Serviceable

long lead train up time. doesn't do fractions of an inch. manuals are vintage 1980s layout and style; old. can do drawings of a basic bookcase, boxing projects. construction lines and coordinate boxes are very useful once you fight thru the manual to understand them. zoom is limited to stops, not smooth and the centers jump around so always recentering. Difficult to make a rectangle in a solid color?!? Odd. Colors can be changed by layer and layers are useful for separating parts or type of function. Snaps work ok but a puzzle to figure out coordinate system.

The product is hard to use, no technical support and hopefully I can transfer the license in to other computer.

Design Cad 2D

Design Cad 2D was fairly easy to learn to use. It doesn't have COGO so I use a separate COGO program and just use Design cad for making maps. I get a lot of use out of this low-cost software.

DesignCAD 2022

Software seemed very capable but the tutorial for basic commands is bad. The help does not work at all and no online assistance was there.

WINDOWS 64-BIT & 32-BIT COMPATIBLE

Choose from our traditional 32-bit version, or install the new 64-bit compatible version, that utilizes expanded computer memory to load, process, and render files of nearly any size.

SMART MENUS

DesignCAD offers smart menus that are initially presented with a shortened list of available menu commands to help reduce screen clutter. The menus can be expanded to show all items by clicking on the double arrows at the bottom of the menu. Great for learning, this option can be enabled or disabled depending on the user's preference.

LAYERS

DesignCAD utilizes layers that can be independently switched on and off in order for users to have a better visibility of the drawing. For example, if you just need to see the outline of a component, switch off other layers containing center lines, dimensions, etc.

DesignCAD can also lock layers, so that they are visible but not editable, in order to prevent accidental changes to the locked layer. Some features of objects, such as color or linestyle, can also be controlled on a per-layer basis.

ASSOCIATIVE DIMENSIONS

Associative dimensions will automatically update as you change the size of the object they are associated with. For example, if a radial dimension is associated with a circle, when you change the radius of the circle using the Info Box, the associated radial dimension is automatically updated to match the new radius.

ADDED FLEXIBILITY WHEN SHARING YOUR WORK

  • Print Section - Print only a specified region of the drawing.
  • Print Scale Options - Select from a standard set of print scale options or create your own.
  • Info Box - Roll out or more permanently open the info box to display the details of any selected object to help you speed through the design options, even if you’re still learning/span>
  • User Notes – Add notes to any drawing/span>
  • Save for Sharing - When you save a drawing, all files referenced externally (textures, symbols, images) are saved to a subfolder with the host drawing’s name.
  • Paper Space Mode – Create a view frame and choose a specific scale or enter a custom view frame scale.

AUTOCAD® DWG/DXF COMPATIBLE

Work with the latest AutoCAD® files. Import/Export AutoCAD® files from R12 through 2020 and enjoy excellent compatibility with AutoCAD® layouts and PaperSpace, plus support for AutoCAD® layers, linestyles, views, and blocks in both DXF and DWG file formats. DesignCAD even offers limited support for Architectural Desktop (ADT) objects, which are recognized and exploded to DesignCAD equivalents.

DesignCAD can import, or open, leading CAD file formats including DWG, DXF, vector WMF, HPGL, and XYZ. DesignCAD can export or save to DWG, DXF, vector WMF, HPGL, PDF and SKP.

DesignCAD also supports several image formats including .BMP, .TIF, .JPG, .TGA, .PCX, .PNG, and .GIF

USER INTERFACE:

NEW SELECTION TOOL:

User can now select the whole drawing just by selecting any portion. Select right to left updated to select the entire object if any portion is selected. Select left to right stays as it is, i.e., select the entire object if and only if the whole object is inside selection box.
