Ron in Ohio, One of the best uses of a CAD program, is the ease of making changes. For example, I design something and then go looking for the wood to make it. I can’t find a piece of wood that is the right size, so knowing the dimensions of the wood I have on hand, I can modify my drawing to accomodate the wood I have. This saves me from having to buy more wood. Many times, modifying a dimension just a 1/4” can save me from buying another piece of wood. I may have a design that I can cut from a 4×8 sheet of plywood. By modifying the design a little, I can get all the pieces from one sheet with little waste.
