, change colors, etc.). The 3D Viewer app is compatible with mobile devices. I see you already own Home Designer Pro. If you need a lower cost program for the field, other users or for your customers where they can design and edit plans, you can consider something like our Home Designer Suite or Architectural. Please feel free to contact us in sales if you have any questions. You can reach us at 208-292-3400 or email sales@chiefarchitect.com. Kind regards, Derek Pedersen Chief Architect Software
  18. Tune in for our webinar presentations and Live Q&A sessions, each Thursday at 12:00 PST. We will be working through a full home design project, catch up on past sessions via our blog and download the sample plan to explore the design. Join us to see the process unfold with tips and tricks, and get sneak previews of what is coming in X14! Sign Up
