SoftPlan is a true
"Picture-torial Estimating System" instead of using a tabular input system where
numbers are displayed like a spread sheet. SoftPlan uses a drawing to create a Detailed Estimate of materials including labour and waste. This method is far
advanced, as they say "a picture is worth a thousand words", in this case all the materials calculated from the
mode will generate a footprint of the building on the site. Enter spot heights and
SoftPlan will generate contour lines. Services like power, telephone, water etc can be indicated along with
contours and building setbacks. For those that require Town Planning type documents the neighbourhood feature
provides an easy method to produce street scapes, shadow diagrams and layouts for multiple dwelling site

crowd. Like Printer / Plotter pen or line styles.
