Overall Satisfaction with AutoCAD

I have used AutoCAD to ultimately to create 2D and 3D drawings. We create documents such as plans, elevations, sections, etc., importing information such as topography, MEP, etc., to create accurate drawings. Files are used to send to laser cutters for the purpose of creating physical models of the project.
  • Fast drafting program
  • Can draw with specific dimensions and details
  • Gives easy access to tools
  • Not the best software for complex designs
  • Requires a PC with a high speed and space on the hard drive
  • Good practice to save work frequently in case of a crash
  • Enhanced document creation
  • Increased speed and generation of remodels
  • Saves time through efficiency
It is the industry standard, which speaks for itself. The software creates precise and logical designs that follow a mathematical pattern. It is easy to stay organized and saves a lot of time with shortcuts. It is extremely powerful and can be used for your specific needs.
AutoCAD is a great tool for drafting documents/images quickly and easily in architecture. It is excellent especially for applications such as basic floor plans, landscape studies, documentation, etc. It is easy to tidy up and keep layers organized. Its software is used globally and can reproduce 3D pictures. However, the over 3D experience is time-consuming and a large task. The program can take a while to learn. It would not be as appropriate for a largely detailed engineering project.
