    What are you all using to draw your floor plan?

    I have PDFs of my house blueprints but they have too much detail. I suppose I could screenshot them and painstakingly remove all the unncecessary stuf but what a pain.

    What is everybody else doing?

    I use Visio. Not the best (IMO), but get's the job done.

      I use SmartDraw, has capabilities far beyond what I require for floorplans.

      Very impressed with it.

          I have to agree that SmartDraw is awesome for this job. I've used Visio at work, although it was some time ago. I really like SmartDraw, and have since buying it I've found other things to use it for.

            For free you can do a flooplan at http://www.metropix.co.uk/mtpix/index.aspx

            These are cool looking ones like you would see for real estate sale. Very easy to use and you can save to GIF. Do all floors as one plan then save and cut and past each floor to its own file. Very professional looking. For a reasonable fee they will also convert into a 3D plan.
