cad lite vs full cad

Post by jakedog » Thu Aug 27, 2015 8:08 pm

I currently have cad lite, is the full cad upgrade worth the money? Anyone done the upgrade from one to another? Thanks

I know the full has nesting and I think a trace feature, those two alone aren't worth the $500 plus to upgrade

if you want a good trace software (i have had bad luck with inkscape) get corel x7. I got it off ebay for $65. It has an "quick trace" feature that does most of it for you. It's not perfect by any means but it helps out a lot. I'm just breaking the ice with it, but corel is very powerful software.

You can also import an image to torchmate, then manually trace it. I've done that before.
