The interface is familiar ACAD like. It works just like the Autodesk product, without the price.

Certainly a good, less expensive substitute for the Autodesk programs.

"a CAD about 2000 RM, acceptable lar,"

May 31, 2009  |  By duyulin

2009-05-31 18:08:57  |  By duyulin

 |  Version: ZWCAD 2009

Pros

actully it is not that bad. of course not powerful as auto. but sounds better than other similar CADs like proge, brics. the price is just about 2000 rm in malaysia, i think it is quite acceptable, you konw i spend 40 000 rm on autoccad.

Cons

some drawings can not directly open, has to be converted wor, a little bit disappointed. in a mass, it is acceptable at that price.

"Very good AutoCAD alternative"

September 01, 2008  |  By SiemEik

2008-09-01 03:37:34  |  By SiemEik

 |  Version: ZWCAD 2008i

Pros

Opens and saves DWG, DWT and DXF up to AutoCAD 2009. Text fonts, linetypes, hatch patterns, blocks are 100% compatible

Cons

No dynamic blocks, tables and fields.

Summary

Answers to some of the questions below:
- ZwCAD is NOT full of bugs! For that price you can afford a few more bugs and the developers are very eager to repair them if you send the details.
- Yes, the trial version only saves a limited file size.
- You can buy ZwCAD through an international network of distributors (see www.zwcad.org)
- 3D solid modelling is usefull, but it's a 2D drawing package in the 1st place.
- The API's are very good: 90% of LSP and DCL work without conversion, VBA-programs need some changes and a recompile. ActiveX and ADS are supported and very similar. Porting your software is not a big job.

"Good for those familiar with AutoCad."

August 07, 2008  |  By vs47552

2008-08-07 12:49:10  |  By vs47552

 |  Version: ZWCAD 2008i

Pros

This looks and feels like AutoCad.

Cons

Like Autocad, you have to know what you are doing. It would be nice if it were a little more idiot proof.
