5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly capable 2D drawing software July 28, 2011
By Lolo
As a mechanical design engineer I've been using Autosketch in it's various forms for almost 20 years.
I'm now using version 9 with my new 64bit notebook running windows 7 without any problems. The reason I'm writing this review is because I'm just looking to upgrade to version 10 and stumbled upon these reviews by accident.

In a nutshell Autosketch is a perfectly capable 2D drawing tool. I'm of the opinion that 90% of the people who pay 1000s of $ for AutoCAD could get by perfectly well with this $200 software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Autosketch,outstanding program August 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
I began using Quick Cad over 25 years ago. I've tried several other programs, but this was the only one I installed and used immediately. I didn't need the manual for the basics. When I tried to transfer my copy to another comjputer, it didn't work anymore so I purchased Autosketch. It seems to be Quick Cad under a different name, but it is the same easy to use, accurate program I fell in love with. I canq'tlive without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use July 13, 2009
I got it for home use. This one is a work horse. It's stable. And I keep discovering new ways to make the drawing process easier. Don't waste time downloading trials of the less expensive 2-D drawing programs. They are not as intuitive and in my experience, tend to lock up the computer just about when you think you got a useful drawing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent with a couple of slight flaws! January 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have been using Autosketch in one guise or another for over twenty years. In that time I have seen it progress from a relatively simple 2D drawing package to quite a feature rich and complex one.

This latest version adds one or two new features including 32 bit support (Autosketch 9 was a 16 bit package) and AutoCAD support with the ability to both open and save in DXF or DWG format.

My only complaints are threefold:-

1. When you open an AutoCAD file it converts to an SKF file format in the filename so SKF is still the hard programmed default format rather than a user chosen one.
2. If you save an SKF file, your layout orientation and scale as well as your printer orientation and scales are saved. When saving in AutoCAD format you lose the printer settings which to me is a major pain the backside! Who wants to have to set the printer up every time you want to print a saved drawing? Come on Autodesk, wake up!
3. The price has more than doubled from version 9 which is not really excusable in my opinion considering the issues with the autocad format printer problem.

Those three issues aside, Autosketch 10 is a very capable package (new users must be prepared to take the time to learn how to use it) more than sufficient for architectural, mechanical and electrical 2D drawings. If this is all you need you really don't need to be spending 3-4 times as much money on packages packed with features you just don't use. Autosketch will do very nicely.

UPDATE: Since writing this review I have discovered that you can get around the loss of orientation on the printer page with AutoCAD drawings by setting your printers default to Landscape mode. Of course, if you need it set to Portrait for some other app this won't help you and I stand by my point that a saved DWG or DXF should retain the printer settings like the SKF drawings do.

2.0 out of 5 stars Substandard features for the price October 14, 2009
By Greg P
Verified Purchase
I used Autocad LT for several years and then moved to Turbocad when the ongoing upgrades became too expensive for the amount of use that I had (upgrades were necessary to update operating systems). There were things about the Autocad interface that I have missed, however, so decided to try AutoSketch, hoping for a reasonably complete 2D application. It falls well short of the interface and capabilities of LT. I have reverted to the (less than perfect) TurboCad.

Autodesk has always been the leader in CAD software and continues with this latest version of AutoSketch. I have used AutoCAD and AutoSketch for about 18 years now. It was dissapointing though that they did not have an upgrade offer from previou AutoSketch versions and forced users to buy a whole new version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful & Precise March 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
With this software, AutoDesk does a wonderful job creating an affordable tool for the DIY designer, fabricator, builder, etc. The power and precision of the AutoSketch product shouldn't be underestimated. The more knowledgable and proficient the user as it relates to understanding the concepts of "measurement" and "mechanics", the more the user will appreciate the ability of this program.

This product is the best two dimensional drawing products that I have ever used, and I have used a lot of this type of product.

One of it's best features is that it has a moderate learning curve, and thus one can be productive in using the program almost immediately!

Sincerely,
