Simple, yet powerful interface

Wooow! I havent seen anything so easy and yet very powerful in designing.


I've heard people say it has taken as much as 2 months to learn Autocad. While I can't say I'm a master, I was turning out shop drawings for our iron shop in 2 days. The hardest thing to adapt to, having used what are sometimes called painting programs such as Canvas 9 is with this program your always working full scale and scaling for printouts and such, although that may just be my own inexperience since I'm an artisan, not an architect. The main weakness I find is in terms of spacing out repetitive objects such as pickets or balusters, I have yet to find a simple way of doing this. A ruler on top and side would be nice for us dummies to do object placement also. I imagine trained architects will have less trouble w/ this though. The great things are the snaps - end & center of line - and stroke commands - zoom, last view and construction lines. I have been told they are working on making program work w/ scroll wheels which will be nice for navigating around large drawings and save on mouse hand fatigue. In closing I have to say I turn out great shop and presentation drawings with very little professional training and very little time to devote to mastering the program, I probably use 10% of what program can do and am anxious to learn 10% more, if you will be working on it every day in a few weeks you will be able to do just about anything you need to and then some. I highly recomend this product. Norman Campbell, President, Campbell Ironworks Inc.
