"An interesting CAD implementation"

What do you like best?

nanoCAD appears to be a nearly-perfect implementation of AutoCAD

What do you dislike?

The fact that the software is sold and supported by a Russian firm that may have access to my data

Recommendations to others considering the product

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

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

To date, my company has not used nanoCAD in our business environment, but are keeping it updated for comparison with AUtoCAD

"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.

"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

What General-Purpose CAD solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!
