HDB floor plans > AutoCAD .DWG

HDB 5-Room flat Fernvale Foliage 3D ModelI wrote this page in 2013 after being hired by a Malaysian architect to draw 5 HDB whole block floor plan in AutoCAD, for analysis of space efficiency. Later, a Singaporean asked me to draw his own HDB flat and suggest furniture layout. Another one asked if I have certain HDB flat in DWG format, I replied “I can draw it now in AutoCAD” but he said “Thanks anyway” and quit.

Beside this, watching website traffic I see many searches like “hdb 3-room new generation dwg file“, and most people do not click About Me page to see that I am also AutoCAD designer and I could draw and sell DWG files on order basis.

So I made this page to show… some of the HDB flats designed so far. Drawing a 2D floor plan of a HDB flat was taking about 1 hour and 3D-ing it another 10 minutes.

In 2013 at top of page was a big red text “I can provide DWG file, 2D or 3D model of your HDB flat for only $20!” and about 10 people/year paying for such service at the peak in 2015-2016. Due to rising website traffic and getting busier I changed price to $40 in 2017, only 3 more people hired me for this service by 2018. Even with doubled price, it no longer worth my time doing AutoCAD jobs compared with database jobs.

In 2019 I decided to NOT engage anymore in projects that generate less than $100/hour, effectively putting an END for Paper to CAD conversion services. If you need such service, feel free to hire a freelancer who do not have other jobs like me.

HDB floor plans AutoCAD DWG file


You can give me floor plan of your flat, you can choose a floor plan from the page with 100 typical HDB Floor Plans (but beware of possible differences between your flat and the typical floor plans posted here), or give me your block number and I may have or not the exact floor plan in my collection of PDF floor plans collected from Sale of Balance Flats.

There is not mandatory to provide a floor plan with dimensions. I can also use a block plan from BTO brochures, put it in AutoCAD, draw a polyline over 4-room flat and scale it until it reach the floor area of 90 sqm. There will be a small error margin, but it will be no problem if you use DWG file for presentation only and not for calculation of interior design.

You can choose the detail level (2D or 3D, add furniture, dimensions, or leave only walls) and how to give you (DWG, DXF, PDF, etc).

Price formula: $20 + $20 for each flat floor plan or + $40 for each block floor plan. This formula is intended to provide discount for people who need more than one floor plan. With other words, $40 for first flat and $20 for additional ones, $60 for first block and $40 for additional ones.

Drafting 2D over HDB floor plan takes about 1 hour if I am not busy with another project. 3D-ing a 2D plan takes 10 minutes.

I treat each customer individually and give you a personalized DWG file. There is a chance that you want DWG of same flat type as a previous customer, this save some time, but the drawing may have only walls in 2D and 3D because this is what the previous customer wanted, while you want 2D only but with dimensions and furniture, so I cannot sell “as it is”, instead I will remake drawing “as you want”.

    1. I don’t understand if you are interested in MY service or you are promoting YOUR service.
      What do you mean “I will do that plan in very accuracy and without charging” – without charging = you do for FREE? if you don’t charge money, why you would do this job?

    1. Sometimes I do for free if takes less than 30 minutes, but you don’t have a bit of RESPECT for my effort and time? I mean that if you solicit someone’s service, is NICE to pay for it.
      The link provided is to Postimage main page, can you tell me properly what do you want?

  2. good morning
    this site was so good in terms of free consultation and advises
    also in service. 🙂

    i just want to ask if
    i want to have a simple plan
    three storey
    rectangular plan(symmetrical)
    with roof truss

    commercial for first floor
    office for second
    and residential for third

    of atleast a minimum of 250 sq. m

    thanks a lot admin
    more power to this site
    and to ur business. 🙂

    1. So you’re asking if I HAVE = you’re looking to buy pre-made floor plans?
      There’s IMPOSSIBLE to predict what customers come in and design in advance… I don’t HAVE because I never designed any office-residential mixed building, but I can DESIGN one now. Please clarify your requirements (land length and width and number of rooms for residential part, to see how many units can fit per floor, as I guess that 250 sqm should be footprint)

  3. Hi. I like that plan for JUN. I want to use it for a project in School. I am not good to the maximum in the use of Autocad. Can u help me with Clearer details of that plan for JUN. Email me please. Thanks.

    1. If you can get from HDB a floor plan with mechanical and engineering, I can help you converting to AutoCAD file. I do not have enough experience to draw mechanical and engineering over a normal floor plan from my mind without any reference, like how I draw house plans from my mind.

    1. Yes I can design landed houses too… do you have a floor plan that need to be converted to DWG (and it include dimensions or I need to guess dimensions), or do you have a piece of land and need architectural drawings to build the house?

      Talked via email. This person have a house in Indonesia, don’t have floorplan and wants me to travel to Batam to take measurements and suggest a layout for second floor… sorry, I won’t travel just for this!
