Softplan once again proves why it's still one of the most popular architectural CAD programs among builders with its latest release, Version 13.
One of the high points on a list of more than 400 improvements is a “Building Options” feature that lets builders show customers a 3-D model of how different options look.
Builders can show up to 100 options for each drawing. So if a customer wanted a deck, the builder could show the customer how the deck would look against the back of the house with dozens of different window styles.
“It's great for showing any kind of special feature,” says Gerald Gardner, a SoftPlan sales consultant. “Builders can use it to show chandeliers, electrical systems, bonus rooms, or even all the fiber optics for a digital home.”
