Question about Autodesk Autocad

2897 Views 12 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Jeff G
Due to me being a student (online/distance learning), I have an opportunity to purchase Autodesk AutoCAD Design Suite Ultimate 2014 for $149.99. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is $11,495.00.

I have very limited exposure to using software like this (none whatsoever with Autodesk), but I plan on eventually working my way into a design/build firm (Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise). I also fully realize that a program such as Autodesk has a definite learning curve to it, ergo, I want to find out if this program is worth the effort that it will take to learn it (of which I'm certainly willing to put in). If not, anyone got any better suggestions/recommendations?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

In your opinion, or anyone else for that matter, how does DraftSite compare to Google Sketchup?
Two totally different animals. SketchUp is 3D and DraftSight is 2D.
