Vip3D, Pool Studio, VizTerra: Top 19 New Features from 2015 [Video]

As we look forward to 2016, and wrap up a year in which we released some pretty big updates, we decided to check in with thousands of our Vip3D, Pool Studio, and VizTerra members to get a feel for what our users liked best — and what they want to see in the next year!

The results are in: Vip3D, our redesigned take on 3D outdoor living design software, tops the list as one of the most exciting updates we’ve ever released. It’s fantastic to see the awesome projects designers are creating with Vip3D’s new tools and features. (If you haven’t checked it out yet — take a look!)
