What do you like best?

qCAD es una herramienta para diseño en dos dimensiones (CAD), de licencia software libre con una interfaz muy similar a las alternativas propietarias.

Es una gran ventaja que no necesita de una fuerte inversión para ser utilizada, ya que es gratis. Podremos hacer desde diseños simples para usuarios noveles como pequeñas piezas y sus vistas en alzado, planta y perfil, hasta los diseños más complejos para los más expertos, como planos de casas, edificios y otras estructuras.

Para ello, contamos con una de interfaz de usuario intuitiva y potente. Disponible para todos los sistemas operativos actuales desde su página web.

Permite tener varias pestañas abiertas a la vez con diferetnes proyectos, facilitando mucho la gestión simultanea de tareas.

What do you dislike?

A veces se queda congelado cuando tiene mucha carga de trabajo

También tiene una desventaja más, y es que no te permita hacer renderizaciones para objetos en 3D.

Aprender a moverse por todos los recovecos de opciones del programa requiere de mucho tiempod estudio y aprendizaje.

Por lo demás, no le veo pegas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es una herramienta muy útil para realizar diseños 2D de forma precisa y basado en un manejo sencillo, y además GPL.

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

Qcad nos ha permitido diseñar los planos de algunas de las piezas que necesitamos imprimir con la impresora 3d en plástico para proteger algunos aparatos de nuestro taller. Las hemos podido hacer a medida y ha salido mucho más barato que si las hubiéramos encargado. Ya que no podiamos encargarlas ni pagar por una licencia propietaria para un programa CAD comercial.

"A savior for projects"

What do you like best?

As is so simple and easy to set up it could be a savior for when such thing is needed, can actually work stuff from outside normal CAD usage and desing more than my math or drawing classes and go a bit further with it, got options to work both in metric and imperial system that is really appreciated as most of the time, quick CAD programs go only with metric

What do you dislike?

Unlike other CAD's i've tried so far, this one becomes way simplier than others. It could be quite annoying to deal with it if you have prior experience with other software

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not the best on the market, but is a really good solution when there's a need for a fast and really resource friendly CAD

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

Fast solution to CAD requirement, easy design on the go, low requirements and really efficient usage or resources

What General-Purpose CAD solution do you use?

What do you like best?

can be found in Spanish, it has Menu bar, Toolbar, Drawing bar as lines, circles, dimensions, Status bar, has layers windows

What do you dislike?

it is only developed for 2D, and to be able to edit it must be in dxf files

Recommendations to others considering the product

I advise the use of polylines, since the polyline will allow to optimize the laser tracing, in addition the polylines allow combining concatenated segments from nodes

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

create technical drawings, such as plans, also used in layers system.
