Hey everyone, I just got a Mac Book and I am needing a CAD software that does everything AutoCad would do from Residential designing to city structure and planning/designing with plan and profile and point search on TOPO's. Can someone please point me in the right direction, or tell me a little about High Design and if it's worth the cost for what I need it for? Thx

Based on my experience and in comparing this software to other programs (MacDraft, Google Sketch, Cadintosh, TurboCAD , etc) this is the best CAD program on the Mac. Absolutely a joy to work with!
