    What's the best software for CAD drawings suitable for basic extensions and loft/garage conversions?


    By 'best' I mean suitable for planning applications.

    MS Visio is easy to use and good enough, even has a myriad of stencils for the subject your drawing.

    Go and get a demo via PC world

    Did you buy it?

    If you did, then how do you not know how much it cost?

    If you didn't buy it, do you use it?

    If not, then on what basis are you recommending it?

    I use AutoCAD LT its around a grand I believe and its not even the full version! Its not cheap but its designed for the professional user in mind not someone knocking out an extension once in a while. Architects take 7 years to qualify, name another profession that takes as long to qualify yet doesn't have wages far in excess of architects? Doctors, solicitors for example train for less time and earn considerably more.

    Hi,

    Have you tried IMSI TurboCad Professional 14 ? Its more than half the price of AutoCad LT 2008.

    Call Me for more info.
