3Dream FAQ

General 3Dream Questions

What is 3Dream?

The concept of 3Dream, Dream, Design, Deliver, is to link your design creations to real world items, in a virtual world environment. This allows you to create your client's space, add your design touches, and then sell your project in its entirety with automatic presentation reports and walk-through tours. You will be able to search and select any design decision items such as wall treatments, window treatments, flooring types, furniture, etc, and place these items in your plan by simply dragging the item using your mouse onto your planning area.

I am not very technical or computer savvy, is 3Dream complicated?

No. 3Dream is not complicated, unlike many other drafting & design programs. Its very existence comes from the desire of a very creative but non-technical industry (Interior Design) to have at its disposal a truly amazing design tool that is easy to learn and use. Our main task is letting you be extremely creative while only having to learn a few basic functions. If you browse the internet, or can send an email, you are ready! And with comments and suggestions from users, we will strive to only make it better.

What happens if a certain item I need is not yet on 3Dream?

3Dream was conceived of as a community for interiors professionals. We need feedback on what items you need to work with, which companies you would like to see, and new features & functions you want in order to make this work. Since there are literally millions of products out there, we obviously cannot have every item represented in 3Dream. In the Contact Us link on your Dashboard let us know which products you would like to see. Even send in an image or Vendor name that we can use to create the 3D model. If the product will benefit the community, we will create the items.

I'm worried about internet security, is your site secure?

Yes. 3Dream.net is a secure web site. To ensure you are signing on to a secure site, make sure the web address you are visiting begins with https as 3Dream.net does. The s stands for secure. Any secure site will also have a certificate from VeriSign, Thawte or another certificate authority.

Is 3Dream compatible with an ipad? Which tablets would work best for this presentations?

You can create the 2 and 3D designs on your laptop, and then take various SNAPSHOTS in both 2 and 3D view and save these snapshots to your computer. These snapshots can now be inserted (copy/paste) into things like Powerpoint etc. or just displayed as a photo gallery on your iPad. The iPad does not (yet) have the horsepower needed to work with 3Dream, but can certainly be used for presentation purposes. Another method of presenting your 3D designs is creating the VR 360 images while in 3D view in 3Dream. Send these special VR 360 images via the submit button on the dashboard and we will return a VR 360 link to you for viewing on the iPad or even on your phone. You may also go a step further and view these links on your phone with the optional VR headsets. Very impressive!

Can multiple users or team members use my account?

The user that owns and has been assigned the Subscription ‘Master Account’ can share their login credentials - User name (email) and password. Scheduling use of the account will be necessary as only 1 user can use the account at any given time. When the account is in use and another user logs in – the first user will be logged out. Alternatively, you may wish to consider obtaining Sub-Accounts for additional users. For a fraction of the Master Account fee you can give your team members each a Sub-Account – that have the same full access rights as the Master Account. The Master Account holder pays for the account – and owns the works contained in the Sub-Account(s).
