Our client's project requirement is simple and straight.
Please check the Autodesk's Homestyler. It has a 2D | 3D button on the menu.

We need to provide a similar web-based 2 panel interface and look-n-feel by customising SweetHome3D a java opensource.
In 2D mode the objects, windows and doors are movable and rotatable.
In 3D mode nothing is movable and rotatable.
If you notice its the same case in SweetHome3D also:)
Only thing is that 2D and 3D are displayed in two separate panels in SweetHome3D.
Instead it would be better to switch between 2D and 3D just like in Homestyler. That will help utilise full window space and give better usability.
Also suggest how to auto install java runtime into user machine if in case its not there already in his machine. Because it would be hard to make the user to stay on the website if we ask him to install a software before show him something.
Please give your time and cost estimates.
Awaiting your reply.
