We all have our choices in drafting software, and there’s three main platforms out there with several smaller companies making programs. What’s your poison? I’m a WYSIWYG man myself, with AutoCAD being my goto 3D platform.. But I also know Vectorworks too. So – what do you use? Post in the comments, I’d love to hear your preferences. Also, if you draft by hand (and many do) tell us!
