Pros: Very intuitive.

Cons: Not very easy to use for small commercial.

Overall: Very easy to use 2D. 3D is somewhat difficult. Customer support is not good. Overall very happy with the software.

I am a registered architect practicing for last 30 years in large and small offices. I now own my own office and use SoftPLAN.

Recommendations to other buyers: Customer support is lacking.

SoftPlan is easy to use, scales well, and is feature rich. Our most highly recommended application.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Overall: Able to completely create house building plans ready to submit to City.

Pros: For professionals this software is really helpful. Designing and drawing can be done smoothly and there isn't much lag problem either

Cons: It had a lot of complexities to turn into PDF . Design a 3D project is very difficult for beginners like me . Updates should be a bit cheaper

Great tool to design commercial and residential projects

Comments: Fast, smart and easy to use, the only snag is that demo version does not allow you the real feel like Archicad!
