 **Is there any monetary incentive for users of TAD?**\\ **Is there any monetary incentive for users of TAD?**\\
 Certainly . TAD has a scripting system. You can create add-ons using that; and rent them to others. We will take  a small slice of the rent. So we make money, when you make money too. There thousands of calculations that architects need to do -- but often do not due to various reasons. For all you know you could solve a few of these calculations,​ and make add-ons (probes) that can be rented to others for a fee. Certainly . TAD has a scripting system.

 BIM is a term invented by Autodesk, to give a generic name to the category of software like Revit. ​ A //BIM// software talks about information inside the model of a building. That information need not be just the visual 3D of the building. It would be things like cost, properties of material, name of supplier and a zillion other stuff. BIM was coined only around 2007(?) or so.  BIM is a term invented by Autodesk, to give a generic name to the category of software like Revit. ​ A //BIM// software talks about information inside the model of a building.

 No. The term //Lite// is only due to a few geometric modelling limitations. Currently it does not handle some curves, domes, BRep meshes. Those are all being worked on, and then the term //Lite// would go away from TAD Designer Lite and it would be only //TAD Designer// We are committed to make even //TAD Designer// free, not just the //Lite// version.
