Overall Satisfaction with AutoCAD

AutoCAD is being used by our organization to produce engineering drawings for client approval and construction purposes. It is only being used by the drafting department, where all the engineers pass on their project details to get their ideas on paper. The business problem autoCAD addresses is the ability to provide formal documentation that is of a quality standard to the client.
  • 2D Engineering drawings.
  • Has a great ability to reference other documents within a drawing.
  • The ability to export the final drawing for client approval.
  • File size limitation for embedded objects.
  • User interface and customization.
  • Construction detail.
  • Client approvals.
  • Creation of standards.
AutoCAD has a more user-friendly approach to drawing, and the interface is easy to use and is understandable. BricsCAD is an exact replica of AutoCAD in terms of user commands, however, it is cheaper to license. The industry that we work in, though, expects a certain file type of drawings, and hence AutoCAD was selected.
AutoCAD is well suited to an office type environment where drawings are constantly being produced. Where it is less appropriate is for smaller organizations where drawings are not as vital, but CAD is required. The reasoning behind this is the fact that Autodesk has phased out perpetual licenses, making the cost of the software unjustifiable.
