Hi Clive,
For info, we are launching the second hybrid boat on Thursday, only 12m, 2x 12 kW electric and 2x 90 kw diesel. Electric set-up done on QCAD. :)

News on the second hybrid passenger boat: Launched and left the berth on electric power. Max speed close to 7 kts under two 12 kW motors.
Enjoy the pictures.

I am using QCAD mostly to create floorplans vis-a-vis the electrical bits (wiring and the like) of a building. Not too long ago, when a friend moved in a new rent, we have used QCAD very extensively to plan the space for furniture and things (that is, she commandeered and I did the eye-rolling bit). It was invaluable help, probably saving her a lot of frustration and me a lot of extra work.

There's always the little mechanical design things too, and sometimes just the general goofing around, just for fun and trying things out - you never know when will it come handy :).

Pro version here.

Using i primarily for plant installation drawings and also for cleaning up dxf files for cutting with laser or plasma cutters.

Also great for prototyping before going 3D.

We also have Autocad, but I rarely use it, it has become too bloated for a 2D Cad tool IMO.

Hi there,

in the meantime I now use QCad Pro also for model railroad track planning and there wrote some scripts (with help of Andrew, thank you). See
viewtopic.php?f=32&t=3171
for the current work-in-progress state.
