    You want us to use BabaCAD yet you don't appear to be using it yourself judging by your profile which says you are using AutoCAD 2004. Is that a legal copy?

    Default why not BabaCAD

    I can't force anyone to use anything. Long time ago, I was using legal copy of AutoCAD as base of Map 2004 at work, so when I was asked to register in this forum (and I didn't have any option to choose anything else than autocad) I choose AutoCAD 2004. BabaCAD is awarded by BrotherSoft's "Editor's Pick Award" this month (June 2012), immediately when it was submitted to brothersoft. So it is better to ask them about software or you can read about Editor's Pick award here http://author.brothersoft.com/pickaward.html .

    Are you the official or unofficial spokesperson for BabaCAD?

    What company created this program and where are they physically located?

    What do you know about the program itself? Strengths? Weaknesses? How does it compare to full AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT? What has been your experience?

    Don't know much about it, still using it about two weeks. For now, I can tell it can not be compared with autocad in any manner, but it is good for beginners and I think I will use it when I'm in run and out of workplacee, cause it's free and fast download and run.

    I like your timely and detailed response.

    The author is Mirza Coralic and he is a Bosnian. He is also an electrical engineer educated in Sarajevo. Can't say I saw anything in the product description that would make me consider using the program over any other free CAD software such as DraftSight but I'm sure it will appeal to a small group of people none-the-less.

    Free - fast download and it runs. The same can be said for other CAD programs such as DraftSight.

    What file formats does it support? Does it read and write to the DWG file format? If so, to what version? 2010? What file formats can be imported and exported and have you tried any of them? You have used the program for two weeks and seem to know very little about it.

    Sorry, i replied to you, but somehow it got cleared. I see dxf is only supported in babacad. I tried draftsight, it is very similar to autocad, but I uninstalled it cause I got warning that my graphic card is too old, and when i run it mouse was moving too slow, almost unusable. I hope they will fix it.
