Arcsite has increased my productivity exponentially
After years of drawing via the office drafting table and Mutoh Drafting Machine, Arcsite has given me the freedom to create in the field so I am on the jobsite to direct my crews and still knock out the drawings that keep us working. Having the ability to draw scaled details while meeting with a client at the project or being able to text or email them immediately so decisions are expedited is alone worth the cost. This is an app I literally use daily, and can't imagine being without. I've read the critical reviews that for the most part whine about the cost. These are either posted by professionals too cheap to invest in quality tools or wannabes that don't really have a need for a CAD app. Here's the deal, if you are an Architect or Design/Builder that actually spends time on your jobsites you would greatly benefit from Arcsite. Try it yourself and you'll be sold.
Great app. Nasty price
If this is your only CAD program and you can complete full drawing sets with it, you can justify the price, I suppose. However if you have a real CAD program that does 3D, automatic schedules, parametric objects, linked databases and a lot more this won’t be your only app. This will be what you might use for field measurements, setting up initial base plans, etc. when out of the office. That means using ArcSite but a few times per month, exporting data to your CAD program and moving forward in your main CAD system. The bottom line? This app’s subscription fees approach the cost of a full CAD program, yet have a much reduced feature set - never mind that it’s easier to prepare plans on a large screen workstation than an iPad. Professionals still need a full-featured CAD system, so for most professional designers ArcSite will be an but an add on for the foreseeable future, and a very pricey one at that. It’s a real shame there’s no “field” option at a more reasonable price for those who use this as a field tool instead of their only CAD system. It could cost less and be simpler, with just drawing, annotations and export tools. No takeoffs or even symbols needed since those would be done on the main system from integrated databases.
I used this program to draft an expansion design idea for my supervisors. It’s one thing to say, “hey we really need this expansion.” But it’s something completely different walking into a presentation with a design draft that outlines everything. Visuals make a presentation and this program helped me get my approval! Easy to use, virtually foolproof, and clean/concise. I am definitely recommending this to anyone who wants to design something tangible and let themselves dream a little. From homes to businesses, it all can be done with this program.
Way too expensive
This App is way too expensive for what it does and the interface feels more like an App that was developed as hobby. Just to give you a comparison: This App costs at least 15$/month, which is more expensive than the subscription for Microsoft Office or Photoshop. I get that this has nowhere near the user base of Microsoft or Adobe and the developer needs to earn something, but seriously man, then don’t act like your are Microsoft or Adobe with an overpriced Subscription model. Charge 15 or 20$ for people to buy the App (like the majority of small developers do), but a 15$ monthly subscription for something so basic and simple is ridiculous.
I have been using for awhile now. Have not found anything else that comes close to meeting my needs. With ArcSite I save hours on every estimate I do. Very easy to make accurate and professional looking site plans, while on site. I was reading some of the other reviews about cost, but it is nothing compared to the money saved using this tool. Highly recommended. Great folks there as well.
Might be okay for floor plans and architectural work but has no settings for more general CAD drawing of small parts. For example, the grid is locked at 36” which makes it impossible to draw something that is only 5” long. Also, all dimensions are fractional with no decimals in sight other than for arcs. Just a few little tweaks to these things would make it more universally useful. Then there’s the subscription model which, for a hobbyist like me, precludes using it beyond the demo mode. Really needs a purchase option too.
Great app, just can’t afford to use it.
This is my favorite design app but it’s not the one I use because it’s too expensive. I do mostly volunteer based projects so I don’t get paid must if at all and I can’t afford to pay the monthly fee. I don’t understand the pricing model. Seems like it could have a one time price like other apps. I would pay $100 for this one time but I can’t pay $15 a month for the the next 10 years or so. I just don’t understand the pricing, that’s why I gave it two stars. It’s easily a five star app if I could afford to use it.
Super cool program, but too expensive for a casual user
I used this app twice in my free trial. Normally I’m not adverse to paying for an app that I would use often and/or I find value in, but for a casual user like myself I just can’t justify the subscription price. It’s fun to use though and pretty intuitive and it helped in the two projects I wanted it for.
Powerful tools but app is out of date. No iPad Pro w/ Apple Pencil support
This app seems like it is just what I’m looking for when it come to marking up plans, I will not continue to use it however because it is not made for the iPad Pro, it does not take advantage of the bigger screen, doesn’t work with Apple Pencil so it doesn’t know the difference or a finger and the pencil. It would be great if it cold annotate and draw with the pencil only and just pan when you are using your finger on the screen. If this app ever works like that I would gladly pay the money but it’s not worth it in it’s current state.
That price though.... 👀
This is actually a pretty dang good app. Easy to get the hand of in real time. Very accurate and useful, but then there’s that price. I get it, you have to pay bills but dang... almost $30 a month just for a little more than basic controls... you need to cut your bills down or do a go-fund account .. that’s a bit crazy considering other apps are at least half that price and mostly same features.
Great software for quick and accurate Cad drawings. Customer service is quick and responsive. It's like the guy actually cares! This software once fully learned and tapping the creative plane can create anything. I just designed a house. Floor plans, Elevation, section...etc...the engineer was impressed.
Phenomenal drafting tool
As a home owner this app is great. It's fast and intuitive to use and very well designed for the iPad. I've been remodeling one of the rooms in my house and ArcSite has made the planning process much more accurate and reliable. With only a couple hours using it I could feel myself getting quite proficient, knocking out diagrams in mere seconds. My one gripe about it is the subscription only plan. I really don't want to have to keep tabs on my various software subscriptions, activating and deactivating them when I need them. So I just don't subscribe to software because frankly I don't need the hassle.
I works smoothly and has an impressive amount of capabilities. It’s also easy to use. I’m not an architect, and I was able to navigate it easily. I’ve been using it to design a gallery wall in my house, and it’s going to look beautiful thanks to this app!
Wonderful to use
Using ArcSite has been a breeze. It is very intuitive and easy to use right from the beginning. I needed this to draft up some plans for a project I am doing in the summer and ArcSite delivered. Highly recommend if you need to make CAD drawings!
First time user
My job requires me to pull take offs quite often, and I never could understand how to use Isquare foot or dropbox. My friend recommended arc site and it has been very easy to navigate and learn how to use it… Great job!
