Has anyone had any experience using ZWCAD as a more budget friendly version of AutoCAD?

Got a question from one fellow engineer about this. ZWCAD should be very similar to AutoCAD, use the dwg format but is quite cheaper.
Anyone using it or had any experience of potential limitations etc?

No, but Draftsight is a very good 2D CAD program and is free. It is much like AutoCAD and uses DXF or DXF


Hi Alex! We use ZWCAD on daily basis and are extremely pleased with it :) It delivers what it promises: a cheaper user friendly AutoCAD alternative. Basically if the user has AutoCAD experience they can start using ZWCAD without any special training. ZWCAD is available for a free trial at: http://www.zwsoft.com/en/download/
