HomeByMe is an online 3D space planning service developed by Dassault Systèmes SE, and powered by Cheerp
Market-leading software for home planning, HomeByMe is an online-only 3D home planning service developed by Dassault Systèmes SE, Europe’s second-largest software development company and among the Fortune 50 list of the largest software companies in the World. Dassault Systèmes develops software for systems engineering, 3D product design, simulation, manufacturing and more.
HomeByMe allows users to design, visualise and review home and furniture layouts, using intuitive 3D views to allow consumers to easily create detailed floor plans, test various furniture, play with thousands of decoration elements, as well as experience a virtual immersion into their home. HomeByMe is enjoyed by users worldwide, who have shared over 1.5 million floor plans and interior design ideas with home builders, kitchen retailers, architects, friends and family.
Other solutions, such as Emscripten, were explored initially, but only Cheerp and Leaning Technologies provided the right combination of technical features and WebAssembly expertise to assist with the large-scale project of converting HomeByMe.
The performance and size of the converted code have always been impressive, but since the introduction of WebAssembly, Cheerp has further dramatically improved the runtime speed, and drastically reduced the compiled size, allowing Dassault Systemes to save on bandwidth and resources, as well as to extend their customer base.
Since 2017, HomeByMe has only been delivered as a Web Application, and its native build targets have been retired.
