Pros: First, it's ease of use. Second, it's wide functionality. The third one is its affordability (i.e value for money spent) and The Fourth one is their support. Their support staff are easy to reach and fast in sending their responses.

Cons: It will be great if speed increases further though it is better than all other cad software compared.

Overall: When i was unable to spend high amount of money on other top cad software for multiple systems, actcad helped me solve the problem with affordable price and full functionality.

Pros: A lot of functions are same as AutoCAD, but it IS a slow software, I am unhappy with it. Have 3 keys, will sell if anyone needs

Cons: Regeneration speed is slow, and graphics also are slow and the commands also are not great, used the software for 2 hours max

Overall: We thought it would be great but we were wrong, only used to convert higher formats to 2010 format only

Pros: I like it has got all features. I like its uncomparable pricing offers with out compromise. More importantly we never felt any issues while using till now.

Cons: Initially need more time to understand the software. Could have been more user-friendly architecture flow.

Overall: Cost is the foremost benefit. Other benefit which is equally important is affordable to everyone. Hassle free from monthly subscription.

Pros: - AutoCAD compatibility and commands.
- Fast loads.
- Handles images and underlays well.
- Supports AutoCAD file formats all the way back to the beginning.
- Support always gets back quickly with suggestions and solutions to issues.
- eMails keep you updated with the newest versions.

Cons: My only beef is that it doesn't handle fonts well when creating a PDF document either using the export function or a PDF print driver. The same driver works well creating the fonts with AutoCAD.

Overall: AutoCAD compatibility

Pros: I like the ease of use and the fact that it is similar LT. I also like that I can import ACAD drawings or DXF files into drawings. The help function is good.

Cons: I get green construction dashed lines at times that I can't get rid of on the screen. Guessing this could be a opportunity to contact customer service or maybe there is something in the manual. They do not show up when I print.

Hello Douglas, Thank you for your valuable feedback. Regarding temporary green lines, they are basically due to graphics display problem and also the snap settings. Please try enabling and disabling Hardware Acceleration, update your graphics drivers to most latest. Also try disabling your tangent snap setting enabled by default. Feel free to drop us an email at support@actcad.com and we will respond to you immediately. Regards, Krishna MM

Pros: In the panorama of alternatives to Autocad, I deepened the Intellicad world and I decided to try Actcad also for the very favorable cost, I also wanted the possibility of using the Cad on multiple computers and this was a prerogative of Actcad.
The clean interface and continuous updates make Actcad a software that keeps up with the technical evolution.
Fast and professional assistance, maximum attention to the customer even with only one license.

Cons: I had some initial problems with the license and the release of the same for the transfer of the software, some initial imperfection on the interface, now resolved and also the updating procedure from complicated and simple.

Pros: Do not have to subscribe and operates like the higher priced software from a user standpoint. Home projects are a breeze.

Cons: Lisp and other development software is a little more difficult to get a grip on. Online examples/tutorials for their versions are scarce so one must learn through trial and error and allot of drive.

Overall: I primarily got it to teach myself lisp, but haven't devoted time enough for that yet.

It has a multilingual interface.Very good price, modern services and functions, good producer support and frequent updates. It has an interface similar to AutoCAD

Overall: I saved a lot of money by choosing this product.
