MacDraft Pro is aimed at CAD users of all levels but has enough advanced features to keep professional happy.

MacDraft offers a wide range of drawing tools including both ANSI and international standard dimensioning features. MacDraft supports both imperial and metric dimensions and is an ideal choice for those working in mechanical, architectural, engineering and technical illustration fields.

Most importantly for those that have worked with AutoCAD in Windows, MacDraft can import AutoCAD files as well as other programs that export to DWG and DXF. MacDraft can automatically readjust layouts for you or you can choose to manually configure them yourself.

The interface of MacDraft will come as a tonic to anyone that's only used CAD software in Windows. It's been tailored specifically for Macs with an elegant OS X look and feel. Even though this is a Pro version, it's designed so that beginners won't have a problem learning how to use it although for a slightly cheaper price tag without the professional features, a Personal Edition is also available for download here.

MacDraft is a powerful 2D CAD program for Macs that is suitable for all abilities.
