Everything free of charge and under the same tool.
  • Insert CAD models. You can include CAD models, also called computer aided design, in formats such SKP, DWG or 3DS, for example, in your design plans.
  • Generate high quality images. With pCon.Planner you can quickly create realistic and high quality 3D plans and 360 degree images of your projects.
  • Everything centralised in one tool. Under the same platform you can access detailed and complete information of your proposals, full-scale drawings and even accurate budgets with all the furniture involved.
  • Work with BIM files. You can also work with BIM files to configure your plans, as well as import them in IFC format and continue to use the same building model throughout your design.
  • Create quick and visual budgets easily. With pCon software you will be able to create budgets of your design proposals, with clear images of the products featured. Manufacturers pricelists are always up to date so there is no margin to error and no time is wasted. For example, a useful feature for the french market is that pCon incorporates the eco-tax when preparing a budget, this is a special compulsory tax in France that offsets the damage caused to the environment by organisations or users who bear a tax burden, when generating any new budget. Time saving, productivity and efficiency is guaranteed with pCon.
