I recently download DoubleCAD and have been working with it the last week or so doing my first project (plans for a chair). I have used TurboCAD in the past, and there is a lot of familiarity in using DCAD. Even though I have done a number of basic 2D drawings using TurboCAD and now DCAD, I am a generally a CAD neophyte and a lot of the terminology and functionality is unfamiliar. I was wondering if there is a good general reference on CAD that someone can recommend. I was in Barnes & Noble tonight and saw the AutoCAD for Dummies book, and was wondering if that would be useful, considering DCAD is supposed to be similar to AutoCAD.
Anyway, so far I really like DCAD. I had downloaded DraftSight and was a little lost with that. I was pretty much able to jump right in and start using DCAD right away, probably because of my prior experience with TC.
