"Deleted in under 5 mins!"

August 18, 2011  |  By harrisonaard1

 |  Version: CadStd Lite 3.5.9

Pros

Can do lines.

Cons

Everything! Can't get a proper scale, relative base size, accurate measurement on the drawing, start/stop drawing, insert gap....etc. etc..

Summary

As much as it pains me, Google Sketchup is fantastic in comparison. Yet on its own, I'd give that only one star too. Can it be so difficult to draw some boxes to an accurate scale? I can draw it on a piece of paper quicker!

"Good product for free"

June 21, 2010  |  By pkutzer

 |  Version: CadStd Lite 3.5.9

Pros

Easy to use, OK for my purpose.

Cons

Can't find any fault for what I have to use it for.

Summary

Good basic program. If you expect a lot more, then you have to pay for it.

"Not totally free:"

November 21, 2007  |  By mrbwsmithjr

 |  Version: CadStd Lite 3.5.9

Pros

Nice software to keep on your thumb drive when you need to create a quick drawing. Installs quickly.

Cons

Very scaled down. To get more functions, you need to purchase the Pro Edition, which isn't that much better.

"Great Low cost CAD program (CADPro 3.7.0)"

August 10, 2007  |  By makatkpu

 |  Version: CadStd Lite 3.5.9

Pros

I had NO CAD experience when I tried the Lite version. I finally purchased the Pro version (for the userguide and tutorial) and after printing the guide, I was on to it. In a short time, I could construct a survey plat from the legal description, and I actually have found errors in recorded surveys when doing so.! Also useful for panel sizing and millwork profiles in cabinetmaking.

There have been 10+ revisions since the version listed (3.5.9 to the current 3.7.0) including 16 layers and 'keyboard shortcuts' which really speed up the draw/edit process.

Don't hesitate ..... purchase Pro for $37.50 and print the Userguide.

Cons

No cons.....you can export to Sketchup if you need more sophisictation.

"Not Straightforward..."

May 12, 2007  |  By wait4the1

 |  Version: CadStd Lite 3.5.9

Pros

It is a nice program, it seems to be capable of creating advanced CAD drawings.

Cons

There was no uninstaller included in the package so I had to uninstall the program from the Windows Control Panel using Add or Remove Programs! It's too complex for a casual user. I took a few classes in architecture and engineering in school and this program is far too complex for me. It has a steep learning curve-- the interface isn't very straightforward.
