The CAD Prophecy
Another try to replace AutoCAD - The Prophecy. I am very skeptical about this. There were lots of commercial attempts and some half-hearted open source attempts to make this, but all failed. In my opinion the CAD market does not generate enough passion to replace AutoCAD. The original product is too good and too cheap (speaking about LT). Both commercial development and enthusiasts' efforts make little sense in this situation.
It's not the lack of passion, it's the monumental amount of work it would take to match AutoCAD's abilities. It would take years of development to match what they have created--this is the sad truth I've come to realize.Post a Comment
