Mr. Fisher As a draftman for a Structural Engineer, I would recommend to purchase AutoCad LT. A few good reason is that the drawing files are compatible with Autocad R12, R13 etc, and it is not $3000. There are a lot of things that you can add on to Autocad Lt also, you might want to check out the Autodesk Web page for further information on the software. Autodesk can be linked through the Cadsyst Web Page at http://www.synapse.net/cadsyst. Good luck, and feel free to ask any further questions, I will try to answer as much as I can. > _/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/ _/Marlou B.
