"Underatted and a great value."

What do you like best?

I like the work they have done with the interface. Unlike Autocad, the way the environment works requires a lot less interactions with menus and commands. Just something like drawing multiple lines, moving or rotating an object is as simple as clicking the mouse.

Another cool feature is it makes a good multi-platform file viewer/converter. The conversion are not 100%, but are generally 90% if the drawings did not use an automation package.

If you like the Autocad commands, they have a version that operated like Autocad LT. However you can still use the features native to the product.

What do you dislike?

Some object properties are not intuitive. especially the TEXT properties. Other than that, this product has a learning curve like any other product.

Also, when doing a drawing that is going to be converted, it takes a while to learn what techniques to use to make a smooth export. Especially the way the native program does layers. Not really a bad thing, but a limitation if you make Autocad drawings in Turbocad

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind as a standalone package, this product is 100%. Conversions require more work and are about 90%

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

I have mostly used this package for Electrical/Electronics design. The tools make it easy to convert the drawings to what ever format my customers need.
