Still new...I need to play with it more..
I am an instructor of AutoCAD for 12 years now and after using CorelCAD, I can say it can be an AutoCAD replacement. While I am using it , sometimes I forget that I am using CorelCAD not AutoCAD. As a graphic designer, CorelCAD is so useful specially when presenting ideas to people. I create technical drawings in CorelCAD...then export it to my favorite graphics software (CorelDRAW)...then add effects to my drawing..and create a perfect presentation. Everyday I discover something new and powerful about this software. Great job Corel, CorelCAD is what I am waiting for for years.. With my knowledge of CorelDRAW, CorelPhotopaint, and now CorelCAD..now I can say I am a complete designer.
"Seems like an expensive rehash of free CAD software"
Version: CorelCAD 11.4.209
No sure of any after trying the demo.
There are free CAD software that appear to have similar functionality.
For example, there is a program called DraftSight that has been available for free ( www.draftsight.com ). The CorelCAD interface looks very much the same as it!
I fail to see the originality of CorelCAD nor its price justification considering that there are free alternatives with sufficient functionality. I did not notice any significant contributions to my workflow with CorelCAD.
