AutoCAD remains the uncontested drafting software for my daily civil & architectural demands.

5,0 3 weken geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: For a while now, AutoCAD has been my go-to CAD utility thanks to its rich features & undisputed performance. The software has a neat interface for easily navigating through the variety of plotting tools & organized tabs for all drafting purposes. it's hard not to recommend this software to anyone who's looking for a flawless CAD experience.

Pluspunten:

Since college, I've been regularly using AutoCAD to design 2D schematics in various course projects & till this day, the software has never failed me in fulfilling my work. The user interface is sleek & the plethora of features & compatibility to complement the fantastic user experience. More specifically, whenever I'm working a schematic that contains multiple layers (civil, electrical, HVAC, etc.), I'm easily able to lock or freeze other layers while working on a specific layer. This has countlessly averted me unintentional alterations of layers that I weren't supposed to modify.

Minpunten:

Since updating to version 2023.1, I've noticed an increase in CPU usage on my Athlon 200GE desktop which occasionally led to audible inconvenience from the desktop fans revving at full speed. I hope a future update could resolve this minor annoyance. A great piece of software nonetheless.

Love love love

5,0 10 maanden geleden

Pluspunten:

I honestly love the commands in AutoCAD, they're pretty intuitive without being overly complicated. I like that the command bar also explicitly spells out additional options for each function. I feel like the overall ease of use is relatively good. If you're familiar with programs in general, CAD will be no big deal. However, the return on the project is exponential for the ease of use, so that's wonderful. I use the program daily, even above doing simple linework in Adobe products, for example. CAD has become so ingrained in my workflow that I really can't do without it.

Minpunten:

The biggest con I can think of has to do with the consistent functionality of certain commands I use. For example, the hatching command does not always read linework as complete/joined even when I know that it is, which results in a wildly skewed hatch. As well, the draw order command does not always function properly. Basically, I don't have a huge complaint - more like I think there's still bugs that need to be worked out. Overall, I love CAD.

Opmerkingen: A software that can not be replaced especially the Pc version of it but some other softwares may be helpful for making Autocad more efficient and easier to use.

Pluspunten:

As it's to most developed software of it's kind of softwares, it contains the most important and useful tools that can be used to create or modify or even evaluate or improve the plans and the content. Especially in the windows or ios versions but unlikely in the mobile version.

Minpunten:

Sometimes it's necessary to get more tools and libraries from the internet wich makes it more difficult whenever you are working on a different type of plans, it would be very helpful if they could include all of the other items and libraries in the main product.

Professional CAD software

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: Autocad plays a very important part in my work. I have been using it since the beginning. There is no other application that can provide a clean and nice drawing in our architecture industries. It not only helps us save time but also helps us save engineering failure.

Pluspunten:

Easy to use customizable tools which provide a smooth and clean drawing. Autocad not only provide 2d drawing , It also provide user to create 3d drawing with wireframe. Another key feature of autocad is that it also provide drawing printing in all major file formate and with the help of A360 (cloude) You can share your drawing with anyone around the world.

Minpunten:

Expensive. Autocad is way to expensive for small industries.

AutoCAD is one of the best softwares I've used in my activities as an architecture student and works

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

The main pro about this software is its precision on drawings, models and any architectural, engineering, urban, mechanical and other kind of projects you need to make on it. You can use it on many work fields due to its versatility and operativity. Another thing that I love about this software is that you can work with archives of another softwares by only importing them, and you can export on another formats too; besides, you can select the year version of its native format so you can work with previous versions of this software, increasing the productivity among colleagues. AutoCAD has been a great support to my academic developement, and I'm seriously thinking about using this program in my professional practice; I would strongly reccommend it to those who are students of architecture, engineering, industrial and interior design and another careers. This software has been the best choice since I've tried it for the first time. It's a must on any construction and design company. Go ahead and use AutoCAD!

