The AutoCAD will be for my personal laptop. Our top guy (for the steel construction company I work for) is going to input all the specs on the materials n such, then I'll be turned loose to get to know the program and familiarize myself with it. I know it's not going to happen over night, but for a pay raise, I sure as hell dont mind learning!
I think I have a copy waiting for me, but if something doesn't pan out I'll let you guys know. thanks for all the offers, I really appreciate it

If you're only working in plan, get with someone who is familiar with the software. There are 20-30 basic commands requiring about 2 hours to learn. Otherwise, you will wade through a text book for weeks.
