MacDraft PE is a simpler version of its bigger 3D brother MacDraft Pro with a more basic toolset and functionality.
The app has a very limited library although you can purchase many more from the developer website including architectural, electrical and graphic symbols.
Although it’s aimed at those that are new to 2D design, it does take a bit of learning how to navigate the interface and we thought adding basic elements such as windows and doors isn’t as clear and straightforward as it should be.
However, once you’ve got used to where all the tools are its surprisingly versatile.
It’s important to be aware that MacDraft PE can’t produce drawings of less than 17 inches and only supports a maximum of 5 Layers.
It also does not support DWG and updates aren’t free like they are in the Pro version.
However, if you’re on a limited budget and want something to get started in 2D CAD software on Mac, MacDraft PE is an excellent stepping stone.
