Arcon Evo & 3D Architect Home Design SoftwareArcon Evo & 3D Architect Home Design Software



From small to large scale building projects, Arcon Evo & 3D Architect software are powerful design and communication tools for those wanting to design a self-build, extension, conversion or re-modelling project


2D to 3D CAD software specially developed to provide architects, self-builders, developers, building professionals, home improvers, renovators, builders & interior designers with a one-stop solution for producing detailed floor plans, automated elevations, working drawings & 3D models


The simplicity and speed with which floor plans can be created has made Arcon software one of the leading 2D & 3D home design applications for planning and visualising small & large scale building projects. Since 2001 and following many years of experience in bringing 2D & 3D CAD software to market, we have been able to identify our main user groups and therefore tailor our range to suit specific requirements and budget. Since 2001, our software has attracted many user groups from the UK and throughout the world and in more recent years, it has been associated with TV brands such as the popular Channel 4 'Grand Designs' and demonstrated at major self-build and home renovating events.




Whether you have used 3D architectural home design software before or completely new to it, our latest range of cost effective products are suitable for all levels of experience, quick to learn and will enable you to draw detailed floor plans easily. After drawing out your design ideas in a traditional 2D plan display let the software automatically create the 3D model, elevations and cross-section views of your building. In an interactive 3D environment, furnish your design from a large library of objects, textures, materials and lighting effects to create a true impression of how your finished project will look and feel. Panoramic views and 3D walkthroughs on screen ensure that ideas can be clearly communicated to anyone involved in your project.

What our customers are saying

"In our option study of the CAD packages, we discovered that some were very expensive, and others were simply too basic. Of the remaining packages, the only package that met all of our requirements was 3D Architect Home Designer Pro. 3D Architect Home Designer Pro lived up to it's promise, and we created the drawings we needed for our planning application. We used 3D Architect Home Designer Pro, which allowed us to build our complex model and, with help from Tim and Julian at Eleco Software Ltd, the merging of our complex roof shapes." - Peter Romanik

"It’s CAD Jim but not as we know it’, well certainly not in my previous experience. I had been working with my previous software for a number of years until my recent purchase of a dedicated building CAD programme, 3D Architect Home Designer Expert. The difference is immense. Where I previously used a sort of ‘architectural word processor’, I now had access to real precision. My previous programme’s 3D views were unusable, Home Designer Expert’s intuitive and genuinely useful, providing an instant switch between recognisable elevation to plan view. My experience with the company was further embellished by the invaluable and prompt support from Tim. Not only is the software excellent, the customer service is superlative" - Michael Purdy



"I have been using various house CAD packages since 2002 (Floorplan, Punch, Chief Architect - tried them all, and bought 4x versions of Arcon) and can honestly say Arcon Evo is head and shoulders above the rest" - Peter Hodgson, Arcon customer since 2005

"Just to say many thanks for the additional guidance, I managed to follow all the steps ok and we have been able to discuss as a family the current working draft which has been really helpful. I will make a new draft with changes we all discussed and hope to use more of the software capabilities" - Andy Nash
