DCAD Sucker's Review of DeltacadReviewed on 4/21/20 1:45 PM
SERIOUSLY disappointed in this app! Knew going into it that I could not expect it to be as intuitive as a lot of Mac apps and that would have to focus on the tutorial with an open mind. But … after several days of working with the tutorial, it wouldn’t respond according to the directions beyond creating the first four buttons. Next step …. contact them for customer support with no reply for several days so I sent them another … with no response to that one either. A bit of digging this morning resulted in learning that there was another Midnight Software that was NOT the DeltaCad company. A little more digging told me that the DeltaCad company’s domain name was for sale for $50K. Bottom line … it looks like I wasted $39.99 … with an outside chance that I might be able to do simple house floor plans with this app. BUYER BEWARE!!! Oh … for the simpler days of MacDrawII.

This software is mostly unusable. Apple WILL NOT give you a REFUND. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY $$$$ as you are stuck with junk-ware. Sorry, but that's what has happened. Why APPLE does this? Who knows. BUY junk software...and you're just stuck with it! I never write reviews...very very unhappy with getting stuck with this purchase. $40 in the toilet. ALL THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS ARE ***CORRECT***

I've used many cad programs over the years and needed to use a quick program while traveling. This program is not intuitive, clearly not designed by a engineer or draftperson .

Baught this because the app store said it would open .dwg files from another cad program but it would not. So a waste of $39 in my situation

Took a chance on DeltaCad in spite of mixed reviews. Yeah, would probably erase the program and get my money back if that was an option. It is not a BAD program, and I may someday invest the time to become proficient with it. Nothing derogatory intended about the program or its developers. You'll notice, however, that most of the positive reviews come from former users of the Windows version of the program. DeltaCad works along the lines of older, sophisticated Windows-based drafting programs rather than being a straightforward Mac-oriented drawing program. If you are looking for MacDraw (remember that?) or Inkscape or LibreOffice Draw with ruler scaling and better control over dimensioning (as I was), this ain't it. If you are comfortable with traditional CAD software, you will be very at home with DeltaCad and probably find it a powerful and useful program. If you are in a hurry and need a Mac program to help with a *quick* house or apartment layout, keep looking.

Just wanted to draw some simple framing shop drawings and found this software impossible to draw with. If you draw a simple line that goes off your screen the app will not automatically scroll. The app doesn't even take advantage of cut, copy and paste. Don't waste your time with this software. No refunds!!!!!
Twinkcat85's Review of DeltacadReviewed on 4/21/20 1:45 PM
I had issues all day with different engineers not being able to open files and share the infromation with each other. Excuses, excuses…So I went to my trusty mac, dowloaded this program and voila! Done. Not only can I read autoCAD 2013 files…I can save them as earlier formats (my issue was saving a file as a .dxf when it was a .dwg from 2013) and now…I can see everything, handle everything and get the job done!! Pure awesome! Thank you!

I needed to draw up a new invention and it has been 20 years since I have used AutoCad. This is a great app if you want to draw something fast. It is super intuitive. It doesn’t have near the features that that AutCad does but for what I needed it was satisfactory. I was able to draw and dimension my part in less than two hours, that includes learning how to use it. For $40 bucks it is a steal!!

Ever since I installed Maverick, Delta cad will not function otherwise this is a very good program when working.
