    I use AutoCad on Windows to draw Kitchen hood instalation layout plans, I just got my first Apple Computer, a SR Macbook Pro that I payed for myself and I was wondering what a good Alternative to AutoCad would be. I Dont to run Windows on the Mac because I dont want to defeat my purpose of getting a Mac.

    So does anyone know?

    It might be a good idea to visit Architosh for this one, there will be a heavier concentration of people who live with Mac CAD tools every day.

    There is nothing as good as AutoCAD for Windows or Mac. I would suggest running it in Parallels

    Vector Works is a credible option. I've not used it in quite a while, but there was an OS X version produced. Pretty sophisticated and not cheap, Mac and Windows versions available.
