    PC Drawings

    I Use AutoCad 2000.

    This prog however has a high price tag & a very steep learning curve. There are other progs avail that will suffice. (i.e. visio)

    Best part of Autocad is that drwings are done in REAL scale. This allows accurate loop length data when doing RFH jobs.

    You may want to search for downloadable demos/trials to see what works best for you.

    Hope this helps..

    try your local cadd drafting service....

    ...cheaper than buying Autocadd ($2k) and learning how to use it (2 year learning curve)...or hire a student...
