“Ease of use and recognition – important benefits"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
The various types of tools and colors that this program offers are the best for me. Plus, since it easy to handle, it saves a lot of time that otherwise would be spent on trying to learn and understand it. Also, it is compatible with autocad, which improves its credibility and functionality to a great extent. It does, however, require a strong system to work on, so keep that in mind.
