These days, many building firms are expanding their operation to include self-sustaining CAD departments that create workable blueprints and designs. Unless you’re a multimillion dollar company, it’s probably wiser to invest in temporary drafting instead. These services create working designs for your building projects and are a money-saving godsend for small-scale builders like you.
First, let’s take a look at the average price of CAD software. To be blunt, CAD software is expensive: expect to pay up to $1,000-$2,000 for any decent program. While some companies, such as Alibre, have offered discounts as low as $99, that is a very rare exception.
And even if you can afford to invest in CAD software, you are going to run into a serious brick wall when trying to use it. Simply put, CAD software is not exactly user-friendly. Even if you understand some basic drafting techniques, navigating and successfully designing with a CAD program requires years of training.
So, you think, you’ll just hire a full-time CAD engineer for your firm. Not a bad investment, if you can afford up to $75,000 for a CAD engineer’s yearly salary. Or if you can afford the thousands of dollars it will cost to upgrade your office to include the special needs of a CAD engineer, including the most up-to-date computers, brand new design software, and a high-speed internet connection.
