Best AutoCAD alternative I found

Positive Comment by hannledo
about Bricscad Mar 2015

I tried a lot of alternatives but then I stumbled upon BricsCAD. And I must say.. value for money it's great. It has a very familiar interface so it's easy to switch from AutoCAD to BricsCAD. The Quad is indeed an intelligent handy tool. I also got a lot of help from their video channel, www.bricsys.tv
