Frequently Asked Questions  

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 <here> to see a list of features exclusive to Autodsys AcceliCAD.  We are also free to set our own pricing and support options, as well as determine the frequency of updates that we offer.  I think you will find that we offer a very 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 do?

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.  What happened?

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 programs.
