Wheelchair Ramp Design


Can anyone suggest a good program to use to draft wheelchair ramps for clients? Still using graph paper, etc. Thanks

Re: Wheelchair Ramp Design


Have you ever checked out google sketchup? It's free and pretty easy to use. I took a community college course on it and the required text was "Sketchup for Dummies" which is really helpful and inexpensive.

Google sketchup is a good, free place to start.

Re: Wheelchair Ramp Design


You might ProgeCAD software, they have a free 2D version of their IntelliCAD based cad program and it is a pretty good one. It is free but they ask for a donation to Doctors Without Borders or something.

http://www.progesoft.com/en/smart-2009#downl here is the site for the download.
