Pros: Its price is more accessible to other competitors and its tools are very easy to use, in addition to its high compatibility with other files.

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.

Comments: I have been going to school for kitchen and bath design and am an artist as well. In school we have been given the opportunity to use CorelCAD. It is easy to navigate and has a lot of great tools. I am able to create different designs easily. I think this will be helpful in both kitchen and bath design as well as my Art.

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 . But for those who work in the design bureau - a great helper application in the automation of the design of two or three-dimensional objects.
