Sometimes you have to spend a little money to get the things you want out of life. I had been using a free CAD program to make some designs, but this program came with a catch. There was only so much that could be done with the program, and the only way to get the extra thing that I needed would be to use something a little more sophisticated. There was a better program that had revit extensions, which is what I needed, but I was too cheap to pay for it, so I looked for an alternative.
I asked around on some of the CAD forums for anything that would allow me to do what I wanted without paying for the other program, but no one was able to help me. Other people had run into the same roadblock before, and they couldn’t find a way around it, so they just went with the other program. There was no way around it, so I saved up my money until I had enough to pay for the new program. It took a couple of weeks, so I had to put my designs on hold.
Once I saved enough, I bought the new program and downloaded it. Once I installed it, I noticed how different the interface was from the old program that I had been using. Everything was easier to see, and I had a better time finding what I needed. Even the design tools were easier to use. Even before I got to the extension, the program had already become worth the price of admission for me. Next time I have a problem like this, I’ll just save myself the time and spend the extra bit of money to get a good program from the beginning. I can pump out designs at a much faster pace.
