Q. Who uses AcceliCAD?
A. AcceliCAD is used by a wide variety of schools,
companies, municipalities, and individuals. Autodsys customers include
Oxford University, the Trane Corp., Hastings College of Law, Humana
Corp., Mid-States Controls Corporation, Kingspan Metl-Con Ltd, L-3
Communications Brashear, Cardno Australia, East Coast Truss, Inc., Moduline
Window Systems, City of Spokane and many others.
Q. How does Autodsys AcceliCAD compare to AutoCAD LT?
A. AcceliCAD contains many enhancements not found in
AutoCAD LT including LISP, SDS, and Visual Basic, all of which allow AcceliCAD
to be programmed and support add-ons such as AcceliARCH and AutoLINE as well as
many others. AcceliCAD also includes 3D Rendering and solid modeling which
AutoCAD LT does not have. Since AcceliCAD supports most AutoCAD commands and
has a price that is less than half of LT there is little reason to purchase LT.
Q. How does Autodsys
AcceliCAD compare with IntelliCAD?
A. AcceliCAD is based on IntelliCAD and includes all
of the standard features of IntelliCAD. Autodsys then adds its own
enhancements and functionality. Please click

good product at a very competitive price and that with our monthly updates and
customer support Autodsys has the best overall value.
A. AcceliCAD is intended to be like AutoCAD, using
the same commands and files. Therefore most books or classes on AutoCAD will
apply to AcceliCAD. The dialogs in AcceliCAD will look different but generally
will perform the same functions.
Q. Are there tutorials available for AcceliCAD?
A. Any tutorial, book, or class on AutoCAD will
generally be relevant for AcceliCAD since it uses the same file formats and
commands. Even the dialogs generally perform the same functions although they
might look a little different.
Q. I registered and received password, but can't see
how to download the trial verson?
A. The link is set in a separate email following the
first. If you don't receive it it could be because your email server rejects
automated messages. Don't worry though because we will also send you a
follow-up email which contains the links.
Q. I have registered AcceliCAD 30 day evaluation but
it's not sending me the authorization code so I can actually use it. What do I
A. The demo may be used without the authorization
code for 30 days by selecting 'Cancel' when asked. Authorization codes are
given once you purchase the software.
Q. The installation got to 99% and then stopped.
A. Before starting the installation please close all
other programs and disable anti-virus software which can interfere with the
installation. If you are using Microsoft Outlook you must 'Exit and log
off', not just close the window. If you still encounter problems restart
Windows and run the installation first thing before starting any other
