High-End CAD Has Low-End Price

Billed as "the total building design solution created by architects for architects," Allplan, recently rated number one in Germany, is being released in North America. Unlike competing CAD systems, which require the use of third-party applications to meet specific needs of the architectural marketplace, Allplan is a single integrated system designed to meet the needs of the AEC community. The program's capabilities include: architecture (including roof and stair design); 2D/3D presentation; photo-realistic rendering; image processing; and bills of material. Available in Europe for over $30,000, Allplan Release 10 is available at an introductory price of $4,995 and is compatible with Windows NT and HP UNIX.
