GstarCAD Standard

What is GstarCAD Standard?

GstarCAD Standard (and all other versions of GstarCAD) is an AutoCAD alternative, which means it can be used to perform computer-aided drawing operations. A lot of file formats are compatible with the software, including the common DXF, DWG, SVG, 3DS, and PDF.

Compared to its competitor, the GstarCAD series holds its own relatively well where CAD features are concerned. There are only 13 features all in all that AutoCAD’s commercial version boasts and the GstarCAD Professional version does not—and 8 features that GstarCAD Professional has that its significantly pricier competitor does not. For instance, GstarCAD’s Professional edition supports drawing comparisons and drawing locks, as well as UI file tabbing and Pline Booleans. Some of these are in the Standard version too.

The program is particularly known for its modular software design. This is partly why it can boast of good rendering and drawing speed: users can choose which modules—which of its functions or tools to load during runtime—and free up memory. This also translates to lower risks of program crash, an issue that plagues most of the full-featured raster and vector graphics editors. There are 3 versions of the software all in all: besides the Standard and Professional, there is also a Lite version.
