Combine PlansXpress with EstimatorXpress to cost your plans in minutes. If you have existing building plans from your client you can import a scanned image of the plans into PlansXpress Take-off Edition (or import a DXF or DWG file from the likes of AutoCAD), then quickly trace over the drawing and export it to EstimatorXpress which will price up the plan in no time. Or start your plans from scratch in PlansXpress Total Toolkit or Ultimate then import the drawing into EstimatorXpress and it will price it automatically down to the last screw.
