What do people use QCAD for?

Postby Clive » Tue Dec 20, 2011 12:49 pm

Hello everyone

I`m interested to know what others use QCAD for, I`m not encouraging advertising here! I thought it would be good to get some feedback about the use of QCAD (I`m sure it will provide interesting reading).

I personally use QCAD quite a bit for Laser cutting.

Regards

here's a section and a full picture. My design lies between the transmission and the main shaft to the prop.

Very impressive work you have done here - nice to see QCAD in action in the project :wink:

Are you the one waving at the rear of the boat? :lol:

wow, this is amazing!

I use QCAD to mock-up outbuildings on our farm. I'm a walking contradiction (techno-savy-farmer)

I use Qcad in my architecture studio for all the necesary drawings to build them. And use Blender to photorealistic visulization.

I use QCad for 2D architecture and terrain concept as well as electrical design (where to place socket outlets, which type of cable).

Hello

Currently I use QCAD for the design of real-life and model track plans as a hobby. :D

I also use it professionally for technical drawing from scratch. Unfortunately, the import of existing work-related files (dxf/dwg) with complex geometry does not work too well.

Best regards
Stephan
