Hi all

I am using Qcad for several task: one is to redo all my drawings done in Excel of my house renovation into proper layered technical drawings, I also use it to produce drawings of profiles that can be made on a router table as library components which can then be assembled in a drawing in order to visualise the finished product and anything else that I want to keep accurate data for, remember a drawing can replace a thousand words.

all the best Roy

I work in the field of 2D and 3D architectural design, mainly with AutoCAD and Artec software.

It looks like I'm not the only one who tried LibreCAD at first and switched to QCAD then. And I have to say I'm glad about a more polished drawing interface, a dark theme of the program and I am happy with the expanding feature set. Well done, thanks for your work.

Best regards.

I use have used autocad 2010 LT and have previously used R14 to generate architectural submittal drawings for div 8 and 10 materials ranging from toilet compartments, HM frames, Cubical curtains, room signage, and such for the better part of 30 years. I am trying to transition to QCAD to fulfill that need. I have tried LibreCad, BRL cad, TurboCad etc and have found them all lacking. The only thing I struggle with on QCAD is the learning curve to accomplish the same goal I achieve with Autocad. The functionality is there, the staff support is there, It is just a personal learning curve of differences between the two. I am excited about learning QCAD as I feel it is equal or surpassing autocad. I will just be a needy fellow in the forum until I grasp the differences and nuance of qcad
