AutoCAD 360 has multiple functionalities that adapt to circumstantial conditions. It has a focus on available tools at all times and deserves to be updated to be at the forefront of technological platforms. It is very useful in some aspects of functionality to have access to less dense and capable tools to develop environments and improve visualization.

FastPIPE

It's absolutely well suited to anyone needing accurate piping takeoff and laboring estimates, with great reporting and up to date pricing. I love that I didn't need to spend time trying to update the price logs. It's easy to learn, and works well in a large or small environment, and lends itself to more than just estimating, but becomes a good project management tool as well. Fantastic software.

Pros

AutoCAD mobile

  • Allows our entire design team to share and review information graphically in one location (cloud-based).
  • Has the capability to fluidly interact with many other Autodesk software products.
  • Being able to use AutoCAD 360 on the iPad is a great feature without having to install the software.

FastPIPE

  • FastPIPE was very fast to learn, very straight forward and user-friendly. It's easy to use and teach new interns and project engineers how to quickly takeoff sections to backup change orders or assist in heavy bid load.
  • It's fantastic at keeping up to date on price changes. I'd get updates often, and they were usually within 2-3% of our discount prices with local vendors. In the few instances it wasn't, FastPIPE was very easy to adjust or factor for project costs.
  • Is great at being able to pull up reports and graphs and track different materials and labor costs for factoring. We bid on a lot of high rise residential buildings, so we do takeoff by floor. It would give detailed reports per page as opposed to just a lump sum. Very detailed so it was easy to adjust per our project approach.

Cons

AutoCAD mobile

  • It'd be nice to be able to use AutoCAD 360 to leave comments on peoples files, such as being able to annotate a certain part of it and mark it for review, so then its author can look at the note and make necessary changes.

FastPIPE

  • It was a trick or two learning how to upload prints correctly, I think that interface could be a bit easier, but it's already better than most of the competition.
  • Might be nice to have easier labor factoring, in case we want to pre-load our own instead of MCA time factors for piping labor
  • It would auto update upon opening occasionally. It's fairly fast, but I prefer to OK that in case I just need to come up with something quickly and don't want to wait.

This is so useful so we would like to keep renewing as Autocad 360 does. In fact we are very optimistic about the tools that come in every renewal because we will then have even more features available.

The AutoCAD 360 can work directly from the program, making changes or indicating where changes should be made while agreements are reached for the good of the project you are working on, the other systems show you the plan, but they do not help you with the edit or modifications

FastPIPE

I've used the quote soft piping takeoff as well, and it's just not as easy to use or update. Basic methodology and interaface is similar, but it's more 'clunky' to use, is harder to keep updated and to upload PDF's for takeoff, and it's just not as streamlined or user friendly. Akin to comparing driving a truck to a sports car. The Fast Pipe is really smooth and easy to function in.

Return on Investment

AutoCAD mobile

  • ROI is a bit low, because a lot of people are moving to Revit and BIM 360.
  • Not all consultants use CAD so it makes it hard for compatibility.
Benjamin Wyszynski | TrustRadius Reviewer

FastPIPE

  • Best impact is time saved. It's so much faster to do bid takeoff and hit the ground running
  • Being able to 'draw in' on design-build and being able to print my takeoff has been helpful when turning the job over so the field install understands the approach taken to get the job.
  • Ease of use and learning has made it much more cost effective to bring new people up to speed.
