Arcon Evo

Arcon Evo

Product Review (submitted on 26 April 2018):
Constrained by a budget, I decided to design and self build a relatively substantial outbuilding which would encompass an office, workshop and store.

Tired of having to correct time consuming scale hand drawings, I decided to search for a software programme which suited my needs not only for this project but also to aid in my studies and development as a student currently enrolled on a BSc Building Surveying degree. I do not have any previous CAD experience and wanted a suite which would be intuitive but also provide enough detail to submit a planning application and building regulation drawings.

I decided that Arcon Evo would match my requirement, but unfortunately the software requirements specified a Windows OS system and I operate from a MacBook Pro. I can report that if you’re in the same position, using Arcon Evo is still possible. I created a partition using the Bootcamp application loaded onto the Mac and installed Windows 10. Arcon operates without issue.

The main reason I wanted to write this review was to highlight the support offered by Tim Bates, although my project was not complex, in order to get the detail right I needed Tim’s assistance a number of times (and probably will until I submit the files for planning). Tim responded to all emails and questions within 24 hours and on a number of occasions made the corrections/alterations for me.

All in all, a very good investment.
