MySketch®

MySketch® is a super easy and free web-based floor planner to document and visualize real construction projects. It is used to easily create technical drawings for kitchens, houses, garden, apartments, garages and many more, but also more specific things such as seating-, escape- and venue-plans.

It is different from other flash-based internet tools out there because it has features that also satisfy professional use such as 3D walkthrough, facade drawings, social communication, process documentation etc.

Mission

We founded MySketch because we all had major problems when we had our houses built, renovated our apartments and decorating our homes. There were no tools that solved our problems we experienced such as overblown budget and broken timeframes but also just simple things as placing tiles with our own patterns or calculating how much materials one need to buy. The home construction business is huge all over the world and there are so much information scattered everywhere on the internet on how to do it the best way, so we figure it would be better to collect the collaborative knowledge right into the source of all these projects making social technical drawings. We want to help leverage the knowledge out there to create better designs you never thought was even possible. We get inspiration from creative social building tools such as Sims and Minecraft.
