Re: OT: CAD software for drawing houses and other
lomodyj, I would agree with you on the use of 3D Home Architect if it wasn't for the fact that the title of the post says, "...and other 2D drawings." 3D home architect is a great program for those who are unfamiliar with computers and want to make house plans. My father, who has a 3rd grade reading level and only uses a computer to play solitair, has mastered the program and uses it frequently for his construction business. The program however has little or no capability of drawing in 2D for anything other than house plans and landscaping. I think AutoCAD would be a much better choice if you plan on using the software for more that house plans, and are planning to use it repeatedly. I'm not sure what it costs but I'm sure it's several thousand dollars, so it might make more sense to make house plans using 3D Home Architect and using the old drafting table for other things. That's just my 2 cents.
