I like AutoCAD most because Autodesk has provided a product that has a very customizable interface.

Likes : I like AutoCAD most because Autodesk has provided a product that has a very customizable interface.

Dislikes : Though AutoCAD is great at offering a 2d drafting tool, it still lack user friendliness especially when it comes to 3d modeling.

Problems & Benefits : I'm able to use AutoCAD to quickly draft a 2d design when it comes to providing floor plan layouts. Since AutoCAD is the defacto standard for over 25 yrs, everyone in the construction & engineering industry uses this tool to share & communicate their designs.

Tools/Features Used : With a mixture of typing out one letter commands, picking commands from a graphical toolbar/ribbon & selecting entries on floating windows, I'm able to quickly access the many commands AutoCAD offer to complete my drafting.

Switched to AutoCAD? No

AutoCAD Headed in Right Direction? Yes

Recency of Experience : More than 10 years

Recommendations to Others : I highly recommend AutoCAD as the automated drafting program of choice for all who would like to use a computer aided program to draw up their designs.

Other Comments : Autodesk now only sells AutoCAD on a monthly, quarterly or annual subscription purchase model. You can no longer purchase the product once to use the license forever.
