Pros: The take off Viewport, imagine getting accurate measurements to the millimetre when using PDF or DWG files, awesome. Accurate estimates that minimise waste on site reduces costs as I can now produce accurate Estimate Tenders for my clients, essentially I pay my trades only for materials installed. Cubit is a massive time saver, imagine taking off all the bathroom tiling and the contents of the bathroom in less than 3 minutes? Yes, with the Options feature I can do it, time and time again after creating a Template.

If you're not using Cubit you're wasting time, money and family time. I hope my competitors don't start using it..........

Cons: A couple features need tweaking, however, with a little bit of common sense those features can be utilised and essentially incorporated within the take off of my projects. My back ground includes working as estimator for many of the major Sydney based project home builders, with these skills I don't them as Con's just features that require a little more thought to implement.

Overall: After creating a detailed Master template, I'm producing accurate results. This template has evolved and using material quantities from previous projects I'm confident that my waste is on the mark, I'm my trades for only what they install. Seeing no packs of bricks left over, small piles rubbish comprising mainly of packaging materials, my customers see that they are getting value for money, after all they're not paying for valuable materials being wasted.

After the hype about the program then actually using it I was very disappointed with the result

Pros: I like the fact that it is all on the one screen and the way it aks you to scale the drawings as soon as you ;load them preventing the problem of using an unscaled drawing

Cons: You cannot use vector PDF.s on this program & even when using the rasterised PDF's if you zoom in to a point the information on the drawing disappears so you have to zoom back out to refresh it. I found that this problem made the takeoff process very slow in fact it was quicker to do a manual takeoff in some cases. I have made a request to my supervisor to change to another estimating program that can work efficiently, (COSTX)

Overall: None
