What to expect?
More often than not you find that the project you are working on makes you face serious challenges. Even if communicating your initial ideas to your clients runs smoothly, there is the hardship of realizing renovation projects, where many factors should be taken into account: how do you process floorplans, how do you use data from co-designers, how do you handle old, irregular buildings, and how to quickly create a model that instantly sells your design?
Below we are collecting some of the many ARCHLine.XP features which help you to tackle everyday design challenges. As time is a limited resource for all, we also give you some hints and pointers on how to learn using ARCHLine.XP as fast as possible - so less time is spent on trial and error, and more time is devoted to amaze your clients.
Start your project
One of the most important tools in the remodeling industry is design software that helps the professionals to visualise the project during the survey and conceptual stages. Providing precise floor plan and 3D images will help your client to visualise what your project will be when completed. Using ARCHLine.XP is so quick to create the floor plan with the model using different methods:
Draw from scratch
In ARCHLine.XP you can start drawing a renovation plan even if you only have the lengths measured on spot. To replicate a wall with the original length and thickness is just as easy as creating a line. ARCHLine.XP supports the design workflow with a user-friendly approach, so you can create a complex floor plan literally in just minutes.
Work with scanned drawings
If you have nothing else just the hard copies of the original plan ARCHLine.XP is giving you a very convenient way to use it - just import it and use it as a scaled.
Import a DWG - Work with CAD files
You can use the imported CAD files (DWG) for the floor plan. The Smart floor plan tools help you to create precise floor plans in just a few minutes. You can add pop-up text memos and photos to support areas in detail.
When creating your floor plan you need precise dimensions. The Smart Dimensioning tool will automatically create all your floor plan dimensions with a few simple clicks.

Doors and windows
ARCHLine.XP comes with a large built-in library of doors and windows. You can customize all the openings to create a wide range of variety. If your renovation project has something special you can create it based on the photographs in ARCHLine.XP.
