    Great product but requires a little improvement. - 03 / 01 / 2013
  • By  valles "vincent"
  • The software allows the user to work fast and efficiently on a project. This software will meet the requirements for a building permit. No issues generating plans, however, recommended features may be to add vertical cutting plans (required for permits). The Improvements of v17 I have not yet tested yet.
