Viacad questions

Postby mitchw123456 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 1:35 am

My table should be showing up here in the next couple weeks. The only program that I actually have any type of experience on is sketch up. From prior searching I've pretty much concluded sketch up sucks for any type of cutting. So, my search for a reasonably priced cad program started. I did not like Inkscape much as it seemed like way overkill and was too difficult to do simplistic drawings on. I've played with several different trial versions (draftsite and others) of different programs and seem to like Viacad the most. Its easy to use and seems like a decent program for someone without a clue. It looks like practically no one on here uses it or at least they don't talk about it much. Basically, I'm just looking at some insight on Viacad from users (or ex users) if its worth the money or if there are better programs out there for the money that I'm just missing out on. I'm not really wanting to spend an absolute ton on it and not of fan of the subscription type programs.

Pretty cheap and lots of tutorials but I'm a fan of Vectric products anyway.
