Pros: I really liked the use of tools for architectural designs, which has an unimaginable number of ready-to-use templates.

Cons: I did not like it very much that it is necessary that the equipment has to be quite recent, so that it works perfectly, since by its graphics it uses a lot of memory.

Pros: This is the standard when it comes to engineering drawings, and moving to the subscription model has allowed us to stay up to date with product versions and releases.

Cons: It is expensive, and now that you don't own the licenses out right the costs can add up. In reality they are making you follow the correct approach of staying current.

Pros: AutoCAD is great if you need to design something with blueprints. You can create anything to exact specifications with ease.

Cons: It is quite easy to use, but, like most 3d design tools, it can seem a little frustrating at first. The learning curve isn't too bad, however. Once you get past that minor obstacle it's smooth sailing.

Comments: We love using AutoCAD, unfortunately Autodesk doesn't make viable business sense with their subscription services.

Pros: AutoCAD has been the standard computer aided drafting and design software for well over 20 years. It has an ever-increasing list of features which, at times, can almost be overwhelming. It's help menu and community forums help new AutoCAD users navigate the software efficiently.

Cons: The biggest drawback, in all honesty, is the 2016 switch to subscription only purchases. The lack of perpetual licenses and the annual subscription costs give all small to medium business owners pause, as this can cost several thousand dollars per person per year!

Pros: This is the standard for anyone in the architecture and engineering field. The tools can be powerful and work great when they work.

Cons: Some of the business decisions do not make sense. Packaging the software can be a pain, half the time their own tools don't function properly, no good way to manage updates at an enterprise level, file types for some products not backwards compatible with older versions, silly licensing decisions and very cost prohibitive.

Pros: If you are a keyboard expert, the program it self makes it easier to move around with any keypress, making the working become finished faster, giving more time to revise.

Cons: The mathematical view of the entire program can be a bit tricky. If calculations are needed to be made, a non mathmetician can get lost or create an incorrect blueprint.

Overall: Learning how to create and build any object using the measurements of realworld use.

Pros: Autocad is extremely powerful, it is a drawing tool that can work for any type of situation, we have created electrical, mechanical, civil and architectural plans with it, also room designs and layouts. It has so many features that make the use of other cad tools unnecessary if you can afford it.

Cons: It can be overwhelming, since there are so many comands you need to know just to perform the most simple actions such as drawing a circle or a line, it could be more streamlined. Also it is really expensive.

Overall: Autocad has helped us create precise drawings really easily, it's libraries are so complete that most of the drawings are almost pre drawn. If you can afford it's really high price then it's totally worth it.

Autocad is heart for the engineers in day to day work. It has been spectacular to work with it.

Pros: I like how this software is free, and how you can explore other designs. You can change colors, group, create holes and use pre-made shapes.

Pros: Its improvements from its earlier versions to the current 32nd release which fixed the small bugs and issues found in the previous versions.
PDF and Text capabilities that now allow for pdf importing and SHX recognition tool that allows for the conversion of shx files to text has greatly improved user input into the software.
For users working on large drawings, they can now begin a selection window in one part of your drawing and then pan and zoom to another part of the drawing while maintaining the selection.

Cons: Very technical and confusing interface that makes the software seem difficult to use and interact with.

Pros: It is a very easy and practical software to use, since drawing in it is quick and easy. It saves us more time when designing, it is faster to draw in this application than to make the drawings by hand. It has tools so that the works are as perfect as possible both in information and colors, text options, realistic presentation methods, etc. It allows to exchange information not only by paper, but by means of files, and this presents an improvement in speed and effective at the time of interpreting designs.

Cons: It is a paid software, which for many people presents a great limitation. Most people who want to learn to use this program have to choose to pay expensive courses to learn how to use them completely.

Overall: It is an easy to use software, I recommend it at all makes it much easier when making drawings.

