Free alternative for 2D-CAD designers
Those, who just make their first steps with drawing software, will see one well-designed and decent interface. But those with much more experience in 2D-CAD drawing will see all the positive and negative sides of LibreCAD. Since it is a free product we cannot expect from it to be a top of the line product. Besides the command line and the status bar we would like to see the names of the icons shown under each one. This is very helpful because you can find the right tool or a feature easier. Of course any of the existing toolbars can be shown or hidden.
The application preferences are not too many but enough to define the basic needs of any user. Through the appearance settings you can change the GUI and the command language as well as the graphic view. You can also set the auto-save time and turn on the auto-backup option. But probably the default units are the most interesting feature which this program offers. Users can choose among the standard millimeter, centimeter, meter, inch, foot, mile units as well as among the weird ones like angstrom, nanometer, astronomical unit, light year and parsec.
If you need an introduction about how to use the basic LibreCAD features do not refer to the help file. Instead, you can visit the developer's website and click on the video tutorial link there which will redirect you to the well-known YouTube website. There is also a page on the Wikipedia website which is still under construction but it has a user's manual, a how-to section and a quick start guide.
LibreCAD 2.0.0rc2 is an application which can be used by beginners and advanced users too. Everyone may have its own criteria about how good or bad this software tool is. But from our side we can give it only a positive response and can encourage you to give it a try. Of course you cannot compare it with the leaders in this category but for a free-to-download product it deserves a respectful evaluation.
