I've been using Visual CADD since it's conceptiion, (and before that Autodesk's Generic CADD), and IMO it is a superior drafting tool compared to Autocad for structural engineering drawings. It's intuitive, easy to learn, very fast, and with the release of Autocad 14, (and LT 97), Autocad can now translate my .VCD converted to .DWG files flawlessly. I really do think it is a better CAD program than LT 97 which I also have and use occasionally. But the rub is, how long will Visual CADD be around, (and other low cost CAD programs)? As Dennis mentioned, Visual CADD has changed owners from Corel to IMSI, and IMSI already has a popular 2D CAD program. I plan on staying with Visual CADD as long as it is being supported, but I certainly couldn't recommend it to anyone because of it's uncertain future. Looks like Uncle Auto has us again! Larry Hauer p.s.- Is there anyone else out there stubborn enough to be using this program, (VCADD), other than Dennis and myself??
