I looked for a cheap 2D-CAD solution for my private use. First tried LibreCAD and it was okay, so I used it for some time. But performance was not so good as I wish. So I looked again and found QCAD. Performance is much better and afaik it use the same codebase as LibreCAD, or better said, LibreCAD use the same codebase as QCAD. But QCAD has been much more often updated as LibreCAD. So I stay with QCAD. Why only four stars? At the moment I don't want to pay for the pro version. So I've to remove some plugins manually from the App, otherwise it stop working after 15 minutes. So, please make a download file that contains only the community edition, too.

It's a great CAD-option for mac users. Easy to learn, intuitive and stable. Works just fine. I would recommend it to everyone who needs 2D cad. I am really happy with it.

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: http://qcad.org/en/qcad-documentation/qcad-features

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.

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.
