Draw your floor plan according to German norms and standards

Drawing the floor plan of a house

Requiring architecture or graphics studies. From the floor plan according to German standards to the integration of windows and doors, stair elements and connections, step by step, you work your way towards furnishing and detailing of your house planning. Lay the desired floor in CAD by texturing the desired surfaces, set up virtually and use the integrated furnishing libraries.

You can change individual steps at any time, display the 2D and 3D presentation of the project in several parallel views on the screen, save content and share it with your friends and involved professionals. With our innovative 3D house planner, you save a lot of money and need an architect only for the examination of the statics and for the control/final acceptance of your drafts. Cadvilla is perfectly suited for planning a new building or a conversion, for a renovation of existing properties and for a redesign/new furnishing of your houses and apartments.

Extensive functions for planning your project

Cadvilla’s architecture software includes many outstanding functions that support you in the intuitive creation of professional floor plans. Below, we would like to introduce you to some of the features that are particularly appreciated by our customers. Get inspired!


Entering components

Intuitive entry of components

Walls, ceilings, stairs, windows, doors and many other elements are defined and entered with dimensional accuracy via intuitive dialogs. Each element has different configuration options to cover the versatile variants.

Presenting different views simultaneously

Parallel working in multiple views

Several 2D and 3D views can be displayed simultaneously on the screen. If an element is entered in any view, it is displayed in real time in all other open views (e.g. the entry of a window in the 2D top view)

Multi-layered walls

Wall construction and multi-layered walls

The wall construction of the used walls can be changed and supplemented as required. The individual wall layers of multi-layered walls can be displayed with different hatches and patterns or filled with color.


Working with layers/foil technique

A layer is a foil which is assigned to 2D and 3D elements (e.g. from the areas of interior design or electrical planning). By showing or hiding individual layers, different plan views can be created for different applications, for example.

Roof planning

Extensive roof functions incl. wood construction

After defining the roof outline, the roof and the roof truss are automatically proposed. If the proposal is changed individually, all affected roof sides, including the wood construction, are automatically recalculated.

Planning solar system

Detailed planning of the photovoltaic system on the roof

After selecting the desired photovoltaic modules and defining the associated parameters, the PV modules including mounting material can be positioned on the roof. In an evaluation dialog, you can then calculate the estimated yield and create a parts list for it.

Wood frame construction

Walls in wooden frame construction

Already during the input of the ground plan, walls can be presented optionally in wood stand construction method. The timber frame construction is automatically generated for each wall according to set parameters. It is also possible to change an existing project to a wood frame construction later. This option for creating a timber frame construction is only included in cadvilla professional plus.

Modeling your own 3D objects

Modeling your own 3D objects

Starting with cadvilla professional, powerful 3D designs are available for modeling your own 3D objects. With these, rotational bodies, planar elements or shapes following a polyline can quickly and easily be captured. By combining several of these elements, impressive 3D objects can be created to present your project in even more detail.

Visualization of a house

Photorealistic 3D visualization with ambient shadows

For the final calculation of 3D visualizations, settings for edge smoothing, soft shadows, ambient shadows, reflective and luminous areas and others are included to achieve appealing and photorealistic results. High-resolution images are generated through direct conversion into an image file.

Other functions and highlights of the individual versions

The basic functions of cadvilla are the same in all versions. You will be surprised how much software you can get for relatively little money.

The versions of cadvilla are based on each other. Here, you will find an overview of the features of all individual versions in a tabular presentation.

The prices of cadvilla are low while the offered scope of performance is high. See for yourself. You will be enthusiastic about all the amazing possibilities.

Cadvilla can be used for many applications

Cadvilla’s strengths lie in the creation of sophisticated 2D floor plans (e.g. for a building application), in the calculation of photorealistic images directly from the 3D visualization and in a real-time walk through the 3D presentation of the project. No matter whether it is a new building, conversion or renovation – cadvilla can therefore be used in many ways and for various application areas.

Plan layout

Creating floor plans and drawings for your building application

Draw complete floor plans of your house or apartment exactly according to your ideas and without any restrictions. Use the extensive functions of cadvilla to create your floor plan with all details and prepare the plans for your building application. All functions required to comply with German standards are included in the program.

Positioning 3D models from the Internet

Visualizing the project in 3D and walk through it in real time

While you create the 2D floor plan, the corresponding 3D model is automatically created at the same time. The 3D visualization shows you a photorealistic 3D view of your floor plan with planned furnishing and gives you a first virtual insight into your new home. By walking through it on your computer, you get a feel for the planned room situation and, at the same time, you can recognize planning errors immediately.

Drawing blueprints

Creating detailed construction plans and 2D drawings

In addition to the pure floor plan functions, our 3D CAD program allows you to easily draw professional construction plans and at the same time take all important DIN standards into account. The intuitive 2D drawing functions help you create meaningful detail drawings with ease. All functions for drawing your details support different colors, line widths, fill patterns and line types.

Electrical plan

Software for electrical planning, water and sanitary planning

After creating the 2D floor plan, use the 2D symbol libraries with electrical, water and sanitary symbols contained in cadvilla to draw a suitable electrical plan, water flow plan or sanitary plan. The library can be extended by your own 2D symbols using the extensive 2D drawing functions.

Kitchen planning

Software for 3D kitchen planning

After having captured the floor plan, you can add the kitchen with kitchen furniture of your choice. Use furniture from the included kitchen catalog or from one of the additional 3D kitchen collections we offer. Starting with cadvilla professional, you have the possibility to import real kitchen furniture from well-known manufacturers directly from the internet and then place it directly in your 3D kitchen planner software.

3D bathroom planning/software

Program for bathroom planning in 3D

The 3D furniture can be modified in any size and color. Import cadvilla professional 3D furniture from well-known manufacturers directly from the Internet and use it in your 3D bathroom planning.

3D garden planning

Garden planning in 3D

Model the terrain using contour points, contour lines and predefined terrain shapes according to your preferences. Draw your garden house and garden with the included garden libraries of garden furniture, plants, people, animals and trees. Simply drag the 3D models from the object catalog directly into the 2D/3D presentation of your project and position them at the desired position. The drawing of a carport can easily and quickly be achieved thanks to the innovative operating concept.

Living room rendered

Program for 3D furniture planning

After finished creating the floor plan, you can start planning the furnishing. Cadvilla offers you many 3D models from a wide variety of areas. If these are not sufficient, you can purchase additional 3D object collections and integrate them into cadvilla. Starting with house planning software cadvilla professional, it is also possible to download 3D objects directly from the Internet and integrate them into your planning.

Create Fire Escape Plans
