At last! :-(
A lot of people simply love PCadd. One of the best cad on Mac. But we would like a better support and more frequent updates.

It is over a year that V 8 has been released. What takes so long to come up here?
Is that the developer doing retention of information or MU being late?
Apart from this slight delay, Version 8 is native which adds a lot of speed and there are a few gadgets like transparencies and shadows (improved over V7) allowing a nice trendy touch to your drawings. Another considerable improvement is the DXF/DWG import plugin. Opening PC CAD drawings goes like a breeze! Among other various plugins, Wild Tools 9 is unavoidable for serious drawing.
One of the oldest CAD software for the mac at his best !

PowerCadd 7 is loaded with new features, among these scalable hatches, transparencies, shadowing, and new windows to make the interface easier.

It runs at about the same speed as PowerCadd 6.

There is a bug with the transparency feature that occurs when you try to duplicate an object with transparent attributes. but as soon as this is fixed, or I otherwise find out what I did wrong, I'll upgrade.

I really like this program.

As an architect Powercadd was and is the quickest and easiest cad package available at a bargain price - ok theres no 3D but I never use that what I need is to produce 2D drawings that effectively communicate my intentions to other quickly. Previous comments mentioned VW use Powercadd solely for two weeks and you never go back to Vectorworks, I can't remember the last time I launched VW now. Ace product pity for european users they make us use dongles though.

the product is great, but the dongle is a problem for us in third world countries.

It took me forever to download this just to find out that is just a bit less complicated to learn than CADintosh. Obviously, it is possible to make a very complex mechanical drawing with it - but how do I do that? VW's is still 12 light years ahead of all of these. Seems very proffesional and very complicated. No built-in help, all docs are online.

Only thing that's nutz about this great drafting program is that it is not OSX native!

PowerCadd _is_ OS X native. Just because it's a Carbon app doesn't mean it isn't native.

It's a great application, that has been around forever, from a company that knows its stuff in this arena.
