Autodesk Introduces Project Cooper
Autodesk, the maker of AutoCAD drafting software has just released a free sketching/drafting program called Project Cooper. This is something that be a huge hit with DIY’ers that want to create their own plans for additions, floor plans, lanscaping projects and plans that require scaled drawings. Normal drafting (CAD) software is typically far too expensive for home owners and DIY’ers to purchase to use on small projects.
Create Scaled Drawings For All Your Projects
Most cities and towns now require scaled drawings for additions, decks and even large landscaping projects like fences and driveways. Now you can easily accomplish that task using the free software, Project Cooper, from Autodesk. I’ve used full blown AutoCAD for years as an engineer and it’s an amazing tool. I’ve been saying for years that someone needed to create a free version that home owners and DIY’ers could use for small projects. Needless to say I think this software will be a hit.
I downloaded the free version today and gave it a try. It’s very easy to download and use. Even if you’ve never used drafting (CAD) software before, Project Cooper is very intuitive and easy to use. The software comes with lots of pre-loaded drawing blocks of doors, windows, building components, electrical, appliances and many more. The standard blocks speed up the drawing process and give you really professional looking drawings.
The bottom line is this kind of software used to be too expensive and hard to use. Now with Project Cooper homeowners, DIY’ers and even small professional companies like interior designers, landscapers, furniture, fixture, and equipment providers, ceiling contractors and drywall contractors. I think if you give it a try you’ll agree with me. So go check out Project Cooper!
