What do others use for layout and HT design? Since a complete design has architecture, lighting, conduit, framing, etc plans - there are lots of opportunities to create lots of plans.
I've used Sketchup quite a bit and feel pretty proficient with it, but I'm looking for something that's a little more robust. I don't have any real complaints about Sketchup (other than its printout capabilities always seem really weak) , but I'd like to find something closer to what some commercial software offers. It would be nice to be able to print out plans that actually look like they were meant to be printed out. Visio has its place, but it has plenty of limitations too.
Has anyone else found a likable product in between Sketchup and say Autocad ($4k, Looks like even LT version is $900). I'm thinking more along the lines of drafting, and less along the lines of "drag the pretty furniture across the room" type layout software.
Hope my post makes sense!
