GStarCAD Gets “Ribbonized”

Chinese AutoCAD clone developer Gstarsoft sent me a couple of screen shots of GStarCAD 2011 that show that it has been “ribbonized”.

I think the less I say about the font used in the ribbon the better. I hope this has something to do with the Chinese font used on the computer where the screen shots were taken. According to the press release:

Designers can interact with the user interface more efficiently than ever before. With contextual ribbon tabs, users can easily choose many context-sensitive tabs, and the tools whenever they need are always at their fingertips.

But nevertheless the old menu interface will be kept as an option “for the comfort and convenience of various CAD users“.

    Cloning the Autodeskspeak too, I see. Nice question mark icons; does the rest of the product show the same attention to detail?

  • Bhagini

    But the new version has not released, and it is being “ribbonized’, why do you pursue the perfect? Anyway, it is a big improvement!

  • William

    The new interface looks nice anyway. When I click the “Gstarsoft” , it links to http://www.gstaricad.com which I suppose it’s their partner in Croatia, as I know the url should be en.gstarcad.com.

    I wondered if someone would notice those question marks. ;-)

    I think GstarCAD is well suited Alternate to AutoCAD in India. I tried the trial copy of the software and found to be awesome. And also it is available at reasonable price in Indian Market. Persons who wants to be legally protected with Good CAD software at low investment, you can choose GstarCAD which will satisfy all your CAD requirements. Coming GstarCAD 2011 ribbon interface it is very wonderful and superb. Thanks to GstarCAD team.

    I really think all whatever-CAD should stop that crazy idea to be like AutoCAD, also, their marketing campaign must be more honest and say: This is a legal CAD, cheap and it’s all you may need to simple drawing tasks.

  • http://www.deelip.com Deelip Menezes

    Amen.

  • Bhagini

    GstarCAD is a legal one, and it has its own intellectual property, but nevertheless, I donot like ribbon, I wish it can have many other good functions to better suits indian market, not aways similar to AutoCAD .

  • Heven

    Why I still can not find the Ribbonized GstarCAD, it is also the old interface

  • Gurrinder

    The Ribbonized GstarCAD is V2011, only Beta is released, maybe release at the beginning of next year

  • Dakshesh

    Sounds wonderfull! But I’ve never used it.
    Our company are used to AutoCAD to design bridges plan.
    If we change AutoCAD, do we need to spend long time learning it?

  • Monica

    The operation custom is completely same between AutoCAD and Gstar
    CAD, so you don’t need to learn again.

  • GstarCAD India

    GstarCAD2011 has ribbonized user interface. You can check it with our beta.

  • Bhigini

    I have tried the GstarCAD 2011 Beta, its Ribbon user interface is very OK, but I didn’t find any other new performance

  • Gstarcad India

    GstarCAD 2011 version has lot of improvements which includes, Ribbon user interface, Automatic transformation from 3D to 2D, new functions such as Field, Overkill, 3D Modeling Sweep etc. It is enhanced with operational performance and many function improvements.

  • Dakshesh

    I found that few software companies are willing to give away funds in interesting games of entertainment.
    I have received an E-mail informing me of prizes-delivery. It seems that GstarCAD is a gennerous and financially liable software company. I like it!

  • Kajol

    Chinese CAD software industry has developed fast in the past years and we Indian software industry companies will have fruitful cooperations with Chinese partners in the upcoming new year. Today is the last day of 2010.

  • Lokesh

    I’m trying to using Ribbon and discover the new features of AutoCAD, but here I saw GstarCAD also has Ribbonized interface. Are these two CAD softwares totally same with each other? What about the cost?
    Maybe it’s a good choice to have a new experience.

  • Monica

    the ribbon between GstarCAD and AutoCAD is the same, user do not change their habit.

  • Monica

    GstarCAD2011 will be released on 28th of Feb officially.

    Please some professionls give me some suggestions

  • Monica

    i think you shoud find some companies who are in CAD industry or GIS industry

  • Bhigini

    I think it depends on what kind of the customers your CAD software is made for, and then decide to find the company who are also doing business with such customers.

  • wxq

    Our platform product is GstarCAD2011, it is mainly used for AEC and mechnical industry.
    Thanks Bhigini

  • Monica

    Draft Sight will become a big competitor of some CAD software which are based on IntelliCAD, such as: GstarCAD

  • Bhigini

    GstarCAD is more similar to AutoCAD, and it is better accepted by training institute, ex. ribbon interface is also similar to ACAD
