QCAD is an open-source computer-aided design software for 2D drafting. It provides tools to enable designing and editing technical drawings, plans, and schematics in a straightforward interface. QCAD lets users create precise geometries by snapping points, drawing lines and circles with various construction options and modifying entities through operations like trimming or extending. The platform supports layers, blocks (also known as symbols or references), dimensioning, printing to scale on multiple sheets in a layout manager mode. Being highly customizable through scripting with ECMAScript (JavaScript) or through plugins written using C++, QCAD can be tailored for specific industries or personal preferences.
