OK Softplan folks. How about a New Year's treat and start letting us know some of the new and improved features we can expect in the next version? It would be a great way to start off the New Year!

I will say that is one thing that is nice with Softplan+, feeling like a kid at christmas but not having to worry about paying (well at least up front) for the presents. :-)

I am planning on attending the Builders Show again this year so if they have any information there like last time, I will be sure to post it.

When SoftPlan 2018 came out they previewed it at the IBS.  I missed that show but I had a friend that got me some information.  I will be attending this years show in Vegas and am really looking forward seeing the new version.

Back in the office from the show last week.  I just want to say that even as Architects, designers or whatever your status is with building industry, the International Builders Show is a tremendous experience.  I like to go and see the new software or computer equipment etc.  But the information on the building products is just tremendous.

As for SoftPlan 2020 I sat in on the whats new and it was an abbreviated session and ran through things quick.  But there was a lot of new things that are going to be big time savers.  I also sat in on the SoftPlan development forum.  That was a good session, we got to voice our opinions on a number of topics and how to make things better.  I personally hope they do those more often maybe do a webinar every 6 months or so.  I also talked to the president of SoftPlan, he was demonstrating a 3D printer and printing a house that was drawn in SoftPlan.  Really cool!

I have the SoftPlan 2020 brochure they were handing out and was going to scan it and attached it to this, but not sure if SoftPlan would like that since they havnt put anything on their website yet.  They did say that the Plus subscribers will be getting their email this week to do the upgrade.

It is suppose to show up in the start menu after SoftPlan verifies your key.  It said to allow at least a business day.

Try going to the Softplan website under support then installations. You'll have to enter your key #, mine didn't show up there till a couple hours after I signed up.

Is it the full version or is the pre-release version that I am seeing on the start page?
