"Unethical Business Practices"

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...

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.

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.

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.

"Good, customizable, programmable CAD software at a reasonable price"

What do you like best?

Interoperability with AutoCAD dwg formats, LISP programming language, and a customizable menu system. The system is not bloated with so many features that I rarely or never use. Can display and print Autodesk Inventor .dwg files.

What do you dislike?

Minor bugs that are probably common to most or all IntelliCAD consortium-based CAD products. No support for image tile menus, or palette menus (yet.) Plotting using common script (.scr) files was better in the previous version (v7.) Plotting is partially broken with the current product (v8), using the Window option is not working correctly, in fact selecting any of the optional methods (Extents, Window, Limits, Display) is not working properly and defaults to whatever method was saved in the drawing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good core command-set CAD product, similar to AutoCAD R14. Just as capable as other CAD packages in handling average size drawing files used in material handling engineering. Pretty much fully programmable using LISP.

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

I make and mass-process changes and plots of electrical schematic and layout drawings. The main benefits of using CMS IntelliCAD are the ability to use LISP and scripting in combination to semi-automate tedious tasks.
