Design Software

TMS09May 13, 2012

Hello everyone. First post here. Been reading the forum for a while and appreciate everyone's expertise.

I have seen some members reference using decks.com for their design but am curious to what others are using / suggest. Capabilities and limitations of the software would be very helpful. Thanks guys.

Ahhh, I forgot about sketchup. I used it once on a large commercial logistics plan when it first came out and it worked great. From what I remember, it used up a lot of space on my computer and I deleted it for that reason.

Maybe I will invest in a new laptop dedicated to design software and give it another go. Thanks for the suggestion, Steve.
