Trace your plan. Get an automatic estimate from it. That’s the deal. Other take-off software tools may help you measure the drawing and count items on the building plan, but you still have to cost them. Seems a poor use of your valuable time to us. With our software you trace the drawings, making your choice of building method and materials as you go. Then with the plan traced, EstimatorXpress will work out the quantities of all the materials, labour and plant you need, and calculate the total cost. The end.
