SketchUp could not get cheaper and is easy to learn I forth the motion. Even Marc Spagnolo uses it!

Everyone has assumed that you are talking about a design or drafting program, if so, sketchup is what your looking for but if you have some other type of software in mind please enlighten us. aand welcome / sempre fi

Thanks!! I just downloaded SketchUp. I think it’ll be helpfull…...once I’ve figured out exactly how to use it. Doesn’t look to complicated once you get the hang of it.

Sketchup is one of those programs where it looks easier than it can be at first, It get’s easier the more you use it, that’s for sure. It sure as heck beats learning AutoCad though.
