    AutoCAD Arch review by Carlos  P.
    "It is the software standard for drafting, although missing the functionality of other CAD programs: I like the interface with the color scheme, which is helpful in facilitating the drafting process. Compared to other drafting softwares, AutoCAD is faster in start-up and prolonged use for producing relatively less complex 2D drawings. Also the software allows you to produce very precise and large scale drawings with ease. Applying hatches is a strong feature that often causes crashes in other CAD software."

    Vectorworks Arch review by Peter E.
    "THE complete BIM package for architects: Our office has been using Vectorworks in some incarnation since 1994, and personally since 1992. Since those early releases (and continuing to this day), it has distinguished itself for its ease of use as a 3D modeling program, enabling us to generate sophisticated, integrated, complete visualizations and documentation of our projects. No other software package has been able to offer such capabilities at such an accessible price point. In short, Vectorworks is a spectacular design tool."

    ARCHICAD review by Pablo Antonio R.
    "It can really work on it even for architects begginers, it's a really good software.: ARCHICAD has been a success because prices is very reasonable if you can manage it without having the industry standard software, also you can make 3D easily and it has much fluency on the model management and all system is very easy and complete. I have to say that this is a good alternative to pricier CAD programs because it's great for smallers architecture firms and individual designers.But with all sincerity, this has been the best architecture design software that I've found."

    DataCAD review by Mark B.
    "DataCAD - the versatile software!: 1. Robust and flexible allowing ideas to be developed from basic 2D or 3D sketch designs through to complete detailed construction documentation drawings, 2. Suitable for small projects through to larger, more complex projects including high rise buildings, residential, office, hospitality, shopping malls, medical, educational and institutional projects etc. and will allow users to work either in the same office or collaboratively across the country or around the world using file sharing options back to a master file(s), 3. Includes a variety of design output techniques for presentation, either as electronic drawings or animated/user-controlled 3D project models. It also includes a large number of file import/export options allowing projects to be shared with consultants and clients, 4. Strong user-control over most entities or objects within a drawing file, allowing users the ability to personalize their drawings and ensure drawings 'read' correctly with good line weight definition and other techniques associated with traditional construction documentation, 5. Work can be done in either 2D, 3D or parametric 3D/2D and includes a host of powerful tools to streamline the transition from concept to developed design to construction drawings, 6. Is straight forward to use and operate without the complexities associated with full BIM sofwares. DataCAD's flexible approach allows projects to use a combination of entities, objects and techniques to create the output drawings. This allows users the option of either modelling a full virtual 3D model to extract the 2D documentation, or create a less detailed 3D model then progress the 2D output views to completion, 7. The software doesn't 'expire' each year requiring a forced payment to be able to open a drawing. Upgrading is optional, and the affordability makes renewing the license a no-brainer! 8. DataCAD has been around for over 35 years which reflects on its wide user-base satisfaction and industry acceptance, 9. Has a good user-support network and public Forum, 10. It's enjoyable to use!"

    "Navisworks makes model navigation easy for all: Autodesk has put together a comprehensive piece of software with Navisworks that allows user to pull in a variety of different file types and easily view, compare or run clash detection on. The interface is simple enough that new users can navigate and easily understand tools and their abilities, and it is easy to customize that same interface. I use Navisworks extensively in live BIM coordination and have never had any issues slicing up a model, running clash detection, or putting together viewpoints or drawings for field teams to reference."
