Re: FREE From Autodesk - Really!!


i started to layout my basement office and it eventually just stopped letting me do any changes and bogged down. seems ok for simple things.
i'm starting to see more customers showing me printouts of programs like this to give me an idea on what they want. that's why i never got into selling design. that's what designers and architects are for.

It wouldn't let me place a base cabinet up against the wall properly. It wanted the side of the cabinet up against the wall, not the back. Laggy.

Self taught in eCabs, and in KyeCAD which is the first CAD program I learned. I can use AutoCAD, but I am slow on it.
