Pros and Cons from progeCAD 2010 Professional users

+13
Support by the software developer, resellers and an enthusiastic user community is of very good quality and highly appreciated especially when one gets into customization.
The stretch option does not work well if the selection window intersects lines which are deselected before stretching.
Excellent product, operates like "traditional" CAD, but with latest features. The trial version provide an excellent introduction.
Difficult to get answers sometimes; limited tech support; had to re-install to overcome one problem.
Affordable, easy to use and the "Help" is great. PDF conversion included in the program.
The most recent revision of progeCAD (10.0.10.8) is unstable and I have had to revert back to the previous version (10.0.6.23).
I would recommend progecad to anyone it is perfect fit for a very reasonable price.
ProgeCAD is less well-known (although that is changing) and is often unfairly disparaged by those who have invested in vastly more expensive CAD software.
It is a very good AutoCAD look alike and considering the cost worth putting up with the bugs.
Likewise when working with medium to huge illustrations it can crash.
The company is user friendly and has a sense of humor.
Producing final construction drawings. Provides and excellent 2D drafting software to complement our 3D building modelling software from Chief Architect and Sketchup.
The trial was a great alternative on an older machine as the requirements were not as demanding as AutoCAD.
It is cost effective and simple to understand. We can use this application for 2D drawing also for 3D.we can draft and make annotations using this.
The software is implemented in such a way that making the transition from AutoCAD to progeCAD was easy and painless.
Performs all the tasks I need at a much more attactive price. Customer support is much better as well, a bit plus.

Pros and Cons from Altium 365 users

+13
With the ability to request parts, review designs and share project information and only require an account and invite to the organisation is a great bonus.
It is a tad confusing and I still have difficulty figuring out how to solve my problems.
I enjoy the ability to seamlessly interact with my teammates on the design and implementation of our projects.
Accessing Company based File Libraries can be difficult.
I love the commenting, the ease of project sharing between colleagues and especially the ability to view the design files in a browser, without having to install Altium Designer.
I don't know the software well enough to have specific cons, but sometimes the BOM exporting process can be a bit weird and/or difficult.
Integrated with our old repository seamlessly. Loved the easy to understand interface.
Copying parameters is a bit difficult, but I guess I haven't discovered it yet.
I have used about a half a dozen design platform during my career and Altium 365 seems to have adopted the best features of all of them and combined them into one easy to use platform.
I can't do my job without Altium now. I appreciate the help I get from your specialists.
I like the completeness of the tools offered to design a professional PCB. I also enjoy the simple UI and cleanliness of the software.
We can all access the same library and share parts with ease.
It makes organizing different projects and revisions very easy. The BOM feature is very convenient in estimating BOM cost and the way the BOM can check for part cost online make it even better.
Altium 365 has a lot of features that increase design and layout capability. Use is intuitive and integration to existing designs is seemless.
Reviewing the CAD and designing is easy.2. Also it has integrated simulation tools to simulate3.
The option to live track components costs and availability is also a huge time saver.

Pros and Cons from H2X users

+15
Being cloud based and not being tied down to a specific desktop is very useful. The ability to output to Revit is a fantastic time saver.
Sometimes the error warnings may not be pertinent to the project for some reason, but there is not an option to hide or turn these off.
Like every program, there are tricks a tips to increase productivity and ease of use. The friendly and helpful staff are more than willing to help you adapt and progress with your operation of H2X.
Can be a bit 'clunky' at times, Unknown errors pop up from time to time. No confirmation of errors in design mode.
The software is easy to use and the Customer service is fantastic. They are ready to help with quick responses.
I know it's straightforward enough, but maybe it would be handy to have a handbook or a cheat sheet.
H2X has proved to be a useful and powerful tool to add to our office. The basic operation of the program is easy to adopt and the learning curve is reasonably linear.
However once that is understood it is very easy to use. It also sometimes has a tendency to lag which can be frustrating at times.
Excellent service and excited to see what the future additions will bring provide.
The ability to compare design methodologies at the click of a mouse is a great feature.
I started a trail version, got a wee demonstration from [SENSITIVE CONTENT] who was more than happy to help with any questions I had, in an extremely timely manner.
Good interface, its online based, customer support, the speed of use, the confidence it gives more junior staff.
Automatic cost estimation and bill of quantities is a fantastic and informative inclusion.
It is great that i can get a grad/intern to use it and get going relatively quickly, then i can come in and tweak to get the final answers, i don't have to go through the ins and outs of calculations.
So far incredibly postive, customer focussed, easy to communicate with, and invested in my success.
Being able to size and anayise pipework sizes and test pressures and pump duties required in real time has been very efficient and has also increased confidence in the design.
H2X was easily integrated into our business to fast-trak engineering processes we do within our field of hydraulics. The system is simple and easy to understand, and provides an array of information.
Integration with revit software will also reduce drafting lead times, and a bonus as its sized prior to input.