Minpunten:

One of the things I like least about this software is the fact that its interface is a little bit confusing sometimes, and it could be complex too if you misconfigure it; even though there are configuration buttons, sometimes they are confusing or they hide another things and drives you to desperation on how to find some things. So, my recommendation to the software programmers or developers is that they must find a way to make things a bit easier to the users in that matter.

Simple AutoCAD review

5,0 12 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: AutoCAD is hard to get and learn, nonetheless, this can be said for any displaying programming with such huge abilities. AutoCAD's trouble is very even out with the quality you can accomplish inside the product, and the wide conceivable outcomes it offers. AutoCAD is an incredibly powerful instrument to help originators and drafters to make drawings that look extraordinary and are not difficult to control, it can battle to deal with weighty venture responsibility with numerous 3-layered items in a single drawing. You can commodity and import pictures between programming which I love the most.

Pluspunten:

You can do nearly everything with AutoCAD, from the straightforward sketch of a space to the arrangement of a task without making a qualification assuming that it is power, building or structural designing. AutoCAD is exceptionally adaptable, and I truly like the client's capacity to set up their own default climate that can be utilized for new ventures going ahead. The upsides of the program incorporate, above all else, countless made apparatuses, because of which it is feasible to plan different, self-assertive components. Because of the broad library of materials, which is accessible to the clients of the program, it is feasible to choose such materials and surfaces, which are trademark for a specific plan office. Exactness and accuracy effortlessly of utilization, that is actually what AutoCAD is. With just PC mouse work and a tad of console utilization the things you can draw without holding a pencil and with next to no requirement for all that drawing and drafting gear on your table. Any sort of 2D drawings or 3D displaying drawings you can draw with AutoCAD, which assists you with picturing the articles better and that can be extremely useful assuming you are a designer, development engineer or a development labourer presently chipping away at a task including building an item or foundation. The fundamental orders like Copy, Mirror, and so forth can finish your occupation in only a couple of snaps.

Minpunten:

AutoCAD is hard to advance particularly for outright amateurs. additionally, while chipping away at weighty records, it very well may be hard to make changes on the document without the danger of your framework slacking or in any event, crashing. AutoCAD doesn't give full Building Information Modelling similarity. Its substance has just Geometric properties. It doesn't give full parametric demonstrating and add a material trademark to the model. AutoCAD can't turn out to be excessively parametrically determined or it will subvert Autodesk different contributions.

AutoCAD Review as a Engineering Undergraduate and a Young Engineer

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: AutoCAD is tough to pick up and learn, however, this can be said for any modeling software with such immense capabilities. This being said, AutoCAD is my favorite modeling software to use as I have been able to play around with it during college and throughout my internship. I have modeled small buildings to planes, and will continue to use AutoCAD as I believe it is the best modeling software.

Pluspunten:

With AutoCAD, your mind is the limit for what you can draw, simulate, and model! As an engineering student I used AutoCAD in a couple of my classes to create anything ranging from simple pieces of equipment to an entire Iron Man helmet (I would like to note that making the Iron Man Helmet took a very long time). The precision with AutoCAD always memorizes me, as you can make models that look real within the program. I have used AutoCAD for a few years now (throughout college and through my engineering internships) and still feel as if I have scratched the surface on the immense capabilities of AutoCAD. I highly recommend AutoCAD for any creative person that is looking to get into modeling or any company that is looking to improve their equipment drawings.

Minpunten:

I would definitely have to say that AutoCAD has been one of the more difficult software to pick up and learn (take this with a grain of salt though as all modeling software are typically very difficult to learn). AutoCAD provides many tutorials to help you get started, however, these can only take you so far. To become proficient with AutoCAD you need many hours dedicated to playing around with AutoCAD and watching other tutorials. Once you have gotten good at using AutoCAD, you will be able to create almost anything with ease. One last thing to note is that it can be tough to find what exact button you are looking for with the current interface. Other than that, I highly recommend AutoCAD.

