    "Very good system."

    November 11, 2011  |   By v0002

    Version: PowerShape-e 2011 R3

    Pros

    Powerful easy to use CAD system with very useful options.

    Cons

    Requires a 12 digit password to open program each time it is started.

    Summary

    Excellent design helper.

    "Interesting but buggy"

    September 13, 2011  |   By rusk50

    Version: PowerShape-e 2011 R3

    Pros

    This looks like an interesting, powerful program with a lot of options.

    Cons

    Requires a 12 digit password to open program each time it is started. Takes multiple entries of this password on Win7 and sometimes will not open at all. Help is generic and for those new to 3d cad - of very little use.

    Summary

    Powerful , interesting but buggy and frustrating to use if you are new to 3D CAD.

    "Broke Broke Broke -- crashed 4 times in one hour"

    September 23, 2010  |   By BrokenWindow

    Version: PowerShape-e 2010 R2

    Pros

    Instructions clear. Some aspects not exactly intuitive. But, not difficult to adapt to.

    Cons

    Sorry guys, but the application crashed on me four times in an hour, while doing nothing more complicated than following your guided, trivial lines tutorial (I never got past the roof, did only minor experimentation).

    Summary

    I presume that the Win7 version of the freeware tool is a derivative of a licensed version that works without these problems (how else could they be in business?), or at least a version that works on some other OS. But, on this machine (Win7, 64bit, on a Quad core Intel with 8 GB memory) it be broke.

    While there were some things that seemed inconsistent and a bit awkward from a user interface perspective, these are hardly worth mentioning.

    "Useful free tool. Poor docs. Needs some features."

    January 29, 2010  |   By Leithauser

    Version: PowerShape-e 2010

    Pros

    It is free. It renders instantaneously. It has most standard shapes. It has many ways of "shading" (wireframe, enhanced, etc.).

    Cons

    VERY poor instructions. Some important shapes (like triangle) missing. Limited viewpoints: I would like to position the camera at a certain X,Y,Z point and point it at another X,Y,Z point to get just the view I want. Colors do not alway render right.

    Summary

    Useful, but limited. REALLY needs more documentation. Needs to fill in hte gaps on the features. Of course, for a free program, you can't go too wrong if you have the time to figure it out by trial and error without decent docs.

    "Great software"

    September 18, 2007  |   By mlwmlw

    Version: PowerShape-e 7240

    Pros

    This software is very advanced for free software, an added feature is that you can download tutorials for this software to learn how to use it!

    Cons

    It is a little different from the industry standards, and you must learn how to use it

    only 4 stars because it cannor be used with almost all other programs, and is basically just to learn how to design in CAD
