PlusSpec for Design & Drafting - PlusSpec

Why PlusSpec?

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!

MODIFICATIONS ARE EASY

Never redraw anything again! Design changes or options are a breeze.

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.
  • 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.

DESIGN FREEDOM

  • 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.
  • PlusSpec is more than just 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!

Draw with actual building products

Intelligent, 3D parametric tools that allow you to design faster and smarter, and communicate in a way that everyone understands.

WALLS

You don’t just draw lines or shapes with PlusSpec. With PlusSpec, you draw with Virtual Building tools.

Just select or build the wall that you want to use from the menu, and BAM! Everything will be drawn for you – including structure.

Our wall tool is parametric, which means that modifications are a breeze!

INTERACTIVE DESIGN

Use the PlusSpec Push/Pull Tool to move your walls with the speed of lightning.

Design iterations or changes have never been this easy. Walls are connected, so if you move one wall, the others update with it.

Automatically generate roofs and floors from walls and save yourself bucketloads of time (not to mention, reducing error)!

WINDOWS & DOORS

Add windows and doors to a wall with the click of a button.

PlusSpec windows and doors are actually cut into the wall & automatically update the wall structure.

If you delete a window or door, the cut in the wall is removed also. And, if you move a wall, all of the doors & windows move with it.

Create any kind of window and door, including curtain walls!

 

ROOFS

Drawing roofs are hard. PlusSpec makes them a piece of cake.

Draw Pitched roofs, Shed/Skillion Roofs or Flat Roofs in a matter of seconds.

Our Roof tool is parametric, which means that modifications are a breeze.

This tool will save you hours!

SLABS, JOISTS & DECKING

Empty lines and empty shapes that represent structure lead to design error.

With the PlusSpec Floor tool, you will be able to accurately build complex floor types, and get it right.

Our Floor tool is parametric, which means that modifications are a breeze!

Import PDFs or Sketches

Introducing the most powerful PDF importer for both PC and Mac.

Import your plans or hand sketches with ease and trace over them to bring your plans to life with 3D.

If you’re a SketchUp User & use a PC, this will blow your mind!

(It will still blow your mind if you’re a Mac user)
