Works as Expected
Kommentare: Very good overall experience. Softplan is essential to our home building company. It allows a single person to generate residential construction documents for 65 houses per year.
Vorteile: You get a no nonsense residential drafting software. Very easy to get started, but still packed with features. We have been using it for 5plus years are still finding new features to use. Overall, the most essential feature is the Softlist takeoff module.
Nachteile: The only issue I have is with customer support. You can get support, but it is through a clunky interface. There is not a way to speak to a rep at Softplan as far as I can tell.

Best residential software available
Kommentare: I switched to Softplan in the late 80's and rarely use any other software unless needed.
Vorteile: The biggest thing currently is designing in 2-d and 3-d at the same time.
Nachteile: True .dwg and .dwf drawing compatibility and cross platform functionality is a little difficult at times.

SoftPlan is easy to use, scales well, and is feature rich. Our most highly recommended application.
Vorteile: Designing for residential and light commercial projects has become intuitive and accessible with SoftPlan. It helps us present data-rich designs quickly and efficiently, without any concerns.
Nachteile: At first we wondered if SoftPlan was right for us but after a brief training period, we soon realized it would give us significant benefits. Once we absorbed it fully, it worked very well for us.

I've used this product for years designing homes and remodels. Once learned can do plans fast.
Kommentare: Able to completely create house building plans ready to submit to City.
Vorteile: Can make floorplans quickly. Easy to copy one plan's notes to the next. Software runs fast on a basic desktop computer. Clients like to see basic layouts when I submit bids. Don't have to upgrade constantly if you're happy with the features in the version you purchased and no yearly fees. Easy to paint and add texture to elevations or 3d. SqFt calcs easy, and material lists available once plan is done.
Nachteile: Older versions (13) don't have easy was to convert to PDF, way too many steps to get to a PDF. Upgrade prices are very high for a small contractor. Complex roofs can be hard to draw unless you do it full time or have lots of experience drawing roofs. Scaled Plot Plans can be hard to create correctly unless you do it often.

Vorteile: Very good program for making plans and designs. Our company is engaged in designing interiors and this program helps a lot with it.
Nachteile: Of the minuses I want to note, although this is even more likely not a minus, but a wish. I would like to see in the future more ready plans for country houses.
