    Default Looking for program like Autodesk Impressions?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Does anybody know if there's a program that exists like Autodesk Impressions, or maybe a plugin? I'm creating a map of an RV park that my friend owns and want a better look, kind of like a crayon look and much better gradient options. I'm trying to stay out of gIMP or Inkscape but I may be going this route after all. Which ultimately is fine, just seeing what's out there.

    I do know there's the installer still available but it's giving me problems because of it's legacy EXE. Thanks in advance!

    Wouldn't SketchUp be a viable option?

    Looks like you want 2D, correct? If so an "oldie but a goodie" would be M-Color
    http://www.m-color.com/
    Starts at $595

    Sure you can do a lot of this with Acad now and photo editing software but I think M-Color makes it a bit easier.