Industry Standard for Drafting and Designing

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: As I use AutoCAD on a near-daily basis in the engineering field, it has become a tool that is second-nature while drafting and designing. While AutoCAD is an extremely effective tool to help designers and drafters to create drawings that look great and are easy to manipulate, it can struggle to handle heavy project workload with many 3-dimensional objects in one drawing; if you are able to plan and predict what a project will entail, you can plan your drawings accordingly to make sure that there isn't too much content in a single drawing which seems to cause this issue. As a leading tool for engineers, AutoCAD remains an excellent software for drafting and designing.

Pluspunten:

AutoCAD is a great drafting tool that has some great built-in functions to assist the designer in efficiently designing and drafting engineering projects. The customization in AutoCAD allows for great consistency in drafting by having custom uniform text, styles, and general features (such as pipe networks, pressure networks, and profiles to name a few), though this customization can also be a detriment which I will mention below. The majority of the interface is designed for ease-of-use, having all of the commonly used features in the ribbon and on the taskbar, while retaining the text commands for quickly accessing features for more advanced users. AutoCAD has widespread compatibility in terms of files it is able to import and read, as well as output formats to other drafting softwares. As I use AutoCAD with the Civil 3D add-on, there are some very helpful 3-dimensional tools that make it easy to draft your intended design with ease and the functionality of having various levels of complexity such as 3-dimensional surfaces, 3-dimensional pipe networks, and all of the associated tools (roadway corridors, grading tools, and surface manipulation.) AutoCAD is an industry standard for a reason - it helps the designer to efficiently and effectively complete designs with a wide variety of tools and options.

Minpunten:

Though AutoCAD offers some very useful tools, some of these tools are complex and there can be a steep learning curve for new users. The bulk of the issues encountered while using AutoCAD seem to happen on larger complex projects. For larger-scale projects where many different drawings and objects are referenced together, it is important for the user to understand efficient ways to link drawings and AutoCAD objects together to prevent file slow-downs and bloating of project files. The dreaded 'Fatal Error' is also not uncommon when working in larger complex projects, especially when using 3-dimensional functions in the software such as surface grading. As newer versions of the software cause older versions to become obsolete, it is crucial that you stay up-to-date with the newest version of AutoCAD if you are planning on collaborating with external parties or consultants. Ensure the machine you will be using AutoCAD on exceeds the minimum recommended software and hardware requirements, as it can be difficult to efficiently use this software on an under-powered computer.

The most reliable tool for preparing drawings and designs with precise engineering scales.

5,0 10 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: AutoCAD has been and continues to be the application on which I spend hours each day working on architectural designs and evaluating the many Shop drawings of the projects that I supervise, since my undergraduate studies and during the previous years. Your faith in the ability of construction workers and technicians to apply this is boosted by the clarity of the engineering standards that are included on it.

Pluspunten:

Whether you're a novice or a seasoned engineer, it's one of the best technical drawing tools ever created. You have helped me become an expert in engineering drawing and have helped me generate the best structural and interior designs over the last few years. Many new features have been introduced to this tool in recent years, including the ability to keep files in the cloud and collaborate with others remotely, as well as the ability to make design changes and obtain approvals, all of which save time and money by eliminating the need for physical printing. The AutoCAD interface is perfect for me since it has all the tools I need right in front of me, and I can customize it to suit my needs. I particularly appreciate the library it offers, which allows you to import and edit a large number of pre-made parts. It is possible to export drawings from AutoCAD to Revit and work on 3D designs and BIM principles using AutoCAD's interaction with other Autodesk products. When used in construction projects, this method cuts down on the amount of time spent duplicating tasks amongst civil, electrical, and mechanical teams, which results in a smoother workflow with fewer mistakes and reworks.

Minpunten:

Once you have completed the exercises that help you acquire the necessary abilities, AutoCAD will be a joy to use as well as easy to learn. The only issue is that you'll need a computer with a fast processor and a large screen if you want to create complex designs with a variety of different elements.

