Quick drawings made (reasonably) simple
I’ve downloaded this as a user of Autocad LT series, I found many CAD similarities. I found it most useful for quick drawings for one-off component manufacture. There seem to be either something I haven’t worked out or a software bug. This manifests itself when you get into tidying up drawings when erasing unwanted features or modifications to design - I can’t get back the initial tool ribbon only via using the ‘erase’ then using the back (undo) arrow. I have I missed something? I still don’t know how to move selected objects to move them to a different layer. Saving/sending files to AutoCAD LT seem problematical - I either send files to my email account, drop box or iCloud then download the attachment to load on the PC/Laptop AutoCAD software. Also had a bit of a fight with ‘fitting to paper’ when printing - but that my inexperience. Other than I like it. I’m looking forward to minor improvements, hopefully that’s not too long away. One of the main things is that it an AutoDesk product. I hope Fusion 360 will be available on the iPad Pro. One last thing - I bought my iPad Pro mainly for using it with CAD/CAM. You don’t need the expensive Apple Pencil but it helps with quick layouts. Still haven't got around the ‘Smart Pen’ facilitate on the ribbon! John H
Really good, could be great
I’ve found this app to be very useful for creating digital site plans for small projects. This saves time transferring paper sketches to digital format at the office. There are some useful features such as layers, disto integration, smart pencil, but there is potential for so much more such as changing line types from solid to dashed and creating your own blocks. Would like to see these features in future updates.
At first glance this seemed liked a simple answer to a few of my problems, specifically digitising site plans drawn on permatrace (Old school, I know). As I rarely need anything more complicated than polylines and basic XREF tools to do this, this app seemed like a perfect fit. However, the XREF tools aren't quite up to snuff - the lack of an Align tool is particularly annoying, and the simple addition of a transparency option would be particularly helpful. Drawings beyond the most basic of shapes are often slightly more trouble than they are worth, but I'm sure with practice this would improve. As has been noted in another review, changing line types appears to be impossible, which severely restricts the usefulness of this app for my applications.
As a method of viewing .dwg files, and performing some (Very) basic markup this is a perfectly functional app. As an even vaguely serious drawing tool, it's miles off the mark.
