Frequently Asked Questions
What happened to ChoiceCAD / TrueCAD?
AllyCAD, ChoiceCAD and TrueCAD have always been the same product, but AllyCAD is simply the latest version. In October 2002, we decided to standardise under one brand name (AllyCAD) in order to simplify world-wide support.
Can AllyCAD read ChoiceCAD / TrueCAD files?
Yes, the file format is identical.
Will I have to go through a learning curve?
AllyCAD is the up-to-date ChoiceCAD and TrueCAD with all the menus, snaps and geometry features but it is of course a much later version with many improvements.
Will Archimate / Mechmate work with AllyCAD?
These add-ons (produced by other companies) were designed to work with an older version of AllyCAD/ChoiceCAD/TrueCAD and will no longer function in AllyCAD. We have however introduced Architectural and Mechanical Toolkits in AllyCAD, which have similar functionality to these add-ons.
Can I easily upgrade to AllyCAD?
Yes, the file format is identical so loading existing ChoiceCAD and TrueCAD drawings is very easy. The interface, menus and keystrokes are the same, which means that you will be up to speed in no time at all. You will also have access to new and improved AllyCAD functionality, in particular, the new sought-after Toolkit functions.
