We are new to Softplan, and wonder if there are straightforward ways to include traditional Southwestern architectural details, such as corbels, canales, vigas, latillas, etc.?


Are there special libraries available?


Thanks -

If you already have these items in 3D AutoCAD or Sketchup it is fairly quick and simple to create your own Softplan symbols.

Corbels are easily created using a polyline solids

Canales - I use openings, a blank should suffice.

Vigas can be created with the Lathe tool. 


litillas can be shown using Log Beams.  However if i am not sure if you can taper beams.
