These drawings were created using SoftPlan’s 3D module. Once the 3D
mode has been displayed by simply moving the mouse you control the angle of view, or by using the positioning
control panel the position around the building is controlled by a camera and a target. Simply place the camera,
with the mouse, where you wish to view from and set the target at the place you want to look at. The other control
sets your height above or below the house. SoftPlan will take it from there.
A great number of different images may be created by eliminating
elements from the building.
Every element can be turned on / off and have a selected colour or
For instance you may wish to remove the roof from the building and
view from high above, this image would then appear as a 3D floor plan with depth and perspective.
Images can be generated in different modes, Wire Frame, Visible Line,
Shaded, Sketched, Illustrated, Watercolour, Textured and Full Rendered Texture with multiple light
sources, reflections, shadows and transparency.
A large library of textures is provided, this library can be
added to by simply importing picture files. Textures can be scanned or obtained from the Internet and added to
the already extensive library.
Background images, bitmaps, can be in the form of scanned photos or
images from digital cameras. A picture of the intending building site can be displayed as a background and the
building drawn in SoftPlan positioned in front of it. Letting the customer view their new home before it is
Complete landscaping images can be produced showing developed vegetation.
3D images can be generated in a matter of minutes with selected
textures to any surface. 3D can be used as a tremendous marketing and sales tool. It allows you to convey your
designs to your customer quickly and clearly. 3D images no longer need take 2 or 3 days to create. They are more of
a by-product of the required drawings.
3D Images created in SoftView can be saved as an image file and used
for bill board or magazine advertising, 3D images can also be exported as
SoftPlan reView files allowing rotation and viewing from any angle, inside and out.
