    I'm moving into a new apartment in Mid-August, and I was wondering if there are any apps that allow you to design an apartment space layout, as in placing furniture, etc. Kind of like a blueprint program. I'd like to be able to key in the dimensions of the rooms and then create scale markers for sofas, beds, and the like, and play around with the layouts.

    Does anything like this exist? I mean, short of CAD?

    Thanks.

    I'd also love to use an app like this. Surely someone knows of something out there.

    Try Google SketchUp. http://sketchup.com/?sid=368

    It's free, fun, 3D and simple to use.

    Oops, don't know if the free version is available yet for Macs. They're working on it. If not you can download a trial of the Pro app and use it for 8 hours.

    Wow. It's like I have a svengali-like hold over Google. Sketchup is exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks!
