What's NewAll new interface
Arcon Evo represents the next level of 2D to 3D CAD solutions. Our all new design is based on years of experience and feedback from our thousands of users worldwide. Retaining the simplicity of earlier Arcon titles but with a streamlined interface, Arcon Evo is intuitive and fast to use whilst allowing complex, detailed adjustments to be made to any design.
User selectable interface elements
New to Arcon Evo is the ability to select your preferred icon set and choose whether to use traditional OK/Cancel buttons or the new dynamic dialogue box options.
Plan layout mode
Existing users of earlier versions of Arcon will have used the software in combination with Creative Lines. In Arcon Evo the layout and detailing tool is included in our new Plan Layout Mode. Enabling you to produce layouts of multiple floors, elevations, 3D views and more, Plan Layout Mode provides the flexibility for you to produce your drawings in your preferred style.
Planning submission standard drawings
With a comprehensive set of tools suitable for all aspects of building design, Arcon Evo enables you to easily draw your building to levels suitable for planning submissions, add detailing and working drawings for building control and visualise it all in a detailed 3D model.
Develop complex roof designs
Select from any of the standard roof types in the library or use the free form roof editor and blending tool to create complex multi-roof structures. Easily edit the roof parameters from pitch and eaves height right through to wood construction details. Then modify the roof easily with dedicated tools for dormer windows and skylights.
Customise windows and doors
The library includes editable pre-designed doors and windows, including internal and external doors, garage doors and bi-folding windows for extensive window and door customisation. Select an existing type from the library and change any aspect to ensure it suits your design requirements. Using the component editor, each object can be fully edited including dimensions, materials, colours and styles or edit hinges, handle sizes to styles, frame thickness, opening type.
Advanced 3D staircase editor
The staircase editor supports many complex stair types, the flexible staircase tool now allows for much greater freedom of design. Choose from a myriad of options to define all of the key elements of the stairs, balustrades, risers and treads. Customise your 2D display to suit your preferred presentation style. You can adjust the parameters and see the changes instantly in 3D.
Take a 3D virtual walk-through
Analyse your design in detail with the 3D walk-through feature. Enter and explore your 3D model, check for space issues and the practicality of your design.
Convert 2D to 3D in an instant
With two distinct workspaces you can quickly and accurately design floorplans in our 2D construction mode and check the results instantly in the 3D model in the design mode.
