SoftPlan Cross Sections are completely automated because unlike conventional CAD programs, within
SoftPlan you are drawing your plans using objects, items like walls, windows, doors, roofs, and floor system.
The objects are more than just a series of lines in the plan; rather they are actual drawing items with
width, depth, and height measurements which translate directly to the creation of the cross
Cross sections can be generated from as simple as a room or stair section to cutting through the
entire building envelope. The SoftView Cross Section is a true representation of the plan, and as
changes are made to the floor plan the section will automatically update allowing for a seamless and accurate
Simply add the section lines as needed to the plans. Section lines can be added at angles for
a truer perspective.
Then save the generated section and add detail notes
and dimensions as needed to complete the design. SoftPlan’s flexibility is such that even if major
changes are made the original design simply regenerates the cross section in SoftView. All notes,
symbols, and hatching patterns will be applied to the saved cross section
