Re: PowerCadd 10

In my last post I said that I was going over to the dark side and using Revit. I bought a new Mac Studio, loaded Parallels and Revit (trials) and then spent a number of very frustrating days looking for the shear simplicity that exists in PowerCadd and SketchUp. Now in my 60th year of doing what I d...

Re: PowerCadd 10

Goodbye PowerCadd It has been 33 years and you have served me well during that time but it is time to move on. The office I work with is all on Revit so today I decided to make the jump, I will also be leaving SketchUp behind. I have ordered a new Mac Studio and a 27" monitor and I will run Parallel...

Re: PowerCadd 10

Being a user since 1990 (PowerDraw 3) I now see the future is in the 3D environment. I am an advanced user of SketchUp, building construction models of our projects detailed in every respect. I have recently become aware of a SketchUp extension called Condoc Tools which enables a seamless export of ...

Re: PowerCadd 10

I am also 78 years old, I have used PowerCadd since 1990, running a 2017 27" iMac with two drives, one with the latest OS and one with Mojave to run PC, yes it is a pain switching back and forth but it does work (normally takes 2 minutes or so). I don't know a thing about programming, it is a foreig...

Re: New PowerCADD screenshot!

Report on my separate start up disk: I purchased a Samsung 1TB SSD drive and loaded Mojave on it all with PowerCadd and some other basic applications. When I do a restart from OS Ventura it takes about 1 ½ minutes to load. Everything runs really fast loading PC etc. The only draw back is Mojave does...

Re: New PowerCADD screenshot!

My patience is running out, because of the PowerCadd delay I am 4 versions of the MacOS behind, I can not update SketchUp from 2021, other programs are also not able to update. I think I have a solution which I should have thought of before, I have cloned my Mojave OS to a separate start up drive wi...

Re: New PowerCADD screenshot!

With all due respect to Todd and others doing the work but this is becoming a real problem. The rest of the world has moved on and because I am locked into OS Mojave I am left behind. My other major program is SketchUp and I can not upgrade to SU2023 I downloaded a very valuable extension to SU call...

Re: New PowerCADD screenshot!

Thank you David and Todd for the update as a long time user I have never given up on PowerCadd.
Todd all I have ever asked for is a brief note saying it is in the works, yes I know it is a lot of work but communication is also important.
Thank you for all your efforts.

Re: New PowerCADD screenshot!

As a 32 year+ user of this software I have to ask the what's the problem and why can we not have some form of communication with the developer? Todd are you still involved? What's happening? As a long time user I am available for Beta testing. Hello out there is anyone home? ................ cricket...
