Once I tried to draw my own home's plan but could not manage software requires a lot of time and patience.
It manages extremely large projects with exact measures and details. It gives availability to work in 3D Space. Cloud function helps to get advantage to work as a team.
It needs strong computer resources. Without qualified tutorials, it is like impossible to work on this program. Besides the price is so expensive.

It’s a very powerful tool and professional grade. The software’s capacity and presence, in the creative industry, provides an alleviating affect to its audience and users.
I have a lot of flexibility in terms of the mediums I can ease into and AutoCAD truly helps in that aspect. It delivers the workspace to bring a flat design to life in a way that most dimensional design products don’t. One thing for certain is the application’s versatility in making the space feel less technically tedious and more straightforward. The functionality is very simple and gives its user the chance to apply their personal preference into the art board without losing resolution and methodology.
My only note of interest would be the application’s need for dimensional guidance. While it provides a very nice approach to freeform, it lightly loses touch of having a snap to grid like essence about it more than a majority.
With autocad I learned to design with a computer, I learned to model, I learned CAD, it was my initial school.
Working in AutoCAD is much easier than working on paper. We saved a lot of time and it's much simpler than that. Doing it by hand can be tedious and we also have to consider our prolixity when it comes to doing it on a sheet.
As Autodesk is launching new versions, they do not change much with respect to the previous ones so that the user does not have to update to something completely unknown. The latest versions are very similar, except that they add new small functions.
The configuration to print a drawing in AutoCAD in different formats is very easy. There are many formats included and we can adjust colors, margins, layers, among many other aspects.
AutoCAD has been linked to multiple platforms, with the benefit of being able to export and import files of all kinds. For example, we can bring an image or a block to the software, among other applications.
The main disadvantage is the high cost of the program, since the license costs a few dollars.
Knowing how to use the software fully requires a lot of time since there are many functions that are not so well known, and even that they are of little application, since they are very specific.
It requires a very powerful computer to work with the latest versions (especially in 3D). At least 2GB of RAM, 2GHz processing speed, and a space greater than 100GB on the hard drive.
If we make an object in 3D, with many details, brightness settings, brightness, details of materials, for the best commercial computer we have, it usually slows down a lot. There are better software to make 3D drawings that are more sophisticated, with more functions and that do not slow down so much when working with a very heavy file.

There is a reason that AutoCAD has been the market leader for decades. The software is the gold standard. The software keys getting better and easier to use with multiple ways to use the software (online, desktop, mobile). The price can be prohibitive for those who only have occasional usage like myself.
The online version is quick and easy to use. They offer a by month use plan which is great for my occasional use. The integration with AutoDesk's other software is useful. The UI is clean and intuitive. New features and updates keep the software fresh and on the cutting edge.
The software is expensive for my needs and navigating the various licenses and options can be a bit challenging.

I opened it, learned some design hotkeys and made some basic designs, but by the time I learned all that, as a part time business owner the 30 day trial didn't give me enough time to really consider the product. I wish there was a free version, no matter how limited, so that I could take my time to familiarize myself with the program more and perhaps try a 30 day upgrade and then make the full decision to buy. For a small company its not a cheap product
Powerful program made for and by industry professionals
Has many tools available for you to use
versatile and usable in different fields
Not user friendly at all for a beginner
Trial length of 30 days doesnt give a beginner or even someone lightly familiar with CAD to even begin to use the program in an real way or familiarize themselves with it to see if they like it really.
