Note:

The main download is NOT a demo, but rather, the free, community edition:

Base Program = QCad Community Edition = Free

Base Program + Proprietary Add-ons = QCad Pro = Paid

The differences are outlined here:

To clarify further, from the application's download page (http://www.ribbonsoft.com/en/qcad-downloads-trial):

"The packages are bundled with free trial versions of the Pro add-on and the CAM add-on. The trial versions of these add-ons are not intended for production use but give you a chance to try before you buy.
The Pro and CAM add-ons terminate after 15 minutes. To continue to try these add-ons, you need to restart QCAD after this.
To uninstall a trial add-on, click on the button with an 'X' beside the add-on in the 'Trial' window.
To use the QCAD community edition without any proprietary add-ons, simply uninstall all trial add-ons."

Powercadd costs $995!!!!! Surely some developer can use Claris Cad as a model for a simple but inexpensive Mac app.

It is a very good software. Its free and works very well, when u get the sources and recompiles or get a dmg files with someone, because its is a GPL software.

This is a GPL software. So it is free! Is't only demo. If u go to QCAD home page u can get the source and u can recompile and then u can use without any restrintions. I use this in my computer and its is so good software. Like a AutoCAD.
Download the sources and recompile them.

If it was free i wouldn't say nothing, but as a shareware, it doesn't worth the money at all, and quite a lot of softwares can do better than this for almost the same price. as said in a previous comment, Cadintosh does really better for exactly the same price, there is also Doodle Cad that is completely better than this piece of soft unstable and unusable ...

I just tried it. Poor! Poor! Poor! The only simple AND easy to use CAD software was Claris CAD (running under Classic).
It had an inuitive menu (not that funny PC-like stuff in QCad), and all you needed for simple 2D tasks.

There is no port to OSX up to day. That makes me very sad, I would pay money for it!!!!!! But not any cent for QCad.

An appallingly incoherent instruction manual; where it is not explained what actions one has to do on the keyboard to have what effects.

Inconsistent in reactions.

Keep away.

why can no one come up with a decent mechanical CAD package for the mac? Vectorworks is mostly for architectural work, I know there is a mechanical part for it yet it's not that good.
Autodesk needs to get in gear to be the first to come over to OS X so that us mac users can throw away the pc's at school and work.

A very poor software, especially if compared with Cadintosh, and also with QCad 1, which was freeware. Caditosh has less problems than QCad 2 to open a file made with QCad 1. QCad 1 was OK as a basic drafting software, QCad 2 is an expensive and poor alternative to Cadintosh
