Pros: I love this software when vector graphics is in the title. I think this is the most amazing product to create vector images and graphics. It is not hard to learn at all, as all the tools are pretty easy to use. The ability of "vectorize" an image automatically is one of the biggest features, as you literally have to click a button to convert a pixel image into vectors so that you can scale it or edit as much as you want.

Also, I think Corel Draw has improved its software in the last 3-4 years. Tools are easy to find and gives you the opportunity to create templates.

Cons: The only thing I consider that needs more improvement is the "snap" and dimensionality matter. I think that setting rulers are not enough to get points nor dimensions accurate.

Overall: The way you can convert an image to vectors in less than 5 minutes.

Pros: CorelCAD is the most wonderful product of creating vector images and graphics. It consists of very powerful tools that is very easy to learn by any software engineers. One of the most interesting features of this software includes the ability to victories an image. It is really helpful for both 2D and 3D designs. It provides good opportunity of excellent drafting package for small sort of business or projects. Another advantage of this software is that it is less expensive so people can easily buy this software.

Cons: I can hardly find any flaws in this software. Most of the people are not familiar with this software due to which people have to face difficulties in collaborating with consultants. After overcoming initial phase of frustration, it trains the user with excellent design skills.

Overall: I have had a wonderful experience with this great software.

Pros: this application helps a lot when it comes to any design, very useful to work in 2D since it has cursors for the two axes (y and x), excelnete when designing 3D tools, such as rhombuses, tubes, squares, others

Cons: At the time of adding some bars is a little dicifil, the cost of the license is very high. Since it should be for guys who are just starting to get into the design area

Pros: Great 100%! I'm too happy with CorelCAD's way of working, the services it provides are very varied and cover so many things, for any type of client .. in terms of treatment it does not leave any bad touch, it deals with dealing with the client as should be, giving the attention and resolving every doubt or inconvenience that is presented .. Nothing like the versatility that the company presents and I am sure that anyone who works with this page will be happy with the services offered, I have no doubt about that ...

Cons: It really is worth working with CorelCAD, it is very effective in each and every one of the services it offers, I have no complaints about this company, only very good comments and criticism since their treatment and services seemed very good and very accommodating to me. the customer, something that is not appreciated in all companies ... I recommend it 100% I have no doubt, it is worth working with this company, if you are looking for a company full of versatility that cares about its customers and is practical , they have found it, I am sure that it is one of the best companies in this field ... I am happy to have worked with CorelCAD. VERY GOOD!

Pros: The Print Configuration Manager in CorelCAD allows you to save print settings for specific layout sheets. All advanced printing options, including paper size, scale, orientation, color matching parameters, line widths and many others, can be saved in configurations under individual names, then used in various files and projects. The convenience of such an approach is difficult to overestimate!

Cons: No, this software has no significant flaws. And I'm happy to talk only about the good sides of the software.

Pros: CorelCAD is a mandated software for most design-related related degrees from where I am at. The reason for that is how good the program is at what it does .The customization options are endless and I like that there is only a one time fee ( a very reasonable one at that ) ,compared to having to pay monthly licensing charges .

Cons: The plethora of options is overwhelming at the beginning .Very hard to learn to properly use ,however if you can overcome the initial frustration it really enhances your design skill set .

Pros: I found CorelCAD easy to use because of the AutoCad knowledge and experience I have. It is an affordable software for personal projects and small businesses. It can be use by any 3D drafter for architectural and structural design, either beginner or advanced level. It has compatible files with AutoCAD which is great to share with others.

Cons: I am a casual user of CorelCad and so far it was pretty good for the projects I worked on, so I don't have anything negative to say about this software.

Good drafting package for small projects.

Pros: As far as functionality and features go, CorelCAD is a good alternative to AutoCAD. It is much less expensive for the small office or self-employed architect. It does pretty much everything that AutoCAD can do and is fairly easy to learn to use.

Cons: One big issue is that it is not widely used. This makes it hard to collaborate with consultants, etc. who use AutoCAD. Yes, it can be done but it is not a seamless as it is when everyone is using the same software. It is also a problem when you are having problems using the software. There is no significant user community online that has solutions to problems posted for others to learn from. You are pretty much on your own.

Overall: Great price but no online community or knowledge base for support when things aren't working right.

Pros: CorelCAD is looking to be near CAD software, and it's close, has a friendly desktop and is very easy to learn. It has issues to open other CAD files, AutoCAD for example, but other wise is a very decent software, considering the needs of a design software

Cons: But is a non reliable software, at least for a professional that need to work on the station about 9 - 12 hours, with a crashing software is not a productive software, needs a lot of work to be done. There's some other issue that it need to print directly to a printer, is better to review the job done during the designing phase

Overall: The benefits is that we're searching for other software alternatives to AutoCAD and been doing some test to other CAD software on the market and we found CorelCAD as an option

Pros: Once I got past getting situated with the software, I was satisified with the value vs. features of this software. The interface is pleasing.

Cons: I did not like the learning curve that came with learning this software. After using AutoCAD and Blender, etc, I can say that this software could be simplified a bit to gain an edge over competitors. Right now, it feels more like an underpowered, inexpensive AutoCAD. If that's what you want, great, but if not, you may want to consider a larger investment for something a little more solid. Still like this software.

Pros: For someone who is accustomed to working with 2D and 3D design in CAD softwares corelcad is actually a really good software that is easy to learn and pretty straightforward. It's cheaper than other cad programs.

Cons: It can crash a lot and make your computer really slow. Also given the fact that the most commonly used CAD software is autocad and that importing a project from said program to corelcad ussually is problematic this is a huge downside.

Overall: For someone on a budget and who wants a solid CAD drawing software (not perfect), corelcad is a great software.

Pros: In my opinion CorelCAD is the best program for vector designs ,especially if you factor in what you do on there with the final printed out product you get . The composition options are boundless and the interface is fairly user friendly once you get the hang of it .

Cons: You have to pay a large fee to use the program's services ,but at the end of the day it is worth it . Also very hard to master and I've found a lack of help resources online ,compared to other ,similar programs .

Pros: I like the software desktop and the possibilities to prepare any draft, have some solutions for any kind of request and also have the choice to give a print of it. I didn't expend too much time to learn how to use the commands and to make my firsts drawings

Cons: Well as a know how to print any plan, the way I found to deliver my project is very difficult, and some times I don't have the time to expend it on only a print several times the same drawing

Overall: I have as a benefit some approach to the way of thinking of a CAD software and giving some buildings ideas to finish some geographical works to my clients

Pros: Corelcad is a good replacement software for autocad, it basically can do everything autocad can do and it is much cheaper. Working with it has been a good experience.

Cons: A big problem I have found with this software is with it's compatibility with autocad. Autocad is the most used cad software and the fact that I have some problems when loading autocad files on corel cad and visceversa is terrible.

Overall: The fact that I have found so many compatibility problems with autocad has been really a downside for me, even though corelcad is cheaper this was a big issue.

Comments: For a small cost of the system offers a full-featured application for two-dimensional computer-aided design tools modeling three-dimensional objects. However, to use the software to fully still need to have engineering knowledge .
