Pros/Cons
  • Pros

  • With the release of ArchiCAD V23 there are a lot of new features that have increased my more flow. The integration of add-ons like TwinMotion and the new an improved coloumns and beams tools.
  • Sometimes I like that archicad is less rigid than Revit. It's easy to create what you want and to get it to look the way it should.
  • Cons

  • It's hard to find cons over this vendor. Need some stability upgrades over issues for crashing the software for working larger products.
  • It is difficult to find enough learning material and what already exists is very difficult for understandning for people out of coding world.

  • AutoCAD is very easy and friendly in use, there is very easy command in AutoCAD which I love the most.
  • Its most important positive feature is ease of use and speed of learning by memorizing and understanding shortcuts.
  • Cons

  • There is a problem of not having all the fonts available when downloading the program and the need to download other fonts separately in order to open some layouts, especially for Arabic fonts.
  • I experienced program crash on my computer sometimes and it leads data&time loss for user.