Autocad is the drawing board, it's up to the designer to show more creativity

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: Since I started my career as an engineer, I have always or almost always used Autocad as a work tool. I must say that in the engineering environment that I lived, we only spoke the AutoCAD language.

Pluspunten:

You can do almost everything with Autocad, from the simple sketch of a room to the plan of a project without making a distinction if it is electricity, building or civil engineering. If we master the integration of georeferenced images we can even speak of GIS. I said "if we master" because in autocad we have everything we need to make our project emerge, but we need the appropriate users. It is absolutely necessary to start using Autocad on a very good basis: choosing the layers by type of object, choosing and mastering the types, having a good vision in space (but you can acquire it with time), and especially not being afraid to go back in the event of an error, something Autocad does wonderfully. We must also locate the objects we need to make our drawings and classify them in a library. For drawing plans, you have to master the scales and cartridges, something you do once and for all. There is also something that I have noticed when working a long time with other civil engineering software, and that is the power Autocad has to manage an enormous amount of information without bugging. It only depends on the hardware which must be sufficient for the installation of Autocad as for other software of its importance. Autocad offers the possibility of integrating applications like Covadis for hydraulic and VRD calculations and if you master Lisp you can automate certain tasks which depend on the type of project you want to carry out.

Minpunten:

Autocad is a tool that adapts to all situations but which requires a continuous investment in self-training. You have to learn good habits and ask the right questions knowing that it always offers the right answers. This requires either hard-working designers or knowledgeable supervision.

AutoCAD: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

5,0 7 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: I had a hard time getting started with AutoCAD. The interface is not very user-friendly and the learning curve is steep. Once I got the hang of it, I found that it was very buggy and would often crash. Overall, I was not impressed with AutoCAD and would not recommend it to anyone. It has limited features, crashes frequently, and can be difficult to learn. On the other hand, I think it could be useful for someone who needs just a simple CAD software program. If you are looking for something complex or have any experience with CAD, this is not the program for you. However, if you need something basic that is easy to use and doesn't require much technical knowledge, AutoCAD might work for you. I do like that it's affordable and comes with all the features you will need in a CAD program. There are also helpful tutorials available on their website to help new users get acquainted with AutoCAD quickly.

Pluspunten:

AutoCAD is the industry standard in CAD (computer-aided design) software. It has been around for over 30 years and has changed significantly during that time. With each version, new features are added, existing ones are improved, and the interface changes to accommodate those changes. I've been using AutoCAD for about a year now, and I have to say that I'm really impressed with it. It's very user-friendly, and the results are always accurate. Plus, it has a lot of features that make it really versatile. Overall, I'm really happy with AutoCAD. There is room for improvement, but I can see myself using this software for years to come. One thing I wish was better was compatibility with other CAD programs. In my field, we use two different types of CAD and there's no way to import files from one program into another. That would be a nice feature to add in the future. Other than that, everything else is great! And even if you're not an engineer or designer, the tools AutoCAD offers are still very useful. I used it on a class project last semester and made some pretty sweet posters. Not only does AutoCAD do well for professionals like me, but people who just want to design posters too! Definitely worth checking out :)

Minpunten:

Overall, I was really disappointed with AutoCAD. I found the interface to be confusing and difficult to use. The software crashed a lot and was really slow. Plus, the learning curve was really steep. I wouldn't recommend this software to anyone. It's just not worth it. There are so many other programs out there that are better than this one. The price is outrageous for what you get. If you're looking for an easier to use program with a great UI, try Sketch Up or Fusion 360. You won't regret it! They both have some really awesome features and a much better UI than AutoCAD. They also both cost way less money-even though they do almost everything that AutoCAD does. Seriously, don't waste your time on AutoCAD when you could be using something else more worthwhile like Sketch Up or Fusion 360. They will work for what you need and save you time in the long run because of how easy they are to use.

