More than just a Drafting Board

Layout is different to traditional Drafting tools. It gives you the power of a Drafting Board, combined with In-Design and Powerpoint!

And unlike most Drafting software, Layout gives you total control over the look and feel of your drawings, so you can make it suit YOU!

The 3D Model is connected to the 2D drawings, allowing you to focus on designing, not drafting (while doing both).
