AutoCAD is an awesome product. The stuff you can do with it is unreal. The price is out of this world. It would be nice if you could do all that stuff without all those dollars. Well, as luck would have it, you can almost get there: most of the features with none of the cost.

DoubleCAD XT is a free application that functionally is very close to AutoCAD LT. Not only can you open and view .DWG files, but you can edit them as well. It comes with a full complement of drawing tools: line, arc, and circle, multiline, and bezier curves and more. Yet at the same time, it has a much smaller footprint than the high priced spread.

So what's their angle? Well, the publisher wants you to fall in love with it and ultimately upgrade to the paid "Pro" version, of course. But you may find that this version does everything you want. It's up to you.

DoubleCAD XT is a free Windows application. It runs under Win XP or Vista.

    The publisher wants WAY TOO MUCH personal info to receive their free product. In my mind, the “price” is too high. I’d rather have a trial version to make up my mind and not “give awat the farm” ‘s worth og personal info.

    Thanks, but no thanks

    The DoubleCAD XT, is a marvelous program. It does the same as AutoCAD and more and the best of all, IT IS FREE.

    I am using it, and it is a great tool for people using AutoCAD and do not have the money to pay for it.

    And for the point of view of use, it is great, you need to remember it is not AutoCAD and you need to learn how to use DoubleCAD TX, you will be delighted after learning this new software.
