Una herramienta excelente para trabajo detallado y comunitario

What do you like best?

AutoCAD me ha permitido realizar trabajos detallados con las comunidades que residen en Distrito Capital, a través de planos hemos realizado levantamiento de el mobiliario urbano que presenta deficiencias desde las bocas de visita, hasta los postes y fachadas, con muchísima precisión y ademas con planos que tienen coordenadas, permitiendo la georreferencia y una análisis más completo de los datos recolectados.

What do you dislike?

Es bastante complejo de utilizar para personas que no tienen experiencia con CAD u otros programas de dibujo, al principio me costó muchísimo adaptarme, son demasiadas opciones y herramientas, y me parece que la interfase de impresión es realmente compleja y poco amigable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

El programa es realmente sorprendente y poderoso, pueden realizarse millones de cosas con él, pero debe poseerse una formación previa en el manejo de CAD porque sino se complica enormemente el uso y la aplicación del software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

AutoCAD nos ha permitido tener una relación más directa con la comunidad que los levantamientos de información y la resolución de problemas se hace directamente con la participación de los habitantes, además de ello puede trabajarse con información realmente precisa y muy detallada, lo cual es útil para solventar problemas específicos como en tanquillas y bocas de visita.

A great option for community work and plans

What do you like best?

AutoCAD brings the opportunity to work with plans with a high level of details you can even see the sidewalks and threes, so in the work the I do with the community with can work a lots of details to improve the quality of life of the residents. In recent field worl using plans of AutoCAD with can determined where are the sidewalks in poor condition and the trees that the municipilaty has to trimming, we can also determine where the municipality has to paint the streets and put new road signs. This software is awesome, because we can build maps and plans in multiple scales, to see and analyze the problem of the community from many points of view.

What do you dislike?

It is very hard to work with it if you are not an architect or engineer, the software has so many options and feature, I do a basic course and only use simple tools, like print, layout, design basic plans, add easy measures and add annotations, unfortunately, the software it is so expensive and I have to learn direct in the municipality I did not have the change to buy the software and learn on my own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an amazing software but you if you are not a professional of design or a similar occupation you have to do first a course or introduction to get the most of the software, or you only will use the software to do simple things like me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The municipality and my community make a great work together to diagnostic specific problems in my urbanization, so using AutoCAD with can analyze with high precision and details where are the main problems and where we have to start working to solve, and like the software work with high level of details we can set the problems even in sidewalks, buildings and trees and that was so useful for us, because the work is defined in a very specific way.

Autocad, a program for drawing and modeling

What do you like best?

Autocad allows you to draw architectural and urban planning plans quite easily when the program is already known, for basic learning there are no difficulties, but in an intensive 3 hours following an exercise example you can learn the use of high speed tools. It allows to have an accurate handling of the 2D drawing if the program is well used, obtaining the representation of proposals of pieces and even urbanisms. The more knowledge you have about the program, the greater the skill with which you can make the drawings and the use of simplified commands increases the speed of the use of the tools.

What do you dislike?

The main conflicts that the program has in my case is the change of the quick commands when the program is used in another language, for example, the use of CAD in English and then in Spanish; this forces the user to relearn the commands for a quick use of the program or to depend on the icons and tabs to achieve the desired functions. This is compounded by the conflicts that the program presents with the applications of the hatch, which causes the file to increase considerably in weight and produce errors, possibly even a "fatal error"

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Autocad at this time is the main program of use in the office for the preparation of planimetry of the projects, as much of the buildings as of the urban projects. This being used by most of the employees who must work in the area of architecture, urbanism, geographical location and planning representation.

Es un software que permite desarrollar mejor las ideas de la ingeniería

What do you like best?

Entre las distintas cosas que me gustan del Autocad es la simplicidad de los comandos, es decir si necesitas trazar una línea, buscas en los comandos la palabra "línea", si requieres calcular una superficie, buscas la palabra "area" y si deseas desarrollar un modelo en 3 dimensiones buscas el comando "extrude" para extender las polilíneas a superficies. El desarrollo de esta metodología ha simplificado la forma de expresar las ideas en la ingeniería, en especial en la rama que me desenvuelvo que es la rama de ingeniería civil

What do you dislike?