It consists of very powerful tools that is very easy to learn by any software engineers. One of the most interesting features of this software includes the ability to victories an image.
It is also a problem when you are having problems using the software. There is no significant user community online that has solutions to problems posted for others to learn from.
The most thing i loved about CorelCAD is its Printing methods are very impressive that includes orientations, lines ,printing size , color easy to save with different names.
The fact that I have found so many compatibility problems with autocad has been really a downside for me, even though corelcad is cheaper this was a big issue.
I love this software when vector graphics is in the title. I think this is the most amazing product to create vector images and graphics.
I can hardly find any flaws in this software. Most of the people are not familiar with this software due to which people have to face difficulties in collaborating with consultants.
CorelCAD makes your graphics come to live. The ability to vizualize your projects in 3D helps you determine what you need to do to make the designs absolutely to your liking.
It can crash a lot and make your computer really slow.
I like the software desktop and the possibilities to prepare any draft, have some solutions for any kind of request and also have the choice to give a print of it.
A big problem I have found with this software is with it's compatibility with autocad.
Overall the product is really good and I have not used a application like this before.
Also very hard to master and I've found a lack of help resources online ,compared to other ,similar programs.
I love CorelCAD's ability to let you quickly and easily sketch out a mechanical idea or instrument layout. The interface is intuitive and very customizable.
Great program for 2D drawing and sketching and fine for 3D drawing, especially if you are a budget-conscious user.
CorelCAD is a good choice for architects, engineers and other CAD professionals because of its price, extensive compatibility and productivity.
Great price but no online community or knowledge base for support when things aren't working right.

Pros and Cons from IronCAD users   
+15
It is very easy to design a new machinery in the 3D-scene. It is a great benefit that you can design a hole assy and afterwards select how you like to have your sumassy´s and details.
Initially, our designers had some trouble understanding the command structure.
The complementary IronCAD Compose is fabulous. The student licensing program was fantastic before it was turned into a subscription-based model.
There numerous minor niggles, too many to list in this survey. There needs to be a place where suggestions and problems can be posted easily.
There was rapid learning from the onset of this app and great intuition allowed great results in a short while.
I miss some specific plastics designing tools.
When given the opportunity to show others how easy it is to use, they seem to be quite impressed. Especially over parametric software.
With minor improvements to Drawing, Draft would be redundant. I am trying summarise the problems that I have, my trouble is time to accurately describe and suggest changes.
Inovate is a great CAD translator that gives me the ability to modify and rename parts as part of the translation.
The Triball and the fact that it's an innovative, non-history based modeller that supports both ACIS and parasolid kernels. The drag-and-drop standard as well as customizable catalogs.
IronCAD is generally great to use, I hope to see continuing improvements.
Ease of use and functionality. Very easy to design what I want.
I have earned a living using IronCAD. IronCAD has allowed me to compete and win.
When I have needed assistance the customer support team has been great.
Great especially for one off projects where a traditional parametric modelling tool can become cumbersome. Viewing, alignment tools are without equal in other software.
Very good to do some rapid prototyping and get ideas to simple 3d models.
Time saving and easy modification of design at an advanced stage. Caxa link and automation to issue BOM for production and costing.
The other great thing about IronCAD is the tech support. As a self taught machinist and inventor, putting thoughts to paper was easy but my experience with CAD got me stumped a few times.

