"Reliable CAD for 2D and 3D Design!"

What do you like best?

ZWCAD has advantages in it's interface, ZWCAD always keeps clear and simple with classical Windows style interface. This may not look so “pretty” but it fits most of the old end users needs, and also is much easier for new users to learn to use it.

A simple interface means that it doesn’t cost too much in system resources. With a lower configuration work station computer is enought to start working, resulting in lower costs.

ZWCAD provides almost 90% of other CAD’s functions, especially those frequently used ones taking less storage space. The program is just around 300MB, compared to others that my take over 4.5GB or more. This is an advantage again because can save the hardware and software resource for users to cut the cost.

What do you dislike?

Lack of support for other operating systems, ZWCAD only support Windows systems.

For the 2011 version, ZWCAD do not support Polysolid, and other 3D tools. Do not support Presspull command to create solid from any closed objects, faces or regions.

Do not support Extract Edges, which can gain the solid’s 3D profile.

And it depends on what you're working on, you feel the lack of lighting and photorealistic reproduction effects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Generally ZWCAD is still not as strong as AutoCAD, mainly reflected in the user interface, some advanced management features and expecially in 3D modeling functions.

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

The characteristic that caught our attention in the company is the cost-efficiency. You can buy ZWCAD with a relatively lower and affordable price with almost the same function as other CAD solution.

It meets the designers’ demand as well as saves budget for the company.

"Good CAD at an affordable price"

What do you like best?

I like that the interface is very similar to AutoCAD, you can even switch between Classic and Ribbons without effort. Works 98% like AutoCAD, the commands are basically the same, and includes 3D, all at a price lower than AutoCAD LT.

What do you dislike?

Basically none, for the price the application includes all that you need for CAD work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

JUst download a demo and try it by yourself, if you are an AutoCAD power user it might not have the advanced functions, but for a BAsic User it has what he needs

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

The benefit is solving the software buy for 10+ new CAD licenses at a lower budget, the transition is painless and the interaction with Autodesk products works fine.

What General-Purpose CAD solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"An Excellent Affordable CAD software"

What do you like best?

ZWCAD has the most of basic and advanced 2D functions for CAD projects, it mean all of we require to design. But the best thing is the performance and compatibility with Autocad.

It's important to highlight the price, this software costs about 20% of an Autocad license.

What do you dislike?

ZWCAD hasn't a lot of 3D functions.

The software don't has an automatically update informations, so if some patch be released (even it be about your current lincese), you have to acess the developer or distributor website, make the download and install the new version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, especially for engeneering projects.

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

Keep the company projects with a competitive price.

ZWCAD is a legal software and very affordable, so the company can be much more competitive once ZWCAD has an excellent pefromance.
