There is so much good going on with Fusion it is honestly hard to say. I love that it is completely portable and that I can take with me on several devices, including my phone! Without question, the most valuable tool for me at the moment, is the integrated CAM functionality. I can design and fabricate real parts in a matter of minutes! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Fusion is still a work in progress and they continue to add new features every week. It's hard to keep up with all the advances but they are definitely welcomed! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I am able to create complex models for manufacture in a short amount of time. I can design simple parts and machine them in a matter of minutes. I can also quickly iterate and create visual renderings to share with clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
SketchUp helps me to see what my pc water cooling project completed is going to look like, also I share plans with others friends or download more shape to complete a specific project, actually I use to plan how the water cooling system could be inside the PC. SketchUp is an easy way to learn 3D modeling and printing tool that helps me to decide which component to buy and put together for a better configuration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Inventor has all of the necessary CAD features you need for designing parts and systems. Great for those using 3D printers. It even includes a variety of analysis options such as strength and thermal properties as well as mass/density for different materials. This software is much more affordable than other programs (namely Solidworks) and the company even offers free educational licensures. This software is quick to learn and they even offer a walkthrough at startup that shows you the different tools and how to get started on projects. There is lots of literature and videos available to watch and learn the program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Unfortunately this CAD software is less popular in industry. If you are looking to market your CAD skills many employers have never even heard of Inventor. However, many of the skills you can learn through practicing with Inventor can easily translate to other CAD software. This program also allows you to turn your 3D CAD design into a drawing file comparable to solidworks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I highly recommend this software if you are a student or beginner looking to get into CAD. This is a super affordable software that includes all the basics you need for projects or drawings. Very comparable to much more expensive software. Lots of package options for both students, home users, and professionals. I really enjoyed using this program and have found it to be incredibly useful. They are always updating their software and are constantly improving their interface and options. While Inventor may not be as popular as other CAD software, it certainly is not obsolete and it is easy to find literature and how-to information online that will help guide you through. Inventor supports engineering analysis, work instruction , accurate BOM information, and improved submittal information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
As mentioned previously, Inventor is great for educational purposes. It is a budget friendly option and if you are a college student you can get a version of the software for free. This is great for home users designing things to be printed on a 3D printer or if you are looking to quickly mock something up. I've used this for several projects in which I can model my diy project prior to building. This can be super handy for making blueprints. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Most of the drawings I create are simple and basic...squares, lines and text. AutoCad LT supports this activity without the burden of three dimensional options that are baked into some other drafting programs. This streamlines my creative process by limiting the options to features I actually use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
AutoCad LT does not handle the creation and storage of "Blocks" in a way that is compatible with our document management system. This is a major pain in the backside since a lot of the designs I create use the same basic elements in each drawing. Being able to create a library of Blocks and track them thru our document management system would be a major time saver. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
AutoCad LT is an excellent tool if you don't need 3-D modeling - it more than adequately meets the needs of users whose drawings only need to be two dimensional. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We need to create a number of simple drawings to document the systems we use at our technical operations center. The people who create these documents range from highly skilled systems engineers to maintenance technicians. AutoCad LT presents a feature set that covers our needs without requiring extensive training on features we don't use. This has helped motivate people to create the documentation we need.

If you like the traditional paper and pencil style, then there is nothing better than Procreate. Go for it.
Even if you don't know drawing, but have some imagination, you can do well. There is plenty of help while drawing and expressing your imagination.
You can do storyboard within procreate on a layer and then draw your actual thing on top of that layer
The alpha lock, clipping mask and masks work great and are excellent to use.
You need an apple pencil - from any generation for sure to comfortably use procreate.
The canvas size and the number of layers depends on the resolution and RAM of your iPAD.
I strongly recommend Procreate and it is very affordable currently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I have drawn loads of props and characters and I animate them. I specialize in creating animated books from children books. Procreate is a tool that I go to often to get the best textures and realistic effects.
I have drawn several night sky elements, desert elements, animals, fishes, characters all with ease. The shades and textures come out nice and colorful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
You can design any product with this, your imagination is the limit and extent is only dependent on your skills. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
You cannot easily draw curves or work with curves as demanded by transportation design. Car designs are extremely difficult with this. Not impossible but too strenous. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The SolidWorks forums are really helpful for somebody who doesn't know how to get help. SolidWorks help locally may only be available in the local language and won't necessarily always be available in English unless it is the local language of the country. For Example, I subscribed to the Portuguese newsletter while I prefer to work in English, there was no option around this. Just a point to note if you are an expatriate in another country.
