Hello everyone

I`m interested to know what others use QCAD for, I`m not encouraging advertising here! I thought it would be good to get some feedback about the use of QCAD (I`m sure it will provide interesting reading).

I personally use QCAD quite a bit for Laser cutting.

Regards

Clive

2d design for commercial antenna parts. Plus my own projects around the house.

Sounds Interesting

I am just finishing the development and design of a hybrid diesel - electric transmission for a 23 m/66ton passenger boat. Launch is scheduled for the coming Spring...

here's a section and a full picture. My design lies between the transmission and the main shaft to the prop.

wow, this is amazing!

I use QCAD to mock-up outbuildings on our farm. I'm a walking contradiction (techno-savy-farmer)

I use Qcad in my architecture studio for all the necesary drawings to build them. And use Blender to photorealistic visulization.

I use QCad for 2D architecture and terrain concept as well as electrical design (where to place socket outlets, which type of cable).

Hello

Currently I use QCAD for the design of real-life and model track plans as a hobby. :D

I also use it professionally for technical drawing from scratch. Unfortunately, the import of existing work-related files (dxf/dwg) with complex geometry does not work too well.

Best regards
Stephan
