Typical remote CAD office checklist

We are also happy to offer you free support to help with setting up your new office or home, by answering any CAD questions you may have.

Suggested CAD workstation

  • 64-bit Windows 11
  • Desktop or Laptop
  • Good graphics card (i.e. Nvidia or similar) with the latest drivers installed
  • Hard drive space 2 GB min. The more the merrier.
  • RAM 8GB or more
  • Mouse with scroll wheel and middle button (recommended but not required)
  • Google Drive or similar cloud sharing for backups (recommended but not required)*

* Convenient way to both backup or share files remotely

Suggested software

  • AutoCAD or IntelliCAD (we also offer AViCAD)
  • AutoCAD LT 2024
  • Add-ons for productivity (see our Mech-Q tools for example)
  • Excel or similar for doing schedules (LibreOffice is good)

Both our Mech-Q engineering tools and AutoCAD alternative (AViCAD) are available by monthly subscription  – each allowing you to cancel at any time. 

For those needing a new perpetual license (never expires, non-subscription) we will work with you to lower the startup cost.

If you need to transfer your existing license to a remote location (or home) – we can help you to do that. 

Check for the latest updates

As mentioned above, make sure your graphics card is up to date. Do a search for the manufacturer and the model of the card. Then look for driver updates, download, and run the installer. Be careful to only download directly from the manufacturer.

It’s always a great idea to be working with the latest version of software. Feel free to ask us how to upgrade.

We’re here to help.
