Comments: It offers everything that is much more expensive competition. Working with drawings is efficient thanks to additional applications or proprietary commands. In order to convince the crew to work for themselves in this program.

Pros: It is an excellent price-quality ratio. The most modern solutions, quick support, quick updates. this is something to pay attention to. It's something that you need every day at work and in business.

Cons: Typo translation, it bothers me. Such a good product should take care of details. This applies to all interface languages except English.

Comments: Simply wow, true value for money.

Pros: Minimal, almost no learning curve to shift from Autocad to ActCAD. Very much Autocad like interface, infact I have arranged all my tollbars, ribbons same as Autocad so virtually no difference.
Also forward and backward portability of files, from Autocad to ActCAD and vice a versa irrespective of which version of Autocad file is saved.

Cons: Initial configuration, installing is bit difficult or cumbersome. bit slower than Autocad (performance is dependent of hardware too so not a show stopper) but can be worked out by optimising hardware and software interface. I am sure ACTcad team will work that out.

Comments: I have been using this software for few months for now & having very good experience overall. Mainly I have work in customized block library which I got here & that too without any extra expenses. Also it is a light weight software so can be used on my simple Desktop PC also.

Pros: - Plug & play if you have already used other 2D CAD softwares.
- Vast Library for blocks.
- Ease of use & user friendly
- Can easily switch the license to other workstations without technical support.

Cons: - Sometimes tend to slow down.
- Initially New commands were hard to find because there are many of them.

GOOD CAD PLATFORM.

Comments: Good for existing AutoCad users. They have one more option available now.

Pros: This is very nice and user freiendly software. Very nice alternative CAD software at very reasonable price compare to other software. Most of the Cad user’s need are satisfied in this software. Strongly recommended for student and professionals.

Cons: Courser speed is little slow. Need some improvement related to LISP loading. Also need some improvement for compaitability w.r.t other existing Cad software so that user can check the data in two different software to get more confidence of using ACTCAD.

Vendor Response

by ActCAD on 22/11/2018

Hi Alpesh,

Thank you for your valuable review and comments about ActCAD Software. If you are not using ActCAD 2019, I suggest you to download and install the trial version. Please try to switch off Hardware Acceleration to get smooth cursor movement. It also depend on the Graphic card and its latest drivers.

Regarding LISP, yes we do not support 100% functions. However, please send us an email to "[email protected]" with your issues, we will consider them for future additions.

What do you mean by compatibility improvement? We support 100% dwg/dxf file formats. Please send your suggestions, we will take them up immediately if there are any gaps.

Thanks & Regards,
M.M. Krishna
Director
ActCAD International
