Upgrade to SoftPlan version 2020 now, with live annotated drawings to making designing, estimating and presentations to clients faster and easier.
You already know that SoftPlan is the easiest way to produce house plans and material lists.
Now with SoftPlan2020 it is even easier and faster with items like:

  • Dimensions, Extensions, Notes, Symbols, and other details can be added to live Elevations, Cross Sections, and Interior Elevations in the new Annotated mode. Up-to-date detailed drawings / images that can be directly added to Plan Sets for printing.

  • This version adds a Google Maps Site Data command that imports 3D terrain from Google Earth directly into the Site in SoftPlan.
  • SoftPlan version 2020 offers the ability to generate 360° photos within the 3D model and publish them for placement on a Facebook page, website or direct link.
  • This version includes the option to import PDF drawings as shapes. This allows for the quick editing of items obtained from external sources such as surveys and details.
  • Dimensions can be input directly from Leica DISTO measuring devices.
  • The new Keynote function creates the ability to represent a note with a number and then reference that number in an automatically generated Keynote Schedule.
  • Drawing Options capabilities have been expanded to allow all Drawing Options for all drawings in a project to be controlled at the Project level. This means that changes to configurations, such as note font and size, automatically carry through all SoftPlan drawings in the project.
  • Sight Line Study command added to 3D mode displays what a person would see while standing at a specified point in the house.
  • For those that need to take SoftPlan 3D images even further, models can be exported to Lumion, a dedicated 3D rendering program capable of manipulating textures and lighting.
  • 3D Printing SoftPlan version 2020 can export 3D model files for 3D printing programs.

Local content includes additional symbols, title blocks, new material reports with GST, new walls, and changes to system configuration.
