My experience with the Architectural AutoCAD program is the best thing that happened in my professional and practical life, thanks to which I was able to earn a lot of money by drawing the architectural and construction drawings on it and then presenting it to clients and convincing them of it.
In my academic life as well, I learned it from my first year at the Faculty of Engineering, and I was able to distinguish myself from the students with my drawings and projects on AutoCAD. I still deal with him daily, the focus of my job in life, and I hope autodesk will always be in progress

Pros

In fact, there are many advantages in the AutoCAD program. I love it personally because it helped me a lot, for example, the ease of drawing on the program, starting to use commands, and also exporting files in dxf image to structural design programs, which saved me a lot of time

Cons

The program may be a little slow when opening or take some time to work. I hope to work on this and find innovative solutions for it

Designing without Autocad is Impossible!

Autocad is ideal for both big and small projects weither in a team or solo. It has all the tools necessary to design both in 2D and create a 3D Model making it crucial in handling projects from start to finish.

Pros

Autocad is the most convenient, easy to use, one stop software for drafting, designing and detailing your Architectural drawings. It is workflow efficient that alows you to easily edit, replicate and import works from previous designs and customize your projects to fit any requirements. Best of all, it allows you to publish with ease to what ever scale you require. And Its not CPU or Ram intensive so you can use it without buying an expensive high performance PC. Overall, its a designer's best toolkit.

Cons

Over the years, they tried to merge the 2D and 3D functionality together resulting in Bulky software that causes a huge lag on systems. It also had compatibility issues with old designs you had from previous software releases. And lastly, there were bugs when it came to importing fonts and measurement scales that were implemented by other designers when working in group works, but now it is great to see these problems resolved.

Outdate product that could use some big updates

Reviewed on 2022/01/04

Pros

AutoCad is straightforward and simple. It gets the job done but just not always in the most efficent manner.

Cons

The product freezes too much, or worse, shuts down if you ask too much of it - resulting in lost work, constantly (good look finding your backup file saved somewhere.)
Some tasks are backward, or shortcuts to make your work production easier are hidden in the depths of the menu bars, impossible to figure out.
The fact that you cannot change shortcut keys for certain tools is obscene, you need to essentially write code in order to do this.
The software is not made for the user, and it seems like they do bare minimal updates to move it along.

AutoCad is the best Architecture tool I've used. It saves a lot of time really. It is very convenient. It helps me a lot. This software is the future of Architects.

Pros

What I like about AutoCad is that I can design, model and put the exact dimensions of every little details. AutoCad is very convenient to Architect student like me because all the tools that I needed for design is in this software. Not to mention that they have a free trial for student which I'm very thankful about. It save a lot time and effort. Once you know your way on how to use AutoCad and what the tools are for, you can easily use the software faster than expected. Credits to the accuracy of its measurements and details it is a big help to quickly finish the project. I like how I don't need to worry about revisions because it can change easily without having to draw again. I also like how I can convert my work to other file formats such PDF and etc. Lastly, I'm very impressed in Cad 3D view because it is very realistic as it can simulate the layout of your design.

Cons

Not much just even though it is user friendly it really takes time to fully grasp its functions and details. Also, AutoCad requires to have a strong computer processing power in order to have a good experience.
