Victor Abela, owner of AViCAD.com, comments: “Since 2011 we’ve been committed to offering a very reliable CAD application at a fraction of the price found elsewhere. That combined with our complimentary Mech-Q engineering software, makes AViCAD the best choice for many engineering firms and fabrication shops worldwide.”
AViCAD consists of 2D & 3D CAD software (which is AutoCAD-compatible) plus Mech-Q, a set of engineering tools which contains Mechanical, Piping, HVAC and Structural design.
