Some dimensions move for no apparent reason. 3d modeling could be improved upon. As a 2D program I use it daily and prefer it to 3D modeling programs for drawing details.

For the computer-aided design, I would not recommend Geomagic, and would prefer AutoCAD. In the case of other designs, the GeoMagic is good with the sheet metal design. I would work with this in the future for sure. The working UI is good but needs improvement and has lots of features that can be improved.

Cons
ActCAD LLC
  • My major complaint is sometimes the dimensions do not stay where I place them.
  • 3D modeling is complicated for me.
  • Need to specify wall types and be able to create custom walls.
  • Need to have a roof manager to make trusses or hand-stack framing.
