Aircraft design software

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I recently got back into building after having an accident that has left me with some impairments. I want to scratch build again but I'm looking for a design software that can help me with drawing and printing out pieces.
Any thoughts would be great.

Re: Aircraft design software


If you're looking for 2D, try DraftSight.
It's a lot like Autocad, so good for dwg and it's free
Good luck
