I’m not sure how to be succinct with my question. There are references to several different software programs and my head is beginning to spin. I’m trying to decide if I need to learn another program or two.
I use AutoCAD LT everyday for architecture and I understand its advantages and limitations. It can be very rigid, but also very precise. A lot of the new topics lately have mentioned Fusion 360, but that seems to really be for 3D, and complex parts. Is there an advantage to using Fusion 360 over AutoCAD for the GF?
Inkscape vs. Illustrator - I dabble with Illustrator and also use it for my architectural practice so I’m familiar enough to be able to work through things. But, there are more mentions of Inkscape that Illustrator. Is one better than the other for what we are trying to do?
I also love Sketchup for roughing things out in 3D. It too has limitations like the way it draws a circle in segments. But, I can model it in Sketchup and then export to an AutoCAD file or pdf and bring into Illustrator.
I guess my short questions are, should I learn Inkscape and Fusion over Illustrator and AutoCAD for any reason? And, is there a program that I’m missing out on to easily build in 3D space that is better than Sketchup for the GF?
