Many other CAD drawings with proper size and scale are available as are drawing templates for paper sizes from A4 through A0.
Both 2D and 3D views are linked together. As one of these updated the other gets correspondingly updated too. You are thus able to freely move around the views and do your work in whichever environment is appropriate. Import of digital photographs, the client`s home for example, can be easily imported. A photo editor available will let you do any touch up that may be required. 3D visualization is supported by real time rendering.