Pros and Cons from Civil 3D users

I think it's really fun using Civil 3D because it can be connected to other Autodesk software, which helps me to switch accordingly when necessary in my projects.
There was many error messages in the 2013 version and It makes meaningless these messages. As well as, in this version there is an issue with google maps transferring.
Importing inputs, editing and setting capabilities, very user friendly, 3D and 2D display of the design, amazing in creating assemblies and daylights/side slops, having four work spaces.
I have observed some problem while making triangulation.
This tool is perfect for people who work with point clouds, streets, topographies and others. The software is intuitive and on the net there are thousands of forums with help to develop projects.
It's expensive and there is no option to buy this program. You can subscribe instead of buying.
3D modelling is useful to visualize concepts. The best part is all of this can be achieved in one file.
Civil 3D is very complicated to handle and weighs a lot, which makes it very difficult to work with low capacity computers.
From the ability to create surface models, alignments, corridors, dynamically change designs... there are plenty of reasons to love Civil 3D.
In my past organisation, I have used this software for modelling. I liked the interface and user friendly input module for designing as compared to MX Road.
This software is very successful in mapping large projects.
The features provided makes perfect data output.
Seamlessly integrates with other Autodesk products, as well as with third-party applications.5. Offers extensive documentation and support resources for users of all skill levels.
While it may training and is more expensive than some alternatives, it offers extensive resources and integration options to make the design process more efficient and effective.
I think it's really fun using Civil 3D because it can be connected to other Autodesk software, which helps me to switch accordingly when necessary in my projects.
There was many error messages in the 2013 version and It makes meaningless these messages. As well as, in this version there is an issue with google maps transferring.
Importing inputs, editing and setting capabilities, very user friendly, 3D and 2D display of the design, amazing in creating assemblies and daylights/side slops, having four work spaces.
I have observed some problem while making triangulation.
This tool is perfect for people who work with point clouds, streets, topographies and others. The software is intuitive and on the net there are thousands of forums with help to develop projects.
It's expensive and there is no option to buy this program. You can subscribe instead of buying.
3D modelling is useful to visualize concepts. The best part is all of this can be achieved in one file.
Civil 3D is very complicated to handle and weighs a lot, which makes it very difficult to work with low capacity computers.
From the ability to create surface models, alignments, corridors, dynamically change designs... there are plenty of reasons to love Civil 3D.
In my past organisation, I have used this software for modelling. I liked the interface and user friendly input module for designing as compared to MX Road.
This software is very successful in mapping large projects.
The features provided makes perfect data output.

The drawing options are very good and quality drafts are produced in very little time. The software is more powerful and stable than some other brands and the support staff in Australia is fantastic.
3D to 2D converter is moderate with few features missing in comparison with other softwares of this caliber.
It is easy to understand, the user interface is wonderful and is very easy to use. It gives an in depth knowledge of designing of products.
This caused so much lagging. I once waited 10 minutes just to turn a DFT file into a pdf because I wanted color.
What is best and easy i like it in solid Edge is 2D drawing cad tools , 3D tools , Selecting plane and surface and assembling.
If you do want to upgrade from say ST8 to ST11 or some thing like that, they make you pay the maintenance fees for the years you didn't use it. That to me is outrageous.
Solid Edge is Simple yet Advanced CAD Software, It is best for beginners because its interface is simple and features are also easy to learn. You can easily Perform 2D to 3D designs.
I think it is difficult for amateur users but you can learn it.
As an design engineering undergraduate, Solid Edge is the best designing software for part designings and the assemblies.
The software runs smooth and fast with effectively designing and Modeling parts and Assemblies. When Compared to other CAD Software, Solid Edge is more easy to use and learn.
I can quickly provide customer solutions, with great quality 2D drawings, 3D models, Video fly-throughs, machine animations, stress and displacement analysis and reverse engineering.
Solid Edge is reasonablly priced software. It has excellent integration with next high end software called Unigraphics.
Very useful and good for engineers. Making 2d and 3d drawings.
The software is great at importing and exporting other CAD formats.
Solid Edge has many good things like user-friendly and having a wide range of functions, but it actually I most liked was the integration with Siemens peripheral tools.
Solid edge in my opinion would be more successful if they lowered the price slightly, offered a 2 year free maintenance period, and then ask you as new features come out about a 1 off fee.
The integration and the easy way to import and export 3d models with a commom extensions.
We can create design in 2d and can do analysis of the design to avoid errors during production. They have a great customer support if we hav any issues.
