Pros: Gcadplus is a powerful CAD program that a landscape designer can use to quickly create professional designs for presentation to clients, use in house, etc. It comes with everything I have ever needed and much much more. Other programs designed for homeowner use are absolutely terrible and more "mainstream" software options cost 10 times as much or more. I've owned the software for 5 years and they are constantly updating it and have never charged a penny. There is a slew of online videos to teach you all you need to know to get started (moving from drafting with pens and pencils). If you ever run into an issue there's probably a video to teach you how to get past what you're having problems with.

Cons: The company is based in Australia so consequently getting in touch with them can be a bit tricky if you are say in the US - additionally a good portion of the videos and support blocks etc. are in Metric vs. Imperial (that's not to say that there isn't an imperial version). These are minor gripes.

Overall: Digitized all my designs, improved the quality/accuracy of my designs, helped sell and keep copies of my designs. I could go on and on it has changed my work for the better in so many ways.

Pros: GCADPlus, an incredible idea for the design, preparation and resolution of spaces dedicated to gardening and landscaping, which offers a lot of tools in its software to make life easier for outdoor designers as is my case, whether in micro projects, as in more diverse and diverse levels. It is an easy-to-understand app for anyone with basic training in design, even in certain cases, even an amateur can make true botanical structures worthy of the highest category of gardens, minimizing annoying processes that hinder development too much creative designer. So gCADPlus is an excellent option for those who have a good taste for the design of gardens and landscaping, with a cost low enough to enjoy 100% more of the experience of gardening.

Cons: I have no complaints about the site, everything has seemed excellent to me so far, I will continue to use the service for a long time.

Pros: can design all types of images, figures and plans, in 3 d, generate render very easily; you get a lot of material on the web that facilitates its operation, it is also cheaper than some of the similar programs

Cons: the amount of RAM required or required for its good functionality. just like at some moment it takes for the render to render

Overall: perform infrastructure design in 3d and achieve shows to the clients in real time, being convinced of the works
