SkillsUSA: Student Using SoftPlan Wins Again
SoftPlan is proud to announce that Michael Kuntz was this year's Gold Medalist in the National SkillsUSA
competition for Architectural Drafting in Kansas City, MO. Michael is a student of Shadow Ridge High School’s
Signature Architecture Program in Surprise, AZ. Michael's instructor is architecture teacher and author Scott
Thomas, M.Ed., MCCTE, CD.
Students consistently medal in a variety of architectural design competitions using SoftPlan, and we're pleased
to see yet another Gold Medalist win with SoftPlan at the largest and most prominent contest in the United States.
We congratulate Mr. Kuntz and Mr. Thomas.
From middle school to college and beyond, SoftPlan’s powerful design tools are being taught in classrooms across the United States and Canada. SoftPlan makes it easy for teachers to
implement SoftPlan in the classroom by offering a free curriculum, complete with:
• course syllabus

detailed lesson outlines
• rubrics for grading
The practical and straightforward approach of SoftPlan Educational software gives students increased
comprehension and confidence in their design capabilities. Schools that use SoftPlan have found great success at
regional and national architectural drafting competitions like SkillsUSA and Skills Canada.
Students will be able to create professional construction documents including:
• floor plans using fully assembled objects such as walls and windows
• electrical plans
• custom roofs
• cross sections, elevations
• wall, floor, and roof framing diagrams
• site plans based on engineering data
• fully finished renderings with lighting and reflection
• materials lists along with pricing and waste calculations
Without the need to learn complicated software, students can start learning about architectural design on the
first day of class. And since students are building with smart objects like fully assembled walls, they can see how
the building components come together to make a structure. Students will be able to create detailed, professional
construction documents that are sure to impress parents, teachers, and even competition judges.

Using SoftPlan helps increase enrollment in architectural design classes. Students are engaged in class, making

textures like brick and hardwood, and add furniture from SoftPlan’s extensive symbol libraries.
