I need to create a model of our hall to try out some tile patterns.
I've got a library of patterns in dwg and dxf format, but I've currently not got any way of using them. I only need to create a plan view of the hall (I have all the measurements) so a 2D system would do.
I've used AutoCAD in the past and my first paid job was writing CAD software (a firm called PAFEC if anyone's interested) so I know my around CAD systems. I've done a search, but there are a bewildering number of systems out there, and as it's been a while since I did any of this I've lost touch with what's good and what's not. As I don't have a lot of time to download and try out a lot of systems I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone had any recommendations.
I'm running Windows-XP.
I should add that I'm only really interested in loading the patterns into a drawing and trying out various colour schemes so the application doesn't have to be that brilliant at actual modelling.
