QCAD<br />Software made by a company named RIBBON SOFT globally used by various engineers for computer aided designs/drafting in 2-D.<br />With QCAD you can create technical drawings such as plans for buildings, interior designs, mechanical parts or we can plan anything and make diagrams of the plan.<br />
  3. 3. QCAD<br />QCAD works on Windows, Mac OS X and many Linux and Unix Systems. The source code of the QCAD community edition is released under the GPL (General Public License).<br />MAIN FEATURES:<br />Multi-document interface, Layer support, Block support (grouping)<br />Integrated part / symbol browser<br />24bit Colors<br />24 different line widths<br />
  4. 4. QCAD<br />19 line styles<br />35 CAD optimized fonts<br />200 undo/ redo levels<br />Supported units:<br />Metrical: Nanometer, Millimeter, Centimeter, Decimeter, Meter, ...<br />Imperial: Inch, Foot, Mile, Microinch, Mil, Yard<br />Other: Angstrom, Micron, Astro, Lightyear, Parsec<br />
  5. 5. QCAD<br />SUPPORTED FILE FORMATS:<br />DXF R12 and DXF 200x (reading / writing),BMP, JPEG, PNG, .. (import and export as bitmaps),SVG (export),High quality PDF (export)<br />PRINTING:<br />Printing to scale (e.g. 1:2, 1:100, ..),Print preview with paper selection<br />CONSTRUCTION:<br />Points, Lines, with two points, given absolute angle, horizontal / vertical, rectangles, parallels, bisectors, tangents, orthogonal……<br />
  6. 6. QCAD<br />Arcs:<br />Center, radius, angles, three points, concentric<br /> Circles, center, circle line point, center, radius, two opposed points, three points, concentric<br />Ellipses:<br />center, two points (minor and major axis)<br />center, two points, start angle, end angle<br />Splines (NURBS):<br />degrees 2, 3<br />closed, open<br />
  7. 7. QCAD<br />Modification:<br />Move, rotate, scale, mirror, move and rotate, rotate and counter-rotate, trim to entity. trim by amount, bevel, round, divide, divide 2 (remove segment)<br />stretch<br />edit geometry (numeric)<br />edit attributes<br />And many more………<br />
  8. 8.
  9. 9. QCAD<br />Features are very similar to high cost software's like AUTOCAD.<br />User is always concerned with the features so it can be used in every possible way.<br />Can be downloaded anywhere from internet.<br />So QCAD is preferable.<br />
