Thirty years after SoftPlan home design software was created to automate the process of house design, it remains the industry’s leading residential CAD package.
SoftPlan home design software allows you to create construction documents with absolute accuracy in a fraction of the time you could do it by hand. And since drawings are easily customized with fully editable objects, switching to SoftPlan will not change the signature look of your home plans or interrupt your current workload.
Professionals in the building industry purchase SoftPlan because they are looking for a better way to design houses. SoftPlan delivers the most complete CAD package available by offering:
- the shortest learning curve in the industry
- drawing terms and objects familiar to building professionals
- logical interface and order of operations
- thousands of commands for quick and easy design and customization
- BIM automation of construction documents, 3D renderings, materials lists & cost estimate reports
- easy to reach customer support
As you draw, SoftPlan’s automation enhances productivity and ensures that nothing is left out of the plan. Everything from wall panel diagrams to floor and roof framing are generated with a click of the mouse.
While automation saves time, SoftPlan provides extensive customization tools to make any detailed modification you require. Whether it’s adding symbols, creating a specialized wall type, automatically adding a roof, or creating a completely custom one, SoftPlan provides the ability to achieve any regional design.
SoftPlan’s integration capabilities allow all drawings to be imported and exported via AutoCAD’s DWG format.
SoftPlan web3d models can be viewed and navigated on PC, phone, or tablet. This feature allows you to publish 3D models directly to the web to be viewed by anyone you wish. Once published, we create a link to your web3d page which we host on our site. Anyone you share this link with can view and explore your project without needing to download and install any additional software.

Exclusive to SoftPlan subscribers and SoftPlan+ subscribers.
When you design a floor plan, SoftPlan models what you draw and automatically creates elevations, sections, framing diagrams, cost estimate reports and the materials list.
Whether you want to generate instant sections and elevations, or benefit from automatic framing, opening, and electrical schedules, SoftPlan allows you to create construction documents with absolute accuracy in a fraction of the time you could do so by hand or with traditional CAD software.

"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."

"I am in search of a great home/architectural program for designing products for my company and my customers for visual effect, estimating, and plans. I must say your product has been the best of the bunch from the little time I was allowed to try it out in the demo – it had a really smooth feel to it and the basic learning curve was a lot more comfortable and user-friendly for me compared to the others I demo'd. It's nice to see a program that makes sense to a person off the start. I really enjoy the fact that the window boxes pop up so you can easily edit everything and go through all the options (ex. roof designs and framing) and it shows it can really be put in the hands of more than just architects and draftsmen. I would really like to buy your product in the near future because I know it would be a great asset to me and my company. I really think you guys have something amazing and will be looking forward to purchasing."
