"Nonocad is taking over"

What do you like best?

Nonocad is very easy to use, its free to use by anyone who wants to design and model things. The user interface is easy as well to use. It's compatible with other softwares. And they have a good technical support when you need it.

What do you dislike?

Some of the onocad products are not free. You have to registers i even for the one that is free by generating a key, which is kind of stressful.

Sometimes it can just stop working. Even when you uninstall and reinstall at different times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Noticed is a very good grade cad and design tools with beautiful and easy interface. It has an open API which makes it free for all.

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

I use it for 2d design work and rendering. It let me creat, edit and make-up any kind of 2d drawing. I realise that you can use it for any purpose in respect of 2d drawing.

"Increase your level of designs with the structures of a large industry."

What do you like best?

A remarkable improvement in terms of designs of structures and techniques, I love that this software is in a constant technological advance and every time there is a better change with more tools, it is easy to use thanks to its integration of lines and the API help you build automated tasks.

What do you dislike?

It is a little difficult not to use the option of dynamic blocks and dynamic entries since the basic structure is easily messed up and I would like it to have a layer editor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It may take you a while to get used to using this digital construtor due to its diversity of table editing options but it is very easy to learn to use.

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

It corrects one of the biggest problems in order of structures thanks to its lots of objects and tools where, once finished, the plane can be used both in two-dimensional and three-dimensional.

What General-Purpose CAD solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Forget about Autocad"

What do you like best?

Ease of use, fast, intuitive, practical, POWERFUL, great interface, usually people are looking for a decent option to replace autocad; but NanoCAD is much better.

The free version is the best of all free CAD software, and the pro version is even better than the autocad itself, there is no important function in autocad that this software does not have.

What do you dislike?

Some minor problems, bugs or glitches aren't fixed until a new big update, there are some commands that I used to use in autocad that are not found or have different abbreviations

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stop looking for free CAD softwares, this is the best free option and the PRO version is much better than autocad.

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

I can do all my plans and designs at a very low cost compared with all its advantages, and if you are low in money, the free version is good enough to withstand.

"Upgrade of AutoCAD:NanoCAD"

What do you like best?

NanoCAD is an upgraded version of AutoCAD. The user interface is very user friendly and it is similar to the AutoCAD. SO the uesr who knows the AutoCAD can easily be familiar with NanoCAD. There is a facility of muliple image formats like jpg, png, bmp, tif and many others. NanoCAD offers services like 2D drawing objects, canvas, command line interface. The free trial version of NanoCAD is available for beginners.

What do you dislike?

No proper plugins facility is there in the NanoCAD software. Some of the commands which are available in AutoCAD but not in NanoCAD. Though trial version is free the user have to register for the key. This NanoCAD softwware requires lot of CPU processing power nad the PRO version is very costly..

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend those AutoCAD users who are not switched on NanoCAD as it is upgrade of AutoCAD.

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

I used NanoCAD for 2D designing of house plans as it is faster compared to AutoCAD so it saves time and efforts.

"Quick and Easy Digital Drafting Software"

What do you like best?

What I like most about nanoCAD is how easily accessible the software is for anyone to access and use. Its a free program that can be used to quickly draft digitally. In this technology driven world it is imparative to have quick access to tools to share designs and ideas. Because this product is free, it can be used in conjunction with a pricier option like AutoCAD if you need to draw up a quick diagram. Later you can import it into whatever software is your favorite choice. It can be a work saving option if you do not have access to the paid software like AutoCAD

What do you dislike?

What I dislike most about this software nanoCAD is that it is not as full of features as AutoCAD. The industry is ran by AutoCAD and to compare this as a competing software is a little bit of an overstatement. It is just not as powerful of a tool but can be when used as a tool for a more powerful tool like AutoCAD.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of its easy and availability. Use it as a back up software when in need.

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

The biggest business problem I am solving with nanoCAD is the problem of time and efficiency. This is really a life saving tool. It is a helpful communicator between different software's and is free! Its also a great option of anyone who wants to simply learn how to draft on a computer without the commitment of purchasing a product only companies can afford.

"Best CAD tool so far "

What do you like best?

I like the nice interface of nanoCAD. All tools for drafting and designing are very sharp and easy to use. Mechanical Designs are very easy to make using nanoCAD. Making complex building structures is one the amazing use cases of nanoCAD

What do you dislike?

There is absolutely nothing that I don't like nanoCAD but NanoCAD pro trial should be provided for more time because it has lots of features and needs more time to explore it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is always a room of improvement in every software. more features can be added

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

2D modeling, and designing. We have MacBooks and we can't use it on MacBook because dmg files are not available on the website.

"The best free 2D cad software"

What do you like best?

If you are accustomed to Autocad but need a free alternative for your work, nanoCAD is in my opinion the best software you can have. Its interface and way of work is very similar to Autocad 2008 (The last which had the old interface). Very powerful 2D CAD tool!

What do you dislike?

It is free but you have to register for a key, however I know this is a minor issue. It also do not have so much tools as Autocad and written commands are not the same.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just use it! It's easy, but I recommend to take the quick start guide to be more productive.

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

Simple 2D drawings for electronic components.

"Simple 2d drawing program"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to learn to operate. I use it to make truss and wall panel layouts in paper space and on different paper sizes. It is very easy to learn and use.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if it had state of the art toolbars like lots of the industry programs have.

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

I do not know what software we would use if we did not have nano cad. The company is very easy to work with, and was also willing to work with us to help us meet and achieve our goals.

"Design Reliability of nanoCAD"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to use and it is better than AutoCAD, solid edge etc. I was very excited when I discovered this program. I was surprised by the reliability of this software. It is easy to use for beginners

What do you dislike?

The biggest issue is with the license not being transferrable from your old to new computer. Another con is the slowness when rendering certain layouts, probably due to single thread CPU usage.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have to look in to the licensing option as per user not computer locked

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

Used for designing small building components, valves and 2D design of structures

"Great and user friendly new UI. They have good and frequent update."

What do you like best?

They have a good and frequent update. The toggle switch is my favourite. you can access various formats of drawing files. the new multileader is powerful and quick. The 3d polyline feature is also interesting and helpful.

What do you dislike?

The background is dark and quite tiring if used for a long time. the software changes the layout so sometimes it takes time to adapt to the new updates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There could be a PDE implemented for a larger team to use and version saving options through which we can retrieve our previous work.

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

Projects in developing new car parts.

"An interesting CAD implementation"

What do you like best?

nanoCAD appears to be a nearly-perfect implementation of AutoCAD

What do you dislike?

If your company requires an AutoCAD clone, and is not working in the government field, nanoCAD might be a reasonable alternative, as it doesn't require subscriptions
