Architectural Design & Drafting Software

Expand your architectural horizons with a CAD program that can truly do it all.

PunchCAD’s line of 2D/3D CAD software is the perfect fit for all your architectural design and drafting projects. If you’re a DIY beginner or a seasoned architectural engineer, we’ll help you raise the roof (or at least help you design it).

Plan

It’s easy to start with a simple sketch and finish with a detailed floor plan ready for the build phase. Add symbols from the thousands of interior and exterior objects that will make your project and plans come to life. Easily import and export to dozens of different file formats. You can stick to 2D drafting or dive into the advanced 3D tools that will help you design and print 3D models, period/antique details, or even furniture!

Whether you’re designing a floor plan for a new house, an overdue renovation, a functional office space, or even advanced 3D modeling of architectural details, PunchCAD is your go-to architectural design partner.

3D Walls

With ViaCAD 2D/3D and above, take your 2D floor plan to 3D with a click of a mouse. Doors and windows can be placed, moved, and resized while also viewing in 3D. View your drawings as elevation, isometric, roof plan, and better visualize your ideas by applying drag & drop custom building materials.

Architectural Detailing

Automatically add dimensions to your walls and selectively add key measurements to doors and windows using callouts and labels. Quickly identify room regions using single click filling and hatching.

Doors and Windows

Add intelligent wall features such as doors and windows with just a few mouse clicks. Or design a custom feature using the Insert Group into Wall tool.

Custom and Intelligent Walls

Create custom walls using different component thickness, color, and fill patterns. Quickly identify different wall types such as exterior and interior. Walls automatically heal when positioned next to other walls. Quickly explore new wall configurations by dragging or precisely changing parameters that control length, angle, and thickness.
