Introductory Training DVD

As the first in the series, the Introductory Training DVD is designed for everyone, although general computer experience is helpful. The DVD covers the steps necessary to complete a simple house from design phase through completion of floor plans, elevations, and cross sections. An introduction to roof generation, object offsets, basic site plan input, and 3D rendering are also included in the content. At completion, users will be familiar enough with SoftPlan drawing techniques to confidently begin drawing on their own.

The Introductory Training DVD is now authored in SoftPlan 2014.

Intermediate Training DVD

The Intermediate Training DVD is best suited for those who are comfortable with the basics of SoftPlan covered on the Introductory DVD. The Intermediate level emphasizes how to efficiently lay out floor plans for a set of construction drawings through instruction on proper drawing order, object offsets, and customization of walls and openings. Then the focus shifts to SoftView's interaction with the floor plan through elevations, cross sections, and the generation of a 3D model. The DVD is rounded out by covering complex roof designs and generating a site plan.