Pros: What I like most, is its ability to manage a database of geometric entities (points, lines, arcs, etc) with which you can operate and design in two and three dimensions. offers you the option of cutting objects and projections. its ability to export design in templates in PDF format. Is a programa that allows you to be your retailer in the design of objects in two or three dimensions. It is a multifunctional program that can be used for multiple tasks.

Cons: It is a complex program that requires many hours of work compared to other simpler programs. It requires hours of dedication to learn the application of its tools. It is a difficult program to use. although in my opinion it is the most complete in the market.

Pros: This software is the most used its graphical environment is very friendly and I found it installed in practically all the jobs I had. That is, I did not have to learn another one because although they changed the versions it was easy to update to use it

Cons: The most recent versions require more and more hardware resources so in many cases you should improve the performance of the computer in terms of RAM and disk.

Pros: I have been using this software since 1997, and it's still one of the best for 2d drawings. User-friendly, with a good interface for all the most common function. There are tons of hidden function that might be easier to use, but if you learn the tricks it works perfectly.

Cons: I am not a fan of the 3d drawing system, especially for architecture.
You can export the files and work easily with other programs (like Adobe Illustrator), but sometimes I experienced glitches exporting and importing files.

Overall: Easy to use, flexible, easy to share information and files

Pros: I like the fact that this software is used by so many different users and businesses across industry. Most of the time, if an associate cannot have access to the more expensive 3D platforms, they will more than likely have access to ACAD.
Another great point is that it is always backwards compatible, so no matter what version the other parties are working in, I can still save my drawings in an older version format for them.

Cons: The software has been evolving over the last 20 years as I have been using it. Some changes have been good, others have been an attempt to keep up with other popular 3D packages. This has led to some very complicated tasks but most importantly, the software seems to get clunky and use up a lot of processing power and memory when installed. A small price to pay to have the daddy of them all available to you.

Overall: It just keeps you in the loop, allows you to view drawings from a wide range of industries from construction to architecture to engineering, all freely able to collaborate on the same platform.

Pros: AutoCAD is a good modeling tool. It's is an excellent tool for 2D design & Layout Coordination. It's a fantastic design, construction & coordination tool

Cons: I started using Revit instead of AutoCAD, so AutoCAD feels extremely difficult to use by comparison. I don't know most of the commands, and simple tools like dimensions are sometimes hard to find.

Overall: AutoCAD allows me to quickly model generic objects for the purpose of BIM Coordination. I often use it when I need to model placeholders for out-of-scope objects & place them into a coordinated model.

Pros: I like the almost unlimited options you have to draw. I like the numerous menus of options that it has, as well as its automatic adaptation for each case. The use of a command line to manage the software makes it easier to use and therefore its use. Easily integrates with resources and files from other applications. Its integration with other programs of the autodesk suite, makes its use in the design of engineering projects almost indispensable. Its precision is remarkable. The integration for the use of this software for the handling of the plotters and equipment of exit helps notably in the operation of production.

Cons: I do not like that it has limitations to handle more than 600 thousand points. When we have needed to manage several .dwg files of different versions, the software can be fragile, it hangs up or it just comes out. The availability of help on errors is not so good. The network licensing system, for the moment of its activation must be easier to activate in the work stations. The management of vectorized images is not as powerful as it can fail faster if this number of images are larger when they are in the same plane and that is a problem. External references can be more versatile and easier to handle and even for different network locations and protocols.

Overall: It has allowed us to deliver high quality products to our customers in a short time. He has made our professions, very competitive people and has energized our work.

Pros: Working in AutoCAD is more feasible and practical than if it were to be done by hand. It reduces the time frame to deliver a project and is simpler. It's linked to multiple platforms, with the benefit of being able to export and import files of all kinds and upload them in AutoCAD 360 or A360. Practicality ease in the modifications and order drawings and design change requests.

Cons: The initial cost of ownership is high. Requires high specs for processor speed, high amount of storage and an up to 8 GB to run it smoothly and get the most of it. Takes a lot of time to get the most from all the features and options since they are very specific.

