Yes, it does do those things too - but for someone that doesn't have access to those apps this is an alternative, although it does require a fairly faster computer with a fast connection. And while I thought the interface was a bit more intuitive, as shown on the tutorial vids - it does take some getting used to.

As you can see, I was able to add geometry - even if just a few lines, and once someone learned the interface to add remove elements easily. Regular detailed drawings could be achieved, you just need an initial DWG drawing to get to the editing interface. Although, on my computer it is a bit sluggish.
So either pay for a regular application, or use this free app to create line drawings of your ideas - the choice as always is yours! :D

Yeah, but they are basic drafting tools, so you can review and add suggestions to the drawings someone produced in the "paid" packages and sent your way. You *can* make a complete drawing, only you won't be having a lot of tools.

IMO, however, the most cheapest option is always good ol' paper and pencil ;). It is intuitive, can be worked on anywhere, and you won't be worrying about good connections and power going out.

Agreed

I always have my sketch bag with me.... I also have sketchbook pro for ipad to transfer those ideas into digital media for those quick ideas, as seen below

Ditto on the sketch! Reminds a bit of some of Spooky's stuff! Very cool indeed!

Your a lefty?
Who wuda thunk it! :D

Cool setup too! :)

Speaking of the right tools, I was surfing today and found a very cool professional 3D/2D technical app site called http://www.novedge.com that has just about every pro app you can think of, along with a ton of trial & free downloads for support apps ranging from viewers to converters.

Trial Versions:
http://www.novedge.com/Prods_search.asp ... RM=W&BID=0

Free Downloads:
http://www.novedge.com/Prods_Search.asp?BID=0&D_Type=6

Enjoy! :D

Thanks! :D
I'm hoping I can find more useful apps to fill in a few blank spots in my workflow! :)