AutoCAD - Everyday work and private designing

5,0 9 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: I was working with AutoCAD during my two internships, my first job, and in my private projects. To tell the truth, at the beginning it was a quite confusing piece of software. The number of functionalities can overwhelm. However, after some time I started to use it smoothly. AutoCAD allows the creation of drawings efficiently with relatively low effort (especially compared to some other tools that are available on the market). I created a lot of projects, both 2D and 3D - industrial and private. AutoCAD is definitely better for 2D (as it was created for it). Sometimes it was enjoyable, sometimes frustrating. I believe the latter usually, as a result of my lack of knowledge. Every big software contains some bugs and problems. E.g. sub-file import management could be better implemented, as it sometimes loose track of file binding. Also, for some reason, half of the space needed for installation on my hard drive was filled with some strange sub-tools that I never used. The inability to clean those was mildly irritating.
Overall, I love AutoCAD as it allowed me to complete multiple tasks in my work and private life. Despite containing some annoying issues, they are usually minor or rare. I strongly recommend it, particularly for 2D work projects.

Pluspunten:

Amount of functionalities. Help Centre -> Explanations and examples. Ease of usage and intuitiveness (if a user is somehow proficient). Ease of big projects management.

Minpunten:

Occasional problems with sub-file imports after file/folder location change. Installed with a huge amount of side programs that aren't necessarily needed -> May be confusing for the beginners. Fairly high price.

The most powerful CAD software

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: Being a student of Environmental Sciences, I extensively use AutoCAD in my projects to visualize landscape for perameters implementation and I has always found it to be very impressive.

Pluspunten:

AutoCAD is the one of the most powerful and best software for drafting and to draw designs. It is very straightforward and its self explanatory UI makes it very easy to understand, even for novice users. It operates in multiple layers and hosts a large library of control commandsand shortcut keys to help you in getting work done easy and fast. It enables you to quickly materialize concepts and ideas in the form of drawings for project designs to meet the required specifications. It is also able to rapidly perform simulations and design calculations, along with auto evaluation of certaiy unknown dimensions. It consists of a large variety of functionalities and tools to fulfil to the demands of users from different industries. It comes with a high level of compatibility and integrates readily with a big number of other designing software. You can also use it to open and edit 2D drawings created on another software. Due to its large and active online user community, getting help is easy when faced with a problem, adding to the pre-existing resources it already have online. Also sharing filea with other CAD software in the market is pretty easy in AutoCAD.

Minpunten:

Though AutoCAD is a very powerful software, yet like everything it has room for some improvement. The biggest disadvantage of AutoCAD is its price tag, which is not in the budget of everyone especially students. Also being a heavy softwarr, it requires a computer with high hardware resources to carry certain tasks like creating 3D drawings fast and without hanging the system.

AutoCAD is to create

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

When technology is used to develop the capabilities of the human being, then it is considered part of the evolution of man. Saying "AutoCAD", independently that you do not know about the field to which it is addressed, it is already well known that it is an indispensable software for the creation of designs, used both in architects, as for most engineers, industrial designers, among others . This platform came to light (1984) and revolutionized the way of designing in all professionals, and in those that are not. To venture into this system is to give free rein to the design projects that you want to implement. Now, this is not a discovery, because it already has enough time in the market, so the only difference that can be seen in this review to differences from the others, is the term "indispensable" for all generations of "creators". As if that were not enough, and knowing the usefulness of this tool, the years have made its platform continue to develop with more useful tools within its system, to give it better functionality. Obviously, it is not the only software that is used to design and create, but without a doubt, it is the "dad" of the other versions

Minpunten:

The only bad thing that could reduce the AutoCAD, is that being a design program so important, its evolution has generated that only some may have the opportunity to approach them, it requires a powerful and advanced computer to resist and produce the levels graphics that this software uses. Although, there are more "light" versions, one will always seek to have the best of all editions, so you will need a team to match. As if that were not enough, and knowing the usefulness of this tool, the years have made its platform continue to develop with more useful tools within its system, to give it better functionality. Obviously, it is not the only software that is used to design and create, but without a doubt, it is the "dad" of the other versions.
