I too have been a Claris CAD user for many years, designing many many yachts from 8' through to 100' and Claris CAD was certainly a great program to use.

I switched to RealCADD about three years ago because my new mac's wouldn't run classic any more and I also wanted to transfer files to DXF format for CNC cutting of parts (I used to do this via Claris Translator).

Ok - so RealCADD has a few glitches and it is obviously slightly different from ClarisCAD. But one has to spend time learning any new program if one is to use it in depth and professionally.

I have found it to be an excellent replacement for ClarisCAD, possessing many excellent features that ClarisCAD did not possess – the most important of which for me is the ability to draw parallels from polyline curves.

And the developer is very amenable to adding new features if requested – a huge improvement over ClarisCAD, where one had to wait for a new version to come out (didn't often happen).

Maybe the earlier versions that got bad reviews were not so good as the present version – but the current version is excellent and I can work faster and much more accurately that was possible with ClarisCAD.

Overall a great program at a reasonable price.

I find RealCADD an excellent replacement for ClarisCad, which I used for many years, both as a boat builder and a designer. It has many advantages over Claris Cad and very few disadvantages. It is still weak drawing bezier curves and NURBS – I am hoping that the developer will address that soon though!

RealCADD is at v 4.31 now and there are considerable enhancements over 4.20 – so download the latest version. You can download 4.30 from the RealCADD site and 4.31 from the forum (see my post "More align ..."
