SoftPlan Home Design Software
SoftPlan was formed to automate the process of home design and decades later, still remains the industry’s
leading residential CAD package.
SoftPlan allows you to create construction documents with absolute accuracy in a fraction of
the time you could do so by hand. And since drawings are easily customized with fully editable objects,
switching to SoftPlan will not change the signature look of your plans or interrupt your current
Easy to Learn
SoftPlan’s learning curve is the absolute shortest in the industry. With other CAD programs you draw lines to
represent a wall. With SoftPlan you draw a wall because you’re building a wall. SoftPlan’s smart objects are
designed to echo their real world equivalents. When a window is drawn, the shutters, trim, header, and jack studs
are automatically added and the rough opening is framed with correct dimensions.
As you’re adding all of this information to your floor plans, SoftPlan is assembling a highly detailed digital
model. This “BIM” model is used to automatically create floor plans, elevations, cross sections, roof plans,
framing diagrams, electrical plans, site plans, detail drawings and more with just the click of a button.
Sell More Homes
SoftPlan allows you to work smarter, not harder, to sell more homes. In today’s competitive building industry,
professional 3D renderings are indispensable design and sales tools. Bring your 3D to life using SoftPlan’s
advanced shadows, reflections, sun studies, and photorealistic graphics. SoftPlan allows you to captivate clients
early on in the design process by showing them easy to create stylized renderings.

"There is no way to draw a floor plan any faster than with SoftPlan. Even if
all you work with are floor plans, SoftPlan is for you. My revisions are a snap. I design a wide
variety of homes - simple to very complex with all types of foundations. SoftPlan is perfect for what I
do because it is specifically programmed to design and detail residential homes."
