(Other stories by Andrew Mustun)
"QCad is an open-source 2D CAD system with mainly one goal: Providing a user-friendly CAD system for everyone. From the feedback I've got so far, I see that QCad is basically used by small companies, private users, students and schools. However, there are also engineers and project managers who need to visualise ideas but don't want to handle a complex CAD system."
"QCad aims to be more user friendly then other CAD systems. From initial installation to construction of complex drawings I wanted to make the program as easy as possible for the user."
"QCad comes with most features one needs to construct simple 2D drawings. It has not too much features and I think even an absolutely beginner isn't swamped by the buttons and menus. Nevertheless, you will get used to the various helpful small tools like the snapping functions and the powerful selecting tools."
