Design a timber frame house model

Detailed dialog options

With more comprehensive options than ever before, Arcon Evo CAD tool uses detailed, illustrated dialogue boxes to guide you through setting your construction elements. Each aspect of your building (walls, doors, windows, roofs etc.) can be drilled down to component level enabling you to perform complex changes to suit your specific requirements. Access the details of each element from the illustrated dialogue box and then go further into detail using the component editor.

Timber construction display

Apply timber construction display to individual walls, floors and roof structure.

Create split level buildings

This could range from a simple step-down kitchen through to a hillside home staggered with the slope of the site. 

Construction elevations

Advanced wall outline editing

Take full control of the profile of your walls for maximum design flexibility. Decide how and where walls interact with features such as stairs and roofs. Manually edit individual wall profiles to recreate unusual shapes, architectural features of even garden walls.

Instant elevations and easy cross-sections

Due to the technology involved in providing 3D models from 2D floor-plans, Arcon Evo can quickly produce elevation views for your designs. Arcon Evo enables you to generate your elevations automatically, using the height settings already defined as part of the standard drawing process. Add cross-sections quickly by defining the view point using the section tool and reviewing or editing further in Plan Mode. Show wall construction detail in section view.

CAD software for site plans

Multiple storey buildings

Designing multiple story buildings couldn't be easier as the entire floor (including fixtures, fittings and furniture) can be copied to form the rest of the building.

Suitable for any construction project

Fully scoped to allow you draw both simple residential home designs and large scale multi-building or commercial estate developments in one drawing project.

Create compelling visualisations and walk throughs

3D building design model

Add 3D objects and customise textures

The standard library contains over 8000 3D models for the furnishing and fittings of your project. Included are objects for bathrooms, kitchens, living areas, dining, gardens, offices and many more and apply textures to surfaces, objects, fixtures and fittings to change their appearance and style. Direct access to SketchUp 3D Warehouse gives you additional 3D detail to apply to your 3D scene.

The powerful rendering tools, which are incorporated in Arcon Evo architectural CAD software will enhance your project with realistic lighting and shading effects. See how the lights change the view of the building during any time of the day at different viewpoints.

Impressive 3D visualisations

Win more jobs by presenting impressive 3D visualisations which are automatically generated from a 2D plan in a single mouse click. Fully interactive 3D model and walkthrough will enable you to examine your design from every viewpoint.

Supports 3D printing

Take your 3D visualisations on screen to next level and turn your 3D model in to a 3D print. Quickly test concepts and make more informed design decisions using physical 3D models. Arcon Evo architectural software supports 3D printing. Simply import your CAD file into 3D printer and start printing!

Effectively share your building designs 

Scaled floor plan drawings

Produce scaled drawings with full dimension tools

Scaled drawings often need to be annotated with precise information confirming sizes, angles, distances etc. Arcon Evo comes complete with a full quota of dimension types to suit all requirements.
