"A full-featured CAD solution."

VariCAD 2014 is a specific CAD tool for developing 2D and 3D models for mechanical engineers. Drafting out 2D drawings and 3D computer modeling, this tool can be used for crash tests, sheet metal unbending, mechanical part calculating, as well as title blocks and bills of materials. 3D modeling is the natural modeling process with VariCAD, with the conversion to 2D after the model is completed being perhaps the best approach. The file format compatibility is good with DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP and STL are all supported for file saving and transfer of developed 2D and 3D models to be viewed in other packages later.

VariCAD 2014 Key Features:

  • Mechanical engineer-based CAD package
  • Run calculations tailed to engineers
  • Save models in DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP and STL formats (2D/3D saving support varies depending the format)
  • Requires Windows

VariCAD 2014 is a CAD packages specifically for mechanical engineers with options tailored to this niche.

Workable CAD program for mechanical engineering at an affordable price.

Program for designing mechanical structures and machines. I have been using VariCAD for about 1.5 years and consider the program to be quite workable, but far from perfect. This CAD program is a bizarre combination of quality tools for creating 3D models and completely clumsy, in my opinion, 2D tools for creating drawings. If the convenience of 2D tools was the same as the convenience of 3D tools, I think this program would have many more users.
Pros
1. Very competitive price.
2. User-friendly licensing policy.
3. Availability of equivalent versions for Windows and Linux.
4. The program does not require a powerful computer and can work properly on a mediocre laptop.
Cons
1. Very inconvenient 2D toolkit, which requires the designer to perform many unnecessary operations.
2. Incomplete documentation. For example, some hotkeys are not documented.
3. The VariCAD support team likes to ignore user questions. The support forum is also in a half-dead state.
4. Sometimes the behavior of the program contradicts the documentation.
