RiscCAD returns in forceBy Chris Williams. Published: 25th Jan 2005, 20:37:30 | Permalink | Printable
Hell of a price dropSoftware developer David Buck has released a new version of RiscCAD, three months after returning to the RISC OS scene. The engineering design software was previously published by APDL, but reclaimed last November by David. Release 8e of RiscCAD is the full package, originally priced 250 quid and now only 15 quid, and is RISC OS 4, Iyonix and VirtualRiscPC compatible.
As a 2D CAD application, RiscCAD packs a number of features, including support for "virtually any plotter" and symbol libraries. David began writing CAD software in the 1980s, initially for his Master Compact, and then later for his Arthur powered A310 Archimedes. According to an Acorn Publisher reviewer, "if you are seeking the means to create highly accurate scaled drawings then I can recommend [RiscCAD] without reservation".
