Cacoo is unique of its kind. Partially it repeats the functionality of many online graphic editors, but also it has some unique options. First of all, this is user's collaboration on the graphic projects. Users can work on the same project simultaneously, communicate with each other in the chat, invite another Cacoo users to collaborate on the current diagram. Cacoo is perfect for those who are working in the team. One can give the access to all participants, and then they could collectively create, modify, supplement, correct the graphic elements in real-time. For the free account holders, it is possible to share the project with 15 people. Cacoo interface is similar to the graphic editor window. There are buttons to add graphic elements (e.g. lines, various squares, rectangles, ovals, arrows, little pictures of computers, houses). Every element could be adjusted. For example, one can change the color, font style (italic, bold, underline), add shadow, select the location of multiple objects. When the project is ready, it is possible to share it with the other users, to save it as a PNG on the local drive. Web page embedding is also possible. Every Cacoo user has the personal page, where it is possible to see all the completed projects, to edit them, to get the direct links on diagrams, to leave comments. Besides, every project can be copied and then edited. Due to this the creating of similar projects could be a little bit easier.

Pros :

  • Good collaboration features, real-time collaboration.
  • A wide range of vector formats are supported for the exporting for paid users.
  • Great alignment tools and styling options.

Cons :

  • Cacoo is no more freeware anymore.
  • 25 sheets in the notebook limit for the free users.
  • Poor navigation tools, no navigation around the screen.
  • It's impossible to change existing shapes.

AutoCad...should be the perfect software for draft, generation of technical documentation, etc. In reality, if you buy AutoCad you will be fascinated by its simplicity and ease of use, its flexible user interface, keyboard shortcuts (or hotkeys)...lots and lots of positive features. To make it short: "AutoCAD is a backbone of the industry, a perfect for 2D projects absolutely world ace for this purpose, but go to the 3D and you will learn his dark side, everything is still possible just much much harder". If you keep it cool and work just draft you are the king but if you dare to go in dark side of the software you would be surprised how things are not going that fast, but never the less in 3D mode it is still good and stable.Just do not expect 3D performance that can be meet with other parametric software. Verdict : PERFECT 2D / AVERAGE 3D.

Pros :

  • Perfect user interface, with modern ribbon style, no overkill with icons and shortcuts, inside properties classical options that are very useful. Very very useful software very versatile for general and professional usage.
  • Projects have never bean so simple to execute.
  • Still the biggest thumb up is the possibility to do anything that you want without boring error messages and constraints, annotations that arrived from heaven, easy way for changing a vast array of properties in just one click, perfectly healthy sense of layers, etc.
  • Realty God gave software for everyday engineering.
    andnbsp;

Cons :

  • Hmm...if you need an easy to use powerful every day for every need software, then this is for you.
  • If you are the type of users that urges for 3D performance, easy 3D features, you want advanced easy to use wireframe capabilities, etc... STAY AWAY FROM THIS! This software can do all of this but at the cost, high cost if you ask me, you need a lot of time and effort to achieve a feature that can be done in a matter of seconds in 3D Parametric software like Catia or ProE or Inventor, etc..
  • Still good for everyday work.

Cacoo's user interface is easy to understand and users should have no problem finding their way around this application. A great selection of images and symbols are available and additional objects can be installed from the main website. Diagrams can easily be shared in a variety of ways including comments made on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. Cacoo is one of the few that has a PayPal option for payment. The application is stable, well designed, and provides a great deal of possibilities to those who need a diagram solution.