Lo que más se me dificulta es conocer las distintas opciones que posee cada comando y sus ventajas, ya que para un dibujo en particular, por ejemplo para el diseño de una vivienda, las opciones de snap en puntos medios, finales, intersecciones y perpendiculares son importantes, sin embargo para levantamientos de terrenos la opción que más he usado es la de puntos finales por la continuidad de las líneas al ser presentadas en un plano final. Por otra parte se encuentra la función de publicar que a veces no puedo dominar, aun cuando se establecen las condiciones de impresión de cada Layout sin embargo aun no sale al establecerse como un grupo de impresión

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo que inicien con este tipo de programa de AutoCAD ya que es uno de los formatos más sencillos de aprender y tiene todos los comandos necesarios para desarrollar las ideas que se requieran por ustedes como usuarios, se pueden llegar a hacer muchas cosas y la intención es llegar a tener un conocimiento tanto de lo que se está haciendo como del programa que se está manejando, desde el tipo de comandos hasta la metodología de dibujar para hacer un complemento ideal y llegar a unir esta herramienta con otros programas de la casa Autodesk

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

He resuelto dos problemas importantes siendo el primero de ellos los planos para mi tesis de grado de ingeniero civil en el canal de acceso al Lago de Maracaibo, Estado Zulia, los cuales incluyeron la batimetría, obras de protección de costas y espigón de armadura de rocas calizas, en el que se evaluó la posibilidad de recuperar y extender el mismo. El segundo caso ya en mi práctica profesional fue el diseño de las aguas potables, aguas servidas y de lluvias de un edificio de 2 alas de tipo turistico que se construyó en Higuerote, Estado Miranda.

Drawing to AutoCAD

What do you like best?

This software is the use for drafting and every drawing to need a draft. And another feauture is to import file and this file get a picture and trace out that picture and drawing. AutoCAD is a computer-aided software drafting program. It is used for a number of applications like creating blueprints for buildings, bridges and computer chips to name a few. AutoCAD is 2D and 3D computer aided drafting software application.

What do you dislike?

This software can not use to 3D modeling . It software upadrade are require.and other . And rendering Process almost equal to other software but user get very fast rendering.Errors in AutoCAD can be divided into two broad categories, the error related to the CAD file and error related to the Software itself. If the issues are related to corrupt CAD files then you can easily repair corrupt AutoCAD drawings using simple AutoCAD commands. ...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Which are use to drafting for best and not useful for 3D modeling.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I already told to rendering prossce slow that problem to slove and that is our business benefit.

AutoCAD in the architectural Field

What do you like best?

There's just nothing with this software that I don't like. Is being a long way since the first AutoCAD came out to the market and there has being a lot of improvement on its interface. With that being said, AutoCAD has positioned itself as the most common use software in the architectural field. All the tools that AutoCAD provide to its users are just easy to use and they explain step by step all you have to do in the command bar. This is one of the daily software I use since I was in school. What I like the most of AutoCAD I guess is the compatibility with the other Autodesk software and the possibility to create 3D models in a very accurate way. Its compatibility property makes AutoCAD a must have software because you can definitely use it at the very beginning of the project or just at the end, almost on every phase of any architectural project. Also, one thing to note is that almost everything you do in AutoCAD can be accomplished in 10 different ways, giving AutoCAD a lot more of use and knowledge for the user. In simple words, I highly recommend Autodesk AutoCAD to anyone who is in the design field, wheater you're an architect, industrial designer, or any other design related profession, AutoCAD is a good software to have, and know.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, everything is just perfect with this software, the only thing I would just say is the performance and compatibility with RAM and the memory you need free on your computer. Also, the updates from Autodesk are a little tedious and can slow down your performance but you then only need to downgrade your service packs and problem fixed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just buy it and learn it, it is a must have software

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a huge advantage to have AutoCAD in the architectural field because you do almost everything on the computer and just sketching ideas by hand
