Somebody wrote to me this past week about the difference between
AutoCad and TurboCad.
The difference is about $2400.00.
I learned CAD on TurboCad and still use it when I have to draw
The only reason that I use AutoCad or AD Inventor is because we use it
at work and Autodesk is coin of the realm in a business setting.
I can still draw quicker in TurboCad for 2D stuff but have to confess
that AD Inventor is faster for 3D stuff. Not $5000.00 worth but still
If you want to learn 2D CAD for personal use, TurboCad is the way to
go, for my money but, if you want to learn CAD with an eye towards a
career in mind, AutoCad is the right choice because everyone uses it.
TurboCad has a better newsgroup community than AutoCad, in my opinion.
I've never seen a better community forum environment than theirs.
If you have any more questions, ask CW.
He's been a TC champ for years, and is knowledgeable about the most
current version, while I only know up to Pro V5.
Hope that I answered your question. Whoever you were.
