Pros: I've been using DataCAD since version 8. It's the best, most intuitive program out there. Easy to learn and you can jump right in without needed pricey training classes. Customizable keyboard shortcuts are BOMB.

Cons: We still can't print multiple collated sets. It's not the worst thing in the world, but it's not great.

DataCAD lags behind the other boys in the industry, but could be a good option for a smaller firm.

Pros: Easy to use. The simplicity of the software allows for someone to learn it fast.

Cons: The simplicity is what you get with this software. It doesn't have the features that other softwares such as BIM have that are becoming more mainstream in the architecture and engineering industries.

Overall: Our office uses DataCAD for architecture construction documents and it does that task well, but clients are no longer just happy with "CAD" drawings and want more 3-d visualizations.

Comments: DataCAD is by far the fastest software for creating 2D construction documents which is most important to most of us. Yes their 3D portion is falling behind but I never use it since we have Sketchup for that.

Horrible 3d

Comments: Best for 2d cad and very easy to learn. At one time a fast moving program but in the 3D world, last place.
