Re: Planix Home Designer 3D .hom files

Dave,

 

Ideally, if you install Planix on your Windows 7 computer, you have the most flexibility in what you can do (view/edit, print, or convert to .dxf - AutoCAD format). 

 

This will require a copy of Planix (eBay, Amazon) to install and setting up Windows 7 to support Windows XP mode. (If you have a Windows XP or Windows 95 computer, you can install Planix on it instead.)

  

 

 

Link on installing Planix under Windows 7:

Link to Planix on eBay:

 

 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/AUTODESK-Planix-COMPLETE-HOME-SUITE-3D-DELUXE-store-2011-/281279505120

 

 

 

 

 

If you email me some files, I can convert them to .pdf format (which you can view/print) or to .dxf format (which you can read in AutoCAD), and email you back the converted files. That way you can check if the converted files will work for you before you go to the expense and effort of setting up Planix on your Windows 7 computer.

Mindy, 

 

How many files do need converted to .dxf ? If you email me the files I can convert them for you.

 

Alternatively you can try installing Planix on Windows 7, however this will take some effort and time and may not work. See the link below.

I have an old file from 1999 in .hom format generated on the Planix software.  Any chance you could convert it for me to PDF?

 

I attached the file to this Message, but had to change the extension to .pdf to make it work.  You will have to convert the extension back to .hom to convert.

Find attached to this message 3 files:

 

1. Basement.pdf - This is Basement.hom converted to a Legal size PDF file, at 1 inch to 8 feet (1:96 scale).

2. Basement.tif - This is Basement.hom converted to a 300dpi TIFF image file scaled at 1:96 scale.

3. Basement.dxf - This is Basement.hom converted to Autocad DXF format. 

 

These files should give you the maximum flexibility in what you can do.
