Super laggy

This is a super laggy program. Hard to use. Not very user freindly. And cost a lot. I feel like it was a waste of time to use this program. Cost extra for rendering program. Also bad tutorials. I switched to Fusion 360 because it is easier to use has free rendering and doesn't lag and is also free to hobbiest. It's ok but for the big price tag there are much better options out there especially if you are a hobbiest.

Released in 2020 coded in 1990s

Perhaps usable. I just downloaded it for a quick project. The controlls are not obvious. The artwork in the app is not retina friendly (so menu text is crisp the assocated icons are lower res).

Overall the interface looks like it was developed on DOS or on earlier Windows releases.

I will keep trying. When I saw there was a 2020 update I was hopefull that some of the review comments would have been addressed. Not so.

A decent cad program

CorelCad is a decent program it’s as intuitive as most cad programs, not very unless you have experience with cad programs, but is usable for the newby. The manual isn’t the best, it tells you what features are with out explaining them, but if you have some patience then it’ll get you through. Having said that I have upgraded to 2018 and am happy with the new features. I upgraded through the Corel web site rather than the App Store and have retained my perpetual license, the subscription is an option as the developer states in his response to my original review.

Developer Response ,
