    hey,

    I would just like to first start off by saying yes, i have searched the forums and have found several pages about AutoCAD programs for mac, but none that fit my needs specifically. I do not need it for 3-D design. I want a program that i can use on my mac that is VERY similar to the program that we used at school - AutoCad: Educational Version. I just basically need it for house plan designs - floor plans... as well as outside front plans that show what the house would look like finished if you stood out front outside of it.

    If anyone can please tell me some programs that i could use. I have looked up programs like ArchiCAD, CADintosh.. etc.

    Thanks, Matt

    I'm an architect and I highly recommend Vectorworks 12. A great program, excellent choice. Take a look at http://www.nemetschek.net

    ive been looking more into these CAD programs and was wondering what anybody else would recommend. I will use it for 2D drawings mostly.