Cons: - I had a lot of stability issues with AutoCAD LT 2013 and kept shutting down. AutoDesk customer support wasn't helpful at all, therefore I was forced to get updated to AutoCAD LT2018. Eventhough, it was a higher cost and constant upgrades, I do not feel like Autodesk added enough features or improved it enoguh from 2013 version to justify the increase. The cloud features and the mobile support is fantastic, however there's always ways to get around those with just the 2013 version.

Pros: As an engineer working with autocad is something that I do in an early basis. Working on the DWG files is extremely easy once you get the hang of it, and you can achieve a level of precision that is unparalleled by any other cad software. I've used it in works that are so varied, since designing upgrades for my own house with the blueprints i digitized, designing in my company and P&ID updating in large plants.

Cons: Learning autocad at the begining can be overwhelming, and for using it the best way possible you have to learn every single command that it offers, so be prepared to invest lots of time to domain it.

Pros: This full service product works fine, but supporting this software can be a bit of a nightmare. The online community is great, and I've turned to them quite often.

Cons: Painful to support/troubleshoot. Moving to a subscription model (pricing), which isn't great considering the support is sub-par.

Overall: Works like it should, top of the line.

Pros: The software is universally known by our technicians and designers to create and draft scenic designs. It seems to be straightforward enough that our recent college grads who have learned it can utilize it fairly quickly.

Cons: The software is bulky and definitely slow moving on older (and even some newer) computers. It's caused a couple computer crashes.

Pros: The experience I have with the Autocad is with the preparation of floor plans, facades and housing location. It has been very easy to handle with geometric figures, lines, arcs, circles, triangles; also allows to change the thickness, lengthen or cut the lines or edges of the figures, fill figures with solid colors or textures. It allows me to make the plans on a scale and print it with another scale greater or less than the one designed. Also, it allows drawing with details of sanitary pieces, hydraulic and electricity equipment. It makes presentations in 2d and 3d which gives an overview of the real design of the house, piece or equipment inside and outside. In addition, you can work multiple windows, copy images from one window to another, copy images from different files, you can export documents, tables and images from other software.

Cons: From this software it is difficult for me to work with different windows, and to select the printing area, for that I adjust the properties of the printer, which makes the printing slower. In addition, I find it difficult to work in three-dimensional planes. In this case, I make two plans one of the floor and another with cuts that show the heights of the walls or facades. It requires computers and monitors with higher requirements, for large plans plotters are needed; however, the plans can be adjusted to small printers, but the letters and numbers are so small that anyone can not read them.

Overall: The benefits I have received with this software have been: Being an engineer, he worked in the engineering area, especially in the area of civil engineering and architecture; I am dedicated, mostly to elaborate housing plans, as well as land location. It saves me a lot of time, because it allows to make modifications before printing, which I could not do manually, also, when the floor plans are the same, this can create copies and make the electrical, mechanical drawings without having to do the plan again. Also, since many planes are the same, those pieces can be copied from one plane to another, details that are required. You can rotate the plane, do 3D, change line thicknesses, color, add plants, vehicles to create the final design environment. It allows me to work from my house, and send the plans by mail at no cost. Previously, I had to print and mail physical plans or CDs. Make the details, at the scale of your preference and with all your minimum accessories. The presentation of the plans are of higher quality and precision and reliability. Also used to make figures for billboards, designed billboards with real dimensions. You can export and import images between softwares.

Pros:
which is a program that manages a database of geometric entities (points, lines, arcs, etc.) with which you can or through a graphic screen in which these are shown, the so-called drawing editor.

Cons: Knowing how to fully use the software requires a lot of time since there are many functions, and even that they are of little application, since they are very specific

Overall:
The Autocad is a tool to improve the quality of road projects and it is necessary to use the program by the professionals who carry out this work, besides there is no doubt that this program has numerous benefits for civil engineers when performing some plane be in 2D or 3D

Great product which helps engineers do their job with ease.
