Smart Design Made Easy

In the 1990s, you had to be an Einstein to use home design software. Now it’s easier than ever — with far more functionality that saves time and money.

Home design professionals are looking for software that’s ultra-flexible and eliminates tedious, time-consuming data input. How can you tell which software is best for your needs?

One program to consider is LP® Solutions™ Software. Its newest innovation is a load transfer function, which automatically calculates the loads generated by the objects in one level of floor framing and applies them to the level below. Thanks to this feature, the designer doesn’t have to manually input the load on joists and beams — or individually calculate each beam in a separate program.

Load transfer is just the latest in a series of LP Solutions Software innovations. The program is easy to learn and easy to use. The software has an architectural feel, yet encourages users to play “what if?” with materials and options. You can also work in 3D, a major difference from other design programs on the market.

LP Solutions Software helps increase efficiencies in each phase of a project. Picture-driven menus ensure that what you see is what you get. And the program offers unsurpassed flexibility. You can move, change and rearrange elements with ease — and the program’s true parametric modeling maintains the proper relationships and connections.

With LP Solutions Software, price quotes and materials lists can be fine-tuned. You can also link the program to accounting systems and other business software. LP Solutions Software lets you design better buildings faster while improving your bottom line.
