dff Good CAD software has always been something I have sacrificed when I gave up my PC to become an all Apple household in 1996. It's been a long wait but I don't feel I'm making a sacrifice any more. Google acquired a company called @last software and has continued to improve the sketch-up modeling software. This software removes so many tedious communication barriers with clients and manufacturers that I cant say enough good things about it. And if you want, you can even model your own house and upload it to Google Earth.
