QCAD is an application for computer aided drafting in two dimensions (2D). It has intuitive user interface. Features include layers, blocks (grouping), 35 CAD fonts included, support for TrueType fonts, various Metrical and Imperial units, DXF and DWG input and output. Its core is developed in C++, based on the Qt tool kit.
The source code of QCAD is released under the GPL version 3 (GPLv3), a popular Open Source license. QCAD was designed with modularity, extensibility and portability in mind. QCAD is an easy to use but powerful 2D CAD system for everyone.
The program offers an unparalleled array of design and modeling tools that users might find helpful. Anything from the standard designs to the most unusual of shapes can be modeled using the modeling and design tab in this program. With an impressive amount of functionality, it is easy to see why this program has become so popular.
There are multiple 2D system analysis tools that people can use to locate any error floors that might be present in their model. Users will find this under the animation and analysis tab along with plenty of information regarding their simulations. This unique feature allows users to catch their mistakes before putting together their model for real.
