Designed for CAD users of all levels, this software offers a full complement of drawing tools as well as both ANSI and international standard dimensioning capabilities. Its multilayered, scaled drawing environment supports both feet/inches and metric dimensions. In addition, MacDraft Pro offers linked dimensioning to automatically update dimensions as you modify components.

MacDraft Pro allows you to save symbol libraries which can contain all of your commonly used drawing items. Microspot also supplies at extra cost, a symbol library of 2000 items comprising architectural, electrical and graphic symbols. Perfect for producing simple sketches or complex drawings, Microspot MacDraft is excellent for mechanical, architectural and engineering design, as well as for technical illustration. MacDraft is so easy to use it appeals to those seeking a powerful, low cost solution for their drawing and drafting needs.

This new version of MacDraft is the faster and better than ever before, you will be creating useful drawings in no time using all the benefits of the new features:

The customizable toolbar saves you time going to the menus for frequently used commands. The drag and drop library palette makes finding items easier and so its much faster to use than previous library utilities. The new layers palette stays visible all the time amd gives constant feedback of which layer you are editing simplifying operations.

Images should not need to be preprocessed now with the image menu and new resize palette for images bringing more functionality within MacDraft. We have added new templates and sample libraries to help you get started with ease.

Combine these with the new coordinate system, larger drawing size, better rulers, customizable scales and the clipped text feedback and you have the simplest and fastest 2D CAD program on the market with the genuine easy to learn Macintosh interface.

MacDraft Pro is working great for me!


I have been a MacDraft user for many years on dozens of projects and am now using the current version (6.0.1) with the Lion OS (10.7.3). I am having none of the problems NYBlues54 describes. In fact, I have had no crashes nor lost data of any kind. If you are interested in a very powerful and yet easy to use 2D drafting app, I don't think you will find a better one for Macs. But, you don't have to take my word for it (I am not affiliated in any way with MicroSpot other than being a satisfied customer) because Microspot offers a free 14 day trial on their website. I wasn't sure that this version would work with Lion and installed the free trial to be sure. It works fine - at least it does on my iMac. I have now bought the Pro version.

One "feature" that Micospot doesn't make clear in their description of the less expensive Personal Edition (PE 6) is that it can only produce drawings smaller than about 17-inches. The Pro version removes this limitation. I am using it to make 2x3 foot ("C" Size) drawings. This app can export these drawings to a pdf file which I take to my local printer who prints them for me ($1.00 per sheet). They look great. The Pro version also has other handy features like Layers that are absent in the PE version. I would like some way to rename the layers, but we seem to be stuck with "Layer-1", "Layer-2", etc for now. That's about the biggest problem I have found.

Fantastic App/Program - Great for Beginners And Professionals!

Beyond Basics

MacDraft gives me the ability to do high production in minimal time. I researched other CAD programs but found MacDraft to be extremely user friendly as it is designed to make you feel like you are working on a drafting table. Its easy to use tools help with the layout process, especially the drag and drop libraries of commonly used clip art items that make the drawing process quick and easy.

In addition to drawing home plans with MacDraft, I use this program daily in other aspects of my business. I can design brochures, business cards and flyers with it. It is my main "go to" program for almost everything I do.

Technical support is available via phone, iChat and email, and I have always found the people to be helpful and very knowledgeable about their product. The developers of MacDraft are constantly working to improve the program and keep the users up to date.
