Pros: Ability to change many things in an AutoCAD drawing in a short amount of time, the ease to set up and use, the customer support, ability to run a test run on drawings and it won't save the outcome so that you can see if it is doing what you want it to do, ability to save your scripts for use with other projects, the titleblock update wizard

Cons: The only things I really don't like is that you have to work it from a mapped network drive. I would like to have the ability to type in a path \\servername\foldername. And the UI could use a freshening up, looks like Windows 98/XP type, need ribbons and so on.

Overall: Being able to change many aspects of many drawings quickly, title block changes and so forth that users would have to do one at a time, I can do all in a short amount of time

Great AutoCAD automation software. With a few clicks you can update all of your drawings!

Pros: The ease of use. It doesn't take long to do what you need it to run. I've done over 40000's drawings now and it saved me countless hours giving me more profit.

Cons: Installation can be tricky/confusing. A bit pricey for small businesses to purchase. Error handling could be better, some way to catch an error and report back where it stop and for what reason.

Overall: Time saver. Saved me many hours and all of my projects.

Since discovering the software it has been a godsend when dealing with large numbers of files.

Pros: Very powerful if used correctly. Started off using it just to print large quantities of files, now it gets used for almost all repetitive tasks and saves me at least an hour each day on average.

Cons: The licensing would be the least likable option. If you license to a user then if that person leaves the company the license is lost. If you license it to a computer when the computer is replaced after say 5 years, the license is lost. If you license to a USB stick, if the USB stick is damaged, license lost (don't use cheap USB sticks).

Overall: Time saving would be the highest benefit.

Hurricane has saved us so much time.

Pros: I love how you can do so many different things. I like you I can go in and make changes on our title blocks and the print them at the same time.

Cons: At first its kind of hard to learn but once you do a couple its not bad.
its takes awhile to run the programs
No videos to walk you thru everything

Overall: This software save us so much time when it comes to making changes to our title blocks and also when we have to print our PDF's
