Throughout my architectural career, I have used a plethora of design software, such as AutoCad, Revit and ArchiCad. I have always seen the potential of SketchUp, but was derided for thinking that it was a professional tool, and suited to anything other than visualization. Like many of the millions of Professionals that use SketchUp (to whatever extent) around the world, I was yearning for SketchUp to become smarter, more powerful, and parametric. We were waiting for the day that SketchUp would compete with the likes of Revit and ArchiCad - and with PlusSpec, that time has finally arrived. PlusSpec has made Sketchup a full implementation (from design to construction) BIM/VDC software. It is the perfect balance between design and construction, and allows for unprecedented communication between your colleagues, consultants and clients - in both 3D and 2D drawings/documentation. I loved PlusSpec so much that I ceased practicing architecture, and became part of the PlusSpec team!
Quick thanks to the RubySketch team for the amazing software that you have provided for us. As a tool to assist in sales generation, "PlusSpec" is unsurpassed in my experience in the building industry. It makes it easy for clients to picture the finished product and is quick to use once training is completed. Keep up the great work.
I think PlusSpec has great potential, can really transform and change the way we do things, if we put the floor down one click of a button and I've got the walls another click and there's the roof and it can be quite a complex roof. You do it once and you do it well.
I would just like to thank you and express my appreciation for the service provided and knowledge shared by the PlusSpec team during Saturday's training day. I was given fantastic insight to the PlusSpec and sketch-up capabilities and also received some valuable one on one time with all the guys which definitely helped as I started the day with basically no knowledge of how to use the software. I left that afternoon with a huge amount of confidence and newly found skill of designing 3D developments. After a few months of practice I will surely return for a more advanced tutorial. I shared the room with another 8 clients which I found was a real bonus as we could share industry relevant questions and brainstorm with the group. The brains of the software, Andrew, Grant, Josh and Peter were all there to share their incredible knowledge and did so with a very personalised service. Tyler and Dean were also very helpful in preparation leading up to the day.
I just thought I would say how much PlusSpec has helped our business. We are a small company, and we rely heavy on leveraging technology to provide exceptional customer service. PlusSpec allows us to quickly produce and modify accurate 3D models of our clients projects. Being able to do this, sometimes with our clients by our sides has had a huge impact on us winning work. Only yesterday we won a significant job because we were able to economically (yes they paid for the work to do a proposal) provide them with a proposal, and show it to them in both printed and electronic form. This meant that in under 5 mins, and with little explanation from me they were able to wrap their heads around what their new space could look like and how it would work. All of it created with PlusSpec. So I just wanted to say thanks for a great product and all the work that you do constantly updating and improving it!!! The Team at ODM.
