Given the upcoming change in the CAD market, we've been experiencing a surge in new membership -- so I thought I'd post an invitation here.
If you are a provider, feel free to post all new product and vendor materials in the promotions area and please do provide industry perspectives/counsel in discussions -- users and buyers certainly want to learn from you.
If you are a user or buyer, feel free to post your experiences, questions, or needs in the discussions area -- all others certainly want to help and learn from you. My overall perspective on this market is that you should and can be very demanding -- there are several very capable alternative/affordable CAD solutions in the market today.
My own recommendations for top criteria in seeking an affordable solution are: 1. Must provide 100% of the functionality that you need (and perhaps more), 2. Must scale to meet your design complexity/size requirements, 3. Must provide complete compatibility with AutoCAD/DWG, 4. Has made hundreds/thousands of customers like you successful, and 5. Is an organization that you trust for ongoing innovation and support for the future.
Again, I believe many strong solutions/vendors exists today and this group is committed to helping you find that match. We look forward to your thoughts!
