What do you like best?

I am a professional Urban Planner and using CMS IntelliCAD for my Urban Planning works. The layout and plotting are great, it provides with fast and flexible drawing options, modifying tools and 2D features. Also, it offers importing and exporting. This is extremely helpful tool for GIS plans, architecture, and planning. I like using this software as a drafting tool for my design work. The interface is intuitive and easy to use. What I like most about this tool is the ability to create blocks and creating standard symbol like logo/arrow or something to bring into our drawing and without the need to re-draw it again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The program crashes frequently and troubleshooting problems on this software can be difficult. It can be really hard to create hatch because the tool has some issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

CMS IntelliCAD is a great drawing and design tool. I've used the software to pull both simple and complex designs. It has the feature to save or export different file formats. There user interface is very calm and you have full control over the designs being created. You can create your own custom controls, custom interface likewise. The output are always good provided you make use of the right tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You can't learn the full functionality of the software fast especially if you are new to CAD. It's a must for the program to crash randomly. Other than this, I find that this software is really powerful and useful to my work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

What do you like best?

I am an Architect and Urban planner by profession; I found the software namely, “CMS IntelliCAD” really useful for my planning and designing project. It's been excellent in managing huge maps and layout plan of the areas spanning hundreds of acres. It works smoothly even during working with heavy files and large scale project. I have planned and designed about 5000+ acres projects on this amazing software. It’s very good for all sort of architectural designs, master planning and mapping works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not find anything bad about this software within my working domain, but in rare case, after long working hours it gives some unexpected errors and gets down. Secondly, it should be promoted as I see very less awareness about this amazing software even though it’s among the best. Student version with cheaper packages should be available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It’s very helpful, easy to use with good display. Perfect product for the architects, engineers & town planners to draw their plans quickly. I highly recommend it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The experience with this software has been amazing. It has helped me in developing construction plans very quick. It’s quite intuitive coupled with easy and custom commands and interface. It can be used to handle wide range of different designs or projects because there are great functions on it. 2 Dimension and 3 Dimension drawings can be done. IntelliCAD output files can be used on other CAD software and vice versa. It’s versatile. From my days using AutoCAD, this software is very much better as the pricing plan doesn’t look like a rip-off. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are sudden glitches while using the software. This is quite common with other CADs too. The learning curve can be very long especially if you are new. The hardware requirement is a bit high and the workflow won’t be enjoyed on a regular PC. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The one to use if you need CAD modeling software. The standard tools make me happy using the software. I recommend it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This software is fully developed to be powerful. The designs created are of high and quality standards. Though the interface is similar to AutoCAD, this is more intuitive to use. It supports and can open existing files created by the alternates. The pricing is very okay as it does look like a rip-off. The toolsets give the exact purpose when needed.

The software is cheap yet very functional, especially as a go between for CAD/Microstation file types. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Customer service won't let me activate the software on a new machine. When I emailed them, they claimed that I was told ahead of time to deactivate the previous installs in an email that I never recieved. Luckily I had one of the old machines around still, so I fire it up and deactivate the license only to get an error. Now it won't let me deactivate anymore because the machine says it doesn't have a license, but I also can't reactivate on my new computer because it didn't release my license, and yet they still will not even attempt to assist me. Hands down the worst customer support I've ever experienced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Don't purchase the software, you'll be wasting your money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Intellicad is a very trouble free, secure and powerful CAD software tool. It is a conglomerate of 2D and 3D compatible CAD tools which is suitable for architects engineers, consultants and also anyone who needs to evaluate CAD drawings.Installation is really effortless and easy. It provides an unbeaten compatibility and is at par with most of the highly ranked CAD softwares , but at a very down to earth price. It has an inbuilt toolkit for LISP, VBA .Net and IRX development and opens .dwg files, sets dimensions, viewing sheets and tabs, measures length and coordinates perfectly without any lags.Zoom in and zoom out is seamless and quick with a very adaptable user interface. It is the closest a CAD software could to AutoCAD that too at such a feasible price. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's a great CAD program and at $199 for a perpetual license seemed to be a lot more affordable than AutoCAD, but... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Less than 12 months after purchase, the company released a new version, but instead of providing a free upgrade called it a "major release" and asked to pay an additional $150 to upgrade, which was absolutely unreasonable.

Just over 12 months after that, the company is completely blocking me from using the software (asked for new license key), this time by saying it's not compatible with Windows 10, even though the license was purchased after Windows 8 had already been released and long after Windows 7 was released and all Windows 7 & 8 programs are supposed to be compatible with Windows 10.

In summary, the company tries to scam money off of you every opportunity that they get and paying $350 to use the software for only 2+ years, until who knows what trick they come up with next, makes this software completely unappealing, considering he learning curve involved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would not recommend purchasing IntelliCAD from this particular company. There are other companies selling IntelliCAD who appreciate your business and at least don't try to scam you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

the only benefit to this software was its perceived cost, which is obviously an illusion. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
