Softdesk 8 Upgrade Alternative

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Are you still using Softdesk 8 and AutoCAD R14? You know what–we don’t blame you. That is great software that still compares favorably to what is available today. Unfortunately, you know the pain of keeping up with the constantly changing AutoCAD file formats.

You’ve probably looked at AutoCAD MEP and Revit MEP and are underwhelmed by those options. We would recommend you take a look at Design Master as an alternative.

Why choose Design Master?

  • Works in the latest versions of AutoCAD
  • Gives you the option to work in 2D or 3D
  • Includes all of the drafting functionality of Softdesk 8
  • Integrates design calculations with the drafting

Why not choose AutoCAD MEP (formerly Autodesk Building Systems)?

  • Autodesk has already positioned Revit MEP as the replacement for AutoCAD MEP

Why not choose Revit MEP (formerly Revit Systems)?

  • Does not run in AutoCAD, forcing you to learn completely new software
