We believe that 3D technology should be more than just another way to create 2D plans.
Clients don’t understand 2D drawings. Consultants & Contractors need to decipher 2D drawings, causing wasted time & error.
End the communication disconnect via a Virtual Design & Construct 3D BIM model!
PlusSpec for Design & Drafting
The 3D model is used for more than just creating images or presentations. It is a central repository housing all of the information (products, details, etc) for all stakeholders.
GOD IS IN THE DETAILS
More than just 3D. More than just BIM.
PlusSpec is COMMUNICATION.
PlusSpec is Virtual Design & Construction and automatically generates customizable structure, so you can create AMAZING 3D details (and traditional 2D details).
Consider details from the start (not as an afterthought), without slowing down the design process. And then communicate details like never before.
The problem with all other Parametric 3D BIM software is that they are simply super-charged Drafting boards (and can struggle with custom shapes).
They are also not focused around ‘design’.
That’s why PlusSpec is inside of SketchUp.
The best of parametric BIM tools (PlusSpec) and 3D sketching tools (SketchUp) = The Ultimate Design Tool!
FROM THE SIMPLE TO THE COMPLEX
Start with Conceptual Massing and progress into a Detail Design. No other software is this flexible.
It doesn’t matter where you live in the world, what building methods you use, or what style/vernacular you use. PlusSpec has been made to suit all regions & building styles.
Although made specifically for Residential (single and multi-family construction) & Interiors, it is also brilliant for commercial work, such as fit-outs, apartments, etc.
2D DRAWINGS: BRINGING BACK THE LOVE
Create professional 2D drawings for client presentations, council/permit approval and CD’s (in B&W or color).
When your model changes, so does your 2D drawings! This allows you to concentrate on designing, not modeling or drafting.
THE ULTIMATE COMMUNICATION TOOL
Customers don’t understand 2D drawings. Immerse them in 3D and win more work!
End the communication disconnect between your team, consultants and contractor by communicating within the 3D model via a Virtual Tag tool.
Another computer aided drafting board! It is the essence of communication.
* 2D Drawings are created with SketchUp Layout. SketchUp Pro required.
MANAGE CLIENT BUDGETS
Everything that you draw is automatically quantified, and allows you to generate one-click feasibility studies and estimates.
As your design changes, your Cost Estimate is updated automatically so that you can easily manage project costs at all stages.
We’re not saying that you would share this information, but waiting for an official estimate often leads to rework & wasted time. Nobody likes having a shelf filled with unbuilt projects!!
