Hear from our happy clients

Time and time again, ARCHLine.XP has came out on top compared to the likes of Revit, ArciCAD, AutoCAD and Sketchup. ARCHLine.XP combines the best of all these worlds into a single, highly flexible and easy-to-learn software.

“I have used the software since 2009 and over the years has helped win some very important clients. It allows me to present my work in a very high standard, easily and efficiently. The Cadline team is also there to support me creating High Res CGI when my time is limited. The quality is exceptional and I cannot recommend this enough and I am happy to discuss with anyone who wishes to know more. My recent presentations at Grand Designs featured the latest designs using Cadline and was applauded in its detail. Many thought they were photographs of the project.”

Nicholas Sunderland, NS Interior Designs

*Award-Winning Interior Design Firm

The idea to design something for ourselves was very intriguing. As we are about to start our own family, it was much fun to play with the idea of imagining our future home. 

I have prepared the documentation – demolition, construction, suspended ceiling, electrical plans, wall elevations and mood boards with ARCHLine.XP, a platform I got to know around the beginning of this year, and which I have been using for my work ever since. Before I used to draw by hand, which was very time consuming, but ever since I started using this software, my work has become much faster and far more accurate..

Monika Bona, Bomo Interiors

*Award-Winning Interior Design Firm

“I think it’s quite a challenge for any designer to design their own homes, because the end result will reflect their own personality, style, values and professional skills. I dreamed up a home for our family, the space to which it’s a pleasure to return, and which can be a suitable meeting ground for friends and family alike.

I was going for an elegant, sophisticated and modest contemporary style. I like to apply the “less is more” principle in my work – and this is what motivated me here as well...”

Krisztina Szilagyine, Kriszta Art Interior Design

*Award-Winning Interior Design Firm

I quickly found that it was extremely user friendly and a joy to learn but also because it comes with a built in facility to easily create exceptionally good renders, you can quickly see your ideas come to life.

ARCHLineXP’s amazing features have totally transformed our business and would likely continue to bring new opportunities.

Dóró Judit, Doro Design Studio

I get the feeling quite often that I have the most beautiful and amazing job in the world, because it is an uplifting feeling to design the living environment of a family. I did not use the expression “house” on purpose, I’d rather call it environment, which entails the house just as much as its effect on nature, the neighborhood, the living tissue of the settlement itself, or on the people who live in it. The architect, therefore, can simultaneously be a creative artist, and an engineer who seeks logical solutions...”

Gabor Scholtz, Architect 

“ARCHLine.XP has certainly made a lot of things easier for me. For example, if you want to design a kitchen, there’s a tool for that; if you want to do a bathroom fit-out there’s a tool for that; and the stair, railing and roof tool are also incredibly useful. It has allowed me to add a higher level of detail that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to add in other CAD programs. It’s both a great architecture and interior design tool.

Hendrik Boshoff, Architecture (Honours) Student
