AutoCAD and QCAD

Would you be able to install ProE and AutoCAD on the library computers? It would be beneficial to students who do not have easy access to them since they are only available at the MEM lab.

Thanks for the question. Here at the libraries we can only place site licensed software on our systems, and your recommendations don’t fall into this category. But we do have QCad available to us, which we could install if there was interest. Although it’s not as full-featured as AutoCAD, it does offer some useful drafting tools. You can exchange files with AutoCAD by exporting and importing as DXF.

For more information about this software, check out the author’s website.

If you think this would be useful to have on library computers, let us know by commenting here, and we’ll look into it.
