CorelCAD is not our primary CAD software, but it could be. It's a versatile alternative to AutoCAD LT and for most users a suitable replacement for AutoCAD. CorelCAD saves in AutoCAD .dwg or .dxf formats allowing convenient exchange with other companies. All-in-all, it's a powerful package for 2D and 3D drawing.

Why don't we use it as our primary package? Primarily because have thirty-plus years' worth of drawings in another format. When do we use CorelCAD? When interfacing with customers who use AutoCAD or other software that interchanges with AutoCAD. If we were starting from scratch, it would likely be our primary choice as a more economical alternative to AutoCAD with all the features most users will ever require.
  • 2D and 3D mechanical drawings
  • Interchange with AutoCAD users and other CAD users.
  • Publish technical data sheets and drawings.
  • Creating PDF documents
  • For those unfamiliar with AutoCAD the interface can be a little overwhelming.
  • Expanded 3D functionality
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.
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.
