Best CAD app, no contest
I have been using AutoQ3D on my iPhone for almost a year and a half now. I use it to design scaled models of real buildings. I am able to design the model with the actual dimensions of the real building, and then use the scale function to make it the actual size I want the model to be. I then send the drawings to a laser cutter which cuts out the pieces to be assembled. I am able to build the structure in the app in 3D to see if all the parts are going to fit and look how I want them to look. I have played around with making 3D objects like those seen in the pictures and videos and have found the program to work as advertised, but it is not what I primarily use the app for.
I have never used any CAD programs before, or anything like them. There is kind of a steep learning curve to this app. It took me a while to figure out many if not most of the functions. After having used some desktop CAD programs since, my guess is that if you are familiar with CAD functions, this app will be fairly easy to figure out. If you don't know CAD, this will still be a lot easier to learn that a "full" CAD program, but difficult nonetheless. It is not a casual drawing program. Its a powerful tool for creating DXF files on an iPhone. I've created many models and drawings to prove it, but I had to invest the time in watching the videos and researching how "normal" CAD programs work. I've looked at other apps for the iPhone and experimented around with them but the functions are very limited, and subsequently are much cheaper. This app is the only one I found that allows you to create CAD drawings. Some drawings I've made consisted of tens of thousands of lines and triangles. Yes, it ran a little choppy at that point due to the limitations of the CPU. But still impressive given the size.
I wish there was more documentation for how to use the many functions. The videos are a great help, especially if you follow along. Most of what I learned was by playing around in the program and researching functions on the internet.
Customer service has been amazing. The team is responsive, enthusiastic, and quick. I am pretty sure two of the updated versions were due directly to problems I brought to their attention.
I've looked through the other reviews here and the poor ones seem to generally fall into two categories: One, they are unable to figure out how to use the program; and two, the functions are limited. My guess is for the first category those people don't realize how non-intuitive CAD programs are. The program works like a 'real' CAD program, but those are going to take some investment of time and frustration to learn. For the second category, I don't think they appreciate this is on an iPhone (or non-desktop computer). I have had several people remark how they can't believe my drawings were done on my phone. There are not nearly the number of functions on the app as a real CAD, but you will not find another app that has nearly the capability of this one.
Bottom line is this is the best CAD app in iTunes, hands down. It is my most expensive app, but also my favorite and most valuable. I've spent hundreds of hours using it and say its well worth the money.
