Get this FREE CAD program from IMSI/Design. This Free program got a 5 Star rating from CNET and will do an outstanding job at working with drawings and details in the WinBidPro software to create your own shop drawings. If you find that more power and features are needed, you can upgrade to DoubleCAD XT Pro and get all the feature of the latest full AutoCAD program, for a fraction of the cost!
AutoDesk (the makers of AutoCAD) sells a program called AutoSketch which can be found for around $200. A little more costly than QuickCAD (the version it replaced) was, but it very easy to use (for a CAD program) and plenty powerful for creating professional shop drawings. Search for AutoSketch on the web to find the retailer of your choice.
