The learning curve for these CAD programs usually is pretty steep for all. So depending on what you cut your
teeth on will probably determine what you use.

I have DesignCad Max 3D and am learning on that. Also have Sketchup (the freebie). I find DesignCAD pretty intuitive for 2D drawing, so I am using that for now. Haven’t used it enough yet to go to 3D.

I will say that TurboCAD has a ton of features and add-ons availible. Its a good program. They have several add-ons like Furniture Maker , etc. I have heard some discouraging reviews on that particular software however. The support is limited.

TurboCAD also has a steeper learning curve than most CAD programs that aren’t full fledged CAD systems, like AutoCAD, for example. But its also packed with features.
