New design and construction tools
Numeric input tools are a must-have for exact plans, which is why the new version has made great strides in this area! New input methods for walls, windows, and doors make your life easier while new number-focused tools allow for added precision and flexibility in these areas. Along with the new extra parts for windows, doors, shutter boxes, blinds and borders, this program delivers a significant productivity boost to all design and construction-related projects.
Many new catalogs and objects
Ashampoo 3D CAD is also so popular because of the sheer number of objects it comes with. Get access to over 1,200 new ED objects and 250 ready-made groups with the new group catalog! It includes groups of pre-assembled garages, kitchen units, garden sheds, and saunas. Create your own directories and access them directly through the catalog. It's a usability dream come true! And by popular customer request, we've added the ability to measure heights at values above sea level in cross-sections and views. Get ready for a program that also shines in the details!

Photovoltaic installations - rooftop arrays and flat roofs
No good project design should be without photovoltaic installations. For roof-mounted system, you can already specify their layout, select modules from the object catalog and their placement during the setup phase. For flat roofs, you can simply specify which parts will be or will not be used for photovoltaic elements during the design phase. When you're done, you can place the entire installation in just two clicks and adjust distances between rows of panels or rotate and realign them - it's the perfect approach to preliminary planning!
Powerful area analysis
Due to popular demand, we have added additional area analysis and calculation features plus suitable output templates. Aside from living space you can now also process floor space, walls, ceilings, facades and many other areas. Facade areas can also be easily exported to PDF, RTF or Excel files! Position lists for windows are also no longer a problem.
Mirror objects with ease
Two powerful tools will help you mirror 3D and 2D objects and symbols either across any axis or their center points. This also works with multi-selections of the same element type which can save you a lot of time! CAD software doesn't get any more flexible than this!
The clean, thematically structured user interface gives you 1-click access to all features. Everything is logically arranged and easily accessible. You decide whether you'll use classic toolbars or the modern ribbons you know from Microsoft Office products.
Input aids and wizards for straightforward handling
From roof designs to terrain modeling - Ashampoo 3D CAD provides useful input aids and wizards for all complex operations. You focus on the contents and the software does the rest - as it should be.
Exterior and interior design elements included
The built-in object catalog gives you access to various building components, textures, materials and symbols. It takes only a single click to place doors, windows, balconies, carports as well as sanitary and electrical installations in your designs. You can import additional objects from SketchUp and Collada. This gives you a detailed view of the finished project already in the planning phase - down to the last details!
