Still the best cad app available to date


ArcSite is still holds the gold standard for professional cad apps. The free demo reveals all the its useful options for numerous design, construction and estimating applications...just to name a few. This app is superior in quality, support and ongoing new features....But is quick, easy and accurate to use also. Any questions are quickly addressed by support (Patrick). This is a serious business app...take it for a test drive!



I have been using for awhile now. Have not found anything else that comes close to meeting my needs. With ArcSite I save hours on every estimate I do. Very easy to make accurate and professional looking site plans, while on site. I was reading some of the other reviews about cost, but it is nothing compared to the money saved using this tool. Highly recommended.

Great folks there as well.

Way too expensive


This App is way too expensive for what it does and the interface feels more like an App that was developed as hobby. Just to give you a comparison: This App costs at least 15$/month, which is more expensive than the subscription for Microsoft Office or Photoshop.

I get that this has nowhere near the user base of Microsoft or Adobe and the developer needs to earn something, but seriously man, then don’t act like your are Microsoft or Adobe with an overpriced Subscription model. Charge 15 or 20$ for people to buy the App (like the majority of small developers do), but a 15$ monthly subscription for something so basic and simple is ridiculous.

Developer Response


Thanks for the honest feedback. Our price is based on the value that a lot of our customers were able to see once they fully utilize the application. We recognize that ArcSite is not for everyone and not everybody will see the same value, that's why we provide a 21-day free trial with no obligation. ArcSite does have a simple & easy-to-use user interface, which is one of the reasons a lot of users love ArcSite. ArcSite has been actively developed and maintained by a team of former AutoCAD developers for over 3 and a half years now. Underneath the simple UI there are a lot of powerful features like collaboration, list of materials (takeoff) etc., please feel free to join one of our webinars to learn more if interested.
