  • My old angle plate


    Just fooling around trying to learn a different CAD program, QCad. Thought I'd share the results.

    First a photo of my old angle plate that I made a long time ago in school.

    Qcad drawing

    For a free CAD program, it is remarkably usable for creating shop floor drawings. I'm not real big on the dimensioning. I haven't figured out how to control number of decimal places to show. It wants to drop zeros. Makes it hard to indicate tolerance. Though text is remarkably easy to do and control.

    If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.

      Dale, Justy had a quick look at Qcad and it's not free anymore.

      From the site:-
      • The demo version terminates after 10 minutes.
      • It can be restarted and used for 100 hours in total
      Seems a lot that once were free are going this way, Intellicad was one, Progecad was another.
