What’s the difference among Autocad, Solidworks and Gstarcad
First off let’s clear the misconception that AutoCAD is the same as Solidworks
Solidworks is used to model solid part files for mechanical design purposes it understands solids & materials it understands that it can break and that these parts need to be assembled together, etc…
AutoCAD is a general drawing & Drafting Tool whatever what things are you trying to draw or draft, it can be used in anything from Mechanical Drawing to Plumbing Pipes Drawing to HVAC and Fire Fighting to even bridges or structures; because it basically understand lines and circles when it comes to drafting AutoCAD is the king of Drafting
Gstarcad is much like AutoCAD, it just has a different interface with different functionality
However if you want to go for what’s available and cheap why not go for Free & Open source software?
Here’s a list of what’s out there:
- Best for Drafting
- Easy to use 2D, 3D is tough for advance drawings.
- Basic CAD tool
- Has precision upto 10 decimal places
- More Theoretical oriented.
- Best for 2D and Basic 3D
- Easy to work in 3D rather than 2D
- High end CAD tool
- More Practical oriented.
