Likelihood to Recommend

CorelCAD

CorelCAD is ideally suited for creating mechanical 2D drawings for metal parts and assemblies. It is equally suited for architectural drawings. It is less well suited for creating 3D models. It also works well as an intermediary to convert between different CAD systems.CorelCAD offers a compelling and relatively low-cost solution that covers the vast majority of business needs creating both internal use drawings, drawings for fabricated parts, and creating more elaborate drawings to incorporate within CorelDraw documents.

Rhinoceros 3D is well suited for interior design, architecture, product design, shoe design, packaging design, jewelry design, and graphic design.

Cons

CorelCAD

  • For those unfamiliar with AutoCAD the interface can be a little overwhelming.
  • Expanded 3D functionality

Rhino 3D

  • Rhino has very limited sheet layout tools.
  • Grasshopper could be better integrated into the main interface.
  • Lack of backwards file compatibility can be frustrating.

Corel's support has always been outstanding. Technical support is always available to assist with installation and licensing issues and there is generally additional free assistance for a time period after purchase. Corel also offers online tutorials and other self-help resources. Ongoing and available support is one of the outstanding features Corel has always provided.

I think a lot of the time it is hard to find solutions to problems that come up online for both Rhino and plugins in for Rhino. McNeel doesn't seem to be very good at replying on forums with correct solutions or replying to more personal customer service issues that might come up.

Alternatives Considered

CorelCAD

AutoCAD compares favorably to TurboCAD at a comparable price point to its mid-line product. TurboCAD offers both higher level and lower level products that expand on the capabilities of CorelCAD, but for the majority of users, CorelCAD offers a good compromise of features to price point while maintaining a structure that will be familiar to AutoCAD users.When compared with AutoCAD products, it aligns most closely with AutoCAD LT and compares favorably in terms of functions and features. AutoCAD has moved primarily to a subscription model which I personally do not like. With CorelCAD, buy it, own it, and upgrade when new features are needed.

Rhino 3D

Rhino3D was built to excel at modeling complex, freeform surfaces with excellent continuity of shape. Rhino3D's large community, robust plug-ins and generative modeling with Grasshopper make it unique. Rhino3D is very affordable providing excellent value for the financial investment. Creo and SOLIDWORKS also work with surfacing and this is sufficient for most product design but Rhino3D is preferred for this task when the shapes are overly complex.

Return on Investment

CorelCAD

  • CorelCAD easily pays for itself even when not a primary product.
  • Due to its similarity to AutoCAD, it's a reasonable solution with a shortened learning curve for existing AutoCAD users.

Rhino 3D

  • When compared to other paid and most used 3D software on the market, it is undoubtedly one of the cheapest.
