Setup and use QCad Professional for 2D CAD user:-) QCad Professional is a very powerful and easy to use CAD program for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It uses DXF as its standard file format. While other CAD packages get complicated to use and unclear, QCad Professional stays comfortable and even an absolute beginner can create professional drawings with a minimum of effort.

Easy to learn. You can use functions as you need right now without know the whole program in detail. Also very good for users who use a CAD days and night in a job.
(But you will love to use QCad.:-). Multi platform support: Works on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris x86 and SPARC, FreeBSD.
Setup coordinate system and save a template. Now you can start drawing. Normally, you dont draw on the Layer 0.
So just add some layers in the 'Layer List' on the right side by right clicking in the window or click on the plus (+) sign there. Add for example: Layer 'contour': - Color: black and white. Width: 1mm. Linetype: continues.
Layer 'axes': - Color: red. Width: 0.35mm. Linetype: Dash dot. Layer 'dimension': - Color: blue. Width: 0.35mm.
Linetype: continues. Note: Line width should not be 0 (zero) because you will not see on printer output on printer with 600 or more DPI. A solution is to reduce DPI in printer settings before you print to 300 DPI. But it is better to use 0.35mm line width. What you also should do (if you use not a metric system): Setup the coordinate system.
So go to 'Edit, Current Drawing Preferences.' . Paper: Choose Paper Format. Landscape or Portrait. Units: - Choose 'Main drawing Unit'. 'Millimenter' or 'Inch' (Imperial System). Length, Format: 'Decimal' (metric) or 'Architectural' (Imperial System).
Grid: - Make sure that 'Show Grid' is selected x. X Spacing: 'auto' - Y Spacing: 'auto' (NOTE: You can also enter here a value.).
Dimensions: - Some defaults. Then click the 'OK' button. You are nearly done. So save your setup for later usage.
Choose 'File, Save as.' - Save it as a normal.DXF file in a 'template' directory of your option. So then this is your TEMPLATE. Every time you need to do a drawing similar to this template, just load this template first.
(NOTE: You can find some pre-defined templates in 'Your-QCad-install-dir library templates' directory. There are typical DIN and ISO templates there.) Sure you can save your own template there or at any other place where you work. For example in your project directory. So you are done!
