"Excellent productivity tool when used with Softutor"

March 23, 2011  |  By rjet50

 |  Version: AutoCAD 2011

Pros

Tough to say much for a demo that's so complex to use, but when used with the softutor AutoCAD tutorial on download.com, well ... wow! AutoCAD is an amazingly productive tool. I updated the tutorial 2D & 3D, mastered AutoCAD, showed my boss & wow!

Cons

When used without a tutorial it's very hard to become productive enough within 30 days to see the value of the product. With the tutorial you can become productive while its in demo mode. This is the 4th time I've tried AutoCAD & I finely get it!

Summary

Once you get AutoCAD down its hands down the best product for the price on the market. Although its steep learning curve hinders its success. I've tried demos several times and just did not have the patients to learn enough of it to make it worth the steep price. But some how when I searched for AutoCAD I stumbled upon a free tutorial for it on download.com as well. I hate to read and 99% of most tutorials are a waste of time, but not this softutor product. All I can say is wow! I hate wasting my time learning when I just want to draw and design.

I've been working in cad since 1984 and have tried many others unigraphics, sdrc, solid edge, solidworks, microstation, verascad, ideas, smartsketch, sketchup ... but autocad finely got it. Not sure what you can do to improve it maybe add more smartsketch like commands. Still not sure why you need revit or inventor as 3d is really easy to use in autocad once you get it down. I can just look at objects and know how to draw them, plus when you convert your 3d to 2d (for plotting) you have to wonder why you'd ever want to design in 2d again. took me about a week to get proficient in autocad learning 2d in a few days then finishing with 3d in a few more, but did buy the updated tutorial (w free update to 2012). Not like the old days of going to classes for 6 weeks and forgetting most of what you learned before you get back.

Cannot wait to get the full version of 2012!

"Great for teaching drafting classes!"

January 14, 2011  |  By TechGuy40

 |  Version: AutoCAD 2011

Pros

This software is great to use to teach students how to do CAD. We have used this for many projects including a trebuchet project!

Cons

Can be pretty pricey - if you are an educational institution - check for special pricing from your software vendor.

Summary

Very great and professional product that you can use to teach students some of the basics - into advance CAD techniques and best practices.
