OpenSCAD has the best tools I have ever used in a CAD drawing program. Makes it so much easier to draw for our clients

It's really easy to use. Predefined profiles are really good for beginners. Its free, so a lot of people make use of it. And there are plenty of youtube tutorials helping people to solve their doubts. Ironing is a really cool idea.

As I mentioned earlier, it is necessary to learn how to use it, a user with little programming knowledge can find it very difficult to learn how to use it.

The zoom and view tools can take a little getting used to at first. A click-and-drag pan tool would be awesome. The on-board mesh repair is a little clunky, but it's really not what this software was meant to do.
