    B a tad carefull offering Autocad on the forum. AFAIK, it's a licensed product so if you're gonna do it, a PM might be better.:thumb:
    No trying to be sanctimonious or anything, but a company I once worked for had an unlicensed copy and were fined £10,000 by AutoCad.:Eeek:

    Have you checked out SketchUp from Google? I use it for room design / extensions basic palnning, and with a 3d capability it's excellent for demo-ing soultions. It is really easy to use, and there is a community of users with predesigned templates you can easily download and incorporate / amend too.

    Google SketchUp

    Best of all is the price - FREE!
