  1. Great giveaway! Even Ashampoo 3D CAD Professional 4 or this, is a true winner! Simple interface to design depends on your taste.

    Thanks…

  2. Please enter my name in the drawing, and Thanks for making this contest possible.

    I have not used Ashampoo 3D CAD Professional 4, so there’s not much I can say about it. However, after reading its features in the description above, I CAN say that it must be awesome!

  3. I have used CAD programs for several years but could never afford.to but any of them. This program is by far
    a very complete CAD Program with great promise/
    Just wish the cost wasnr’t so great, as money is tight. However, aside from that I have tried using this and found it fully sound.
    If anyone truly would perfer a reliable CAD program This would be it. If the owner contunies to develope this program, it would
    be comprable to Autocad Lite I feel. I hope this helps someone not sure about what they are looking for.

    Respectfully,

  4. Thank you for the giveaway! I like Ashampoo software and Ashampoo 3D CAD Professional 4 looks like a very powerful CAD application. A license would be highly appreciated!

  5. I have land I’ve always planned to build on. Planning with landscaping, etc., looks very exciting. Since this is the Pro version, does it mean that I could prepare the documents necessary to get a building permit?

  6. I like designing House or something like that because I am just newbie to 3D Design.
    So I really need something which is simple but powerful. Experienced with other products of Ashampoo.
    I think this new offer will be the best offer for me to start learning new thing around 3D Design. This Ashampoo 3D CAD Professional will really
    help me developing my sense of 3D Design which pro’s did.

    Please kindly to count me in too..

  7. I haven’t had the opportunity to use the Ashampoo 3D CAD Pro 4 software, so I cannot say anything good or bad about it. I do, however, own several other of their fine products and am so pleased that I wouldn’t even consider switching to other developers’ titles. If this product follows suite, and I am confident it will, it should e a real blockbuster of a CAD program. I want it !
    This looks like a great replacement for the Visio 2D stuff that I routinely have to produce for clients who are, for want of a better term, “graphically focused” visual learners.
    I must thank Ashampoo and DCT for providing this opportunity.

  8. This looks like a great piece of software. Would love to see the output on the 3D printer a friend just acquired.

  9. Ashampoo makes GREAT software. I have been using CAD software for over 25 years – mostly AutoCad and Bentley MicroStation. This program loooks to be more user friendly and would fit my needs perfectly. Thanks for the opportunity to win this.

  10. I have a number of Ashampoo products and they consistantly are high quality. I will be interested to see how this CAD program compares with AutoCAD.

  11. I am currently involved with a couple of projects where this program would be a Godsend. My chess club has acquired an essentially old barn which we want to refurbish and re-design as a chess playing club and/or tournament playing hall. As a proud owner of several excellent Ashampoo products I can only hope and drool over the prospect of acquiring this program!

  12. Ashampoo is the first company which presented to me a giveaway soft. Free and without no obligations!!! It was many years ago. From their soft my giveaway collection` s begins. I always looked at this soft on their site and thought that it would be great to have it, because it is SO wonderful! Thank u if I `ll be lucky to have, if NO – my really great congratulation to the winner because he\she will be an owner of the really wonderful soft. 🙂

  13. this design software from Ashampoo will be useful indeed, my brother in law is an architect engineer, well he draw house and building manually, i think this software will help him a lot.
    please count me in, and thank you for the opportunity.

  14. A while back I wanted to design a tool cabinet I was going to build. I almost bought a 3D modelling tool but found you could not save files in the reasonably priced “handyman” version. I tried open source and struggled for days to master the most basic features.. In the end, I resorted to hand drawing a scale model. I have a home renovation coming up and am wondering what to do. Spend hundreds or hand draw plans. I have used Ashampoo products in the past and find them excellent. I would be really grateful to get my hands on this piece of software. I am sure looking at a 3D result will make the renovation much more of a success.

  15. with this application can be more focused my energies to the idea and not for other things, thanks for this giveaway
