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.

All put together, this new version of Xara Designer Pro X builds upon the earlier release, and adds more features to deliver a compelling release. A very attractive upgrade pricing option makes this a no-brainer for existing Xara users, and for everyone else, this is a product that certainly needs to be explored closely.
