Think drawing plans is beyond you? Tried other plans software or CAD systems and thought they were complicated? Well PlansXpress has been specifically design with builders and developers in mind. You'll unearth drawing skills you never knew you had, and no need for training.
We think you’ll be impressed with the architect quality drawings you can produce yourself. With the construction standard detailing your plans will be suitable for planning application submissions and building control. And with automatic 3D models and photo-realistic renders of your plans with your planning application, you’ll sail through the planning process. (*3D PhotoVisualiser optional extra).
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 (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 then import the drawing into EstimatorXpress and it will price it automatically down to the last screw.
PlansXpress has built-in building knowledge and draws the detail and hatching you’d expect on your building plans automatically. Plus as you draw your building PlansXpress automatically creates a 3D model simultaneously! 3D models and photo-realistic renders* can be achieved in seconds with the 3D PhotoVisualiser optional extra.
As you draw your plans, a 3D model automatically builds on screen. Plus create automatic 2D elevations almost instantly from your plan.
Get ahead of the competition with architect quality plans, elevations and 3D models from PlansXpress. Plus knock the socks off your competitors with photorealistic rendering using the 3D PhotoVisualiser plug-in (optional extra). Research shows that clients often find there is very little to choose from one builder to the next when choosing the right company for their building project. Providing plans and 3D models will set you apart.