Also, it is important to be on the latest solidworks version if you plan on exchanging SLDPART files or else be prepared to use STEP or Parasolid. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I've always loved Artrage's incredibly simple and accessible user interface - you can literally just get painting straight away, so it's ideal for somebody who rarely uses graphics or painting software and just wants to create digital art quickly and for fun. And for those who do frequently use digital painting software, Artrage's powerful tools look so much like traditional media that I'm still always impressed every time I do a drawing or painting at just how good it looks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I dislike very little about the software - occasionally I have trouble exporting images if the canvas is too large, and also it's obviously not as advanged as something like Photoshop in the editing and effects department. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It's an absolute must try - so inexpensive and it just looks so outstanding! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
For colouring illustrations I usually do turn to Artrage first as I can achieve a really good, individual look in far less time than in other software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I've become a better artist because of the software Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I like that you can take drawings from the CAD software and print them out as drawings for other programs. Most of the operations that must be done are easy to perform. There are other operations that seem hard to wrap my mind around, and I find the command Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I am not overly familiar with BricsCAD, however, some of the tings I dislike is that you can't print off/export more than one drawing at a time. It makes moving the drawings more tedious. Also, it can be hard to recenter on a certain area of the sheets, and usually can only be fixed by scrolling extremely out and in. Not exactly a time saver. The program also seems sort of out dated by the looks of it, but it may be less resolution and user friendly to save on the memory it takes up on a computer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
When the Drawings come to me they are already completed usually, but they are easier to edit than in other programs we use. Since the drawings are a grouping of lines instead of a connected shape and parts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It is best software available in market. It is best for all kinds of modelling like solid, sheet and surface modelling. I can effectively design a outer surface of cars, where none other software is capable as catia is. It enables easy drafting and billing of materials. It has capable analysing tools. If I had carry analysis in other software it gives option to convert file into iges format, which is read by all analysis software. It has good rendering options too. It has best service team to explain and sort out if any problem occurs. Therefore it is best software available, where CAD, CAE and CAM can be done. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I enjoy working with Rhinoceros as a 3D modelling computer program Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Sometimes exporting as a 2D drawing can be time consuming Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I would highly recommend users to start using Rhinoceros. It is a 3D program that allows you to create fast and accurate 3D models. For our discipline (urban design) it works great. I enjoy working with Rhinoceros because it allows to organise the file very well with all the layers options. In terms of support there are many tutorial videos available and also user guides that explain all the functions in detail and therefore there are not any commands that are not easy to understand. I like the fact that you can have floating licenses, for example in our office we have a few licenses and we create and team and can share the purchased licenses. This offers flexibility to the team and is a plus when working in a team with multiple people. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I am an urban designer and I am using Rhinoceros mainly for volumetric models. I use it to make and volumetric studies of urban plans. I import 2D base drawings from Autocad and then using extruding commands create the 3D model. I calculate the total volume with Rhino, continue building the model and finally exporting the end product. I return to 2D drawing as Autocad or Illustrator or I use Lumion for making renders. I am very satisfied with Rhinoceros as a 3D modelling program. It is accurate in designing, works great with other programs eg Autocad and it has a friendly user interface Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Very intuitive user interface with a number of time saving smart features. It makes the simple things very easy, but also has lots of more advanced features to help with more complex designs. The drawing functions make manufacturing drawing a doddle to complete, and most of it can be setup to auto-update with changes to the model, meaning mistakes are reduced as designs are revised. There is a new release ever year which always includes useful updates for existing features and a number of new features which give added capability. In the latest releases I've been particularly impressed with Structure System, which makes designing large welding metal frame structures much simpler than before, particularly due to the intelligence of the corner feature, which deals really well with areas where the members meet. The smart fastener feature is also very useful for large assemblies which contain lots of fasteners, as these can be added quickly with stacks allowing for bolts, washers and nuts to be intelligently added all at once Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Not as good at working with surfaces or editing complex curved faces. This is where having a second CAD package available can be helpful if it works in a different way. For example, my company uses ANSYS Spaceclaim, which works well with surfaces but does not have the same overall capabilities as SOLIDWORKS, so the two work together pretty well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Creating large assemblies with ease, and with the toolbox it is simple to add all the required fasteners to check clearances before anything is manufactured to avoid problems further down the line. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It's a very interesting application, but in my opinion it's still green. There a lot of interesting solution, the aquarelle brushes and oil are very nice - but you'll have to use with them some time to start drawing as you want. The interface is very good and intuitive - at this point they are very OK. interacting with paper texture is also a very good option they add.
Overall it's a very nice app to draw in, I think if they will fix the issues with vector brushes i'll start to use it much more, much more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Vector brushes have end errors, like little artifact on the end of the line - that a soft issue and i think they will resolve it soon - but for me that's a problem, because brushes are very good, i would ude that app much more if not that.
It not supported Nvidia Quadro video cards - that is on my base laptop (it is touch and pen support - i work in Photoshop on it) - only on my iPad pro ... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
If you are looking for a realistic looking paint on digital it is definitely the right choose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
it recreate the best realistic brush effects like oil and aquarelle - when i need a realist fast result i prefer to do that in Fresco vs doing that on paper.
IN fresco we start to draw direct in vector (illustrator it is not very advance in drawing) and that give us much better result raver that vectoring the procreate file - it is about small details - but the small details make a very big difference in preparing a landscape for a wine label for example.
