Open source software for architects - CYCAS

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 81.208.83.248] on September 22, 2007 11:46 AM
For who really works in the architectural design, everyday, software must be effective, CYCAS (www.cycas.de) is a good choice compared with the low cost and the high architectural specific framework.
No matter if it is not open source, it works well, keeps mind free for design, has great integration with 2d architectural representation needs and 3d construction. It is a well suited working instrument, you'll never go back to other generic cad, simply doesn't have sense, even if they have fantastic functions.
About OSS the right choice is a mix of open and proprietary software, in mixed enviroinment as well, linux is perfect for a CAD workstation but sometimes win is better for some software.
