CAD software

What is everyone using for CAD software to draw up their floorplans and such? I have seen so many good plans, but I am still using a pencil and graph paper...I would like to be able to get with the technology!

Re: CAD software

I use Adobe Illustrator CS4. works for the type of layout I want.

Some just use MS Paint and draw it up on there. it's little less accurate but does the job if you just want to build a basic floor plan thats kinda to scale.

Re: CAD software

I've been playing with for awhile now. It's pretty good for overhead visuals to monkey with. Best part is that its free and on the web so you dont have to worry about loosing it or making copies to send or whatnot.

I started with just a basic idea of how big a 40' bus is and all of my plans are on a single sheet and use the same dimensions. When I finally can afford a bus, I can make the measurements accurate and finalize a set of plans. But for the mean time, nothing is set in stone, so I set some sizes that I know, and just adjust others to look about right.
