AnyCAD Free 1.4
Create and adjust geometrical shapes
You mostly get to work with basic shapes, which can be edited and combined to create some of the most complex models. The user interface lets you quickly adapt due to the familiar design.
Created objects are displayed is a side panel for easy selection. All of their attributes can be modified from a data table containing options such as size, rotation, scale, as well as several other. You are not limited to changing colors for objects, with the possibility to add images, but no way to apply them as textures.
Slightly difficult to work with
Even though the user interface makes for a quick accommodation, dedication your time to creating 3D models with this application can be a little frustrating. The main disadvantage is the missing hotkey support, which could have increased efficiency.
Every action or tool needs to be selected from the upper bar before use, including camera movement options. Moreover, in order to obtain precision you carefully need to adjust settings in the properties table, because of the lack of a measurement tool or clever object movement by snapping them together.
To end with
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that AnyCAD Free is far from offering a professional approach on the situation. The user interface welcomes you to unleash your imagination, but once you do, limitations and poor design get in your way. Overall, you can get a good result from it with a lot of effort.
