    "Not much to say about AutoCAD, it's industry standard for a reason. It is very intuitive and makes 2d and 3d drafting very simple. It's very expensive to license and requires updates often but it's a must have in your skill set and tool box. "

    "Pros: Very affordable compared to Visio and if needed you can even export into Visio which is cool. Very user friendly and easy to use. Cons: It consumes abundant resources, its installation is very slow and it is very complex so you need to know it to be able to use."
