New Software Review coming soon
We have been testing v5 of a desibn software that is far easier to use than Autocad. cad drafting is made simple and so are the tradeoffs for a much cheaper software. we still like autocad as our number 1 cad drafting program. this new program is called chief architect and is very plain, however may be great for the not so bright contractors who could never master Autocad.
we will be adding a review to this site after we dig a little deeper. so far, here are the specs and a link to take a look. please note, this will never replace us. on the contrary, once the contractor tries this out and sees just how complex our job is, we will be more evalueate to them.
thanks for looking.....
