i have been using auocad for some time, but for me its just to much for simple and fast drawings, so i found a program called SketchUp wich works great with 3D drawing, its simple, verey simple to use and highly recomended.
been using autocad for a number of years now...sketchup is great, too. i've used autodesk revit for the past two years...
I work as an engineering assistant for a civil engineering firm. i have used auto cad on a daily basis for the past 5 years. i have been an assistant cad manager for the past 3 years. i have extensive knowledge of the software. the software is very powerful if the user knows what they are doing. i have seen some drawings on here (mp3car.com) that aren't that great. my guess is that they don't really have a full grasp of the program. in my oppinon, sketchup is crap. you might as well not even have a keyboard when using it. the latest itteration of autocad (2007) has seen alot of improvements as far as 3d stuff goes. it is alot easier to make and edit complex 3d objects. if anyone has any questions about autocad, feel free to PM me. i will answer them to the best of my ablility.

I don't know what it is about AutoCAD, but I've always had a knack for it. Went to work for an architect the summer between Fresh-Soph year of HS, as a draftsman, and by the end of the summer, I was showin' the college guys I worked with new stuff. The next summer I was in charge of the full-house 3-D projects. Too bad I didn't realize how much I was worth, 'cause I don't think $7.15/hr was the goin' rate, even then!
Play with it, 'til it's broke.
