I have had some good experience with GoogleSketchup8 and AutoCAD 2013, though my computer has trouble running it, so I don't use it as much.
Oh c'mon, you're wasting so much time on it with Paint. In Inkscape would be much faster, and precise. Plus, you would not be bound by the fixed resolution. And yes, this thing require a fast PC. Here in Dubai a machine good enough for vector graphics is not a problem - just a tiny bit over GBP 100.
Although for the *****-shaped things like "30 SMA" you would better use a 3D Editor. That would eliminate the need to change the elements' size every time.

Not sure if this will have any impact on KT?
This is now trending on social media with mixed reactions. It seems too good to be true.

this may or may not impact Kingdom tower greatly


Saudi prince to donate $32 BILLION fortune to charity

Quote:
Saudi Arabian billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has said he will donate his $32bn (£20bn; €29bn) personal fortune to charity.
The 60-year-old nephew of King Salman is one of the world's richest people.
He said he had been inspired by the Gates Foundation, set up by Bill and Melinda Gates in 1997.
The money would be used to "foster cultural understanding", "empower women", and "provide vital disaster relief", among other things, he said.
Mr Gates praised the decision, calling it an "inspiration to all of us working in philanthropy around the world".
Prince Alwaleed is at number 34 on the Forbes list of the world's richest people.
The money will go to the prince's charitable organisation, Alwaleed Philanthropies, to which he has already donated $3.5bn.
The prince, who does not hold an official government position, is chairman of investment firm Kingdom Holding Company.
