New drawing package

Postby senior » Sat May 31, 2014 11:53 am

I felt I was missing out on some high end sales due to the poor quality of drawing package I was using, so I've splashed a fair bit of cash and updated our package to the latest version, Articad V19.
Its a drawing package specifically for the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom market. Works by cabinets already being in the system which can be altered and saved and then drag and dropped around the room.
I've seen sketch up and solidworks and all the component based drawing packages but for ease of use this is our best option as it's a simple learning curve.
My business partner is proficient on it anyway as he was using V14, I'm just starting on it again as I feel I'll get left behind if I'm not careful, he'll end up as an airy fairy designer and I'll be workshop dirt, noooooooooooooooooooooo.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

These aren't my drawings just examples.

Thats what I'm running Bob,the difference between v14 and v19
is unreal. Get yourself an A1 printer, customers love it when you give them big drawings. I would say it gets me a lot of
work, been using it for the last 9 years

Looks very impressive - the cost although I'm unsure what it is must be neglible in comparison to sales

Thanks chaps,
I think we just have to treat it like a machine, if I saw a machine which would increase our speed or sales I'd buy it, same as a drawing package, just doesn't seem like you are getting a lot when it arrives in an envelope but costs the same as a 4 sider :lol: :lol:

so you need to buy a new computer system to go with it then ... at least you'll have something tangible to look at for the money :)
