    Still manually drawing radiant loops?

    I downloaded LoopCad's trial software today and played around with it for about an hour. I haven't figured out how to properly hit 3 outside walls in the same room yet but I'm guessing you can without doing it freehand? I've been drawing all my radiant loops, mechanical diagrams, and control schematics by hand forever. Does anyone else still do this or am I completely out of step? Any suggestions on your favorite software or what the learning curve is? Thanks. 
    It's all in the details.

    Wrightsoft software

    Wrightsoft was one of my favorites, when I was doing it

    I purchased LoopCAD last year for a couple of upcoming jobs and have been very pleased with the product and the Webinars that are available that show you how to use the product. Easy to upload the plans, set the scale, delineate the rooms, add windows and doors and then start drawing loops. Yes, there's a learning curve and it can be frustrating when you don't get it right. But if you use it regularly, it's a fantastic tool.
    Often wrong, never in doubt.
