Only a small percentage of the AutoCAD functionality is actually used out of the whole software application. The majority of the AutoCAD users use it for 2D drafting only and rarely use the 3D tools that it provides. AutoCAD costs include a list price from minimum US $1200 license per seat plus maintenance and training necessary to keep a company productive.
MysCad is a cost effective replacement for AutoCAD where 2D drafting is its primary use. MysCad often provides greater function in some 2D areas and is at least equivalent to AutoCAD in other 2D arenas, while retaining 80 percent of the functionality. Besides that, MysCad also provides the powerful 3D modeling features. Using associative graphics, symbols, and dimensions users can improve their legacy drafting workflows with fewer steps and better tools than in AutoCAD. MysCad cost a fraction of the price of an average seat of AutoCAD, with maintenance and training costs significantly less.
