"True enables me to collaborate with others who use different versions of autocad software."

What do you like best?

I like that I can take a CV3d v.2018 drawing and save it down to a 2013v drawing for a client that may not have CV3d or the 2018v.

What do you dislike?

I wish it had more tools built into it and allowed for some design in it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a shot as there is nothing to lose and at the moment there is nothing out there that I have seen that is better for converting drawings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

On the business side we can send and receive send/receive and collaborate with other companies (architects, engineers, construction companies, ect..) who we normally may not be able too due to the CV3d 2018 drawing format is only able to be open and read by CV3d 2018 programs and newer. Now, with Trueview, I can save the CV3d drawing down to whatever version of CAD that the client needs.

"It is an excellent viewer for Autocad files. You do not need to have autocad installed."

What do you like best?

In the engineering sector, working with 2D and 3D design tools is part of the day.

For the construction, mechanical design and consulting companies who usually work with Autocad, it is not possible to have the program installed on all the machines that they would like. That is why the availability of free software, Autodesk DWG, provides the possibility to see the Autocad files on the computer you want once installed.

What do you dislike?

The objective for which it was conceived, it is fulfills perfectly. In that sense I have no criticism about it. What I might recommend: continuous improvement of the interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It was useful in presenting the plans to my supervisor and the workshop team. It is free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a researcher in the area of completion and drilling of wells I had the opportunity to design a static disperser, an eductor and portacupon.

It was useful in presenting drawings to my supervisor and the workshop team.

What Other CAD solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Good program"

What do you like best?

Excellent option to provide customers who do not have the autocad the power to see, review and print, r if they wish, the plans of the works and projects that we developed for them, I also use it to check my tablet any plane in any moment and place, is an excellent support program very easy to use and quite practical.

What do you dislike?

I think the program should be optimized better, because when loading a dwg document of considerable size if your computer / tablet / pc is not very powerful the program runs slow and makes it heavy and tedious to move and navigate over it if you want to see something in detail with the zoom tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Software highly recommended for all those who require or need to see and review plans and do not own the autocad or any other CAD program that manages dwg files

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I said in the first paragraph, what I like is that it allows the client, especially in my area since very few manage the autocad, to be able to give them this tool so that they can appreciate and detail the plans of each one of the works they execute with US

"Great dwg viewer"

What do you like best?

Trueview is a great tool for viewing autocads files with nice display and excellent features. I really enjoy the batch plotting feature that allow multiple drawings to be plotted at once. Also, drawings can easily be converted into formats compatible with previous versions.

What do you dislike?

It is very nice but I feel it should allow minor modifications to your drawing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is absolutely nothing to regret with the use of Autodesk trueview

"Perfect for what it does"

What do you like best?

It makes it super simple to view DWG files. It is essentially a pdf viewer for DWGs. You can't edit or anything, but it can be a lot faster than trying to view it in AutoCAD.

What do you dislike?

Obviously, it would be great to be able to make edits to the DWG, but that is what AutoCAD is for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you understand the abilities and limitations of the software before you choose to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is great for reviewing drawings before sending them to others or for production in a laser cutter, etc.

"Works well for viewing, could use better measurement tools"

What do you like best?

The software works well to open up cad files but it would be nice to have more tools for measurements while viewing the files. The software is free though and works well for a lot of things.

What do you dislike?

Seems pretty bulky and takes a while to open up. Also, you are unable to use common AutoCAD commands to do tasks available in the viewer (no command line).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Often we use TrueView to open and view files while not using a license of other software that can view / edit those same files. For instance we can print from the viewer.
