Overall Satisfaction with AutoCAD

We use this for designing different models and drafts of our project prototype. We also provide training in the field of design to engineering students. This is mainly used by the Mechanical and Electrical Design Department for 2D and 3D drafting as well as rendering. This helps us to provide proper dimensions for prototype development, training students about design concepts and 2D drafting.
  • Command line as well as GUI helps both new and professional users.
  • Simple commands and ribbon menu.
  • Block and data importing is easy.
  • Requires training for getting started with AutoCAD.
  • The use of TEXT and MTEXT properties are confusing.
  • The design can be easily compatible for the different AutoDesk platforms which makes it easy for both client and us to work on the software.
For designing the 2D drafts it is one of the best software. But when it comes to detailing the drawing and designing the 3D models, the software can be bit improved. For getting started with the design work, I generally recommend this software so that people get familiar with the basics of the design process.
